Having a well-suited toner or mist in your arsenal can be a deeply underappreciated tool with a wide variety of benefits. There are an endless supply of options with formulas that range from soothing and calming to clarifying and acne-fighting, leaving you to decide which actions you want to supercharge in your routine. A face mist can facilitate face oil absorption, provide a hydration boost midday, and even be a way to set makeup and add a glow. We rounded up eleven fan favorite mists that cover the spectrum when it comes to skin types and needs. No matter your key ingredient, smell, and finish preferences, one thing’s for sure — once you have a mist in your skincare cabinet, you won’t want to be without one.
