It’s hard to choose one favourite Avène product, especially since it was their Xeracalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Balm that was one of my winter skin soothers. However, if I had to go to a desert island with just five products, one of them would likely be the Thermale Spring Water Spray (R159.95).
According to the French brand, this product:
- Soothes redness associated with inflammation
- Calms itching sensations
- Is rich in silicate and trace elements
- Is preservative-free
- Is hypoallergenic
What I know for sure is that this spray is not only refreshing, but is great to calm and soothe my skin when it’s irritated like after exercise. I’ve also used it after my last few microneedling sessions, and it’s soothed my face incredibly.
Apparently it’s also great for sunburn, setting makeup, easing frizzy hair, and soothing skin after hair removal or shaving. The spray can also be used as part of your cleansing routine – spray some onto your skin after cleansing, wait for about 20 seconds, and pat dry with cotton wool.
