I am back reviewing the [La Roche-Posay] Thermal Spring Water face mist.
If you don’t know much about face mists and you are wondering what they are used for, or why you would need to incorporate one in your routine, I suggest to read my previous post in Mist 101 to get a little bit more information and learn how to use this skin care item.
Now back to the review and what I think about the [La Roche-Posay] Thermal Spring Water.
[La Roche-Posay] Thermal Spring Water, is a facial mist made 100% of thermal water. Since it is made of purely water, it will probably be a bit different from most of the mists you can find on the market.
Since you are only applying light minerals to the skin, this mist won’t have some of the more glamorous functions that some other mists do, but it will be perfect for sensitive skin types, to keep irritation at bay and carrying out the basic functions that mists are supposed to do, like rehydrate, remineralize, cool down and protect the skin but also keep it clean of small particles and residues.
What should it be used for?
Being only thermal water, you don´t have to be worried about your skin reacting to it or being too much when applied with other products, reason why you can apply it any time your skin is at its weakest or exposed to harsh conditions, without having to think twice about the consequences. It is basically as harmless as splashing water onto your skin, but instead of regular full of chlorine water, that will dry your skin out when drying you will be applying a very expensive and good quality water that will really help hydrate your skin when patting it on.
Here you have a picture of the mineral content and ways to be used.
When is it better to use a thermal water spray rather than a regular mist?
Basically when we want to keep our skin neutral, cooled down or when our skin needs a quick rinse.
To give you an example, I always have a thermal spray on my fridge and I use it any time I need to cool down the temperature of my skin, whenever I need to thin out a product, or when I am out an about in places like the pool or the beach and I want to refresh and clean my skin from residue, specially prior to applying other products like sunblock.
What do I think about it?
As I said before, it is a great product that gives you pretty good results with minimum ingredients and no irritation. I highly recommend to keep it in a cool place like the fridge since it will help preserve the product and give an extra cooling effect. It is kind of on a mid-pricey side if you only think about it as water, but it is actually great for the skin and it lasts a very long time.
If you are interested to try out this product, it retails for about 12 € the 150 ml bottle and you can buy it in pharmacies or regular drugstores.
You can’t take it with you on the plane.
I would give it a 4.5/5 stars in overall performance, price vs quality, and product in general.
Would I repurchase?
A big YES, to be honest I always have back ups for this product.
That was all for today, have a wonderful Monday loves.
