Who would have guessed that water, one of the most basic ingredients in the beauty world, could also be the most exclusive? Of course, this so-called water is not purely H2O like you could draw from your kitchen tap. If that were the case, everyone would simply fill a spritz bottle at home. The secret of exclusive beauty waters is infused minerals and micellar cleansers that will give your daily spritz extra magic powers against the grime, grit, and sweat that builds up all over your face. Sophisticated as these products may seem, there’s a benefit to their exclusivity. Any of them will give you a curing blend of pure watery goodness and healing substances you won’t find anywhere else. Grab one and start enjoying elevated water today.

When your face is all set, water can be your finishing touch. Give your makeup a radiant shimmer with one or two spritzes of this simple product to keep the colors vibrant. It may seem a mere trifle, but you’ll be surprised what a difference one spray of water can make.
Luxurious water will do amazing things for your face. Spend the extra bucks for an elevated water spray. Water may be a luxury on its own, but luxurious water is even more beneficial to your skin.
