After doing my top five favourite stores, I thought I would do a top five facial waters (I see a theme here!).

So first of all, what are facial waters for? Basically, a multitude of things. You can use them to take off the first layer of your make-up or any light eye make-up. You can use it after washing your face as a toner to remove any excess dirt. You can play spa and use in before or after face masks to cleanse and refresh the skin. They are great for perking you and your make-up to make you feel a bit more awake. What else... hmm, you can use it if you have gone a little bit overboard with the powder. Plus if you shop for the right water with the best ingredients for your skin it can help to brighten, minimise pores or hydrate!

Dior Instant Cleansing Water
This is the product I turn to for a gentle quick clean (as the name suggests). Those early uni mornings where I need to refresh and cleanse my skin quickly? Well this baby does the job. It's also great for removing light eye makeup. I have never found this drying and love it so so much. Expensive but a nice little luxury.

Botanics 100% Organic Rosewater Toning Spritz
To find such an organic product for such a low price truly is amazing (£3.33). The scent of this is just turkish delightful (sorry, I just had to!) and it being in a spray bottle works for a multitude of things (see above). What I prefer this for? I prefer this for a little post cleanse gentle toning action as I find it to be very hydrating. Plus it helps remove any nasty chemicaly water from your face.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir
Need I say more? I love this product. This reins supreme in my eyes. It may be a little strong for others but personally I will repurchase this til the day I day - or the day they stop selling this which will ultimately be the same day (I jest, I jest). But this stuff is seriously packed with great ingredients and makes for a magnificient toner but an even better pick-me-up as the pepperminty goodness really does refresh and awaken the skin. A revision time must-have if you ask me!

Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Face Mist
The luxury mist. This too has wonderful ingredients and not too many of them which makes it great for all skin types - even sensitive. It is magnificently simple yet incredibly hydrating and feels ever so fresh. This again is one of my multi-use favourites and I really do use it for everything but almost always whip it out on pamper evenings! 

Melvita Orange Water
This little gem came in a beauty box and I have fallen in love with it. It is quite refreshing but nothing as pungent as the Caudalie beauty elixir so makes it great for all skin types. I adore using this as a refreshing spritz or post cleanse. My favourite way to use this is to spray some into the palms of my hands and gentle press it into my face. Soothing, hydrating and refreshing... what more could you ask for?

What's your favourite facial water?


  1. I've never tried a facial water, but I have really dry skin so have always been meaning to try one but never got around to it. After reading your post, I defo want to try the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, it sounds amazing.

    1. It is quite expensive so I would say to try the travel size. It looks small but it really does last well and the spray on it is nice and light and spritzy - if that makes any sense? haha x
