Hello my Beauties,
hope you are having a lovely day so far.
Today i would like to talk about a nice little Skin Care Travel Kit, that i discovered in my local pharmacy. I don’t know if you can get Avene in drugstores where you live, but in Germany it’s mostly a pharmacy brand, such as Vichy, La Roche Posay and sometimes even Bioderma.
We all love mini travel sized products, since they are easy to just test out or really to have it with you on a go.
This new kit caught my eye, because it came in a really adorable girly little pouch or cosmetic bag, that you can easily throw in your purse and keep your favorite daily beauty items in it.
(The surface of the bag can be cleaned very easily with a wet towel, so don’t be afraid to just leave it on the bottom of your purse.)
The products inside are:
1) Avene Thermal Spring Water (50ml) - soothes , hydrates and rejuvenates your skin after dermatological procedures or simply works as a refresher during the hot and humid summer time or helps your skin after spending time in dry heated rooms during winter.
2) Avene Extremely Gentle Cleanser Lotion (50ml) - it’s for those of us with the most intolerant skin. This soap-free, soothing cleanser helps to remove dirt, oil, and other impurities. My skin feels completely comfortable after using this lotion.
3) Avene Skin Recovery soothing Cream/Mask (5ml) - soothes, relieves irritation, and protects reactive and delicate skin types. Works well as a hydrating mask when applied for 10-15 minutes.
I have been using the products, since the kit came out in the beginning of february.
The cream mask is obviously already gone, since it was a really little tube. It had the usual very creamy, quite think texture to it, but i had no problems with spreading it over my face. After 5 minutes it was still a little bit sticky, but as it works also as a mask, it obviously can not be absorbed that quickly from your skin, which is fine.
There is still the half of the milky looking cleanser lotion left, because a little bit of the product on a cotton pad goes a long way, especially if i’m not wearing a heavy makeup that day, that needs to be removed. I feels really gentle and doesn’t make me break out, nor give me a rash. And you know my skin is pretty sensitive, so i’m usually really picky with my face products.
I used up the half of the thermal water, since i like to spray it all over my face, when i’m done cleansing and moisturizing. It gives such a nice fresh feel to my face. This is the kind of product i have been using for probably around 2 years now. Mostly in summer on the go. You know how humid & dirty big town streets can get, when it’s about +30°C outside. You just have to have a refreshing spray or wet little portable towels with you.
I see people using these products with any skin type, even if it says for sensitive skin. And the small travel size bottles & tubes makes it easy to be “brave” and just test them out. Besides it would make an adorable little present for your girlfriend, sister or mom.
When i’m done with my Biodroga Institute Mask, i might be getting that Skin Recovery soothing Cream/Mask in full size, since it looks like my skin quite enjoys the soothing effect of it.
Tell me, Beauties – have you used any Avène products before? If so, which is your most favorite one and why? Have you spotted this little travel size kit anywhere in your area? I’d love to hear from you!
Until next time – stay beautiful.
