A few years ago I discovered Avene, a French brand formulated from springwater. It also began my fascination with French pharmacy brands. But we will get to that another time. I set out to try the Avene product line. Its springwater spray was the first product I tried and I have been a loyal supporter eversince.
During a stressful time in my life, this was a perfect “non-medical” solution to the ugly welts that formed on my face and body. I would spray this on and let it dry and keep repeating until the skin calmed down. Dermatologists couldn’t help me but this could.
At that time I tried many “organic” and so called “sensitive skin” products but they just made things worse.
When there is no skin emergency, it’s a nice pick me up on flights and when I feel overheated after a day at the beach. It is also helpful for diaper rash to cleanse and calm the skin. Sometimes when I cannot find anywhere to wash my hands, this also comes in handy.
