This one has been sitting in my Drafts for so long that if I don’t post it now, the Limited Edition cans will be gone before you can say “Vichy”! :P
One of my first introductions to Vichy Laboratoires is through their thermal spa water. It is thermal spa water in an aerosol can and it is wonderful for cooling yourself down in this infernal Malaysian heat and humidity. I used to use the big 150ml bottle in place of toner at home. Finished up 2 bottles quite quickly, because I couldn’t stop at one spritz :P
So it interested me mightily to learn that Vichy Laboratoires turns 80 in 2011. 80 years! That’s a heck of a long time to be around! And to celebrate their iconic product – the Eau Thermale Thermal Spa Water they have released a limited edition aerosol can.
The good thing is the price is the same – you just get prettier looking bottles :)
Cute right? :)
I mean, I wouldn’t buy it just for the bottle. But if I were replenishing my face spray, I’d get it. I prefer the smaller can because its easier to tote around and somehow looks nicer.
These days, I travel with a small 50ml bottle especially on trips to neighbouring countries in South East Asia, because there is no better way to cool down in the heat. I was in fact hitting myself over the head (figuratively speaking of course) for not packing the small bottle into my handbag these past few days. It might be raining a storm outside, but where I was cloistered, the air-conditioning was broken, I was bundled up in layers of clothing, it was stifling and hot and my makeup was melting. I could have at least cooled down with this :P
I do still use this thermal spray to set powder makeup some days, and it is a great way to cool down or calm sensitive skin. I don’t know if it actually does anything, but it feels nice :)
Do you use thermal water sprays regularly? Do you have other uses for thermal water sprays to share? I read you can also use this as a mask by moistening a paper mask. I just use it as a toner on hot days, a quick way to freshen up in the middle of the day, and sometimes, to set powder foundation. You?
