Hey hey hey!So it’s been a while since I posted a product review- I’ve just been getting back into the swing of things here at home.
When I got back home I arrived to receive an amazing package from Avène!
I got sent this amazing package after winning the Hydrance Glow competition with Avène. And I loved the products so much I thought they deserved a feature on the blog.
I hadn’t heard of Avène before they came to South Africa, but after traveling a bit and meeting girls who are crazy about the brand, my trust in the product has grown and these goodies have helped reinforce all the great reviews I’ve heard.
Let’s start with the Hydrating Serum. What’s great about Avène products is that a little, goes a long way. I just need one drop of this serum to apply to my whole face. I apply it after cleansing and toning but before moisturizing. It’s amazing. You can feel the difference in your Skin almost instantly as it leaves it feeling silky and smooth. It relieves any feelings of tightness in the skin and contributes to eliminating fine lines caused by dryness. If you’re gonna buy any product from this range, this is the one!
Secondly, there’s the Rich Hydrating Cream, which I apply after the serum. You can alternate between using this and the Hydrating Skin Tone Perfector (read my review here) depending on what results you want from your moisturizer. This can be used everyday and leaves the skin feeling silky, smooth and hydrated ALL DAY LONG. I mean it. I could exercise, sweat, shower and my face was still feeling great from my morning application. It contains SPF 20, to keep your skin protected in the harsh African sun.
If you follow 20 Something Somethings, you would have seen my featured review on the Hydrating Skin Tone Perfector (link) this is great to use on days that you need a bit of a tint from your moisturizer but don’t want to wear a full face of make up. This is always in my bag, you never know when you’ll need a touch up!
Lastly is the Thermal Spring Water. This product is said to be the miracle worker of the Avène range. It can help with many skin disorders such as eczema and be used after shaving, skin procedures, waxing and threading, after sports, while traveling, for allergic reactions, as an after sun treatment and many more! I use it mostly after threading, as it eliminates redness and soothes the skin immensely. It’s a great product for people with sensitive skin.
