I simply love it. i use it every day. Before moisturiser, to refresh myself, to set the make up, to bring some relief to my skin ( when needed), to cool myself down! i just adore the product. Those with sensitive skin will appreciate this thermal water for sure.

Refreshing and soothing
Having dry and irritated skin at times, I find this spray to work a charm! The mist is beautiful, probably the best mist I've tried- other sprays I have tried squirt into your face which is a real turn off. It feels refreshing and really is a great pick-me-up which is great on hot days. I love the different size availabilities too and the 50mL bottle is such a cute and convenient size to carry around. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars is my scepticism in the product even though I know it is unique spring water from Avene in France- but am I really just paying for water? Despite this, it is such a great product to use and quite novel too :)

never thought a can of water could be this handy and amazing. Refreshing, I use it to set my makeup, to refresh, to cool down, to wet my brushes and sponges if need be. It's so good. I love how fine the mist is as well.

Just a can of water
I'm not a fan of this product.
I received one in my Best in Beauty prize pack and was happy to try it out, as I like to have some sort of refreshing, moisturising product on my desk at work and prefer a spritzer as I don't want to have to remove my makeup. I have used the Evian version in the past and enjoyed it, and also have an A'kin one at home.
This one doesn't seem as good. The water squirts out rather than mists, and I feel it leaves drops all over my face and I feel like I have to check to make sure my mascara hasn't started to run. It's not as soothing as other products, and I think there are others on the market that actually add a bit to the skin other than simply water, so I'm unimpressed.
It doesn't irritate at all (well - how can it, its just water) but surprisingly didn't feel very hydrating. If anything it made my skin feel drier as it dried, rather than provide that invigorating moist burst I was expecting.
What else can I say? Its a can of water. I won't be repurchasing this, I'd rather something with a bit more oomph.

good for sensitive skin!
I usually use this product after taking shower, freshen my face, feel soft and hydrated.

still undecided.. just water?
My skin is combo/oily. I bought this a couple of months ago and am still undecided about the product. It claims to do a lot of the face and body, but I don't see a difference. Maybe it's because I don't have very sensitive/dry skin and it seems to claim to treat problems associated with that skin type. All I feel that it does for me is cool my face and moisturise it a little - if at all? I use it about once a day but not at a designated time, I just use it when I want to freshen up or something.
Overall, if your skin isn't too dry / sensitive, this may not change your skin in any way. Also, it makes a lot of claims but I don't see it obviously delivering on any of them, either its effect is really subtle or it's a bit of a gimmick. I have a feeling it may just be glamourised water. However, don't let me stop you from trying it out if you want to :)

A Must for Travel
I bought a can of this in Japan when I couldn't find a moisturiser that would suit my oily skin, and the language barrier was causing me a few issues! A beautiful Japanese woman handed it to me and I bought it, and have never looked back!

Love this spritzer!
I only just bought this when I went to Singapore last month since it was 2 for $18. I wasn't expecting anything but man was I wrong. It's not just water! It's really hydrating and it's really good for my sensitive skin. I use this when it was really hot and humid in Singapore and it helped sooth my skin. I also keep it in the fridge to keep it nice and cool. I love it!!

I received this product in a priceline skincare goody bag, and was excited to try it. I like to use this product if my skin is red from exercise, or red from a pimple. I spray this on clean facial skin, wait awhile, and then pat dry. It helps my skin to calm down and relax. I would recommend this product for anybody who has acne-prone skin, as prior to make-up application, as it can help to relieve redness. This is also a great product to use in summer or after exercising, as it's very cool and refreshing.

A lovely toner for my skin type
I have fair skin that is sensitive, moderately dry, gets the occasionally blemish and is prone to redness, and I find this product to be a match made in heaven for my skin type.
It is my 'toner' in my skincare regime, and I use it each morning and evening after cleansing or following a face mask. I spray quite a large amount, then don't touch it and simply wait for it to absorb in.
What I find it does for my skin...
-Gets rid of any tightness by very lightly hydrating the skin and returning it to its natural state
-Calms any ruddiness or redness I have, particularly in my cheeks, incredibly well
-Soothes irritation, dry patches and sore blemishes.
-Creates a good base for serums or moisturisers that follow.
(Also, tip, if you find that the moisturiser you use is a bit too heavy, apply it before the spring water has 100% absorbed and the face is still slightly damp, for a more light weight hydration).
Overall, I definitely definitely recommend this for sensitive/irritated skin ladies!
