Prefer oils to lotions? Try Avène Body Oil for equally hydrating benefits.

Avène

Birchbox Breakdown

When it comes to body lotions, is it too much to ask for a formula that isn’t overly greasy or too strongly scented? Avène doesn’t think so. This luxe, intensely emollient lotion is rich, but nongreasy, fragranced, but delicately so, and most importantly, it delivers long-lasting hydration year-round. The smooth texture penetrates dry, flaky skin to restore suppleness while also infusing it with nourishing ingredients. The result is healthy, happy skin from head to toe.

How it Works

An Allure Best of Beauty 2013 winner, this ultragentle, paraben-free cold cream lotion features Avène’s signature Thermal Spring Water to soften and soothe, as well as a luscious blend of safflower, cocoa, sesame and allantoin oils to nourish and moisturize skin.

Apply all over body after cleansing—or whenever your skin is in need of some deep hydration.

lovely mild scented and intense moisturizing lotion

I was very lucky to get a sample of this product in a local pharmacy not too long ago. I Immediately new it was a right product for me. Lotion is very moisturizing but not greasy and the scent is mild unlike most other cold cream products that tend to smell like old fashioned shaving creams, this scent is more feminine and yet blends in with the skin as a barely there but clean neutral scent. I use it as a lotion, make up remover, massaging lotion, or simply cover your face with a thick layer as a 10 minute mask, super moisturizer. I recommended it for all the time and any time, and all over the body. A must have.

This is a great hydrating everyday lotion. It also has a clean botanical scent that I enjoyed. I liked the texture of the lotion, as well. It was just right, not too thick or thin. It isn't greasy either. My entire family liked this purchase.
