These reviews are a long time coming but i really feel that with skin care you've got to thoroughly test a product out. A week or two isn't quite enough as skin(well mine any way!) is always changing. Avene have a very large choice of skin care products and whilst mine are aimed at dry/dehydrated skin you'll be able to find something targeted at your skin whether you are sensitive, combination, normal or oily.
I'll have reviews of the cleanser and moisturiser up next but for now, here's what i thought of the Thermal Water Spray.
Avene Thermal Water Spray*
This product most interested me from their range as i'd never really heard of anything like this before. I have since found that Avene aren't the only brand that do thermal water sprays though. This can be used any where on the body and is a real multi tasking product. It's specifically targeted at sensitive, hypersensitive, allergic and irritated skin. You just spray it on to the skin and it comes out as a very light mist. It can be used for the following: "sunburn, after anti-acne treatments, nappy rash, razor burn or hair removal" as well as after cleansing, setting make up and as a general refreshing spray.
What did i think?
I loved this product and without a doubt will no longer be with out it. My skin(especially my legs!) gets quite sensitive and dry, especially after shaving and i find some products just irritate it more but with this it takes away the redness and generally soothes. It's really hydrating and used after cleansing it works well. It gives that extra hydration that dehydrated skin craves.
As a make up setting/refreshing spray it works really well and gets rid of any cakeyness from foundation and makes it look nice and just applied. The spray comes out as a fine mist and the application is controllable so there's no worry of too much coming out and drenching you. They do a smaller version of this which would be better for travelling. It's one of those products that would be great for just chucking in your bag - especially in the summer.
We've had a couple of hot days here in England this week and unfortunately, being as pale as i am i got sunburnt. I was initially just going to use after sun lotion but opted for this instead. Not having to actually rub a lotion on the sunburn has been good and the actual spray really cools and again, it's been really soothing.
