MY EXPERIENCE:

To be honest i was a bit skeptic of this product. I heard many people raved about this product and i also heard some people that didn't find this product any more special than your normal water from your own tap. The day when i have received my sample it was a warm sunny day in Cape Town and i thought to myself what better way than to test this baby out! 

I'm a type of person that can't stand a temperature that are hot, since i would burn very quickly and turn red so quick. So i grabbed my canister and used it as instructed.  How did i feel - honestly? Weird - i mean i've never sprayed water in my face! The times when i was so red from the sun or felt very warm i would usually just take a washcloth and make it wet and damp my face with it, but now that i have this baby at my disposal i have used it many times! Jip, I felt so relived that my face was calming down just after the first spray. 

The one day i was so sick and had a high fever and i just took my Avène Thermale Spring Water and sprayed on my face a few times and it made me feel calmer and my temperature begin to lower. 

I have also used it on my nephew, when he visited us the weekend and he loves to be busy all the time (loves sport, he can't sit still for a few minutes always on the go) and i could see he was really exhausted and flushed and he wasn't too keen that i spray this on him at all. The same was the case with his Mother she was all red in the face. I sprayed her and she felt a bit weird, but later on she told me it felt quite good. 

So i would totally keep this baby in my handbag when i go out during this Summer, when i'm at home i would store it in the fridge for that extra coolness.   

It's a Summer essential product for me!

  3. I used a similar product a while back and felt kinda dumb spraying straight water on my face, but it's definitely refreshing in the warm months. I like spraying it on my feet!
