It has been a while since my last surprise from HiShop Malaysia. Guess what’s inside the box this round? If you do not already know, HiShop is an online shopping platform for a wide variety of beauty products.
Today’s review is all about URIAGE Eau Thermale, a French brand which is famed for its Uriage Thermal Water. It is certainly a powerful ingredient that passes through the depths of French Alps and is enriched with trace elements and minerals. The high mineral concentrations in Uriage Thermal Water becomes “perfectly balanced” for the skin and is able to soothe, hydrate and protect skin well.
The unique water also restores the skin barrier, allowing more effective protection against external aggressions while maintaining the skin’s hydration. Therefore, it is widely used as the main ingredient of all URIAGE products!
URIAGE Thermal Micellar Water (100ml)
In the Uriage 3-step travel pack, we have 3 essential products for cleansing and soothing the skin. So firstly I begin my skincare regime with makeup removal using the Thermal Micellar Water. It is something great for those who are lazy to remove makeup after a long day out, because no rinsing is required after using this gentle thermal water to remove makeup and cleanse face and eyes.
What are actually inside the Uriage Thermal Micellar Water? At the heart of the formulas, there are 2 things:1. Micelles:
❤ Trap makeup
❤ Cleanse skin
2. Uriage Thermal Water:
❤ Reinforce the cutaneous barrier
❤ Hydrate intensely
❤ Protect skin
❤ Soothe sensations of tightness
How to Use: Soak product with cotton pad and gently wipe over
the face, eyes and neck to cleanse in a single step, without rinsing.
Tips: Complete the eye make-up removal with the Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover.
Uriage Thermal Micellar Water is currently available in 3 kinds to cater for different skin types:
1. Thermal Micellar Water - Combination to Oily Skin
2. Thermal Micellar Water PNS - Normal to Dry Skin
3. Thermal Micellar Water PSR - Skin prone to redness
As my skin is generally sensitive, I opt for the 3rd variant that works well on my skin. To be honest, I am happy that it actually does a great job in removing all traces of my foundation makeup, leaving the skin perfectly cleansed. This product makes me believe that only fresh and clean complexion radiates with health. It feels like water on the skin, so soothing and effective in removing impurities.
I find it so easy to use Uriage Thermal Micellar Water in my daily facial hygiene routine.
If you can’t stand the stickiness of oil / gel based remover, this is a great option to go for.
URIAGE Creme Lavante (Cleansing Cream) (50ml)
After removing makeup, the next step is of course cleansing. For my sensitive skin type, I always opt for something milder (less oily) and preferably not drying to the skin. URIAGE cleanser is more of anourishing and cleansing cream which is mainly made of the signature Uriage Thermal Water.
How to Use: Lather well on damp skin and then rinse, during both day and night.
As it has a gentle soap-free cleansing base, I find that the cleanser does not lather much (even when I use it with a facial foaming net). Alternatively, you can apply the cleansing cream directly onto wet face.
Nevertheless, it helps to cleanse deeply into the pores without feeling dry on the skin.
URIAGE Thermal Water (50ml)
After cleansing, just tone and hydrate your face with sprays of Uriage Thermal Water over the face and leave it to act – No need to pat dry. Finally, just apply your usual skincare products to achieve the smooth, fresh complexion everyday.
As it is purely made of 100% Aqua and Uriage Thermal Water, it can work wonders on the skin in several ways, be it as a dermo-cosmetic treatment or as a daily skincare treatment:
❤ Soothe irritation, nappy rash, sunburn, redness
❤ Repair damaged skin and soothe skin after dermo-aesthetic procedures
❤ Soothe and relieve dermatitis of the eyelids
Some of the more common uses include:
❤ Ease makeup removal and soothe the skin
❤ Fix makeup
❤ Protect skin against free radicals
❤ Instant soothing after hair removal, shaving, spots, travelling, etc
How to Use: Spray on as often as you feel the need to. Leave it on to act.
You don’t need to dry or wipe off the thermal water to boost the penetration of the active ingredients, as it will penetrate into the skin on its own. As for me, I would bring it along each time I go travelling as it is a great skin hydrator while on the go.
