The classic Eau Thermale Avène, that we all know and love, has launched a brand-new skin care product! Introducing the new Eau Thermale Avène YsthéAL Intense, a solution designed to improve the quality of your skin and a quick and safer way to get the same results as a chemical-peel, in the comfort of your own home. I was invited to join the conversation and given these samples to try at home, and take part in the experience.
I’m lucky, I know. I have been blessed with great skin. But, I also eat a very balanced diet which includes loads of fruit and veggies and very little processed foods. I strongly believe that what we put in our bodies, comes through our skin, hair and nails. Considering how many products I test, and how much makeup I wear, I cannot take my skin for granted. When I received the Eau Thermale Avène YsthéAL Intense, I wondered if it would be too harsh for my skin and if I even needed it at all.
Eau Thermale Avène YsthéAL Intense promises to smoothen wrinkles and fine lines and visibly improve the quality and brightness of your skin. It refines the texture of skin and evens out complexion as well. Although I may not have wrinkles, I do have tiny lines on my forehead and neck that I could easily part ways with.
The cream contains highly concentrated active ingredients:
– Retinaldehyde: a benchmark anti-aging active ingredient, with anti-wrinkle efficacy clinically proven under dermatological control, boosts cellular activity in the skin.
– G.G.O.: Boosts the efficacy of Retinaldehyde for increased anti-wrinkle action and protects the skin’s elastin, restoring firmness and elasticity
– Pre-tocopheryl: a powerful antioxidant agent that forms a protective shield against the harmful effects of free radicals.
– Avène Thermal Spring Water: soothing and anti-irritant, comforts your skin instantly.
How to use Eau Thermale Avène YsthéAL Intense
I always like to show my readers what the product looks like up close. This cream is quite thick with a yellow tinge to it. I applied a nickel-size (2 pumps) all over my face and it felt great. It was very rich and moisturizing. It had a slight cool tingling sensation after a few minutes, but it was very gentle and very subtle. I then sprayed my face with the Eau Thermal. I did not have any reactions or redness to the face and my face feels and looks great this morning. I look forward to including this in my routine and help get rid of SOME of my laugh lines… not all 😉
