Evian Brumisateur Natural Mineral Water Facial Setting Spray
$18.00

This classic facial mist provides a balanced boost of hydration. Similar to our favorite rosewater spray, this one is more on the skin-care side of the spectrum and lighter than your average heavy-duty setting spray, but it still provides a beautiful finish to your look. A light misting over makeup can revive the color throughout the day, too!
