But today is not that day! Today I will be reviewing the face cleaning products I was given for christmas that I haven't really used properly until now! so here they are!
The Avene face routine!!!
Ok so! here are my views on this set that I received from my lovely aunt for christmas!
This is the first product on the left. I love it! You spray it on your face and leave for a minute, then pat dry. The mist is pure thermal water so it really is soothing. It isn't only for your face either! I shaved my legs a couple of days ago and whatever soap or razor I had used really irritated the skin on my legs. I simply sprayed a little of the mist on to them and within ten minutes I found my irritation had calmed way down!!! Instantly after spraying though because it's a mist and it's cold you are soothed due to the moisture and temperature of the spray. It just took about ten minutes for my irritation to calm down.
I would definitely rate the mist at a 4/5.
For any of you that don't know, Avene is a french brand that incorporates the us of avene thermal spring water for the use on sensitive and irritated skins. That is why I find the cleanser so soothing! The cleanser rids me of nearly all my makeup (sometimes I have very stubborn mascara!) and makes my skin feel very smooth and clean. I would definitely rate this cleanser a 4/5.
Extremely rich compensating cream.
The 'rich compensating cream' however, I am not fond of. It feels very thick on my skin (which is mostly dry) but even on my dry skin the cream made me break out the first time I used it, as it just felt heavy and blocked my pores. I do use this cream sometimes but only on occasions when my skin is scarily dry and flakey and I use it sparingly.
So this cream only gets a 2/5.
Overall I think I'd have to give this set a 3.5/5. The cream is too heavy and at first so was the cleanser. Now I find myself using the cleanser more and more, and I'm in love with the mist spray.
Does anyone else have these products? what do you think? x
