I live in a tropical country named Indonesia. Just like any other tropical countries out there Indonesia is very humid and hot throughout the year and even though I have been living here since I was born, my skin still acts up very bad with the weather sometimes. Every time the weather is too hot and humid I will suffer from redness, oily skin and bad break out. Because of this, I need something that is not only can soothe my skin but also suitable for my sensitive skin. I’ve read on the internet about Avene and how good their products are for a sensitive skin like mine. So, I decided to try The Avene Thermal Spring Water because there are a lot of people out there rave about this product with their ability to soothe and softening skin, which I need every time the weather turns to be so hot. And I was so lucky because when I bought it, it was on sale in Watsons (discount is a girl best friend).
This product comes in 50 ml, 150 ml and 300 ml bottle. I personally prefer the 50 ml one because it’s very travel friendly. The bottle itself just like any other spray product that comes in a can bottle like, but what I love about it is how simple and clean it looks in white color. Most of the words that written on the bottle are in France so I don’t really know what is in the ingredients of this face mist particularly. But I did a little bit of research on the internet and it is said that Avene Thermal Spring Water consist of low mineral composition 206 mg/l, calcium/magnesium bicarbonate profile (ratio Ca/Mg = 2), rich in silica: 10.6 mg/l, very rich in trace elements and neutral pH: 7,5. These components are particularly recommended for the most sensitive skin.
What I love about this product is its ability to soothe my skin and how multipurpose it is. Indonesia is a very hot country and every time I have an outdoor activity (mostly swimming) my face is red like a tomato and after that usually one or two big pimples will show up. I actually didn’t had a high expectation over this product before but when I got home after swimming and saw my face in the mirror, my skin looked normal not red at all and didn’t feels sting or burnt just like what I usually had after swimming, which is very amazing. The other thing I love about Avene Thermal Water Spring is it also very moisturizing. Right now I’m using a medical prescribed to cure my acne and it dries my skin up so bad. So, lately I’m spraying my face with Avene Thermal Water before I start using my prescribed face cream or every time I feel my face very dry. Now I can see my dry patches are less. Sometimes I also use it as a setting spray after I applied my makeup or just to freshen up my look after a long tiring day. To sum up, I really love this product and if you go to Watson and find this thing, just don’t have any second thought and grab it fast (especially if they are on sale), because it so damn worth it!
