Avene: Thermal Spring Water Spray

17 May 2010 Tags: , , , , 4 Comments

I was just having a conversation where I listed the things I did and used during my worst eczema break out and something came up that I haven’t reviewed yet and that’s Avene’s thermal spring water spray. Now a days I save my pennies by using a refillable spray bottle with regular spring water and a dash of aloe vera juice in it as a DIY replacement, however if my skin ever got as bad as it was then again I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to using this stuff; if my homemade solution wasn’t helping that is. The reason is simply because using this did help, especially in the hot summer. I do admit that the fine mist of the Avene spray is better than the big droplets in my homemade spray at covering the skin evenly and sinking into the pores quickly. It helps remove any surface dirt and sweat which can contribute to the itch of eczema. If something on my skin is causing me to itch, be in from a work environment or a dusty book, using this for a few seconds about 20 cm from my face stops that itch by removing the irritating particles. Regardless of whether or not avene’s thermal spring water is actually naturally beneficial to the skin, this mechanism of cooling and cleaning the skin will definitely help stop the itch-scratch cycle, which is crucial in treating eczema. This gets a 5 out of 5 as does the concept of thermal water sprays for the face in general. Handy tip: they are also very nice at setting mineral make-up. If your in Australia (and some other countries) buying this online is much cheaper. Last time I checked the tiniest bottle available (50ml I think) was $10 AU in Priceline, I’ve seen Avene water sprays for half that price online, so it’s definitely worth the P&H costs in my opinion.

    Hi there Amanda,

    A large can of Avene Eau Thermale is standing on my desk even as I type; I ran out to buy it the day after I read your comments! I’m trying to be more disciplined about my routine now, though it’s hard to when I’ve got a million and one things to do whenever I’m at work. My French colleague is quite amused at how much I’ve contributed to the French economy over the past few weeks!

    Oh but the French are renowned for having good skin, despite all the pastries ;-)
    Yes, the spray is great for when environmental irritants are causing your skin to itch. Stopping the itch-scratch cycle is essential, once you can do that the skin has a chance to heal and both this, and antihistamines can address that. The creams are then more for the healing (but those that dampen the itch too, obviously help on this level as well).
    Keep me updated, you’ll kick it eventually but sometimes it takes a period of investigation & trial and error to find out what the cause is and how to overcome it.
