Most Helpful Positive Review Great product but....
I have been using the Avene mineral spray for years. I get the large size, usually purchasing a few at a time so I am never out. I have tried various brands over the years but this one just feels the gentlest and nicest on my sensitive skin. My skin loves it! However, I have also gotten the occasional cans that the spray tip was faulty resulting in a split stream of spray that made me waste so much of the water. When I placed my order this last time I let customer service know of the occasional problem and asked that they double check that the order I was placing was from a batch with good spray nozzles. A local beauty supply store near me had once had to return a whole case of them for faulty spray nozzles which had all the customers returning them. I then had one of the worst exchanges with customer service I have ever had with any company. This person, who seems to be their entire customer service department accused me of shaking the cans repeatedly before use (something I would never do). She said shaking the cans would cause the spray nozzle to become clogged with minerals. I let her know that is not the case, I am not in the habit of shaking cans of water, and the faulty cans I have sometimes purchased where usually like that from the first spray. Also, UPS can be quite rough with the packages they deliver, so if shaking causes the spray nozzle to clog, what hope is there for a good spray nozzle. Anyway she decided to stick with her story that it is somehow all the customers fault. She had such an unpleasant manner I was shocked that this was quite a well known firms customer service rep. Now mind you, I wasn't even asking for exchanges or anything at all from them! Just a double check that my new cans had good nozzles. This exchange has so soured me on dealing with Avene that I am going to revisit my other brands. What is in the can is great, spray nozzle not always so good, customer service 0 stars!
Most Helpful Critical Review Purely a ridiculous luxury item (for ME)
This spray can be refreshing AFTER I've rinsed off face cleanser with tap water. But using it to help remove the cleanser with tissues is NO GOOD for me. My skin is very sensitive to friction. Accordingly, wiping my face--for ANY reason--even with this spay and the strongest, softest tissue I can find leaves my face red and irritated. And my skin feels unwashed. But since I bought it, I didn't want to waste it. So I use it to dampen my hair on post-wash days 1 and often day 2. But that's a very expensive way to dampen hair when a spray bottle of tap water works just as well. Bottom line: FOR ME, this is purely a luxury item. My skin, though extremely sensitive, can tolerate my municipal tap water. For a person on my budget, tolerant of tap water, purchasing a pricey can of water is nothing less than ridiculous.

I use this spray to wet my face before putting on moisturizer and serums. It has helped my face feel smoother and dewy!
I stopped washing my face in the sink

I got it after watching a tik tok of a girl who washes her face with this. I swear it's magic water. Within two days, I noticed that the texture of my skin was smoothen out, and I had less breakouts. My overall complexion looks healthy and has a glow. My dark circles were pretty much non existent. Not only did I find this to be a great hack for my face, but also my body. I suffer from eczema for years. I sprayed the water on my oldest rash and it immediately stopped itching and provided relief. The next day, I noticed some parts of the rash disappear. Definitely will be repurchasing in the future!
j from Ohio
I use this after I wash my face morning and night. Sometimes even in the middle of the day if I just want to feel refreshed. It's cooling and I believe it does stop you from itching if you have dry itchy skin.
Liz from California
So I've had this product for over a month. Been using it daily on my very sensitive skin that has been unusually dry and red over the last 4 months. I've seen some improvement for sure, but was a bit skeptical if it was due to this spray/ water or other changes in my routine. But a few days I was eaten alive by a mosquito, the bites were huge and incredibly inflamed. Topical hydrocortisone wasn't helping so I figured why not, and tried this spray on them. Holy cow it worked GREAT!! Not only did it help the itching immediately but the inflammation went down substantially. I'm so impressed. If you're on the fence and skeptical, just give it a try in the travel size like I did. It's worth the money!

love this refreshing mist. 💖 I use it in the morning instead of washing my face and it does the job✨
I would buy this product again and again until I can't no mo

I love this water it keeps my skin so smooth.
How does this work?!
Ashlyn from Tulsa, OK
I don't know how this product works, but it REALLY does. I'm a licensed esthetician and am skeptical of any skincare product that makes bold claims - especially one that's simply composed of water.
Since the weather has dropped in temperature and the air has become drier, I've been battling with a flare up of perioral dermatitis. I've dealt with it on and off all my life, but it's tricky to treat. For the last month I've had an increasingly irritated, inflamed, peeling rash on my chin despite scaling back on products and using different soothing treatments.
I didn't believe this product would work, but I decided to give anything a shot at this point for some relief. I simply spray this on my face after the shower and immediately top it with a gentle moisturizer at night. Within 3 days, my skin has been clearing up and HEALING. This stuff SERIOUSLY works! I will 100% repurchase this and recommend this to clients. You have to try it to believe it!!!
This baby comes with me everywhere
Bluejean from IL
I don't know how water calm my skin.... but, this is great. When I feel my skin is not happy I just a couple of spritz and happy skin. Since I don't know when my skin will be in a mood, I take this with me and it saves the day.
Carkel13 from Mississippi
I add this product after I get out of the shower to rehydrate/calm my skin before applying any serums and moisturizers. It does the trick for that, but for the price of it, I feel like I could buy something that has added benefits or more moisturizers for my dry skin. However, it does have a very cool and refreshing effect for a tired face.
It's must be magic!
JC from TX
I have very sensitive skin that gets red & blotchy all of the time. I don't like wearing makeup but sometimes I feel so self conscious when I'm bright red & blotchy. I just ordered this spray after reading the many excellent reviews, and it arrived in the middle of a bad skin day. I sprayed it all over my face thinking, "what do I have to lose?"Immediately, my skin felt cool and breezy and the hot inflamed feeling was gone. I caught my reflection in the bathroom mirror about 5 minutes later and Oh My God. My skin tone was even, my redness was gone, and my face had the most incredible glow…I am speechless. This stuff is a life saver.
For anyone that has sensitive skin, or redness, irritation, burning cheeks, or just likes a cool refreshing face treat, this is the answer. I never leave home without it, and it's really helped me with my bad skin days.
Sj from Sacramento
I'm a person of science. I know they said there is science behind this water but I still thought it was a gimmick. Everyone says their products are backed by science. Yes you need water but it doesn't cure things. Bought it anyways because I love the face wash so much.
Ok, tell me why all my redness and inflammation in my face after using this once when I have been going to the dermatologist for years for acne, redness and inflammation? Why is my skin suddenly magically cleared and even toned after using this? I started using this after workouts. Why does the redness post workout suddenly look like it was never there?
My nephew came over today. He is small and I have a small puppy he loves to play with. He put his face in my dogs belly (kids, right?) and my dog scratched his face thinking his hair was a toy. Not a bad scratch, just a red mark. Worried my sister would be upset and he wouldn't be allowed to come over anymore, I washed his face. Still red. Decided I would spray his face with this. Couple minutes later, what scratch? Not a trace.
What magic is in this product?????
Proved skeptic wrong
Lulu from Phoenix AZ
I bought this product in preparation for winter because my skin gets patches of dried irritated and flaky skin. When I got home my dad was walking in the door and I noticed a BIG red rash on his arm. I caught him off guard and sprayed this water on it. He started complaining that I always bother him with skincare products lol. A day later he comes into my room again asking for some more because apparently he had been applying cortisone cream on the rash for weeks and it was not going away but he showed me his rash after ONE spray of this thermal water and OH-MY!!! The redness was gone, the inflammation was gone and the flakyness was gone!!! If you suffer from sudden skin rashes like my family does go and get this. It's just amazing. Needless to say my dad is a believer now and I will be taking him to ulta to purchase him a bottle of his own 🤪.
Drink of Water!
Mari from Berkshires, Massachusetts
This feels so luxurious! Anytime I use it (after a shower, before my lotion, or just randomly throughout the day) it feels like a much need drink of clean water for my face. It evaporates though and you do need a lotion still.
Lex from Paso Robles, CA
Okay, I won't lie: when I first got this product as a sample I was skeptical because I was like "thermal water? this is obviously a gimmick." but I will fully admit I was super duper wrong. I've been struggling with perioral dermatitis for several years now and it's an annoyingly persistent condition that isn't cute. Ever since I started using this after cleansing, my skin has cleared up 85% and is so much brighter. It helps my skin stay moisturized but doesn't go overboard. If you have any kind of skin condition, I HIGHLY recommend this stuff.

First time trying this and is amazing I love it. I will definitely continue purchasing this product.
Seriously sensitive and blemish prone skin

I use this to moisten my face before applying cleanser. I have noticed my skin is calmer by doing this. I like the sprayer mechanism. The large size lasts me a few months of liberal use twice a day
Worth to buy

So many great uses... I always spritz before applying any moisturizer. So comforting after procedures. A summer comfort must have too.
it really does work
after tan burn from Iron Mountain, Michigan
I just went tanning and I am really pasty, so I got burnt. I at first didn't think I was that red but then I got home and I was like OH NO!
I of course put lotion after wards. Well nothing was working and then I remembered I got this thermal spring water spray in a FitFAbFun box and I used it. I was so impressed! The redness went away and the stinging effect I had too because of the tanning activator I used before hand. I am so impressed I downloaded the Ulta app to buy the spray because I'm trying to level out my skin tone so I don't burn when I visit Florida to see my family.
sorry not sorry for the long review but I needed to fully express what happened for me to go back and buy this product.
This is top rated by derms for a reason
Angela1972 from Kentucky
This spray is a life saver for those with dry, sensitive skin. It is Especially effective for eczema and psoriasis and is highly recommended by dermatologists. I have used this for ten years after I had a bad reaction to strong antibiotics due to a blood infection. My skin was burning, itchy and scabbed over. This spray was recommended by a plastic surgeons office as first line of treatment. And I still use this first before I apply any other product to my face or body.
Word of caution, do not shake the can because it will stop working

I absolutely recommend to use this product I would definitely buy again

This has helped tremendously in calming my very face. I use it in between steps and as needed throughout they day.
Use this everyday
Kate from NY
I use this every single day after washing my face. Ny daughter calls it "magic water". It really does help calm and soothe my face. Watch their live videos on Facebook about it if you want to learn more. Dermatologists rave about it. I started using it after I was getting my face lasered to review some small red marks that developed during my pregnancies. I've been using it for five years and recommend it to everyone.
Super nice, but not the price

I got this product in a fab fit fun box a few months ago. Its nice, but no different then the Evian spray ypu can find at Tj's or Marshall's for way less!!
