I have one in my handbag and one in the office. I use it the most during summer to refresh my skin after being in the sun or after playing sports. Sitting in an office all day, the air-conditioning can dry up the skin, hence every now and then I like to spray some on my face to make it feel a bit more moist and refreshing. It makes my skin feels less dry, although it does dry up really quickly. The smaller size is great for carrying in the handbag.

Better than sliced bread.
I discovered this while desperately searching for something to use on my eczema prone son. A pharmacist recommended Avene thermal spray (i think i had used EVERYTHING else, so why not)
in conjunction with trixera emollient cream.
It was fantastic. It didn't burn him or make it look strange (I didn't mention the worst spots were on his cute little face and thats important to a 7 year old). AND he loved doing the spray.
I take this everywhere. I bought one for the car. I take it camping. I use it on nappy rash, to set makeup, as a toner, just as a pick me up. LOVE IT!

Refreshing on a hot summer's day
Although this is essentially a glorified water spray, I do like that it keeps you feeling cool when the heat is on. It's also easy to use and the mist is a fine, not heavy one.
Only downsides are that the cool feeling isn't long lasting sadly and when I have sprayed it to calm any irritation, the redness hasn't gone away real quickly (although the heat has), so I've either had to re-spritz or just wait for my skin to calm down.
I would still continue to purchase this despite the downsides though as I enjoy the refreshment I get from spraying it onto my skin.

Refreshing and cools on a hot day
I bought this recently when Chemist Warehouse had 2 for $19.95 and I thought I would try it out. It comes in a plastic wrapped covering so you are guaranteed that no one has taken a couple of sprays out of your can.
The spray can is easy to press and use. I know that some are a bit hard and that isn't convenient at all. The spray leaves a fine mist of the spring water on you, just enough to refresh.
I also use it on any dry skin and its a little cooling after I spray it. The water itself is unscented and is clear, just like regular water.

I don't really know whether it does help my skin, but I like to think that it does. It feels refreshing & soothing when I spray it onto my skin, & I'm so glad that the spray-head works amazingly well to create a very fine mist. I wouldn't say it's a miracle product, but it feels really nice to use, especially during hot days.
I use this after a shower on really warm days - coming out of the shower & feeling fresh only to start sweating in the heat within a few minutes is the worst feeling in the world, & spraying this on helps combat that unpleasant humid feeling.

Perfect for summer!
I love that this comes in handbag friendly sizes and that I can take it anywhere. It's so refreshing in summer when you're out and about.. You wouldn't think a pressurised can of water would be a musthave item but it is! The light spray of mist is insanely cooling and dries from sight quite quickly too (So you don't look like you've just been sprung by a firehose!). End of the day it's got 4 stars from me because it isn't a totally lifechanging product but it is amazing to have one on hand.

So simple, but so useful
I'm actually surprised that I'm so surprised to see that this product has been reviewed so many times! It seems like the simplest thing in the world, but it's incredibly useful.
I admit, this is more of a summertime product for me. I keep it in the fridge and use it as a refresher throughout the day (just spritz it on my face as a pick-me-up) to make the summer heat more bearable. I also take a bottle along with me when I'm out with the kids on a really warm day. It's nice to have that little bit of cooling skin refresher when you're out in the heat of the sun. I also really like to just quickly mist it on my face before I apply a facial oil.
Yes, I could totally live without this product, but it just makes life a teensy bit nicer.

Soothes my irritated skin
Over the past few months, I have developed an irritating itch right down my legs that comes and goes every month. I have purchased many body lotions for itchy and irritated skin which have all helped, however nothing has worked as well as the Avene Thermal Spring Water at taking away the irritation and soothing my legs when I have scratched too much. I am also finding this a lifesaver during the Summer months since moving to Queensland!

It may be a simple placebo effect, or it could be legit, but I really do feel a difference. I spray the water over my moisturiser and it has a lovely cool feel to it. Also when it is hot or dry out, I like to spritz a bit on - I have the smallest size of can in my bag for this purpose. The larger size is at home in the bathroom.
