    Spenny for water, but you'll just keep finding uses!

    have both the largest and the smallest bottles of this spray - one lives with my daily skincare products, and the other in my bag for travelling.

    The great thing about this spray is that it has so, so many uses. And once you have it, you keep finding more!

    Before I tout all the ways I love and use it for skincare, it's worth remembering that this is essentially water in a can. I wouldn't recommend drinking it, but if you happen to camp, or go to festivals, or on long trips, having a mini in your bag is just a really, really good idea, and even the littlest one should last a weekend of heavy use. Think hygiene, sunburn, overheating and bug bites.

    If you don't intend to use it for skincare, and you don't care about the 'mineral' aspect, some of the rest of this review might not be too relevant to you, BUT one thing every user should know is that after you've sprayed it on, you should wait a few moments and then
    PAT OR TAP THE EXCESS WATER IN /OFF.
    This is because allowing the excess water spray to sit on your face for too long, will mean that it can start to evaporate off your skin, and this will take some of your important skin moisture and goodies with it.
    On the bottle it says to wait a few minutes before removing the excess water, but it's going to depend on where you're using it, in terms of whether it's windy, sunny, has air-con etc. Use your own sense of judgement on this, and don't spray too much on at one time, as it's more to evaporate off. Use a little, pat it in, then repeat if necessary :)

    Now, on to beauty and skincare!
    ... My personal favourite way to use this spray is after cleansing and toning, and before applying hyaluronic acid or skin creams. Lightly spray all over your face, wait a few moments, then PAT OR TAP IN / OFF.
    After the water spray has been absorbed and any excess removed, I apply a hyaluronic acid to my face - using the spray first just gives the skin some extra water for that HA to hold on to. Similarly, using a water spray in the same way, but before applying a moisturiser in the morning or evening, just means there's a little more moisture for your creams to 'lock in'.

    I use Avene water spray for a variety of other stuff too - it's just a very handy thing to have around, especially if you're 'into' skin care and makeup, and it can help to avoid a lot of the 'getting up and going to a sink/basin' that can so slow down a morning or evening routine. For example...
    - Use with cotton wool to wipe makeup residue from brush handles, tweezers, mirrors, small brushes, hands etc (great when you're applying a lot of skin creams and face makeup and want to wipe down your hands between steps)
    - Spray onto cotton wool or a face cloth to remove masks, cleanser residue, oil based cleaners and so forth
    - Spray on to brushes if you're using an eye shadow 'wet' for richer colour
    - Use to calm skin if you've used a product it doesn't like
    - As a quick fix if you've overdone the powder and your face is looking 'cakey'
    - On cotton buds to tidy up lipstick

    And of course, it's cooling and refreshing. I have quite sensitive skin, so it's great if I'm a little red or puffy. It's absolutely NOT IRRITATING.

    I have also heard of people using water sprays to set their makeup. I haven't tried this - I use a setting spray - but I can confirm that, other than non-waterproof mascara, a spritz of this over makeup won't cause the makeup to slip or budge. Just make sure you're holding the can at arms length, so you don't get too much water in one place, which can messy things up a little!

    Finally... 'Minerals and Brands'
    There's a lot touted about the benefits of the minerals in these sorts of mineral water sprays, but I'm not entirely convinced that they do much of anything when you apply the water topically (to your skin), so that's not my motivation in buying them. If that does happen to be what's drawing you to the product though, it's worth looking at the different mineral contents of waters online - the water La Roche Posay one uses contains much higher mineral levels than this Avene one, and I think basically tops the list for mineral content among the most readily available thermal waters, but it's always worth checking what's selling in your country. That said, the La Roche spray is also quite a bit more expensive, so for my purposes, the cheaper Avene spray is perfect

    I'm on my fourth bottle and counting

    This mist makes my face feel soft and fresh. I've incorporated this into my skincare routine. I spritz some to my face after I put on my toner.
    I've consumed several bottles of this already. 🤣

    What to love: Everything!!!
    What not to love: I finish it so fast. 😭

    Will always buy

    It’s a great refresher. It hydrates skin. Great to use before moisturizer as well as after. It will give a boost of hydration. I always use it at night after my skin care and my face feels amazing. Great for summer heat as well

    Refreshing

    This is a refreshing fast mist made of spring water. It’s super gentle because of being water. I’ve repurchased this product because I love the quality and how it refreshes me so much with its fine mist when my face is hot.

    Unexpected fan

    I hate to say it, but I fell in love with this product. At first, I was completely baffled by this product and it's uses. Having a bottle on hand, I found this product worked wonders during the hotter days. When my skin needs a refreshing mist, this product comes in handy. I do have very dry skin and it just helps. It may sound silly, it also helps cool your skin off after it has become irritated by other factors. I like to use facial hair bleaching cream and using this product after helps keep my skin nice and happy.

    Perfect for sensitive skin

    I have been using it since last year when my skin broke out and nothing would help. That’s when I read the reviews for this line and started with this spring water and that totally changes the look of my skin. The acne cleared in a few months and now my skin has this glow that makes it look so healthy. One bottle lasts me months so great value as well

    Use It everyday

    I enjoy using the Avene Thermal Spring Water and I use it every day. I use Avene Thermal Spring Water several ways as a toner, to keep my skin fresh & cool in the summer, to keep my skin hydrated in the winter and most importantly to ease the redness when my skin is irritated and itchy. The Avene Thermal Spring Water works great for my sensitive skin and I will keep buying it

    Refreshing Facial Spray

    Such a refreshing and soothing product. Would recommend this to indiviluals with sensitive skin. I have extremely sensitive skin so I use this product after any type of acne treatment or any time I use a face mask. Although it is more on the expensive side if you have a need for it it is definitely worth it.
