9 of the best face mists for cooling and hydrating the skin

Often overlooked and generally underrated in a skincare regime, the best face mists definitely come into their own in hot weather. They provide an added boost of moisture throughout the day (when you need it most) and the latest technology ensures that you are delivering high powered ingredients to the skin for a serum-like boost of energy. The Spa Man is an avid fan of the face mists and keeps a selection of three or four of the best face mists on the market on his desk each and every day. Here is my pick of the best face mists around today.
