Eau Thermale Avène – Thermal Spring Water & Physiolift Yeux-Eyes Reviews

Eau Thermale Avène Products

Hi Beauties, it feels so good to be back with you on the blog after a really long time. 2017 has been a really challenging year for me since the start but there is always light at the end of the tunnel. I am hopeful that this year is going to bring many changes in my life, as I have been working on a new venture which I am really excited about. While procrastination is my biggest downfall – I am working on it really hard to accomplish more this year. With that being said, let’s jump right into it and get started with a brand that I have been raving about non stop to all my friends and family – Eau Thermale Avène.

If you have been following me on social media, then you would have read about Eau Thermale Avène – a brand from France that has hit South African shores for a while now and recently launched at Dischem Pharmacies, throughout the country. While I have been aware of this brand for quite some time now, I recently decided to stop being skeptical and give this a try. Basically here’s what happened – in the last 3 months I have been suffering with insomnia and you can imagine what an impact that had on my eyes – dark circles, sunken under eyes and not to mention noticeable wrinkles….OMG! Yes, I was freaking out and I needed a product that was the best in the market to target my problems all at once – to my surprise, I came across the product I was looking for on Instagram….Yippeee! Call it fate or pure coincidence but this product just won the Elle Beauty Awards for 2017, making my decision even easier. Obviously, I went on Google and researched this product – read review after review to make sure that this product was the best and what I needed.


Physiolift Yeux – Eyes Cream

Avène Physiolift Yeux - Eyes Cream

Eau Thermale Avène PhysioLift Eyes smoothes wrinkles and firms the delicate skin around the eye area whilst helping to diminish puffiness and dark circles.

I purchased this product at Dischem for R370 and started using it the same day as I was desperate to see results. I remember waking up the next morning and I looked into the mirror and was shocked to see that my hollow under eyes were slightly plumped out….seriously! I didn’t want to get too excited just yet, so I gave it a few days and kept monitoring my results, but as you know it is always difficult to see major results in one’s self, so I had to wait and see if the people around me noticed any differences. To my astonishment, my sister was visiting just 3 days later and she asked me why my under eyes were looking plumped out…..Unbelievable…..Yesss! I was already jumping for joy that this eye cream had such an amazing result in such a short amount of time and I was hopeful that this was going to work for me.

I always believe in giving any product a fair amount of time to see the desired results that I am looking for as some products do take longer than others to see a difference. I was lucky that the PhysioLift eye cream worked so rapidly in giving me results but I needed to continue to use it to get rid of my dark circles and fine lines. On the 6th day I was picking up the kids from school when my friend approached me and asked what I was using under my eyes as they were looking much better than before….can you imagine how thrilled I was feeling now? I knew that I had found my dream eye cream. While I have noticed the under eye plumping up, there hasn’t been a drastic change with the dark circles and fine lines as yet but I am still in love with this cream.

The key ingredients in PhysioLift eye cream is Hyaluronic acid (hydrates); Retinaldehyde (a nonirritating form of vitamin A); and Brown-algae extract (replenishes collagen). I have recommended this product to many people in the last week because I truly believe that this product works and is the best eye cream I have ever used. It is a smooth textured cream that absorbs well into the skin and doesn’t give any irritation – especially since I have sensitive skin. If you suffering with similar problems with you eyes then I highly recommend you get the PhysioLift eye cream as you are guaranteed to get the results you want.


Thermal Spring Water

Avène Thermal Spring Water

Originating as pure rain mixed with sea-spray rich in mineral salts, Avène Thermal Spring Water makes its 50-year journey through the Cévennes Mountains in Avène, France. This Thermal Spring Water is a hypoallergenic water that provides instant relief for sensitive skin. This spray has soothing, anti-irritant properties and is suitable for use when removing make-up, after shaving, to treat a diaper rash or even as a make-up setting spray.

I purchased this product from Dischem for R139,95 and was blown away with how soothing this was on my sensitive skin. I had a few bumps on my face which were red so I sprayed the thermal water and within a few minutes my face was cleared up….Wow! I also used it for irritation after shaving and as a make-up setting spray and it worked wonders. This water is definitely a must keep product at all times, especially if you have sensitive skin like myself. I used this on my kids as well and it clears up any irritation on the skin in a short time. It leaves your skin feeling so refreshed that I use it every day just to keep hydrated and to keep my skin clear of any lumps or bumps.

I was very lucky when I purchased these products from Dischem, as they were having a promotion – if you purchased 2 products then you receive a free gift. The gift consists of the following items: A Luxury Toiletry Bag, Thermal spring water (50ml), Cleansing foam (50ml), sample of the Hydrance optimale hydrating serum and Gentle eye make-up remover. I have used the cleansing foam and the eye make-up remover and it works really well for my sensitive skin. I high recommend this brand to those of you who have similar problems as I do or want clearer skin – it is guaranteed to make a difference.
