Avène’s classic Thermal Spring Water is a superstar toner.

Avène

Birchbox Breakdown

If you had the chance to rifle through a French woman’s bathroom cabinet, you might be surprised to find this hydrating body oil in lieu of the heavy lotions we favor stateside. But we think you should take a cue from our sisters overseas. This fast-drying formula cures dryness, and it isn’t the least bit greasy. Plus, the clean, woodsy scent has the faintest whiff of pine—no wonder skincare-obsessed Parisians consider it a staple.

How it Works

The rich blend of plant-sourced oils heals even the most stubborn dryness. Infused with Avène’s signature thermal spring waters, it contains minerals to soften and restore skin’s barrier. Vitamins A and E protect skin from free-floating pollutants, while avocado oil provides a natural dose of sun protection.

How to Use

Post-shower, massage a generous amount of the oil into damp skin to help it really absorb.

Not bad

I bought this in hopes it would be like the L'occitance oil but it does not have the same consistency and I wasn't a fan of the smell either.

Love it

I love this body oil. I use it in the shower and it hydrates my skin and makes it soft. I don't have to worry about rinsing it all off because whatever stays on just continues working.

best mositerizer

This is definitely a winter staple. It is the best for dry skin. Its not too heavy and it leaves your skin feeling baby soft. And on top of that it smells heavenly.

never used oil before

I never used oil before for hydration. I love the earthy smell of this and I think it really works on very dry skin. The french are onto something here!

Avene Body Oil

Absolutely LOVE LOVE this body oil. I tend to have dry skin especially through the winter months and Avene Body Oil does the trick. The oil is not to thick and is quickly absorbed into the skin. I usually put it on before drying off in the shower. It makes your glisten and it smells wonderful. Everytime I put it on my husband tells me how he loves the smell. Will be buying this product AGAIN....

Nice body oil

This oil is nice and moisturizing, but a little on the heavy/thick side. The smell is ok, you don't really smell it once it's on.

My favorite body oil

I have been trying to find a good body oil when I read that baby oil is made from petroleum by-products (yuck). So far, Avene has been my favorite because of the way it feels on and hydrates my skin, and the smell. It dries quickly and leaves me very moisturized without feeling greasy. I am buying my second bottle right now.
