It does calm a little when my skin is irritated. But I also find it dried my face. Maybe it's because of the high PH value? So I may alter this spray with some other "real" toners. Anyway, it's a keeper when my skin is out of order.
I purchased this for my long trip from TO to China. Worked great for me especially on the plane. My 16hr flight total dried out my skin and this thermal spray kept my skin supple, fresh and soft. Definitely would buy again especially in the summer and while travelling.
Now I know that I shall not buy more "thermal water spray"! Iīve tried Evian Spray, and now this Avene Spray. And they didnīt moist my skin, just dried out my skin. donīt waste your money on those water spray.
I like Avene water better than Vichy.Would buy it again,of course.
I have been using this product alongside the Tolorence Extreme cleanser and moisturiser, when I developed a strong sensitivity to some other skin care I was trying. My face felt burnt, flushed and very sensitive. Initially I tried some other bland creams to soothe, but only noticed a difference when I started to use this system. The spray feels very soothing and moisturising, and after about 10 days, much less sensitive. I will probably still continue to use the spray when I finish the 21 day (cleanser and moisturiser )course as it feels very refreshing and therapeutic compared to my normal hard tap water.
My mom forced me to buy this (it cost about 10 euros) when on the last week of make up school I suddenly had wierd red bumps on my neck and shoulders.
Well I used it and I don't know if it helped it go away but anyway it eased the itching and the "hot" feeling.
I use the rest of the bottle as a toner and I think it's a bit softer than the Vittel spray I usually use (different minerals I guess).
I was recommended this by a friend who has very sensitive skin like mine. Love the fine mist and found that this spray is not drying at all. Have tried Evian spray mist and Vichy but both did not really hydrate my skin. This product refreshed my skin and keeps it hydrated. I was amazed and now use it in the office and also during golf. It's a great product.
I find this water quite good at calming my dehydrated skin, but i think other cheaper brands like Evian does a similar great job. In fact, splashing water on my face does the same job.
I used several bottles of this, without any change in my skin. It is only mildly soothing, nothing special. It is no good as a toner. I now only use Avene's Cleasing lotion for intolerant skin, which is 97% avene water and find it very good for make up removal, I no longer need the thermal bottle.
this "thermal spring water" sounds like a bunch of hype, but everytime i get red irritated itchy bumps on my face, i cleanse then spray this water on my face and in less than 10 minutes the bumps are less apparent and less itchy. this product definately calms down irritation. would definately rebuy. also after squeezing a pimple i sprayed on this water and i noticed the scarring is just slightly less than it normally would be. update: i've been using la roche posay's thermal spray water & like the avene way better b/c you see faster results w/ the avene, the LRP doesn't seem to do much.
