EAU THERMALE AVÈNE
Soft, hydrated skin thanks to thermal spring water.
This month I was sent some more of their products to try, skincare specific to summer and sun holidays and I was super excited to get stuck in and test them out! Summer skincare is a tricky area; products with a built in SPF are really important however it can be hard to find ones that aren’t too thick or heavy and won’t cause your skin to breakout. Avène skincare is all designed around simple, pure good skincare that is gentle and kind to your skins needs.
I am so excited to include more of this brand in my skincare routine, and to learn more about their concepts as a brand. Avène may not be the first brand that jumps to mind when you think of skincare, and this is a shame as their products are of such high quality and have visible effects on the overall appearance of your skin. If, like myself, you have sensitive, easily agitated skin, then Avène is a brand worth considering the next time you’re in the market for skincare; their spring water based formulas as so kind to skin, so gentle and instantly soothing. So, as Summer heats up you can feel assured that you skin is in good hands when you use an Avène skincare product.
I can’t stress enough how important it is for your skin that you use a day cream with an SPF in it, regardless of the season. This Avène moisturiser has the added benefit of an SPF 20 (most day creams that I have come across only have SPF15) and UV protection. It’s light and silky formula is so soothing to apply, absorbs quickly and feels so good on the skin that I am definitely going to get the original formula to use at night too.
If an SPF in your moisturiser isn’t enough, or if you want to add a bit of colour to your skin for a day at the beach/pool but don’t want to wear a full face of make-up then the Avène Hydrating Skintone Perfecter will be perfect for you. With a little more coverage than a CC cream, this pigmented moisturiser helps hydrate the skin, protects from sun damage and evens out the appearance of your skin tone. I love to mix it in with a light foundation for an added healthy glow; it keeps my skin looking and feeling fresh all day despite how tired I might be feeling.
Imagine being able to splash some of Avène’s fresh French spring water on your face on a hot summers day? Well now you can and you won’t have to travel to the south of France. Avène Thermal Spring Water is the perfect beach bag companion to keep you fresh and your skin hydrated all day. Recently here in London we have had quite the heatwave, this aerosol was so easy to throw in my bag and gave a quick refreshing mist whenever I needed it, it could even be spray on over make-up. If you’re planning a sun holiday soon I would highly recommend you pack a can of this refreshing face mist.
