I thought Avene water was just water, normal hot spring water, but my friend who's a beautician said that they use Avene water oversees to treat eczema and stuff, and that it's effective against rough skin and dryness and so on. Like, how it has a calming effect on the skin, and how it's recommended for people with rough or irritated skin. I happen to have those skin problems, so I decided to get it. So, she recommended not spraying it directly on my face, but instead soaking a tissue or something and leaving it on the fact like a mask for a couple minutes, and I think that really makes the difference. One thing though: there are a lot of foreign-made ones that are cheaper, but the label and everything is in English, and even though it's just under 1,000 yen (about $10?), there's a big difference in the effectiveness. The Japanese-made version is filtered so many times, and it's heat treated in a way that helps it work better, faster. I'd take this to a desert island with me!
