Review: Avène Thermal Spring Water

I have had very little experience with Eau Thermale Avène products in general, but have always wanted to try them due to the fact that I have very irritable, sensitive skin, which is exactly what the brand specialise in. As we have had some sun recently (yay!), I thought what better time to try their famous Thermal Spring Water.


Avène Thermal Spring Water is a soothing, anti-irritating mist for sensitive and even highly intolerant skin. It provides instant relief for tight or uncomfortable skin with its' refreshing and cooling sensation and gentle ingredients. It is even formulated to minimise the risk of allergy! As my skin is very sensitive, I knew this would be the right product for me.

Although it is specifically formulated for sensitive skin, this product has a multitude of uses for everyone. The most obvious use is to calm and soothe irritated skin, but it also works brilliantly as a cooling and refreshing mist on hot days or after exercise. A quick spritz of this spray on your skin on a hot day will instantly perk you up and make you look refreshed. I have also found it to slightly reduce oiliness on my combination skin! Not only this, but any redness in my cheeks, of which I have a fair bit, is significantly reduced after a spray or two! The red bumps on my arms that many women have are taken care of pretty much altogether with this product, and it is perfect to spray on your legs after shaving or other hair removal techniques. It makes a really nice toner, with great moisturising properties, and it can be taken on holiday with you to soothe sunburn or itching and to refresh on the plane! Fed up of all these uses yet? Basically, it's safe to say it can be used for pretty much anything!


Inevitably, there have been many comparisons made to the Caudalíe Beauty Elixir (review here). I can honestly say with absolute certainty that I rate this far above the Beauty Elixir, for a few reasons. Although I enjoy the Beauty Elixir, I feel that it has far fewer uses, and works less effectively; essentially, it is a nice luxury but is not an essential by any means. Avène Thermal Water, on the other hand, has now become a firm staple in my skincare and body routine - I will now never be without a bottle of this! It is such a simple solution to many skin problems, and it is far less expensive than the Beauty Elixir. Okay, so Caudalíe's version has a few nice essential oils and comes in a pretty glass bottle, but overall Avène's has a much nicer ingredient list (Thermal Spring Water and Nitrogen) and is more effective!

There are three sizes of bottle; 50ml costs £3.15, 150ml costs £6.50, and 300ml costs £10. I am truly impressed with how inexpensive it is for a product which I now see as an essential, and it is absolutely worth every penny. I think I have found a Holy Grail product!
