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.

Body nourishment in a bottle....
Purchased

I've purchased Avene Body Oil several times. The somewhat woodsy smell isn't for everyone, but in general it's a nourishing body oil that's easy on my sensitive skin.

Effective product, but odor not great
Purchased

I purchased this mainly because of the price, and for the price it is an excellent choice---but the odor is not one I love. I did know the odor was piney before I purchased the p;roduct, so I was prepared. It is smooth and provides a nice touch to wet skin---so it's a good product for the price. Just be aware, the scent is unusual.

Hyrdrating, great smell
Purchased

Some other reviewers mentioned that this scent is not for them, but I love the lightly woodsy/piney smell for winter. The oil is hydrating and absorbent -- perfect for keeping skin soft in drier months.

Very nice for the price!
Purchased

For the amount you get for the price, it can't be beat!! A little bit goes a LONG way, which makes the value even higher. It's also very moisturizing! I really do not like the smell though, which makes it really tough for me to buy this - my favorite thing about body oils is how long the scent stays with you.

Nice and moisturizing
Purchased

I wasn't too crazy about the smell - kind of a old lady smell, but it is very moisturizing. A little bit definitely goes a long way. Great size product for the price.

Good moisturizer
Purchased

I love the fresh woodsy scent to this body oil. I put it on right after I get out of the shower--a little goes a long way, and it keeps my skin soft and moisturized all day without any greasy residue. Great oil for the price.

Best smell ever!

This oil absorbs easily, leaves your skin with a glisteny sheen, and smells absolutely divine, like a walk through an amazing forest.

I adore this body oil. It has a nice light scent and absorbs easily. Also, a little goes a long way so it's a great value. I will be purchasing again for sure.

Not bad
Purchased

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.
