Avene Gentle Toner Review
As someone who suffers from dry skin I just had to post about this product. It has left my skin feeling amazing! I usually chop and change my skincare from time to time as I like to try different things, recently I have been using Dermalogica, and No 7 from boots as well as Bioderma to remove my eye make up. (See? A real mixture) so in that spirit of trying new things after the girls at Pixiwoo recommended this I thought I would try it out. I have walked past this in Boots before as it's normally sat on the bottom shelf and the packaging isn't exactly attention grabbing, but it's what's inside the bottle that counts! Avene is a skincare range for sensitive skin primarily, but caters to all types of sensitive skin, be it dry, normal or combination, including those who suffer from redness. It contains Thermal Spring Water sourced in Southern France and it's apparently this, which is clear, close to PH neutral, a low mineral content and contains silica, which contains a light film to soothe and protect the skin and is paraben free.
It made my skin feel really fresh and clean when used in conjuction with the cleanser, but in no way did my skin feel tight as it can do often when I use toners. I absolutely love this and the cleanser which I posted about earlier here.

 The properties of the thermal spring water make it soothing and give it it's anti-irritant qualities. All very research based on the brands part, but I can say that the product felt smooth, rich and silky on my skin when applied. It had a pleasant smell, and the packaging meant I didn't use more than I needed. It removed the residue of the cleanser and the last of the dirt from my face but didn't feel like it was stripping my skin of anything. Which I thought was amazing. I'm very impressed with this and can't believe I haven't tried it before! It is priced at £11.50 and is available at Boots stores. If you have dry/sensitive/irritated skin, give it a try, my skin now feels soft and smooth, which is not something I can often say after removing all my make up. Brilliant!
