Mist Twist 

​Facial mists are refreshing, soothing and deliver a variety of benefits to your skin. 

Whether you're looking for a primer, an anti-ager, a mid-day pick-me-up or hydration, there's a face mist out there to take care of it.

Flower Power

There's a lot of action in this bottle. The mist delivers lightweight anti-aging hydration that lasts all day, courtesy of a blend of natural humectants, and bioidentical Hyaluronic Acid plumps up skin. It also minimizes pores and enhances your glow.

Hand-harvested from an organic lavender farm in Half Moon Bay, California and distilled in small batches, this does everything from promote blood circulation, heal and disinfect cuts, reduct the appearance of scars, treat acne, and mend skin irritations.

Taking The Floral Waters

These gorgeous hydrosols are hand-blended with water from a Hawaiian waterfall and come in delicious scents like jasmine (totally addictive!), rose (seductive!) and frankincense, which according to lake + Skye founder Courtney Somer, is "the Middle Eastern equivalent of sage":"It clears out bad energy and brings in the good."

Coco Glow

Snagging a bottle isn't just helping your skin - it's also helping a rural village in South India where the coconut oil is sourced. Cocovit provides jobs to 40 families who were previously homeless and sends 65 kids to school. The blend of coconut water, aloe vera water, witch hazel, dead sea salt, honeysuckle flower extract, coconut oil and a blend of essential oils delivers antioxidants and cytokinin to reduct the appearance of pores and leaves skin glowing.

Roots and Stems

Consider this a facial in a bottle: Designed to have the same effects as a steam facial, apply to cleansed skin and massage in to lock in moisture and allow your skincare products to absorb better. Formulated with 100% pure argan oil to nourish and protect, Konjac Root Ultra Filling Spheres to smooth and plump, coconut water for moisture and electrolytes, and multi-fruit complex to exfoliate and stimulate natural collagen production, it will smooth and soothe the skin.
