A couple months ago, I was picking up a few things from Walgreens when I happened to see this on one of the shelves and it immediately brought me back to when I was a kid. My mother ALWAYS had Evian's Mineral Water cans stocked up in our fridge and in her purse, and we never went anywhere without them. I remember how much I loved the feeling of that cool, refreshing mist across my face after long days of playing in the hot Florida heat. Sure, it wasn't Evian, but whatever. It was presumably the same thing. Naturally, I HAD to buy it.
Anyhow, I am SO glad I picked this gem up! Seriously, guys. It's not 'just water,' it's like a million little angel kisses all over your face.. a trillion if you keep it in the fridge! ;) Summer in Florida is SCORCHING hot. We also naturally have really hard water, and even though I have a water softener, 'soft' water tends to feel sort of slimy and leaves my skin feeling like I have a slippery film coating it. You think it'd be moisturizing, but after washing my face with 'soft' water, my skin often felt dry, tight and itchy. Can't win. Enter La Roche Posay's Thermal Spring Water.. I've been using this religiously for the past 2 months after I wash my face and tone with ACV/Water, and it TRULY has made a difference in the overall texture and quality of my combination skin. I don't suffer from bad acne, but I do get occasional (hormonal) pimples- and before I started using this, I was dealing with an annoying month long bout of those 'under the skin' bumps, which left my face looking blotchy and ruddy. My t-zone was oily while the rest of my face was dry/undecided :| Not anymore! :) I truly fell in love with this spray the moment after my first spritz. My face felt clean, moisturized, and finally at peace. Those pesky little bumps were about 60% gone after a week and totally non-existent after two. Dry patches, gone! Blotchiness, no longer! Finally, my skin feels comfortable and balanced. Anddd, as a result, my makeup no longer clings to certain areas while slipping off others. Double Win! The results I've gotten since I began using this have given me absolute proof that all water isn't the same. I'm completely overjoyed with this product and will definitely be repurchasing!

At first I wasn't sure I'd like this mainly because I didn't know why I'd want to spray my face with water but I think it's a nice refreshing hydrating water for your skin. While I don't use it often I do like this as a first thing in the morning wake up your face kind of thing in place of cleanser strictly reserved for non-humid days. I am faithful to my cleanser, toner, moisturizer routine morning and night so on occasion I've woken up, sprayed this all over my face, gently patted dry and got on with my day. I suppose you could get the same effect from dousing your face with water from the tap but I admit to liking the pampered feel of thermal water spray, lol!

Not sure I'd use this as a setting spray for makeup as I have somewhat oily skin and prefer to achieve a matte look that this would counteract. But... I have used this throughout the day when at home, indoors with dry heat in the winter months and it is super nourishing for the skin. When I was considering this purchase it was a toss up between Avene and LRP but I remember reading that LRP dispensed much nicer from the can than Avene so that and the less expensive price ($14 Cdn) swayed me to LRP. I am a big fan of LRP Effaclar products too. Between that line and Yves Rocher Sebo Vegetal products they cleared up my skin and gave me gorgeous smooth skin that I was previously envious of on others.

For my limited use the can will last a long time but when I run out I will definitely purchase again.

I think this product compliments other La Roche Posay skincare products beautifully. For example: After using Hydraphase Intense Mask, I spray this liberally before I massage the residue in; After putting a thick layer of Cicaplast B5 on my skin, I spray this liberally before patting it "into" my skin; After taking my makeup off with Toleraine dermo-cleanser, I spray this liberally before putting on moisturizer, etc. It "sets" makeup, "doubles" as a toner (I don't usually use toners. The fewer products, the better.), and if you use any product with hyaluronic acid, adding water on the surface of your skin can be extremely beneficial, because the chemical works by "grabbing", or "trapping" waters in the environment to add moisture into your facial skin. On the days when your skin is too damaged for you to wash it normally, you can simply spray a huge amount of it on your face, then very softly tissue it off.

It can be expensive if 1.You don't live in France where it's made, and where there simply are too many different brands of thermal spring water to compete with it (so the price cannot be too high), or 2. You get the small 50ml bottle one (which is often free in a set), actually, even the 150ml one is pretty steep.

I bought a 300ml one not long ago, and I can see myself buying another big can when this one is done. Not easy to carry around though, when you get a huge can to save on money.

Okay, I know this is technically *just* water but I love it. I would buy 900 bottles of this if I could. My skin is so sensitive that this is practically the only thing I can use sometimes. The water is just so pure, moisturizing, and refreshing. (Unlike my tap water...) I love to spray this on after cleansing, after moisturizer, before makeup, after makeup, anytime! I would recommend this to anyone but don't be disappointed that it's just water...it's much more than that to ultra sensitive skinned people like myself that react to even tap water.

This is very soothing and refreshing for my oily, but sensitive skin. I use it sometimes in the morning if I don't feel like washing my face, on days when it is stifling hot, or when I need to set my makeup. I have also taken it to the beach. It doesn't break me out and it soothes the redness I have on my cheeks. I got mine from Ulta. I think it is about 20 bucks which can be pricey since I go through a can pretty quickly in a month. I am already a fan of many of the products from this line. They seem to work out very well for my skin. Just wish they were better on my wallet. This dispenses a fine mist that can also be used on the body. I spray on my face and allow it to air-dry or just pat it with a tissue.

I received a small can in a combo pack awhile back and just recently started using it in place of a toner. I find it alleviates the tightness after cleansing and is very refreshing for my tired, old skin! :)

The spray isn't as uniform as it was in the beginning after using it for a while. It's quite refreshing. As for any skin benefits, it does calm down the redness. That might be a placebo effect though

Average product. I feel like it aggravates my sensitive skin (which has been acne prone lately). It doesn't feel fresh and has a mild chemical scent to it. It hasn't exactly broken me out (or atkeast I'm not sure if it was the culprit) but I just don't like the feeling of this spray. I use it sometimes to hydrate my skin after applying my CC cream but honestly 100% pure rosewater works a million times better than this. I won't be repurchasing.

I started using toners about a year ago due to Dr. Oz stressing the importance of using them. I've been trying La Roche Thermal Spring Water for about a month. It moisturizes very well and I've noticed that my skin isn't as red when I use it. Although I am a dark tan complexion I never fail to get red and this does it for me. I would recommend it.
