Avene Eau Thermale Soothing Hydrating Serum

I have been trying out the soothing hydrating serum by Avene* for the past 2 weeks and it is now a prominent part of my daily skin care routine. Avene is a popular French skin care company, this is the first product I have tried by them and definitely not the last. £17 
I have used this serum morning and night every single day, after cleansing and before moisturising. It smooths out skin, leaving a fresh dewy complexion and a soft base for make up. I felt that it really hydrated my skin deep down, not just on the top layers like moisuriser does, and this feeling lasted all day long. My skin has never felt so soft and looked so even. I have never normally bothered with serums but it spreads on easily and drys instantly, so is a quick and easy step in your routine. 

I love the frosted glass look to this bottle and you only need about one or two pumps for your whole face so it should last a long time. It looks and feels like an expensive product so I was surprised to find out it was only £17. You may think this is still a bit pricey but most serums in the drugstore are around £10 so I think it's definitely worth paying that tiny bit extra. 

For the past 6 months my skin is in the best condition it has ever been. I have been using different products so I am not 100% sure what has and hasn't contributed. But I am sure that this product makes my skin feel absolutely amazing so I will definitely be sticking to it and buying it again. 

You can purchase this product from Escentual, they currently have a French Pharmacy product sale on at the moment so this product is only £12.75. But hurry because this ends midnight tonight!

Lots of love

P.S. I will do a skin care post in the future when I actually figure out what products have cleared up my skin so look out for that.
