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.

I like it...

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.

I love this oil. It's perfect for my dry skin during the New York winter. I only wish the scent was nicer.

Great Oil
Purchased

I'm big on body oil. I oil myself up everynight before bed. I like this one, but I'm not crazy about the scent. This does as good as most body oils though. Leaves me nice and slick!

Nice way to keep skin hydrated
Purchased

I use the oil about two to three times a week and I love the way it makes my skin feel. Not too heavy or greasy.

When I first saw this product it my box...
Sampled

When I first saw this product it my box, I thought, no way would I use this on a regular basis...it must be super greasy. I was infact incorrect-this body oil soaks up into the skin and doesnt leave behind a residue that can sometimes be uncomfortable when using products similar to this, and i must say even hours after applying it i still felt my skin as soft and smooth as I did once my skin soaked up the oil, the sample was also a genourous size, if they had something like this with shimmer, i would deffinetly purchase it especially since the spring and summer months are fast approaching!

Super soft aftereffect

This is a thick product, and it's so much easier to apply than lotion. Put it on right after the shower, and there's no greasiness afterwards. Great smelling, great feeling.

Hydrating

I have scaly dry skin, but I hate applying lotion. I don't like the scent or I feel it doesn't work. I wake up with dry skin again eight hours later, so why bother. However, this oil keeps the powdery dryness away. It absorbs quickly and the scent is not over powering at all. I hardly notice it. To me, it is worth the time to apply because it actually works.

Slick and Shiny
Purchased

I have always had insecurities about my skin and with this body oil, my skin has changed so much. It is smoother than ever and it looks firmer to me. I started using it on my feet and it has made them so much smoother as well. I'm young so I want to keep my skin as hydrated as possible for as long as I can and this product is the aid to that goal.
