|How to Use La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water' and 'Vichy Thermal Spa Water' for Sensitive Skin|
In spite of the fact that they were tempting me to a great extent, I always avoided buying the thermal water face mists. What if they are just canned water in a fancy bottle? What can just a spray of water does for my skin? I was trying to know more about them, and they tempted me even more.
La Roche Posay Thermal Spring Water (Rs 550 for 50g) is the what every product of LRP contains - the thermal spring water that contains mineral salts and trace elements. The water is naturally rich in Selenium, which is a powerful natural antioxidant.
Vichy Thermal Spa Water (Rs 650 for 150g) contains water with 15 beneficial minerals and antioxidants.
Both of the French pharmacy skincare products comes in metal cans, and dispenses in fine mist form which is far more refreshing than most faces spray I have tried. For even better effect, put them in the refrigerator. They are highly refreshing when cold. Both are pure products with zero chemicals or any other nasty ingredients. They contain no fragrance or irritants. They are suitable for sensitive skin and allergy tested.
That said and done, the question remains - Why do I need water in a can just because it contains some minerals?
The answer lies in how I used both of them and the benefits I reaped from them.
- As I have sensitive skin which equally hate cold winds and harsh sunlight (read: burning redness around cheeks almost year round), I like to keep wipes with me all the time. Whenever I feel any irritation, I press the wet wipes on my cheeks for relief. Sometimes I even use rose water. Now, I use the face mist. They are soothing with their fine mist and equally refreshing as rose water.
- They come in handy travel sizes so, can be used easily on the go.
- I also used it before applying foundation. Makes it easy to apply and blend.
- After cleansing my face and removing all my makeup, I like to spray the thermal water on my skin and let it rest before locking it in with facial oil. Result: soft and supple skin.
- You can even use it after using face scrubs. Ahhhh...bliss.
- To make it last longer, I used it to mix my powdered face packs or dilute the thick face masks. Also, when the face mask is about to dry, a spray it on my face, it makes the face pack wet and work for 'long' on my face.
- For someone whose bread and butter comes from staying hours in front of the computer, thermal water mists is a blessing. I can directly apply it directly onto my eyes because A. It is pure water and can do no hard. B. It comes out as a fine mist and not spray so, cannot hurt my eyes.

Overall: For the multiple benefits it has for sensitive skin, it is a must have. If you are apprehensive about it (because no one wishes to be duped by a can of water), then go for the travel size option. You get more value for money in the bigger sizes but travelling with them can be an issue. I have reserved the La Roche Posay for travelling and going out while the Vichy one for at-home usage and resides happily in my fridge with Ananda In The Himalaya Aloe Gel and Good Earth Rose Water.
