Honestly, if I could give this spray 6 stars, I would. I just want to bathe in it all day, every day.

It's so gentle and so refreshing. And yes, I know what you're thinking, it's just water, right? Not quite, it's full of the brand's thermal spring water (low mineral content, neutral pH, etc.), which is super gentle on skin. 

I picked this up when I was going through a particularly stressful month and seeing a lot of breakouts and dry, red skin. This was a lifesaver. It felt amazing on my skin post cleansing, and it really helped keep my skin feeling plump and noticeably less red.

I love sprays for my face and this is in my top two! At first I didnt get what the big deal was. I thought oh it's just water what a rip off.... wow I was wrong and quick to judge. This summer I developed a rash on my hand that looked like I had punched a wall it was all bruised looking. This lasted for well over a month with no improvement. So I thought what the heck and sprayed some of the thermal water on my hand. Within 3 days my hand was almost completely back to normal and I was in shock. If it could do that for my hand imagine the benefits my skin gets if I use this constantly.

Ok I don’t know if there’s a huge difference in these products across the board they are all water sprays at the end of the day right? This one seems to last a real long while and doesn’t irritate my skin so I like it. I use it after I put on my make up sometimes if I feel like my face feels a bit dry and it does not interfere with my look.

I actually adore the Avene line. I ran across it while shopping in Blue Mercury. Excellent products at a competitive price point.

The facial spray is not my favorite product within the line. Not a big fan of the aerosol canister.. it did no harm but was not a show
stopper. If you are beginning to incorporate facial sprays into your routine- then this is a good place to start. For those who have become more discerning.. there are others which comfort sensitive or dehydrated skin

This is not a makeup setting spray. It's definitely a nice skincare item. I live in the South and it gets unbearably hot in the Spring and Summer, this is a lifesaver. I use it mostly in the mornings after washing my face to wake me up and to refresh my skin. I don't think it acts as a toner per-say but I find that it reduces my dryness/redness significantly enough to make my makeup application easier. My skin feels bouncy after using and it leaves no sticky or thick residue as well.

Honestly, I don’t see any magical results using this type of waters. I also feel that I don’t use up the whole amount as it won’t spray anymore, but i feel product inside when shaking.

Though these things don’t stop me from getting such waters as they are great for setting/blurring makeup, refreshing the face throughout the day (with or without makeup) or used to refresh while sunbathing. They are also great as part of skincare routine

LOVE LOVE LOVE. Many people will say its just water but theyre something in this water that just makes your face glow i love using this to remove facial cleansers or mask or even just softening the face and rebalancing after washing with tap water. This can also be used as a makeup spray if you like the glowy look where it just makes the powders look softer and the highlighted parts glowy its absolutely a dream and will be a forever purchase for me!

It does provide a nice refreshing feeling to the skin. The mist is light and not too powerful. The bottle that I had was a travel size so it was very convenient to throw into my bag when I was on the go. It is a great product, however, with it’s price point, I would suggest the Evian Sprays of that’s the type for spray you’re looking for.

My family and friends originally thought the idea of a spring water mist was a scam... why would you pay for water??? They have eaten their words. Lol Absolutely obsessed with the entire line!!!! I wish the price wasn't so high... but it's so very worth it. I typically order this through Dermstor.com....and I've found it on Amazon as well. The brand is amazing...I've tried a good bit of their products and they all have met or exceeded my expectations. This product included. I'm about to be 31 with an extremely stressful job in an ICU as a nurse...I work 13 hour shifts, get very little sleep, could use some better overall nutrition and in the summer I'm a beach bum sun worshiper...and engine who sees me even with no makeup on would swear to you I couldn't possibly be a day past my mid 20's.

I bought this from Amazon and this is what got me interested in the avene product line. I really love this spray! I used it after my toner and some times after my makeup just to make it a little hydrating if I thought it looked dry. I really think this helped my skin be more hydrating. This is essentially water that I'm spraying on my face, but there are additional minerals in there which are beneficial for the skin. I don't think that it would make a difference for everyone so I think it's a hit or miss for most people, my friend also tried it, but she wasn't as impressed. So if you're curious try it out :) and it may work for you.

My skin gets irritated really easily and I live in a place with a lot of sun and a lot of heat. Will this actually help with irritated skin? does it dry it out?
