I am thinking of getting Avene Thermal water spray in a can to set my MMU.
I have just ordered from Alima.
Very Happy

Does anyone else have any good suggestions please?
Thanks.

Hi, Emma. I've just started using the Avene Thermal water spray with my MMU, as well. I apply all my dry make-up (saving liquid eyeliner and mascara for later), do a final blend with a fluffy brush and then spray my face with Avene. I love how it takes down the "powdery" look, seems to smooth things out and gives me a better idea of finished texture and depth of colour.

It's too early for me to tell if it will be "soothing and anti-irritating" for my sensitive skin over the long term, but is certainly causing no problems at this point. I think you'll find it a fine choice. HTH!

Is it okay to spritz some distilled water to set my makeup? I'm such a newbie! Sad

I use a few different, Evian which is easy to find at ULTA, Burt's Bees complexion mists, there are 4 different ones, they are all great, I have lavender, carrot, and grapefruit, and I also have the Avene Thermal Spray but have not opened it yet.

Thank you.

Poohlisey - I'm sure that would be ok. I've only just got into MMU though so I could be wrong.
Cool

Emma - do you just want to set the MMU or are you finding it too drying? Depending on which, you might go for different sprays.

I've actually found that all of the sprays I've tried have been good for setting MMU. I've used PSF, Jurlique, Evian, Kosmea, Caudalie, etc for setting MMU. At the moment I'm actually using the Phytomer rose toner in an atomizer to do the trick.

If you are finding the MMU too drying then one of the best sprays I've found is the Thalgo Marine Mist. It's a very fine pressurized spray and it is moisturizing to some degree. HTH

Mabsy, can you use all these sprays during the day to help your MMU stay on in hot weather? Thanks!

I usually just spritz after application. The only time I use a spritz during the day is to refresh my skin, but not really to make the MMU last longer. I'm not sure if continual spritzing during the day would actually help the MMU stay on longer, particularly in hot weather but I'd love to find out more about this. Did you read this somewhere?

Btw, IMO one of *the* best spritzes for refreshing your skin during a hot day is the Caudalie Beauty Elxir. It's a fine mist so you don't see drops on your face and it has that lovely minty refreshing feeling that wakes up my skin.

Thank you Mabsy - I have only just ordered my MMU (about an hour ago Very Happy ) and so I don't know if it'll be too drying for me.

The Thalgo one sounds good.

I have also ordered some lumiere MMU samples - excellent value at $8.55 (including postage to Aus). I read somewhere on here that this MMU is very good for dry skin types which mine is.

I just bought a face spritzer bottle from the chemist in the essential oils section and use distilled water. Works good for me. Very Happy

I've been using both Evian spray and Avene spray without any problems. I haven't tried it with anything else, but Mabsy's idea does sound really good.

I just use any kind of teabag from the supermarket, as long as tea is the only ingredient...some green teabags have additives.
I keep it in the fridge but toss it every couple days and make fresh, when I'm making my morning coffee.

Thats awesome. Does it get spoiled fast? I'm going to try this. Very Happy

Even if you keep it in the fridge, it will start to look "cloudy" after a few days. Anyway I figure like most things it's best to use as fresh as possible, so I just make new every 2-3 days or so.

Actually one of the other ladies here gave me the tea spray idea some time back, but I can't remember who it was. Hope you like it Very Happy

The idea does sound very good and I'm definitely gonna give it a try. However, I've noticed that whenever I make tea there's sediment at the bottom anyway. Do you just leave that in a spray bottle anyway? Also, do you dilute the green tea?

Second mabsy. i've used avene and evian to remove the powdery look, both work fine for me. Guess it depends on which brand is easier to purchase.

I *love* the idea of using phytomer rose toner as i have that. i do use rose water purchased from the pharmacy/drugstore here as well.

Thanks Mabsy,
What a great idea to use Phytomer rose toner in an atomizer. I will try that after I finish my Jurlique Rosewater spray.

I've been using dermalogica soothing protection spray -- it came up on another thread, and it works very nicely.

I'm interested in a super fine mist, I may go ahead & try the Caudalie. I particularly want a "cooling" & pleasantly scented (but not overly so) spray, to perk me up. Currently I keep mine in the fridge, but the spray is not as fine as I'd like it to be.
