Avene Thermal Spring Water Mist
Advantages: It works, fresh skin
Avene Thermal Spring Water Mist is essentially a pressurised can of water that is to be sprayed on skin to provide hydration and refreshment. It claims to be suitable for sensitive, hypersensitive, allergic and irritated skin. Avene say this product can be used for a range of uses from setting make up, soothing sunburn, easing nappy rash, calming acne and razor burn or for cooling down after sporting activities.
Now when I first saw this in my local boots I thought it would be a load of rubbish after all it is only water!! But it works, it really does. I have dry and dehydrated skin, which is quite sensitive and I think this can is a miracle. It has drastically improved the quality of my skin and I cannot now imagine not using it.
So why does it work better than normal water?? Well Avene say that it is because it is thermal water. they explain that the water starts as rain then filters through the Cévennes Mountains absorbing precious minerals and trace elements for 40 years until it reaches the mouth of the Sainte-Odile spring. Its composition makes thermal water ideally suited for the care and management of sensitive skin. There have been many tests and studies conducted to support the claims made on this water. (This information was found on their website).
Lets break it down a little more..........
Price: The cans come in different sizes 50ml costs £3.15 and 150ml costs £6.50 from boots, so the larger can is much better value. Now if you think £6.50 for water??? then yes it seems expensive, but when you see what this can do then it is very reasonable priced as it last for quite a while.
Packaging: The can is very plain and basic, it has simple orange and black writing and detail in an elegant font. There is a lot of information on the can. When you buy the can there is a plastic covering around the can with a perforation strip to open it up. this does seem like a bit of a waste or plastic but I think it is there to ensure the can hasn't been sprayed by others in the store. I personally like the packaging, I think its elegant and simplistic.
Application: This is really easy to use. The can should be held a few centimetres away from the face and sprayed across the skin. It comes out in a really fine mist and leaves the skin damp. it is suggested that you leave it for a few moments then pat dry. I do this with cotton wool pads. There is no smell to the water at all.
Performance: As I said above I really do believe that this works. I've incorporated it into my cleansing routine. I apply it after my cleanser and before my moisturiser then again after I've applied my make up (although I spray from further away for this). I find my skin is better, i get less blemishes and my make up stays on better.
I really recommend giving this a try, I did a bit of research and Avene really know what they are talking about. if you go to their website Avene.co.uk and register they will send out some complimentary samples for you to try.
Summary: This is a fantastic product.
