Eau Thermale Avene Review



A couple of weeks ago I gave my skincare regime a complete overhaul and decided to give Eau Thermale Avene a try.  I’m a great believer in switching up your skincare regime every 4-6 weeks as your skin can become immune to any products you use on a regular basis and stop being as effective.  The best way to overcome this is by simply taking a break for a few weeks.

Eau Thermale Avene is a cult French skincare and body care line which is loved by those who have sensitive skin.  As a sufferer of adult acne, anything which won’t irritate or aggravate my skin is a must try!



Micellar Lotion               

I’m a huge micellar water fan and it’s an essential part of my daily routine.  The Eau Thermale Avenue one has a slightly soapier texture and doesn’t feel as refreshing on the skin compared to my usual choice from Bioderma.  However, I found it picks up and removes more dirt than the Bioderma one which is a firm plus.

At around £13 it isn’t the cheapest on the market but I’d happily repurchase it regardless.

Cleansing Foam

This is super gentle on the skin.  If you get this in your eyes there is no stinging or hopping around the bathroom while you throw a bucket load of water in your eye!  For sensitive or young skin it is a must.

For me, it was a little too gentle.  I like something which really feels like it’s really purifying and cleansing the skin.  Having said that, I didn’t come out in any spots while using this, so it clearly did an excellent job of removing any dirt and daily grime.

Gentle Toning Lotion

Toners have slightly fallen out of favour in the beauty world.  However, I am still a fan and use one daily.  As toners go, this is lovely.  It’s very refreshing and doesn’t tighten or dry out the skin, like so many other toners do. If you’re not a usual toner fan, I defy anyone to try this one and not like it!

Skin Recovery Cream

Without a shadow of a doubt this was my favourite Eau Thermale Avene product.  The recent shift in weather has left my skin on the drier side and this has been perfect at keeping my skin in check.

It is super hydrating and moisturising but has the added bonus of sinking into the skin effortlessly.  A lot of these richer type creams take a lot of working into the skin but happily, not this one.  It has all the benefits without any of the hassle.

I would say the Skin Recovery Cream is defintitely in my top 5 moisturisers of all time and the reasonably affordable price tag doesn’t hurt either.

Thermal Spring Water

This is Eau Thermale Avene’s hero product and has a cult following.  I’ve never been much of a fan of these types of face mists.  I like the idea of them but never actually remember to use them.  Having said that, when I did remember to reach for the Thermal Spring Water I definitely enjoyed the pick me up it gave my skin.

My only complaint is if you have a full face of makeup on the mist isn’t fine enough and I feel like it makes my makeup slip and slide.

    I had no idea that skin care products needed to be switched out every 4-6 weeks! No wonder there are so many skin care products out there haha. There’s definitely a market. This brand looks good!


    • thatnewd November 8, 2017 / 11:22 pm

      Haha that’s such a good point! It also explains why I have so many beauty products xx

  8. Laura November 6, 2017 / 7:54 pm

    I have tried only their eye cream and I wasn’t really impressed with it and after that I haven’t tried anything from them, even though I have read plenty of good reviews x


    • thatnewd November 8, 2017 / 11:22 pm

      That’s interesting to hear. I’m always on the hunt for a good eyecream but I won’t be trying this one, haha xx

    I also believe changing skincare regime after a span of time. I guess sometimes our skin may need to have short break every once in a while. These are wonderful products and great review love.

    Trying different products are always tricky because you just don’t know how agreeable they will be for your skin and body. Glad most of it is working out for you. I like the tiP you gave in terms of changing your regime every now and again. Thanks for sharing.


    • thatnewd November 14, 2017 / 10:43 pm

      It’s so good for your skin to change up your products every 4-6 weeks. Your skin will be thanking you xx

    I’m a big fan of Avene – they have really great products. I especially love their summer skincare products like the sunscreen.



    • thatnewd November 14, 2017 / 10:49 pm

      Ooooh I haven’t tried the SPF yet. Will keep it in the mind when the summer rolls around xx
