Makeup can’t cover all of your imperfections. Spray on these face mists to perk up your skin mid-day and leave it restored and balanced

Face mists are kind of the underrated heroes in any skincare routine. Whether they work as toners, post-cleansing, as makeup setting sprays or as a mid-day touch-up, they're often a godsend in this climate. But as our demands on our skincare increases, so has the technology and ingredients that go into even the humble face mist. Here we have rounded up five kinds that do more than just refresh your skin.
