In the summer it can be ever so refreshing to spray a bit of water onto your face… but what water to use? Well, I have been using Avène Thermal Water the last couple of weeks and here’s what I think about it…
I had this thermal water gathering dust in the bathroom cabinet for several months. But then I saw a youtube video from ‘GeekUpWithAnne’ (you should really check out her videos, very informative and funny, but sadly only for the Dutch-speaking souls amongst us).
In this video she teaches you how to create a flawless foundation look. After putting on her foundation, she sprays on quite an amount of water onto her face before blending that all in with a beauty blender. Now I tried that out and I must say that you really get a more even result and it makes your make-up lasting longer. So a big thank you Anne for that tip!
Since I saw that video, the Avène thermal water is now part of my make-up routine. I also use it just to freshen myself up on a warm day and I use it after removing my make-up and before putting on my night-cream. But there are so many other ways to use this water…
Here’s what I could read on the Avène website:

- easy to use
- doesn’t dry out the skin like regular water does
- it makes your make-up last longer
- blended in with your foundation, it makes the result more even
- None that I can think of.
I have used this thermal water at night after taking off my make-up and to refresh my skin when sunbathing. But I just loving using it in the morning during my make-up routine as it gives such an even finish ànd it makes my make-up last longer!
I don’t think I can do without a thermal water since I’ve become used to it, so I guess I’ll buy it (or a similar one) again!
Do you use thermal water? How do you use it? Let me know in the comments!
