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 to Use

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

Everyday light lotion

Avene has such great products. This is no exception. Works well as an every day body lotion. Lightweight enough for summer yet moisturizing enough for dry skin. Great quality, light pleasant scent that does not interfere with your fragrance.

Gave me hives

So I bought this because my love Eva Green swears by this stuff. The smell was very grandmotherly but i tried to deal with it because i spent money for this stuff. Alas, eventually my skin broke out in itchy itchy hives. It is definitly this cream too. No doubt.

I would recommend this to people with dry skin but not sensitive.

I LOVE this lotion. I will admit, the first application (I tried it as soon as I got it!)I was uneasy about the scent of it. It really wasn't my favorite. But using it after a shower with combination of other clean smells (shampoo, hair products, etc) I think its really subtle and very nice. The best part about this lotion, however, is its incredible moisturizing! I have insanely dry skin, to the point that I would have to apply lotion several times a day or my skin would start to visibly dry out. I have always been insecure about how dry my skin was and have tried TONS of lotions. This is the first one that I apply once in the morning and it LASTS! On top of that, it dries nicely and doesn't feel greasy or heavy. No more secretly applying lotion from the small sample size in my purse! I also have very sensitive skin and can't use a lot of heavily scented products, but this one has always been completely fine.

Goes on nice. Smells like cigarettes

I don't know how to feel about this one. On one hand the consistency was what I was looking for, but it really just smelled like cigarette butts to me. Does anyone else get that? It just smelled off.

I am not sure I am going to keep it - may give it away now. Ugh.
