The Body Shop Mint Mattifying Face Mist £7, thebodyshop.com
Face mists are usually designed to put moisture back into the skin, so it’s unusual to find one that instead minimises shine.
This one, however, contains kaolin clay powder (so shake before using) and seaweed extract to control overly oily skin, and has a fresh, minty fragrance.
It’s perfect if you don’t have a powder to hand.

It contains a blend of antioxidants and vitamins to give skin an instant pick-me-up.
