Face mists have to be one of the easiest products to use. They are fuss free and all you need is a few sprays then you are ready to go. They are soothing, refreshing and hydrating, so when you’re on the go, they can be your saviours. What would be your top 3 face mists to try out? 

There are many facial mists out in the market, some hydrating, some soothing or dewy, so some for everything. When there are so many to pick from, it is really hard to decide which face mists to try out. All you need to know is what you need, then your options will narrow down.

3 Light Face Mists to Try Out

To Get Rid of Oil

If your skin gets oily so quickly and turns you into a shine ball then you might want to check out La Roche-Posay Serozinc Spray. Serozinc targets blemishes and excessive oil. You can use it before your moisturiser or whenever you feel like your skin gets a little bit shiny. Once your skin absorbs this spray, you will be left with shine-free and mattified face. It is supposed to be good for tightening the pores when used regularly, however I can’t say anything about that claim. All I can say is, this is a must-have product, if you have oily skin.

To Refresh and Soothe

Don’t you like that refreshing feeling you get, when you wash your face and feel the water hitting your skin. Now there are waters in cans, which might give you similar feeling even when you’re on the go. Avène Thermal Spring Water can actually be used for many things. It is not just a basic facial mist. If you have sunburn, irritated skin or all you want is refreshment when it is hot outside, this will help you with all of them. It is basically pure mineral rich water! You might wonder if it is worth paying for just simple water, all I can say is even though it is just water, it’s worth it. Unless you’re living on the mountains, it is not easy to find fresh thermal water, so with this can everything is easier. You can use it over your makeup too, just make sure to wait till your makeup sets (especially mascara).

To Set

Powder is he best friend of oily skins. It helps to mattify everything and give you a few shine free hours. Well these are the good bits, how about the powdery finish? Luckily there are sprays that can help you to have flawless and powder-free looking makeup. You can use MAC Fix+ before or after the makeup and it will give you glowy looking makeup. It won’t fix your makeup as the name suggests, however, you can use something else for it.

Have you tried any of these face mists? Which products would be in your top 3 light face mists to try out?

  • I really need to give face mists a go. My skin is oily so La Roche Posay sounds like the perfect brand for me.


  • The Avene one is amazing! I absolutely adore face mists – there is something so lovely about using them.

    Georgia | The Weekend Attic

  • This is so helpful ! I’m often overwhelmed by the extroadinary amounts of different types of face mists , I get really oily skin so I’ll definitely be trying that one out ! have a lovely day 🙂

    lots of love, Marianne xxx


    • If you get oily, then definitely ret out serozinc 🙂 Have a lovely day x

  • I don’t use many face mists, expect for the Serozinc. And I like it, even though I don’t believe in it shrinking pores.

    • You’re the expert of serozinc, so if you say that, that must be it 🙂

  • I love thermal water spray and I’ve tried the Avene one which I love. Another that I am a fan of is from Vichy but frankly I don’t feel the differences between from Avene and Vichy, both are equally as good.

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • I used a small bottle of Vichy and I couldn’t notice a difference as well. They are just thermal waters, at least they come handy when I can’t wash my face but need refreshment 🙂

  • I haven’t tried the other two but I really like Serozinc! I think the Avene one would be so refreshing too!

    I love face mists and my top favorites are from Urban Decay and Pixi 🙂 Love your picks! Next on my list is MAC Fix+. Have been wanting to try thos out from long!


    • Pixie one is on my wishlist, I need to get my hands on it!

  • MAC Fix+ is one of my favorites! I’ve repurchased so many bottles of it. I love the Avene Thermal Spring Water. I need to purchase another one as I lost my last one, and I really want to try the La Roche Posay Serozinc spray. Last I checked it wasn’t as easy to get a hold of in the US so I need to do some more digging to find it.

    Nida | Caked To The Nines

    • Serozinc is one of my favourite, it is really good at oil control and mattifying the skin. I hope you can find it in the US x

  • I loved this post my dear, keep up the good work!!!!

    • Face mists are refreshing, I can’t stop using them 🙂 x

  • I love Fix + too! I love Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist and Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist – I’ve tried loads but keep going back to those two xx


    • I still haven’t tried the hydrating milky mist, it has been on my wishlist for a long time! x

  • I’m a fan of all 3 brands but I haven’t tried any of these – they sound handy with it being so hot outside!

  • I love face mists so i will 100% be looking into these! Thanks for sharing!

    Nati xx

    • My skin is the same, that’s why I can’t stop using serozinc. I’d highly recommend it! x

  • I love using a good face mist, especially in the summer. I haven’t tried these ones before, so thanks for the share 🙂

    • Can’t imagine hot summer days without a face mist 🙂

  • Kay (shoesandglitter)

    I’ve actually only ever tried one fact mist – a rosewood one in one of my Glossyboxes, but I wasn’t too impressed with it – perhaps it just wasn’t right for my skin type! I do like the sound of that first one on your list, my skin is super oily so that could be quite good for it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your recommendations, hun! Kisses. x x x


    • Anne recommended the serozinc for oily skin and I am so happy that I got it, it really controls the oil and mattifies the skin! xx

  • Lenya

    Looks like we have something in common 😉 I love the Avene spring mist, it’s my life saver in this heat and I couldn’t live without my mac fix+

  • These sound lovely. I love the refreshing feel of a face mist. Especially in the summer.

    Gemma x

  • It looks like I’ll have to check out La Roche’s spray! I’ve tried their skin care products, but they were a little too harsh for my extremely sensitive skin. I’ll have to check this one out, as I don’t think it’ll have the same effects and it does sound like a perfect match for my skin. I’ve been using Andalou Naturals’ brightening misting spray and have loved it, I always feel nice and refreshed afterwards. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have the most amazing week ahead!



    • Serozinc is great for oil control, it mattifies my skin and it comes really handy in hot summer days! Have an amazing week ahead, beauty! x

  • Cara E

    I really need to try the La Roche Posay spray, heard so many awesome things! I personally love the Lush tea tree face spray x

  • Lauren Letizio

    I have been loving face mists lately!! I will have to give some of these a try!!

    • Face mists are fuss free and perfect for hot summer days! x

  • I love face mists so much! I’ve used fix +, Caudalie, and some korean brands. Avene and evian are on my list of ones to try!


    • I want to try Caudalie one, I wonder the effects of the grape water on the skin!

  • I love the La Roche Posay and Avene mists! I think despite having oily skin I prefer the Avène just because it’s so soothing and calming 🙂 I also think the actual mist itself is finer for the Avène water. I have just subscribed to your blog on Bloglovin and I look forward to seeing your content. I would love it if you could take a look at my blog! 🙂

    • I love both of these facial sprays. Depending on how my skin is acting, I use them in rotation or sometimes use both of them. Thank you so much 🙂

  • Roberta Romeo

    I have to try that Serozinc spray cause my skin is a lil bit oily lately :/
    I like the idea of a refreshing spray that also makes my skin matte! Thanks for the tips darling!

    • Serozinc is perfect for oil control, get your hands on it! x

  • I’ve tried the Avène Thermal Water. It obviously wasn’t life-changing, but still very nice to use. I have to get my hands on Serozing – I’ve had it on my wishlist for way too long.
    A face mist I really like is Pixi’s Hydrating Milky Mist.

    • It is not life changing but it comes handy when you can’t wash your face because of makeup and you need something for refreshment. Anne recommended serozinc and I’m happy that I got my hands on it, it mattifies the skin! Hydrating milky mist is on my wishlist, I want to test it before getting it.

  • I was just talking about the Avène thermal water yesterday!!! I love anything avene actually and these days i’m aching to just have a calming day to pamper myself! here’s the link to my story!

    • Avene products are good, I only tried a few of them but I am sure I will be getting more 🙂

  • Oooo I almost bought that La Roche Posay spray the other day!! I settled on their sunscreen instead. Definitely want to try it now and putting it on my list for my next Ulta run. Great spray picks! Mac Fix+ is definitely a cult item and one that will always stand the test of time. 😉

    • I can’t go a day without using serozinc, it helps to mattify my skin and it perfect for hot summer days! I keep repurchasing Fix+, I love how flawless it makes my makeup!

  • As you know, I’ve been trying the Serozinc spray by Laroche Posay for a few weeks now, and now that you mention it again, I didn’t tell you what I thought of it! After a while it started to work and I do find that it helps with oily skin – except when it gets too warm, then the effect isn’t strong enough. But on a day-to-day basis, it is indeed quite good to help the skin stay clear and keep it less oily!

    • When it gets too hot, most of the products fail to do what they suppose to do. Overall, I am happy with the result, it is mattifying and it takes the shine away 🙂 x

  • I’ve never tried a face mist before – didn’t know of the benefits, so this was an interesting read! I do have a spray that’s cooling and supposed to set makeup – I use it in summer when the commute to the office is super humid!

    • Setting sprays are great, especially when it is hot outside then your makeup doesn’t melt.

  • I actually had no idea about the La Roche Posay facial mist! Thank you so much for this Ela, I really need to go out and purchase this now!

    I seriously love mac fix+. I have been wanting to try serozinc but have yet to get my hands on it.

    xo, Christina

    • Fix+ is one of my favourite spray, I love how flawless it makes my makeup! x

  • I need to re stock on MAC Fix +, it’s such a great multi tasking products and a full sized bottle lasts for ages! At the moment though I’m loving the Avene Thermal Water xox

    Beauty with charm

  • I have MAC Fix + and will have to try it on my face. I’ve only used it to intensify color from my eyeshadows. These are good to know. Thanks Ella!

    • I use Fix+ on my face when I accidentally powder a lot, it helps to get rid of that powdery look!

  • Great post.!I’ve only tried the Fix+ and the Avene,I really want to try the La Roche-Posey one,but it’s not available on my country.
    I have a post about Fix+ and setting sprays in general on my blog.


    • Oh no, if you see serozinc anywhere, then definitely give it a try!

  • I’ve actually heard that the La Roche-Posay one helps to get rid of the little small colourless bumps on your skin for some people.
    Aleeha xXx

    • I use serozinc to get rid of that oily look, it helps with mattifying the skin. x

  • Great roundup! I agree that the Avene mist is so ultra soothing and I’m finally getting to try Serozinc soon and cannot wait! xo


    • Cool, I hope you like serozinc, it is one of my favourite spray! x

  • Nadia

    I need Serozinc!! I almost raised my hand when you mentioned a shine ball, hon 😀 lol
    MAC Fix+ is an ultimate favourite. Such a lovely post & fab recommendations. Mists & setting sprays are so important and quite underrated sometimes.
    Since I feel like we have similar (if not the same) skin types, these are recommendations I am definitely taking on board! <3

    • You should definitely check out serozinc, it is really good at oil control. My skin looks matte after using it 🙂 x

  • I love face mists, especially the hydrating ones. These are great picks. The only one I haven’t tried is the La Roche-Posay Serozinc Spray. I will check it out! x

    • If you have oily skin, you should definitely check out serozinc! x

  • The Sunday Mode

    I have the Serozinc but I haven’t really given it a proper go myself yet. I know because of the zinc in it its supposed to be calming so I actually passed my bottle onto my mum who has rosascea and she’s liking it so far!


    • I have oily skin and I don’t know what I would do without it. It controls the oil and gives me matte skin!

  • I’m obsessed with face mists – I actually have all of these :’) I love Serozinc when my skin is oily and spotty. Otherwise I use the Avene – it’s so refreshing! Totally agree that Fix + is amazing for getting rid of the cake and ensuring everything looks fresh and seamless!

    • Sometimes when I am in hurry, I apply so much powder then fix+ makes everything better 🙂 x

  • I love the idea of a refreshing face mist!! I always think that they would be a great idea for bringing along during airplane travel as your face tends to get dry and tired.
