Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Eau Thermale Avene Beauty Workshop For Sensitive Skin


Avene Beauty Workshop 22nd Oct, 2011

The first skincare beauty workshop organized by Avene, Watsons and OnlyBeauty taught participants today all about sensitive skin and how Avene products could help relieve, soothe, repair and protect people with sensitive skin.  The workshop also taught participants how to achieve a radiant complexion from Avene experts. Mr. Damien Tavernier (Avene Asia Pacific Trainer of Pierre Fabre Dermo-Cosmetique) gave a slide presentation and share his knowledge about the different types of sensitive skin which I find useful because I have sensitive skin (the question is to what extend, why and how I can manage it).

The question that attracted many to find out more at this workshop: Did you know that over 20% of adults have sensitive skin? People with sensitive skin are more at risk of developing pigmentation defects as the skin reacts in excessive manner to daily factors. Over time and with combined sun exposure, skin complexion becomes irregular and loses its youthful radiance.

Damien's presentation was informative. Medical terms and statistics was used to show participants that Avene is serious in providing a range of skincare products and advise to sensitive skin users. Just to share a few tips, there's three levels of sensitive skin in general:
  • sensitive skin
  • intolerant skin
  • allergic skin
Avene Sensitive White

All Avene products are dedicated to sensitive skin. However for those suffering intolerant to allergic skin  levels will have to use extremely gentle products (e.g cleanser, skin recovery cream) to protect their skin. What sets Avene apart from other sensitive skincare products is the use of Avene's Thermal Spring Water, a source of calm for sensitive skin thanks to its properties:
  • soothing
  • anti irritant
  • anti inflammatory

Avene Thermal Spring Water is a popular skincare mist product among beauty junkies. I myself have this on standby whenever I travel to soothe my skin from itching due to heat. Others used it in their daily care, either to stay cool, for razor burns, after cleansing, after shaving, diaper rash, to calm down facial redness, itching, sunburn, sensitivity or post surgery use. In this workshop, I learned a new use for Avene Thermal Spring Water! is that you could also use it as a hydration/soothing mask

paper face mask was given, just spray generously on it

put on for 15-20mins, you can even soak 2 cotton pads
to put on eyes as well using the thermal spring water

the mask was the highlight of the workshop

Wani put on hers with such style and poise

this is how you do it baybeh!

Esther done hers so quickly!

Cindy won herself the lucky prize for answering "Mineral Cream"
used in the new sun protection for sensitive skin users

 our lunch was a choice of grilled chicken or seafood
(I picked the later)

entry and dessert, love the soup though!

Overall a fun and educational workshop for those wanting to learn more about Avene and Sensitive Skin. With the introduction to many of its range of products, one can now test, sample and try on the spot to which products is best suited for their skin. Participants who needed help and advise could turn to the skin analysis booth, to check their skin condition and worries. The personalized pampering session (which is the hands on skincare session) was fun, allowing full use and testing of Avene products. With a hearty meal served after the workshop ended, participants could now sit down and mingle with each other to share their thoughts on the products. 

A goodie bag worth RM63 (few trial size products with a thermal spring water spray) along with a RM20 voucher, was given to the participants so they could further explore the Avene skincare products at home. Should they be interested to purchase, the RM20 voucher would come in handy at nearest participating outlets (Watsons).
