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.

Great body oil yet don't love the smell
Purchased

I really like this body oil yet wish it came in other fragrances. While the oil is great right out of the shower on dry skin providing deep moisture the smells is strong. I shower in the evening so by morning the fragrance has faded. I have been using this in place of lotion the past few weeks and it has kept my fading summer skin glowing and soft.

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 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.
