Product Review: Avene Thermal Spring Water

I've been using Avene Thermal Spring Water for about 3-4 months before I ran out. It's refreshing during summer months, and perfect to use on cold/dry winter days. The product claims to soothe, soften, and restore skin's natural balance: "Clinically proven by over 300 studies to calm, soothe and soften the skin.  Used since 1743 in the Hydrotherapy Center to treat serious dermatological conditions such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema." The website even offers an option to view clinical data, and offers a list of uses:

Dermatological care: Post surgery, Post procedure, Redness-prone skin / inflammation, Keratosis-prone, scaly skin Eczema / atopic dermatitis, Allergic reactions / sensitive skin / irritation,  Burning / stinging / itching / tingling Daily care: After cleansing, After shaving/after waxing,  After exercise,  During travel,  Sunburn, burns, Diaper rash,  To set makeup

One of the best uses for the Avene thermal water is definitely after exercise. I spray it a few times on my skin, and wait 2-3 minutes to air dry. It then helps my skin feel much more hydrated and fresh.

Here is a list of benefits from Avene official website:
  • Calms, soothes and softens
  • Rich in silicate and trace elements
  • Low salt mineral content does not dry out the skin
  • pH 7.5 – perfect balance of anions and cations
  • Bottled directly from the source – bacteriologically pure
  • Preservative-free
  • Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
And while it may feel like simply water in a can, the tap water we use to wash our face is not all that great for us. The running water often contains skin drying chemicals and chlorine. Many of us get that tight feeling after washing our faces with regular water. Avene helps to relieve that drying effect of regular water. It's a great toner too.

  • Perfect for refreshing my face during the day
  • Makes powder foundation look less powdery
  • Great for toning before makeup application
  • Gentle, without perfume
  • Works well for sensitive and oily skin
  • Hydrating
  • Easy to use
  • High ratings on : 4.2/5
  • Would be better if it cost less
From my experience, Avene Thermal Spring Water spray definitely works, and I will repurchase it again and again. Perhaps, I will let my boyfriend try it out next as he suffers from severe eczema. 

Value: 4.5/5
Quality: 4.5/5
Performance: 5/5
Packaging: 4/5
Price: $$

Overall: 4.5/5 

Would I use it again? YES!
