"This intensely soothing and hydrating formulation is ideal for sensitive skin, or skin that is easily effected by stress, pollution, or irritation. With its high concentration of Avène Thermal Spring Water, the serum works to soothe and heal the skin with each and every application. This soothing sensation has a long-lasting effect thanks to patented lipsomes, which work to diffuse the ingredients gradually into the upper layer of the skin.

Added Glycerine provides deep nourishment, hydration and comfort for the complexion. The silky serum glides on luxuriously, leaving skin feeling supple, smooth and soft."

A while back now, I was kindly sent the Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum* from Escentual. Avene are a brand I had never heard of before so I was quite excited to try something from there range of skincare, as well as serums, which are also a new addition to my skincare routine. Just as a side note, I have normal/combination skin, where I do suffer with some oiliness on my tzone and some redness, so this being ideal for sensitive skin would help my skin a little. 

After using this product for a couple of months now, it is something that has slipped into my skincare routine on a daily basis. I simply use this mainly in the evening, to give my skin an overnight treat, after cleansing/toning and before moisturising. The gel based formula of the serum isn't sticky or greasy and glides on to the skin easily, absorbs quickly and leaves the skin feeling really soft and hydrated.  This serum has definitely helped to sooth any of the the irritated areas of redness that I have on my face, mainly around my nose and cheeks, as well as leaving my face feel plump and moisturised. The packaging looks and feels very luxurious, the frosted glass and pump dispenser make the serum looked a lot more expensive that it actually retails for(RRP-£17). If you have sensitive skin or just skin that needs a boost now and again then I would definitely recommend this serum, it not the cheapest serum on the market, but a little goes a long way and for only £17, I definitely think it is worth parting with the money!

Have you used this serum before? Have you tried any other Avene products? What serums do you use in your skincare routine?
