Win With Longevity & Avène Skincare

Did you know that Avène Thermal Spring Water originates as rain? However, the 40-year journey through the Cevennes Mountain aquifer that follows, produces thermal spring water ideally suited for the care and management of sensitive skin. It gradually becomes infused with trace elements and silicates, achieving a perfectly-balanced mineral composition ideal for sensitive skin. It soothes, softens, and restores skin’s natural balance.


What is the Eau Thermale Avène signature product and why?

Avène Thermal Spring Water (R149.95 for 150ml). Natural and unique in its composition, this unique ingredient has been recognised for over two centuries for its remarkably soothing and anti-irritating properties. It is also the source of an entire range of products for sensitive, intolerant and allergic skin. This unique active ingredient is contained in all of the products in this range.


What differentiates Eau Thermale Avène from other skincare beauty brands?

Eau Thermale Avène is rooted in dermatology and hydrotherapy,  with over 300 stringent biological, pharmacological and clinical studies conducted proving the soothing and anti-irritating benefits. Even beyond sensitive skin treatment, this hydrotherapy has been used for centuries at the Hydrotherapy Center to address a variety of more severe dermatological conditions such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, ichthyosis and burns.

What does Dermo-Cosmetic mean?

Dermo-Cosmetic products are governed by cosmetics regulations while drawing on the development process specific to medicinal products. For Pierre Fabre (the head of company and creator of the brand), Dermo-Cosmetics products are distinctive, as they reflect their pharmaceutical know-how and are researched, developed and tested with the same rigour and ethics used for medicinal products.


The Eau Thermale Avène brand flows directly from this Dermo-cosmetic culture, expanding on this scientific continuum with unfailing precision, while soothing the most sensitive skin.

At the heart of the brand, Thermal Spring Water, the main active ingredient with unique dermatological properties, has undergone regular basic and clinical studies to shed light on its properties and better protect its purity.

Where can I find this product?

Eau Thermale Avène is available exclusively in selected Clicks stores nationwide. This brings a dermatologically proven skincare range to those who have sensitive skin and skin conditions.

    I would love to win this hamper as it helps with eczema and I get it bad during winter. My skin is so sensitive and gets extremely dry I could really use these products.

    My skin is extremely sensitive and reactive. It is intolerant to many products and develops allergies. I get itchy, raised, red, hot areas on my forearms, chest, or legs, just from touching something that my skin does not like that day. I use the Avene Thermal Spring Water. I spray liberally and the relief comes within minutes. I normally buy the big bottle because it’s far more economical: the small bottle is really too expensive, given that it’s water in a can, collected and not manufactured, but I need it for travelling. Once, the spraying mechanism on the big bottle got stuck and I was unable to use it thereafter. But again, this saves me from very unpleasant skin issues, so I will continue using it. I would love to win the Avene skincare products as they help me tremendously. The Hydrating mask provides intensive soothing care to my dry, dehydrated & overstressed skin. The Thermal Spring waters soothes, softens and restores my skin’s natural balance.
    I have sensitive skin and also cannot handle heavy scented lotions or serums. Avene is the perfect set of ingredients for me as it is not greasy, light, no smell and easily absorbed. The mask helps to improve the appearance of my tired, dull and lackluster skin. My skin is in need of Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic products. I deserve to win the Avene hamper as these are products I need and use on a daily basis

    After a long. hard summer which dehydrates, some pampering would be welcome. Sensitivity is a factor to be considered and these products seem to have every base covered to do well without harshness or harm. It would be a wonderful way to lead into the winter season – with confidence in skin and skin care.

    I have a very gullible skin and as winter and cold days approaches it tends to be a bit dry, and dull mostly dehydrated.

    Find it difficult to try new products but Avene seems like a pure natural infused product, and we all know water gives life
