Avène Body Oil

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.

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 body oil
Purchased

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.

Better than lotion
Purchased

This smells great and makes my skin feel really smooth. If you use too much it feels a little oily at first, but then soaks in to keep you moisturized.

Luxurious
Purchased

This oil rocks. I've long been a fan of oil rather than cream to moisturize my skin and this one is the perfect consistency -- not to thick, and absorbs into your skin quickly so that you can get dressed without ruining your clothes.

Nice oil
Purchased

Oil is nice and rubs in relatively well. It is a little thigh and doesn't spray evenly, but u get used to it. Smell is nice, not overwhelming

Nice smell, not heavy
Purchased

I like this product as a post-shower "I'm in a hurry" moisturizer. It has a nice smell and doesn't leave a residue, so I can get dressed immediately after applying.

Love the scent
Purchased

Not so thrilled about the mineral oil, but emulsifies great and makes my skin soft. A bit greasy on its own, though, best to apply to wet/damp skin.

Would definitely re-purchase

I love this product. My only suggestion is that it should be a spray instead of the current way the oil is dispensed. It would be easier to apply.

I like it...
Purchased

I was a little hesitant to try an oil, as my skin isn't typically overly dry. Now that it's getting warm here in Texas, I wanted to make sure I had something in stock to keep the summer heat from drying out my skin. I love this stuff. It's an oil, so yes it makes your skin feel a little oily for until it soaks in. I use it at night to avoid walking around looking slick for a while, and always wake up with the softest skin. I've only been using it for a few days and I've already gotten compliments on how my skin feels from others :)

Smells great!

Smells great and feels great - definitely on my list of to buy products. You have to apply just the right amount though or it will feel greasy.
