What is it?!
I started using this product after receiving a sample size (50ml RRP $9.95) in the Priceline Skincare Bag. I have been curious about this brand for a while after hearing about it a lot in the Beauty Blog-o-sphear. It is a French skincare line, which in my experience is a good sign. The French just seem to have gotten it right when it comes to skincare. This brand is known for its gentle, hypo-allergenic and specific care for people with sensitive skin as well as Atopic skin. This product is probably Avene's claim to fame and the 300ml bottle retails for $22.95 (I got mine for $15 off using voucher I got in the skincare bag from Priceline!).
What's good about it?
I tried this out basically just because it was in the skincare bag and lately I've been loving facial sprays. This one came at a really good time too as I randomly had some of the worst skin I've ever had. I had a huge break-out and my skin was so irritated and red and super sensitive! This stuff worked like a dream. It is said to sooth irritated skin and was honestly exactly what my skin needed! I used this constantly for about 4 days and along with a few other things, my skin really calmed down.
But Isn't it just water?
I know that the product is actually just water, but it has been dermatologically tested numerous times to contain a different mineral composition then most spring water. It just feels really soothing and soft on the skin.
Avène Thermal Spring Water has a low mineral content, a neutral pH and a high proportion of precious trace elements including silica. It soothes and refreshes the skin while hydrating it. It works to comfort a range of everyday skin irritations including sunburn, razor burn, facial redness, itching, post-depilatory irritation, eczema and nappy rash. It's recommended to be used after surgery, after laser treatments or on skin that is irritated by prescription medications. As a daily skincare product, it is suitable for toning, whilst travelling, after the gym or just to refresh the skin in the humid summer months.
I totally agree with all of this!! The picture above shows the various ways that you can use it and I like to use it after I cleanse my face, basically as a toner. I spray it on and wait a little bit before gently patting my face with a clean towel. I think that this product would be amazing on a plane to keep you refreshed and hydrated. I also look forward to having it in the summer time to freshen up.
You can find out more about this product here. I love it and think its really clean and fresh and simple. I've also been using a few other Avene products and have absolutely fallen in love with the range! You can pick this product and take a look at the other exciting products at your local Priceline.
What do you think about this stuff? Is it just water or is there something more to it?!
