Avene Thermal Spring Water Spray Review

avene thermal spring water review

Recently, my skin has been SO agry. I'm talking spots, tiny little dry patches and redness everywhere. Something had to be done about this. Avene's Thermal Water to the rescue! It was recommended to me by the lovely Molly from Lyon Notes (thanks, hun) and it has since become a very important part in my skincare routine.

At first I though "Come on, this is probably just tap water that shall cost me £6.50", but after all the positive reviews and the recomendation I decided to give it a go. As with most hyped up products, it was totally worth it. Let's get review this thing up, shall we.

Price & size: The price seems pretty reasonable to me, now that I've tested out the product. You get a 150ml bottle for £6.50 and if you get it on discount it's even better. It lasts forever as you only lightly mist your face/legs and it dispenses such a fine mist that I think it would last me a lifetime. Besides, there are 3 sizes - a tiny-winy 50ml one, the 150ml one which you can see up there and a HUGE and I mean huge 300 ml one. So, if you'd just like to try it out I'd recommend getting the smallest one.

Application & quality: "Avene Thermal Spring Water contains a unique active ingredient, renowned by dermatologists for its soothing properties. This facial spray is great in hot weather or for soothing irritated skin or sunburn", as promised by Avene. And it is all true (I haven't had the chance to test it out in hot weather yet, as it's freezing now, sorry). My skin has been horrendous the past few weeks. I had severe redness on my cheeks and I noticed great improvement with the first few uses. Which is like, incredible. My skin feels hydrated, the redness has almost disappeared and is not as visible now. Oh, ad my pores are less visible (I might be imagining this one, don't know).
I also tested it out after shaving my legs and I must say - Holy Grail material right there. My legs have that silky smooth vibe going on, no red bumps. no dry patches. It's all smoth, I tell ya.

Overall verdict: This is NOT tap water, contrary to what I seemed to believe. It's a great product if you have sensitive skin. Anlo it's supposed to help treatment if you havepsoriasis, dermatitis or eczema, which is great! I really couldn't say enough about this product - if you have sensitive skin, problems with shaving, redness etc. it's a must-have. Or, you know, if you'd just like to freshen up.

Have you tried this handy little product? What do you think?

The Blogger Love Tag

blogger love tag

It's been a while since my last post. Yes, I know - I've been a crappy blogger. And I decided to ease my way back to blogging with an awesome tag post, created by Make Up Savvy. Make sure to check the original post out, as it is really entertaining.

Let's get crackin' with the questions:

What was the first blog you came across?
The first blog I came across was Zoella. A bit stereotypical, but she is gorgeous, and at the time inspired me to start my own blog. So a big thanks to her and her fabulous blog.
Favourite blog reads
Now this is a tough one. I must say I read a lo-o-ot of blogs, but the ones that really stand out and that are my absolute faves at the moment are Thunderlove, secondhandspring, Mascara and Maltesers, RosyChicc and From Roses 

Best blogging friend
Without doubt that would be Molly from Lyon Notes. That lovely lady has made me laugh so hard, she's a Winchester nerd like me and has a gourgeous beauty blog which you definitely MUST read. Her gorgeous phorography and creative posts made me tweet her and I am so, so glad that I did, cause she is one of the lovelies people you'll ever meet. 

Name a blog that enables your purchases 
Essie Button. I watch her videos, I read her blog and then my bank account suffers from it. I seriously have a love-hate relationship with her blog, I love it for the great reccommendations and I hate it for making me buy (sometimes) expencive stuff.

5 blogs everyone should be reading

Your favourite way to read blogs 
I prefer GFC to Bloglovin', but recently I think I've been somewhat converted. Bloglovin' is a great way to go through you favourite blogs and never ever miss a post, but at some point I get overwhelmed with the quantity of posts. That's when I go back to GFC.

Favourite blog design/look
I don't have a particular favourite, just anything minimalisticyet classy that lets your personality shine through. I love Megs form Wonderful You's design, it's absolutely gorgeous, vintage-looking and in my opinion sums up what a great blog should look like.

What is your favourite thing about blogging?
That's an easy one. It would have to be the community and the satisfacion I get from writing up a good post and seeing that people actually enjoy it. And also, all the lovely people I meet - they would have to be my favourite part, haha.

Name a blogger you would most like to see write a book in the future
Suuuch a difficult one! I can't really decide, so I guess I'd have to say either Estee or Louise from Sprinkle of Glitter. They are both SO funny and well-spoken, I love Estee's goofy stories, so I imagine she'd write a pretty decent book.

Hope you've enjoyed this post, feel free to do this tag yourself, as it is an awesome one. Link me up if you do :)
