This multi-tasking mist tones, tightens pores and gives skin an instant boost of radiance. Make-up artists use it as a setting spray backstage at fashion shows, as it can be used under or over your make-up to make foundation stay put for longer. The aromatic essential oils in the formula are also perfect for calming the mind (while the turkey burns in the background).
