Avène Eau Thermale XeraCalm A.D Range

Hi guys ! Happy Monday . Hope you had a nice weekend spoiling mom ... or just chilling. It's such a cold rainy morning today in Johannesburg that I'm glad I have Mondays off - so I can chill with a big mug of coffee and a blanket. 

A few weeks ago I was browsing around in Dischem checking out some of the Avene range. My son Alex has been struggling with some texture on his skin and I wanted to check some options to try. Overall he does have pretty good skin - but the sides of his cheeks gets extremely bad texture that gets itchy if it's too hot or too cold . I decided to pick up this pretty nifty set I spotted as it included a free Cicalfate and little Thermal Spring Water (which I already know works wonders on him ) to give a go. 





The set retails for R550 and 
includes :
Avene Cicalfate Cream 40 ml
Avene XeraCalm Lipid Replenish Cleansing Oil 400 ml
Avene XeraCalm Lipid Replenishing Balm 200 ml
Avene Thermal Spring Water 50 ml 











A little bit more on the products included :

Avene Cicalfate Cream 40 ml
This is a great cream for sensitive and irritated skin as it soothes skin. This is especially great if the skin has been scratched too. (And it works great on any dry skin areas too!).This is a richer balmy texture so we only use this once a week especially after I know he did a lot of sports at school or had a school function and I know his skin needs a boost ) 

Avene XeraCalm Lipid Cleansing Oil 400 ml
This is one of the stars of this range. The XeraCalm A.D Lipid Replenishing Cleansing Oil is specifically formulated to cleanse dry sensitive skin. You can also use this in a bathtub by pumping a few pumps into your hand and mixing it into the bath water. Alex uses this as a face wash and on his arms that gets some extreme dryness too . I have to be honest on some days were my skin is extremely sensitive too I steal a pump too to wash my face at night time ) . This has truly made such a huge difference ! His skin doesn't feel dried out after using this wash. 

Avene XeraCalm Lipid Replenishing Balm 200 ml
I love this balm. The XeraCalm A.D Lipid Replenishing Balm is formulated for moderate to severe itchy skin . We use this as a cream for his face and arms . I love how the product stays sterile as the pump only pumps out the product needed and can't be placed back into the container. This was another life saver. Within a day or two Alex's texture on his cheeks were basically completely gone. I really can't recommend this range enough. 

Avene Thermal Spring Water 50 ml 
I've done a full review HERE and it's been mentioned in countless favourites and empties posts. This is a great product in our household. I buy the huge bottle now , but this small one is perfect to pop into a work bag or sport bag. This little container has a permanent space in my mommy sport bag - as it's perfect to spray on his face after his tennis practise to cool him off as well as hydrate his skin after being in the sun. 


Overall we have been using this range on him for just over two months - and while it might seem like a pricier option than most kiddies products - his skin is happy with this range . We aren't even halfway through the products as a little really goes a long way - so this containers will last us quite some time. 

Dischem has little Avene sets ( I got myself the Cold Cream Value pack too which retails for R115 ) - with some new goodies I wanted to try and some old favourites ) which makes trying out the range more affordable. 




How  was YOUR weekend ? Do you also suffer from dry irritated skin or used Avene products before ??
