What You Need To Know:
Aqua Gel by Avene creates an instant cooling effect as you apply it; as it sinks in, it deeply hydrates your skin using an innovative cohederm hydrating complex. This impressive bit of tech creates micro-reservoirs of water in your skin, creating hydration for up to 24 hours, so your skin is optimally hydrated and plumped up. Your skin is also protected against free radicals, like pollution, which you can put down to the antioxidant action of provitamin E. What’s more, the 90% natural gel works to brighten your complexion using myrtle extract, while shine and pore-size are reduced using cucurbita pepo.
As with all Avene skincare, Aqua Gel also features their iconic Thermal Spring Water, which helps to soothe and rebalance your complexion, thanks to its naturally occurring mineral properties.
Why It’s Escentual:
The award-winning Aqua Gel moisturiser offers all in one care for all types of dehydrated skin that’s struggling with sensitivity, tightness, roughness and discomfort. The best way we can describe Avene Aqua Gel is by calling it ‘a glass of water for your skin’; it feels ultra-cooling and really fresh as soon as you apply it. Its plumping formula cocoons your complexion in a dewy veil of hydration - and, even though it mattifies your skin, it still ensures that your skin maintains a healthy, shine-free radiance.
The purifying gel is stored inside an easy-to-use pot, so you can easily access the gel - and it also comes with a spatula, so you can dispense the formula hygienically, too.
The Best Way To Use It:
Use once daily. Apply in the morning to your face, neck and eye area. To use it as a hydrating overnight mask, apply a thick layer before bed and leave on all night. Take care to avoid direct contact with the eyes.
The Sustainable Side:
Held in a recyclable plastic tub within a recyclable cardboard box, the Avene Hydrance Aqua Gel has been produced in a factory that’s certified for the environment.
