Make Your Own Facial Spray

So I'm kind of obsessed with facial spray, I started using it in the winter for extra moisture and seriously cannot get enough of it!  It's been a great way to get an extra dose of hydration after cleansing and throughout the day for my very dry skin.  I also love how it nice it feels (especially in the summer) to give my face a refreshing little spritz whenever I want!  My favorite way to use it though is right after I wash my face to spritz my skin and then applying a facial oil to lock all that moisture in, my skin always looks amazing after I do this.  

I've been using the Mario Badescu Facial Spray and while I really like it, I've been dying to make my own (which isn't surprising considering how much I love DIY beauty).  In my own spray I wanted to use similar ingredients to the Mario Badescu spray, like rosewater and aloe, but also include coconut water and alkaline water.  Rosewater, aloe water, and coconut water are all soothing and super hydrating, which makes them the perfect ingredients for a facial spray.  Alkaline water balances skin's pH, which is especially important after cleansing, and doesn't dry skin out like traditional toners do.  Instead of just plain alkaline water though I decided to use blk water (which is why the spray is a blackish color) because it "infused with naturally black fulvic trace minerals," which "contain an abundance of natural plant sourced nutrients" and makes the spray extra beneficial for skin!  

While this spray isn't the prettiest (thanks to blk water), it is sure to make your skin look gorgeous.  Also don't be afraid that it doesn't smell pretty either because of the way it looks, the only ingredient that is scented is the rosewater so the spray smells like roses.  Below are the ingredients and (really simple) instructions to make this facial spray, which will make a great addition to your skincare routine!

-Small spray bottle
-2 tbsp. rosewater
-2 tbsp. aloe water
-2 tbsp. coconut water
-2 tbsp. alkaline water
-1 tbsp. filtered water
{Note: I used a small spray bottle so you can increase the measurements for a larger one.  To do this add equal parts rosewater, aloe water, coconut water, and alkaline water (ex: 1 cup of each), to one half part filtered water (ex 1/2 cup).}

-Combine rosewater, aloe water, coconut water, alkaline water, and filtered water in a spray bottle.
-Gently shake.
-Spritz on face after cleansing and before moisturizing, to set makeup, and throughout the day for a boost of hydration.

Have you ever made your own facial spray before?

  1. I haven't made my own facial spray, but I am currently using and loving the Mario Badescu one everyone seems to love. This one looks easy to make! Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is such a cool DIY! I've never made my own facial spray but I love the idea of creating one! I literally just tried the Mario Badescu spray you rave about yesterday (my coworker brought it in and I was so excited when she offered to let me try a spray). I definitely want to make my own though, such a fun little project (:

  3. This seems so simple to put together! I can't wait to give it a try.

  4. First of all, I love that rosewater! Second of all, I'm obsessed with hydration mists so this is right up my alley. Thanks so much for sharing!
