Great for summer, in fact it's a must have product for your bag in summer. It's a very fine mist spray so it can cool you down in an instant without feeling like you've sprayed yourself in the face with a hose. It's soothing to spray this on sunburnt skin and I believe it calms down the nasty burn and allows your skin to heel quicker.
I have used this after my shower and cleansing routine as a toner, and it works just fine however I do feel that this product is #1 for summer cool down usage and a must for after sun care.

not cheap for what feels like plain water, but it does work so . . .
I never understood the deal with these thermal spring water spray-cans, but after trying the mini avene one i can see at least part of the appeal.
i'm lazy so i basically use this as an add-on treatment for my eczema on my neck, which sometimes stubbornly refuses to be moisturised either by drinking or creams.
At those times i spray the avene water directly onto the irritated dry patch (then add a calming basic moisturiser) and it aids in remoisturising and calming it down again. note that that's AID, not fix.
when i have eczema and i go to the beach, usually the seawater helps too so i largely think it's the increased minerals and salts (in the right combination) that aid in the rehydration, and not some magical property of avene water alone. But this water comes in a spray can (thats not too pointed, or wide, not too weak or too strong) and doesn't feel sticky afterwards so yay for convenience!

Best in Beauty 2014
Avene Thermal Spring Water comes in 50ml, 150ml and 300 ml sizes. I purchased the 50 ml size, which lasted some time, using once a day.
The facial spray contains many goodies such as, trace elements, silica, calcium, magnesium. Contents that you would expect in a good spring water. It is free from bacteria and preservatives. The product is gentle, so perfect for the most sensitive skin. I don't suffer from sensitive skin, but wanted the benefits by using as a toner.
Not sure exactly how to use this Spring Water, I began by simply spraying on a cotton pad, then wiping over skin. After some consideration, I decided that I should just spray on my face, and let my skin soak in all the product, which in turn would allow me to reap all the benefits that this spray offers.
Would I repurchase? I would. I just love how soft and light this water feels on my skin, I enjoy using this fine mist spray. I could imagine just how refreshing it would be to use in the coming warmer months.

Not really sure if it's doing anything
I started using the Avene sensitive skin care range after developing rosacea in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy, and this thermal spring water came in the starter kit. I have to say that while the spray is refreshing and feels very good when my skin starts flushing, I'm not sure that its doing anything that a spray bottle of normal water would do. However after a week of using all of the products in the starter kit together, my skin has really calmed down and is probably better hydrated than its ever been in my adult life. How much this spray is contributing to that I don't know, I think the hydration is coming more from the skin recovery cream and not stripping my face with a strong cleanser. When the water runs out I'll go without it for a while and keep using the other products and see if I need it and its worth spending $25 a bottle on it!

I got a few sample size bottles of this product and i feel like it doesnt really make a difference on my face. So i definitely wouldnt buy the full size of it because it's expensive and it's not so effective. I guess it's a good refreshing mist but i personally dont find it as a need in my skin routine.

I received this in the priceline sincere goody bag and although it is nice and refreshing to use, I definitely wouldn't buy this for this price. It honestly just feels like normal water to me, I didn't notice any extra hydration.

must have in my bag
I love this spray, always bring this to my bag. I will spray to my face whenever I fell dry on my face, easy to use just spray and you will have bouncy skin.

I really love this product, as it's very refreshing for my dry skin. The fine mist is really cool and calming and I've been using this non-stop.
Since the winter weather has been making my skin terrible, this really helps it feel more refreshed, but otherwise I haven't seen much of a use for it. Still, I love this!

great nice refreshing and cooling mist. Great to use as a toner, to set make up or just to refresh yourself on a hot summers day. I spray this down my back on those 40 degree day. feels awesome.

Not so Effective
I received this as part of a bulk beauty bag. And I can't quite understand this product, essentially spring water in an aerosol can. It does leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed. However I get better results from my People for Plants Toner.
Despite its claims for irritated or red skin I didn't see any improvement from a product that's only ingredient is water.
