Difference between Come to one’s senses and Regain one’s senses

come to one’s senses—

1. regain consciousness; stop feeling faint:

  • It wasn’t until long afterwards that she began to come to her senses.

2. start behaving sensibly:

  • When will she come to her senses and see that he is a totally unsuitable man to marry?

regain one’s senses— = come to one’s senses 1:

  • She felt faint in the hot room, but going out into the fresh air she quickly regained her senses.
