Beauty: Cooling Mists for Summer.

Monday, 14 July 2014


With the weather getting increasingly hotter, and many of us heading overseas for our summer holiday now is a good time to make sure you have a few essentials in your beauty cupboard to ensure you keep cool. Cooling mists are a must have one everyones shopping list if you are going on holiday..or are planning to get yourself out there and enjoy the sunshine we are having in the UK at the moment. There are a wide variety of sprays available on the market. Today I am going to share with you the ones I have in my stash.

First up, we have the Peppermint Cooling foot spray from The Body Shop, if you are someone that suffers with hot feet this is a must! Obviously by using any form of spray or mist, it is going to be a quick fix, however spritzing a pump or too of this minty goodness on my toes after walking a long distance or while sunbathing on the beach is such a nice relief.  The fine mist instantly cools and refreshes, leaving a slight minty fragrance behind – those of you that aren’t a massive mint fan, the scent doesn't linger too long. For £6 you can get a 100ml bottle, which I feel is good value for money, it’s definitely a must have for your beach bag when you go away!

Facial mists have become fairly popular in the beauty world over  the past year or so. I’m sure many of you can hold your hands up & admit you purchased a bottle of the Caudalie Beauty Elixr? I never did because I wasn’t a fan of the scent. I do however have their other offering which is the Caudalie Grape Water which came in a set that I was gifted by the lovely Charli. This is a great mist to have in your handbag for those warmer days, a light spritz all over your face and it instantly cools you down. I wouldn’t say this has a very strong scent but there is a little something there. If you wanted to go for something that was completely hypoallergenic then I would suggest something along the lines of the Eau Thermal Avene water spray or La Roche Posay thermal Spring water spray. An added bonus to having these mists on hands, is that they double up as pain relief if you are suffering from sunburnt skin.

Finally, a little extra product I found in the depths of my beauty stash. The Botanics Organic Rosewater toning spritz is something I bought on a whim when boots have had their 3 for 2 offers on, I don’t really use it as a toning spray like suggested, but it works very well as a refreshing mist when it’s a bit warmer. It’s at lower end price wise out of all the mists I have mentioned so far which is a bonus. Sometimes a product label can say it’s to be used a certain way, but it’s nice to break the rules if it’s suitable! So this is one to look out for if you’re looking for something new to try.

What will you be using to keep yourself cool this summer?

Much love,
