The Holy Grail Facial Mist



Facial mists seem like one of those redundant items in your skincare regime that you don’t really need, but on the contrary, I find myself reaching for my Neal’s Yard Frankincense Hydrating Facial Mist several times a day. It is a divinely scented multi-purpose product and in my opinion the most effective and well-priced facial mist on the market at the moment. Here’s why you need it in your life.

Unlike a lot of other overrated and overpriced facial mists such as the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, this one from Neal’s Yard really does hydrate and rejuvenate your skin. Many facial mists are marketed as all natural but then contain quite large quantities of alcohol, which is really going to dry out the skin. This one from Neal’s Yard however is 98% organic and contains a blend of frankincense, neroli, cinnamon, patchouli and silver fir oils, aloe vera leaf juice powder and my star ingredient, sodium hyaluronate aka hyaluronic acid. These ingredients refresh the skin, add radiance to your complexion and an instant boost of hydration due to the hyaluronic acid. This is the only facial mist on the market that I’ve come across that actually contains hyaluronic acid so NYR definitely get brownie points for that.

The scent is gorgeous and if you love the smell of frankincense as much as I do, then this one’s for you. It’s such a versatile product as I use it morning and night as my toner in the standard Cleanse-Tone-Moisturise mantra that most people have. I also carry this around with me and spritz this on my face throughout the day when my skin’s feeling a little dry and looking a little lacklustre. It’s also fantastic to use over make up towards the end of the day when everything starts to look a little bit drab and you need a quick fix before after-work dinner or drinks!

In terms of price point, a 45ml bottle will set you back £11, which is comparatively a lot cheaper than most other high-end facial mists. This definitely gets the stamp of approval from The Beauty Boardroom and is worth a try if you’re looking for a facial mist that’s more hydrating than your average. Check out this product on the NYR UK website here and US website here.
