Feel like your face is always dirty? Suffering from a hot or dry climate? Need some instant refreshment? These organic face sprays can help!

It’s the season to embrace the magic of organic face mists!
I absolutely adore facial sprays. They’re the perfect antidote for sweltering summers, and are especially welcome when they’re infused with botanical concoctions that are specially designed to promote healthy glowing skin.
This year-round beauty staple is not only perfect for scorching summer days, but is one of my must-haves on long-haul flights too.
What a face spray can do for you
Although they may not be a high priority on your beauty shopping list, I can definitely state as a beauty expert and makeup artist that organic facial mists are a multi-functional beauty must-have. They can be used to:
- hydrate the skin
- soothe irritations
- impart a youthful glow, immediately
- set your makeup to perfection
- boost your mood through their scent
- provide refreshment on hot days
How to use organic facial mists
On the hottest, most humid days, give yourself a treat by storing your spray in the fridge and spritzing liberally for an extra burst of cool.
To use, hold the product away from the face, close your eyes, and spray the facial mist starting from the forehead to the neckline.
Organic face sprays aren’t just for summer, though. The winter months can be very drying, too! I’d suggest spraying your face three times a day:
- Once in the morning when you wake up. Afterwards, moisturize, then apply makeup. Add an extra spray to set your makeup.
- In the afternoon, give yourself a spray to refresh your makeup and revive your mind
- Spritz yourself after cleansing in the evening. Then, apply a serum or face cream before bed.
Whether you love the scent of coconut or roses, need something with astringent qualities or anti-ageing, there’ll be something for you from our list of natural and organic face sprays.
They’re also all vegan friendly, and are perfect for boosting your skin’s beauty routine right now.

Kora founder, Miranda Kerr, says this is one of her favourite organic face sprays. She states that she uses it especially on the many long-haul flights she takes around the world. We love that it’s over 87% organic, and vegan friendly.
Best for: Citrusy aromatherapy based refreshment
This is one of the most science based organic face sprays! It features a hydrogen molecule that’s twice the weight of the molecule in ordinary water, which makes D2O 10% heavier – and thus, more hydrating – than regular H2O. It can be used to set minerals after makeup has been applied or hydrate parched skin, especially in dry climates.
In addition, those with oily skin can use this facial spray in lieu of a traditional moisturizer. The skin becomes extremely hydrated, supple and fresh. D2O is also ideal for cosmetic surgery and laser patients, particularly during dry, flaky periods.
Best for: Very dry skin; post-cosmetic procedures
Refreshing and uplifting, this alcohol-free mist uses the scents of Himalayan cedarwood, Indian Lime and an Asian citrus fruit called Narangi to add a zing to the senses and revive your energies.

Best for: Overall re-energising and revitalising; clearing the mind and refreshing the body
Price: Around $52
Herbivore Botanicals Hydrating Face Mist Rose Hibiscus was created with pure plant actives and no nasties at all. This is another one of the best smelling organic face sprays!

Hibiscus promotes collagen growth, while witch hazel tightens the skin and minimizes inflammation.
Best for: Skin that’s prone to redness
This refreshing floral mist acts as a toner with its 21 high-performance ingredients to deliver moisture and create a plumper-looking appearance. The all natural formula also promises to enhance the performance of moisturisers and serums that follow its use, while natural humectants help draw moisture from the environment for extra hydration.
