Sterile Cosmetics Packaging

The packaging is extremely clever. It is completely sterile and no air can get in and out. Why can’t all packaging be like this? The formula is entirely protected without the need for any preservatives or parabens; and this is why it’s able to have such a simple ingredients list.

It feels so good as you apply it. I use it in a thick layer, leave it on for five to ten minutes and it really locks hydration into the skin and really plumps it up. This would be great to use as a quick treatment to prep skin for special occasion makeup or on holiday if your skin is feeling parched and sensitive due to the sun and sea.

Although I don’t have sensitive skin per se, it does become sensitised when I do too much to it. It can feel a little stingy, and go red easily, especially when my hayfever is going wild. This is the gentlest hydrator but super effective. When my skin is well hydrated, it is plumper, bouncier and my pores look tighter. That’s how I want my skin to be!

What’s also good with this is that you can use it as often as you like. You can never be too hydrated right? Because it’s light, it doesn’t overload the skin. Last night I used it as a night mask and my skin is firm, rested and calm today.

The Avene Tolerance Extreme Mask is available HERE now. The regular price is £15, however, it is currently on offer with 25% off.
