Just a glorified can of water? or a multipurpose skin saviour?


There are so many facial mists around at the moment, that I didn't know which one to choose, I knew that I wanted to try the product, but when my fiance had been referring to them as a 'can of glorified water' (yes he thinks he knows best,) I couldn't help but feel they were all rather a little expensive for what they were. Then I came across Avene's Eau Thermale Thermal Water Spray in a cute 50ml bottle in Boots, and at only £3.15 (which you can purchase here,) I didn't think I could grumble, as most are at least double that, and miles too big. 

This product came with a leaflet, but give me paper and it disappears, in a skittles advert kind of way, so I'm just going by the bottle here - This product is 'tested by dermatologists' and 'is a key element for sensitive, hypersensitive and allergic skin.' It acts as a multipurpose product which can be used for many skin situations such as skin irritation, razor burn, sun burn, to set make up and even diaper rash for you mummy's out there. So all in all this product aims to be used in a variety of situations to help soothe skin. 

I must admit, that when I first got this product, I sprayed it on my face, (a tad too close,) ended up with a pretty wet face, and was left feeling rather miffed about it, so in my handbag it went, pretty much unloved. Then around a week later, I was in the car with Dan and I noticed that my skin was peeling rather a lot, we were on our way out for a meal, so this bothered me, as I hate to see dry and flaking skin, and I had clearly forgotten to moisturise. So I took the water out of my bag, in the hope that it would do something, I sprayed it onto the area, and left it to dry, then a few minutes later Dan turned around and said that my skin wasn't peeling anymore, it seemed to have put back the moisture in my skin and he was so impressed that he made me spray him too. 

Now we are always reaching for this little can of 'glorified water' as it has become a constant savior, when we are out in the car on a hot day, I always spray a fine mist,  far away, (I've learnt my lesson) onto our faces, and  it instantly cools us down. We also use it at home, like if Dan has cut himself shaving or I have burnt my hand on the straighteners, (yep were a right pair,) then spraying this on instantly soothes the skin.

So neither of us think of it as just a can of 'glorified water' anymore, as we both reach for it on a daily basis, and although I'm sure you'll all still have your suspicions, please try it before making up your mind, I would go as far as to say it is a real handbag savior.

Have you tried any of the facial mists yet? what did you think?
