I am always excited to try new skincare products, so when I saw Escentual were looking for bloggers to try Avène Soothing Hydrating Serum, I jumped at the chance and I am really pleased that I did, because it has definitely improved the look and feel of my skin.
I hadn't tried anything from Avène before and didn't know much about the Brand or their products. They are a French Brand that use Avène Thermal Spring Water in their products, which is known for its 'soothing and anti-irritating properties', making them 'the ideal line for sensitive skin'.
This Serum is 'highly concentrated in Avène Thermal Spring Water' which 'provides an immediate calming effect' and also contains Glycerine that 'offers superior moisturising, suppleness and comfort'. Avène say this Serum will leave your skin with a 'velvety feeling' and with 'balance and softness restored'.
This Serum has a lightweight gel texture that feels really refreshing when applied and absorbs quickly into your skin, leaving it feeling silky smooth. I have been using this for about 2 weeks now and I apply 2-3 pumps in the evening and then wait a few minutes for it to really sink into my skin before I apply my moisturiser.
I have combination/oily skin and have had a few drier patches recently, but since using this they have gone and I have definitely seen an improvement in my skin, it now looks more even and feels much more hydrated. Sometimes products that aren't specifically designed for combination skin can make my skin a bit more oily than usual but this hasn't :)
The bottle is made of glass which I think makes this feel like a luxury product and the pump is perfect to make sure you get just the right amount of Serum.
After using this I really want to try some other things from the Avène range, especially the Thermal Water Spray and Cleanance Mask.
If you are looking for something to help soothe and balance your skin I would definitely recommend Avène Soothing Hydrating Serum especially if you have sensitive skin. You can get this from Escentual here and at the moment it has 15% off and is only £14.45 for 30ml!
Have you tried this or any other products from Avène?
Thanks for reading :)
