Most of the beauty products that come in contact with our faces are selected with military precision – we’re willing to blend multiple shades of foundation in an attempt to create the perfect one, we’ve played trial and error with countless skincare routines before settling on one combination that actually works, and there’s no face mask fad that we haven’t already experimented with. But it’s a whole other deal when it comes to face mists, right?
Some swear by them, others dismiss them as just another bottle that takes up space on your beauty shelf. But as it turns out, if chosen correctly, there’s one that is just perfect for you – whether you’re looking to soothe stressed skin, get a gorgeous glow, or protect your face from the elements. Not only do face mists offer a quick fix to treat any skin concern, but they also refresh instantly – even as humidity levels hit 90 in Dubai. Here are Savoir Flair’s favorites.
The Pollution Protector
Ren 'Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist'
Protect against pollution and free radicals with this skin shield in a spray. 100 percent vegan and enriched with biosaccharide gum, zinc, manganese amino acids, and Sophora Japonica flower extracts, it forms a non-greasy, undetectable barrier to ward off dangerous, damaging, and aging aggressors. This means wrinkles will be kept at bay and skin’s natural defenses will be reinforced. Win-win.

There’s anti-aging vitamin A, brightening and collagen-boosting vitamin C, protecting vitamin E, and free radical-fighting vitamin D. It also smells sublime thanks to a beautiful blend of lavender, orange, and rose, helping you switch off and unwind. Sleeping Beauty, eat your heart out.

The Probiotic Pick
Zelens 'Z Balance Prebiotic & Probiotic Facial Mist'
If you thought probiotics were solely reserved for your morning yogurt, think again – they’re also the secret to superstar skin. How? By slowing down the aging process and protecting and restoring skin from within. This mist from Zelens combines a unique blend of probiotics and prebiotics to leave skin looking and feeling smooth, supple, and more radiant. It also helps skin maintain a healthy microflora and draw in moisture (and keep it locked in) thanks to plant humectants and shiso leaf extracts. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

The Hydrating Hero
Dr. Barbara Sturm 'Hydrating Face Mist'
When we heard that skin guru Dr. Barbara Sturm was launching her first ever face mist – just in time for summer – we couldn’t contain our excitement. Needless to say, it didn’t disappoint. Boasting one of the finest forms of hyaluronic acid alongside purslane, aloe vera, lemon, prickly pear, and broccoli extract, it’s the next best thing to giving thirsty skin a big glass of superfood-infused water. It also heals, soothes, and helps protect against free radicals and irritation. An in-flight essential if ever we saw one.
