Trialling Out Avene Skincare

Tuesday, 12 September 2017

I am officially in love with French Pharmacy....

Avene is a French skincare brand that is based on optimising ingredients for the benefit of people's skin, especially for those who suffer from irritations, eczema and acne. As someone who has sensitive skin as well as had eczema in the past, I always cling to brands that are good for sensitive skin. Before trying out Avene I had tried out Caudalie which has such good products for my sensitive skin, their Vinosource range is incredible. From then on, I had a feeling that French pharmacy might be my new favourite thing. A couple of weeks ago, Avene sent me samples of their skincare products after I told them some of the concerns that I have with my skin. The main problem that I have with my skin would have to be the blackheads around my nose, they recommended that I try out their Skin Recovery Cream* and Hydrance Optimale Serum*. 

I have been using The Avene Thermal Spring Water (review post) in my daily skincare routine. This was a huge bonus as, during the months that I used it, I was in the middle of a heavy heatwave so this helped with unbearable heat. The Thermal Spring Water is also great for making my skin look and feel fresh on a daily basis. So you could say that I was very excited about trying more of this brand...

The Avene Skin Recovery Cream //  I started using this cream over a month ago and I must say that I have seen a lot of improvements especially around my nose area. I was under a bit of stress and with that I started to break out into what I like to call "stress rashes".  Within in a week, I saw a huge difference and after one use, the cream helped to reduce the irritation. Before using this, I thought that the cream would be heavy but it isn't, it is lightweight and has a soft texture. I really love the name of this cream as it has definitely helped to restore my skin to how it was before the stress. Not to mention the blackheads around my nose which have reduced and has made my nose feel quite smooth. 

The Avene Hyrdrance Optimale Serum //  I have tried quite a few serums in the past and I instantly fell in love with this serum. The Hydrance Optimale Serum contains a high concentration of the Avene Thermal Spring Water which hydrates and calms the skin immediately after use. The Serum is incredibly lightweight and fragrance free, after using this with the Skin Recovery cream my skin has been continously left with clamity, nourishment and hydration. My skin feels incredibly soft after using this and of course, I like to spray the Avene Thermal Facial Spray afterwards which feels lovely after a long day! 

The Avene skincare brand has made me eager to try more of their products and I must say that I am very impressed by them. I definitely need to try more of this brand, maybe next I'll try out their masks!
