Bloggers were invited to attend an intimate event of Avène. I confirmed my attendance immediately because the venue was in CBD. It's just walking distance from where I was coming from.
I've heard of Avène before but I've never really tried the product long enough to see if it worked for me. It was a complimentary mist from one of the hotels I've stayed in abroad.
Eau Thermale Avène is a French derma cosmetic brand that aims to improves our skin by using "healing water" in all of their products. The brand is named after a village in France where Sainte Odile Spring is located. The spring was said to be a healing water because of a horse whose skin allergy was cured by bathing and drinking the water of Saint Odile Spring. A science lad was built o continuously study about water and its healing properties. There is also a hydrotherapy centre in Avène, France that caters to thousands of patients with severe skin disease.

I got to Tower Club early and I was able to try some of their products. But first, let me take ambush product shots.
The ever famous product of Avène.
I actually thought this was their only product.
They have an anti-agin line. Awesome sauce!
They have a micellar solution! Look on the first bottle on the left!
It wasn't disclosed how much it is (and I think it's a new product) but I want
to get my hands on this product to compare with Bioderma!
Okay, I don't want to sound like I'm bragging but this made my night!
They have this Skin Diagnosis app and they tried this on my skin.
They said I have very clear and fine skin with almost no signs of aging.
And this is kind of rare cos at my age, my skin should have more lines that it has now!

Second photo is the skin of my face (with Shiseido UV Protection Foundation)
Third photo is a zoomed-in photo of my nose. Hello black heads!
Fourth photo is a photo of either my cheek or jawbone.
Their latest product - sun care line
Tinted Sunscreen. Mm-hmm.
It only comes in one color. It looks a bit too orange but it perfectly blends
and dries like a dream.
See, well blended. It's as if you have nothing on. Dries matte, too!

Last night was fun cos I also got to hang out with the other bloggers-turned-friends and it's always nice to talk about makeup and anything under the sun!
