What is the thermal spring water you might ask?
Avene’s thermal water is natural spring water sourced directly from Avene’s thermal springs with a neutral ph value of 7.5 and high quantities of Natural trace elements like silica. Ingredients include 100% pure Avene patented thermal spring water, and inert nitrogen gas so as to convert the liquid into fine spray or mist.
And before you think that this is just water, no you are wrong its pure goodness! And this ‘water’ is a favourite among celebrities.

My experience with this product:
I immediately started using this product once my hives started flaming up, due to the recent hot water in Cape Town, which happens more than frequently than it would in winter. The cooling effect of this product was more than amazing, I felt like carrying the product with me everywhere I went. My hives would be kept cool limiting the itchiness that comes with hives, and once the spray settled and dried the hives would also just vanish in the interim thereafter. Another way I used this product is by spraying my legs off when I had just finished shaving them, so soothing and my legs ladies would thank me, by looking super smooth and cleanly shaving the following day without any dry flaking, irritated skin. Then of course, since its summer now and I am a big fan of swimming you would often find me at the beach or in the swimming pool, and I could not keep myself from spraying my face off after stepping out of the pool or beach.
2 sprays of this product is about enough to cover my face and it’s real easy to use.
I absolutely love this metal yes metal spray tin/can. However, to me it seems to feel softer on one’s hand, I don’t know how, but it’s just pure luxury if you ask me!

Would I recommend this product?
Yes, I would recommend this product. Not only because the product itself could be used for multiple uses as previously explained, but also because it’s not expensive and its easily available and obtainable from any Clicks store. And lastly, because it just works for my sensitive skin! I really have no cons of this product as I just grew to love it so much, I can’t help by spray it onto my body each time I walk pass it ;-) It’s a real must have for summer, so go out and get yourself a can ASAP. Thank you Rubybox and Avene for allowing me this opportunity to test and review this amazing product and brand.
