Avene Soothing Hydrating serum


When facial serums first hit the headlines I was dubious. Do I really need to be adding yet another step in my routine? Since then, I have read so many different reviews that rave about them. I have tried a few  but if I’m honest I haven’t found one that has made me really change my mind about them. So when Escentual asked if I would like to try Avene soothing hydrating serum*. I jumped at the chance as it is one of the serums I have heard a lot of rave reviews about.

Avene say :
Get a highly concentrated boost of repairing and protecting power for your skin with the Avène Soothing Hydrating Serum.
This intensely soothing and hydrating formulation is ideal for sensitive skin, or skin that is easily effected by stress, pollution, or irritation. With its high concentration of Avène Thermal Spring Water, the serum works to soothe and heal the skin with each and every application. This soothing sensation has a long-lasting effect thanks to patented lipsomes, which work to diffuse the ingredients gradually into the upper layer of the skin.
Added Glycerine provides deep nourishment, hydration and comfort for the complexion. The silky serum glides on luxuriously, leaving skin feeling supple, smooth and soft.
Apply day and night to a cleansed face and neck. Apply your usual moisturiser afterwards.
Non-comodogenic, hypoallergenic, paraben free.

The serum itself is has a silky feel to it and is white in colour. Its easily absorbed by the skin without a greasy feeling. Other serums I have used have left my skin feeling slightly sticky but I didn’t have this problem with this product. However I find the best way to apply serums, is to apply quickly to stop any tackiness. Then to wait a few minutes before applying your moisturser.

You only need the smallest bit to hydrate your face and neck. One pump is more than sufficient for your face and neck. I love that this serum is made from water and doesn’t contain any oil. So it doesn’t clog up your pores, which is a godsend to me. As blocked pores is something I suffer from.

After a few weeks of use my skin felt softer and more supple. the formula is really soothing to stressed out skin leaving your skin replenished. it gently restores moisture to the the skin while leaving your skin with what feels like a protective shield.  
It instantly soothed any areas of inflammation and help with any dry patches. Serum’s are definitely an extra step in your skincare routine worth taking. I feel I need less coverage when applying make up now as my skin looks so much clearer. I loved this serum and really recommend it to anyone who has sensitive skin or even those with dry skin. This product leaves your skin feeling really hydrated and after a few weeks your skin will be left feeling plumper and fuller.

For a limited time you can get this serum at Escentual for only £14.45 instead of £17.00!! To get this deal visit the site here!!
