It is estimated that nearly 50% of the population suffers from sensitive skin. And yeah, I am one of them. Hence, my facial skin easily becomes red; especially if I opt to change another facial cleanser. Having said that, I was lucky that one of my beauty consultants helped me to treat my skin better. So, my skin sensitivity is not as serious as before. Still, my skin gets irritated, everytime when I am back from vacation. In this circumstance, it left only one way to get rid of it – Eau Thermale Avène hypersensitive skin product range.
Hypersensitive skin requires special care to help minimize its symptoms. Eau Thermale Avène hypersensitive skincare range products formulated with Parcerine, a new patented active for intolerant skin that rapidly calms irritation and provided long-lasting protection. Also, these products are formulated with a minimum number of ingredients that have been dermatologically tested for intolerance on skin that is easily irritated by soap, fragrance, colorants and preservatives. To treat the intolerant skin, Eau Thermale Avène has come out with the most basic skincare product: Extremely Gentle Cleanser and Skin Recovery Cream. It is believed that, with consistent use, these products will help the skin to recover its natural balance and comfort level.

A very gentle cleanser rich in Avène Thermal Spring Water that soothes and softens the skin. It contains Parcerine, a new active that reduces skin reactivity. Formulated as a non-rinse cleanser, to avoid any potentially irritating effect of harsh tap water. The plant derived soap-free cleansing agent removes make-up from face and eyes.
How to use:
Apply morning and evening using cotton pad or with the tips of your finger, using light massaging in circular motion. Dry gently without rubbing. If you have Avène Thermal Spring Water, spray a light mist before applying Skin Recovery Cream.
I was surprised when knowing that the Extremely Gentle Cleanser doesn’t require to rinse off with water. It is odorless, unlike their other products. However, I felt the layer was slightly thick and greasy. Therefore, I will still wipe away before I apply Skin Recovery Cream.

I love the D.E.F.I sealing system a lot. However, when first time using it, I didn’t know how to control and press too much cream. Since my T-zone is oily, I only apply the cream on my cheeks and the irritated part. Else, my entire face will become extremely oily after few minutes.
