I’m still working my way through the first batch of goodies Avene gave me and I’ve made good friends with Eau Thermale Avene mattifying fluid (R239, Dis-chem).
A hydrating but ultra-lightweight fluid, its ideal for peeps like me who’ve got an combination skin and are looking for ways to moisturise without aggravating oilies. Ingredients-wise, it makes use of Avene’s soothing spring water and glycerin to hydrate and includes a calming licorice extract.
As far as mattifying goes, they’re using a particular polymer that’s able to absorb oil without drying your skin while having an ultra-mild primer-like effect. They’ve got the amount just right so there’s no powdery finish or a tightening sensation no matter how much of it you use. This also means it plays nicely with anything I layer on top of it, be it sunscreen or foundation.
I took it with me to the Port Elizabeth to visit my folks over Easter along with a trusty back up hydrator in case it turned out to be a ball of kak but it’s not. It’s awesome. This is something I’ll totally use up as opposed to trial then pass on. High praise from a fussy, product-swamped beauty blogger.

This is such a great post thank you…Can I ask a question off topic, a while ago you posted on Instagram about the launch of the new Ganier sheet masks, any idea when it will be available in stores?
Hi skat! If I remember correctly they’re coming out in August or October but I’m not sure. I’ll ask the PR later today and get back to you when she responds x x
ok great…thank you:)
Me again! I spoke to the PR on Friday and she said it’ll be out in October. Quite the wait but maybe it’ll be worth it. I haven’t been given one to try yet but when I do I’ll be sure to create a review.
