I am a child of the winter. There, I said it, I don't like summer! Give me snow, hats and a massive woolly coat over this heatwave and insect ridden season any day of the week. I've been really struggling to cope with the heat of late and it wasn't until I remembered having a few bottles of La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water stockpiled from when I went to Munich last year, and after seeing a few reviews about it that I thought I'd give it a go.
Now I've read a lot of reviews about this, all of them have been glorious and if I'm honest...I really don't see why. With the constant humid-to-air-con changes I've had from working in an office, my skin's been feeling really tight and constantly not quite as clean as it should be from what seems like a constant sweaty forehead the minute I get into the sun. Teamed with going to the gym on a nightly basis, my face has been suffering from just being too damn hot.
It's marketed as a moisturiser of sorts, to add a shot of instant hydration either on it's own or through a layer of makeup, so for the past week or so after putting the can in the fridge for when my skin has begun to feel hot and uncomfortable, and I have been attempting to perk it up with an ice cold spritz of this...to absolutely no avail whatsoever. Formula-wise the spray contains natural anti-oxidants which not only calm the skin, but also soothes and softens, to de-congest the skin and prevent premature ageing of the skin, but in practise all it does it cool you down for a fraction of a second until it warms up and just leaves you feeling even more...moist (I hate that word).
So if you're warm in this weather, the only logical thing I can suggest is emptying out the freezer, chucking away all that frozen veg you have no intentions of eating and climbing into it, preferably eating ice cream as you do so. Or, if you're adamant on spending £7.50 on a 150ml bottle of this from Boots, I suggest you spray it on your face and stand as close to a fan as you can get, for it's the only way you'll get any noticeable benefit from it. Or drink it, either one will do.
What do you think of the thermal spring water trend, yay or nay? Sorry LRP, but I'm over it.
