Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water

I'm sure that I'm not alone when I say that I often go into Boots and look at the same products every time, only to never purchase them? I'm pretty bad at doing this, but this time was different and I cam out feeling pretty pleased with myself. This particular purchase was a little can of wonder from Avene, in the form of their Eau Thermale Spring Water. I've seen this quite a few times mentioned by the lovely Louise from Sprinkleofglitter  and was always pretty intrigued, but now I'm glad I finally purchased it.

At first, I just couldn't get my head around why anyone would by water in a can. Surely it couldn't have been that great? In reality, it is so much more than that. Sure, it is just water, but the way it works is actually quite incredible. Designed to give instant relief whenever the skin feels tight or uncomfortable, this water spray gives a gentle soothing sensation that we sometimes crave. It soothes sunburn, acne, nappy rash, allergic reactions, razor burn, to set or remove makeup, and cool in the heat. I think you'll agree that it really is a multi use product, although I do disagree that it sets makeup. How can a spray of water set makeup?! I also love the way that it sprays, which I know sounds weird but it sprays a gentle mist that isn't too much a shock when you spray it on your face. 

My favourite way to use this has been to spray it lightly on my face just before I apply my night cream. I spray it and then leave it for 30 seconds, then gently pat to dry. It just hydrates my skin a little bit more which I desperately need. Another way that I've been favouring this is to use after work. In my job, I stand for 8 hours on a hard tiled floor which can get pretty uncomfortable after a while. When I get home, a quick spray of this on my legs and feet and they are instantly sooth and no longer ache. 

For me, this has become a bit of a must have item and I wouldn't be without it now! You can purchase it from Boots for £3.20 for 50ml, 150ml for £6.50 and 300ml for £10.00. Have you tried any Avene products?


  1. I've been flickering between whether to get this or not for a while, i think you've persuaded me now! Great post :)
