AVENE SKINCARE RANGE REVIEW
Assalamualaikum and Olla everyone!
Do you have a sensitive skin? Even if you dont, I have a brand to introduce to you today. It is so gentle that I have been using it the past 3 weeks and planning to use it during my confinement too. During pregnancy and after giving birth, it is no secret that hormone goes haywire and during my previous pregnancy I had lots of breakout. Which is why I tend to use gentle product for my skincare as it reduce the change of breakout. During my pregnancy this round, I am happy that skin is the least of my concern as I do know face any break out even when my hormone is going to for a roller coaster ride haha..
What makes Eau Thermale Avène range so special is because all their product contain Avène Thermal Spring Water. Avène thermal water comes from a spring with deep origins resulting from very old rainfall. Do you know that it has remained infiltrated in the ground for more than forty or fifty years? The water migrates very slowly from the depths to the surface within a geological layer of dolomite and dolomitic limestone, absorbing minerals as it moves along ascending pathways. The original point of discharge of Avène Thermal Spring Water is the Ste Odile spring. The traditional spring, declared to be of public interest in 1874, continues to impress with its abundance and the constant flow of 70,000 litres per hour. This thermal water is classified as having a low mineral content and by the presence of both calcium bicarbonate and magnesium. Its main characteristics include a significant amount silicates, a low sodium, a calcium / magnesium ratio of 2 (expressed in mg / l minerals) and a wide variety of different trace elements.
Today the benefits of treatment with Eau Thermale Avène Spring Water have been clearly demonstrated in babies, children, adults and seniors suffering from chronic and disabling conditions such as atopic dermatitis and eczema, psoriasis, ichthyosis, as well as gingivitis and glossitis. It can also be used in post-cancer or post-radiotherapy and burn care. Basically it is very good for your skin and the ability to not only gives you the best skin condition but also to heal severe skin issues.
Like seriously, it is so good that they even have a Hydrotherapy Center all the way in France. It would be my dream comes true if I ever get to visit the center and experience the treatment. I learned all about the center and insight about the brand during the event that I went last month.
I have such a great time and also learn so much information at the event. This is our group picture with Trisha Kuck and also Eau Thermale Avène Team.
Step 1: Cleanse: Eau Thermale Avène Gentle Cleansing Foam
Let’s talk about the product shall we? The first step is cleanser. The one I am holding here is the Eau Thermale Avène Gentle Cleansing foam. I personally like the packaging very much. Just push the diffuser and you will have a foamy cleanser. I think it also very hygienic to diffuse product as lesser possibility of contamination. This product is available in retail size of 150ml; I have received the 50ml size which I like the size of 50ml bottle as it is travel friendly. Since I will be staying in confinement center, it is just nice. I also like the smell of the cleanser as it is not over powering with a little hint of clinical smell.
Step 2: Soothe: Eau Thermale Avène Thermal Spring Water
Next we have this Eau Thermale Avène Thermal Spring Water which is the key product. The exact water that can be found from the source at the valley in France is the one bottled here. It is so natural that it actually have no expire date. In my opinion, this product is the most versatile out of the rest of the range. It can be used as face mist, to treat razor burn and you may also use it after putting on your make up to make it last longer. I dont mind having endless supply of Avene Themal Spring Water as it is so gentle it can even be used on kids. The soothing properties are just awesome. I was told that if your child suffers eczema, you may also try out this thermal water and Eau Thermale Avène skincare range as it helps to improve the condition significantly.
Step 3: Tone : Eau Thermale Avène Gentle Toner
Moving on, we have this gentle toner. It is hypoallergenic and also non-comedogenic so it is safe to be used for dry to very sensitive skin. If it is safe to be used to sensitive skin then it is totally good to go for normal skin as well. The smell of the toner is almost identical to the cleanser. I have been using this toner day and night and cant find anything to complain about it.
Step 4: Moisture: Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Optimale Light Hydrating Cream 40ml
The next product is this Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Optimate Light Hydrating Cream which is the moisturizer. This moisturizer is oil free so it does not give me any break out. Yeay for that! The cream is also very light that it absorb fast into my skin making my skincare step more efficient.
Step 5: Protect : Eau Thermale Avène Day Protector tinted 40ml
The last product that I have been using is this Day Protector Tinted. It is actually a tinted sunscreen. I have to admit long time ago, I only wear sun screen if I go to the beach. Now that I have been a beauty blogger for many years, I learned that you need to wear sun screen everyday. Expecially living in a super sunny climate like here in Malaysia. Sun screen is very important as it helps to protect your skin from the harsh uv-ray. Do you know that sun screen helps to prevent facial brown spots and skin discolorations. It also helps to reduce the appearance of facial red veins and blotchiness. Moreover, it slows down the development of wrinkled, premature aging skin. By wearing a sun screen you will give your skin the protection it need and this will help you to enjoy youthful skin for longer period.
I am sharing with you my before after face without any single make up. I personally think that my skin become more radiant and appear to be healthier after using it for 3 weeks. Well, dont just take my word for it, go out and try them on your own. You can visit your nearest drugstore to check out the rest of Eau Thermale Avène products.
We are at the end of this post, I hope it somehow beneficial for you if you are looking for a safe, clinical standard skincare. Thank you for your time reading my humble opinion. Take care and till next blogpost!
