This must have some mineral in it that my skin does not like because everywhere I sprayed it (face, neck), I would develop bumps. It happened twice. My skin is usually clear. My skin loves the water in Paris, but not this. The product feels very refreshing, and I like the concept, but this particular one just did not work for me. On a happier note, my plants seem to be enjoying it.

I am shocked to report that I actually love La Roche Posay's Thermal Spring Water more than the Avene! Avene was my introduction into the world of "second toners" and now I can't be without them in my morning and nighttime skin routines. I was told that Avene is the best of the best, but after picking up a large-sized can of the LRP thermal water I genuinely feel that I cannot go back to the Avene thermal water. The spray nozzle of the LRP is so much better, and it feels incredible on the skin, it absorbs very quickly and it tones down any redness in my skin. I am simply addicted to this product, I just wish thermal waters were less expensive, I was lucky enough to get this for $10 on sale, but I believe it is regularly $20!

LRP's Thermal Spring Water has been nothing but excellent to my skin. I have sensitive skin that gets red even at the slightest touch or scratch. Blotchy skin,dehydration,and mild acne are what I am dealing with atm. So when I was at CVS I was like 12$ for water why not it's cheaper than the Evian that I have. For me personally I like the LRP the best because I think this really works the best on my skin. The selenium I think is key because it helps burns for example so for my face I think it is doing wonders. It soothes and cools my skin after I do my night time facial ritual I spray with the TSW at the end. Whenever my skin is really dry I spray this first add some moisturizer and bam my skin is soft and hydrated again. It also isn't red and my spots look calmer.
I know most people think this stuff might be pointless but if you have sensitive skin this stuff is amazing! I find this works better than Evian imo and I like what this is doing for my skin. It's softer,more even toned,hydrated, and happy. For me this water is awesome and I recommend this to all my sensitive skinned ladies and gents. Give it a chance I myself was pleasantly surprised. Recommended!

Well.. I don't know what to think about this product. It feels great and refreshing and all and all but IMHO it's just water. Maybe I don't have a skin that react to it like others does ? I'll update after a while if I'm missing this product inside my skin care regimen. We'll see. It's a little pricey for water but I really like the packaging and the mist.

I always wonder was was the HYPE with this product. I mean,living in Canada for 12 years, i always passed down the aisles near this product. What? If you wanted to "hydrate" your skin just drink more water, no? Never mind what I thought years ago, this is my holy molly grail from all the products! I got 5 big bottles that i got for the special summer price at 16,50$ and 4 baby ones. Yes, how to explain? My skin always felt blah, blah and just tired and blah. I got this at first, from one of my cosmeticians gfs. She told me how good it was. I said ok lets try. 2 days later, and all the bottles bought, I'm so hooked for life! And my skin feels: softer, smoother and more hydrate. Thanks LRP!!!

Let me get this straight.
If you've got no sensitive skin, chances are this effects of thermal water sprays would not be very noticeable. So yes, it is a waste of money if your skin is normal.
I switched over to LRP from Avene just to see what's so similar or different about them. I love LRP's spray nozzle; way sturdier and the mist doesn't seem to die down into a pathetic stream towards the end of the can. Helps to keep my sensitive skin alright in the hideously hot weather. However, the spray is distributed rather "wide" versus Avene's "concentrated" mist. So LRP seems to be less cooling and soothing on my skin than Avene's.
But, LRP does seem to have higher mineral content than Avene, although I've yet to see a significant difference to Avene's spray. Anywho, since I could get 3x300ml bottles of LRP for $39.90 vs Avene's 2-for-$29.90, I might stick to LRP for price reasons.

My skin is incredibly sensitive to water changes, especially when traveling - it takes me a solid week and a TON of Jurlique Calendula cream to adjust to new shower conditions without being a dry, flaky mess. This stuff is incredibly useful for short-term travel; however, I wish I could find a smaller travel-size container so I could carry it on. The LRP and Avene are pretty comparable imho, but I can find this one locally so I'll stick with LRP.
I use this before and after oil cleansing to prep/rinse. While showering in a hotel, I spritz, oil up my face, let it sink in, and then use thermal water to spritz again after I wipe away the oil with a baby washcloth. I can't really vouch for long-term effects since I don't use it at home, but it keeps the flakies away!
I suppose I could just put distilled water in a spray bottle and take it with me, but...effort. For 12USD this lasts 6+ months and I can just grab it at Ulta.

I felt a bit stupid paying over money for water, but I wanted to know what all the hype about thermal waters was about, as so many people have called them 'game-changers' in their skin care routines, and clearly this particular one works well for a lot of people judging by the reviews here.
Unfortunately I didn't see any noticeable effect on my skin. I get why thermal waters are supposed to be better, but this really did nothing. It felt nice and refreshing..that was about it. I could have got the same effect by running my bathroom sink tap - for free.
It lasted me a surprisingly long time, but there's no way I would ever pay for this, or any other thermal water, again. It's a shame because I love French skincare and thought this would work.

I admit, I was one of the non-believers when all the fuss about thermal spring water started. Who would buy water in a can? Well, after some research and then trying out a can for myself this is now a HG item in my skincare routine.
I use this at night after my nightly BHA and just before moisturizing. I mist this over my face and then I let it sit for a bit before gently dabbing the excess away with a Kleenex. Most people seem to spray this on and leave it but I've read its important to dab it off after letting it sit on your face for a few minutes or you don't get the same benefits.
I noticed results almost immediately. My skin was plumper, redness practically gone, and more resistant to breakouts. Every time I think it must be my imagination and I stop using this the very next day my break outs will be worse and I'll get red and bumpy on my forehead. The bumps and redness went away the day after I began using this again. And I've done this about five times without changing anything else in my skin routine, so I know its this product for sure.
While this product is great on the skin, its not so great on my wallet. I took off one lippie because at $13 for 5oz, its easy to use a ton of this product up in no time. I try to make it last by using the bare minimum on my face (a little hard to do when you're talking about a product that mists out of the container) and I've managed to make it last around three to four months, though I think I might have even better results if I did mist out more product. I might like to try out the Avene version of this, just because it is a better bargain and its also a French company. I'd be hesitant to try out any cheaper alternatives not from France as I'm not sure they give the same results.

Honestly...i was so excited to use this because i hate toners because they burn, sting, dry out my skin, make my skin red...or break out bad. This also got a 0 on the EWG website which really made me want to try it. Anyway. I finished the bottle. At first i really loved it. Before putting my makeup on and then refreshing my face later. But i noticed i started breaking out HoRRibLeY!! Around my jaw, cheek bones and a little on my forehead... Yes it may be hormonal breakout but i mean my face was really clearing up and now i have these hard pimples and my skin just doesn't look flawless anymore... :'( i am thinking i will give it another shot because maybe i sprayed to much? I tend to use a lot of this stuff. I will update again. Btw I am super white. Paper white russian doll white. My skin is not the best but i am hoping it is just getting the impurities out and creating a beautiful complexion later on.. Being so white also means pink blotches and red marks sooooo I am just really hoping this, along with other natural products, will help me become a flawless 21 year old :/
