Most of you would have known that Avène is famous for their Spring Water many years ago. To those who are not aware, they also launched their own skincare which addresses certain types of skin concern.
I received Avène Gentle Cleansing Foam, Avène Spring Water, Avène Gentle Toner, Avène Hydrance Optimale Light Hydrating Cream and Avène Day Protector UV EX two weeks ago and decided to take up the 14-day challenge to try out these products.
Let me started off by reviewing their Avène Gentle Cleansing Foam. This cleansing foam for face and eyes are specifically formulated for normal to combination, sensitive skin.
|Avène Gentle Cleansing Foam|
The texture of the Cleansing Foam is light and not creamy. It does NOT contain PARABEN and it is suitable for oily to combination skin and sensitive skin too. The key ingredients of the Gentle Cleansing Foam includes Patented Glutamic Acid which mattifies and controls the excess oil, Gentle CleansingBase which cleanses and removes makeup thoroughly on face and eyes and Hydrating Agents which leaves skin soft and supple.
This soap-free cleanser is gentle and removes all the impurities on my skin leaving my skin soft. It also helps to regulate excess sebum production. You can apply to dry or damp face. Always remember to massage with fingertips focusing n T-zone and rinse thoroughly.
|Avène Thermal Spring Water|
Next step to use Avène Thermal Spring Water to soften, calm and soothe the face. Avène Thermal Spring Water takes in vital minerals and trace elements as it filters through the rocks of the River Orb Valley. Avène is widely recognized as number 1 in French pharmacies among dermo-cosmetic skincare brands and also the most recommended by dermatologists and pharmacists worldwide.
If your skin feels dry or itchy, Avène Thermal Spring Water is the right product to use. Sometimes I even use this to spray on a piece of dry mask and place on my face for 2 to 3 minutes whenever I feel my skin is dry. You can choose to spray as often as necessary especially after exercise, sunburn or to set makeup too.
If you are looking for a mild toner, I guess Avène Gentle Toner is the right one for you. This gentle toner is suitable for sensitive skin and does not contain any alcohol content which will dry out your skin. It also can be used to rebalance your skin and is formulated with natural silicates to protect skin from external causes of dryness, leaving skin soft and fresh.
I love how this tone helps to soften my skin and it leaves my skin feels fresh each time I uses it. Whenever I feel my skin is slightly sensitive especially after I have done my laser treatment, this would be the perfect toner to go for since it is gentle on my skin.
|Avène Hydrance Optimal Light Hydrating Cream|
This cream helps to restore skin's barrier and prevents moisture loss. I like this lightweight cream as it absorbs onto my skin easily leaving my skin fresh and soft after application. You will also notice that your texture are even out after using the cream. Certain cream will cause some itchiness on my skin but definitely this cream will not do that on my face.
|Avène Day Protector UV EX cream|
Before you go out especially in the morning, try out this Avène Day Protector UV EX cream. This cream contains SPF 30 PA+++ which does not leave the skin feeling sticky each time applying it. Best of all, this is suitable for sensitive skin. I like how it is lightweight and absorbs easily onto my skin. Try to apply this everyday before you leave for work since it has sunblock protection to protect you from harmful UV rays.
Overall Avène skincare range is suitable for those who have sensitive, oily to combination and dry to combination skin. You can choose to use whichever range which are suitable for your skin. I love how it helps to soothe my skin especially when I have outdoor outing the whole day and the Avène Thermal Spring Water always come to the rescue of my sunburns and tired skin. On the lighter note, I believe that this is a good skincare range to try for those who have eczema or sensitive skin.
