Hey, everyone! Today, I am pleased to announce the winners of the 2021 Cert Clean Beauty Awards!There were more than 450 best-selling clean beauty products nominated this year that were judged by a panel of 146 international beauty specialists. A winner was chosen in each of the 24 different categories. I had the privilege of testing the toner/mist category – sadly, none of the brands I tested won (though they were still winners in my book see below!).

You can read my post on the 2021 selections I tested here.

Honorable Mentions

Because I feel like they were winners, I’m going to list the top 3 toners/mists that I tested. All of the products I tried out were impressive, but these were the ones that I loved the most!


  1. AKITA Rose Water – Only one star ingredient makes up this beauty – Rosa Damascena Flower Water. What makes this product so special is that the rose oil is left intact in the rose water, which means that all of the benefits that reside in the oil are maintained (you can read about the benefits here). I can’t say enough about this, except that this was my #1 fave of the bunch!
  2. AEOS Refreshing Hydrating Mist – This contains organic and biodynamic botanicals and crystal essences to uplift and revitalize and restore balance to the skin. As with the Elva’s, I wasn’t crazy about the scent, but it really did energize my mood and hydrate my skin. I think this was definitely at the top of my favorites list! Star ingredients – lemon balm and rose hydrosols, amethyst crystals (my birthstone ;-))
  3. Dr. Orga AloeBlue Barrier Toner – A scent-free, moisturizing toner, I have been using this every night after cleansing to get any traces of makeup my cleanser may have missed. It’s very soothing and calming and extremely hydrating. Star ingredients – ceramide NP, aloe, blue-green algae.


Until next time,
