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

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

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...

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!

Love it

This body oil does have a kind of "planty" scent so if that's something that turns you off with Aveda and brands that use a lot of natural extracts, you probably won't like it. I actually think the scent is kind of refreshing, but I might be weird. It's very moisturizing, soaks in fast, and the pump is great.

Not just for the ladies
Purchased

This is my second time purchasing this product. Having a fair complexion, this has been exceptionally beneficial in preventing my skin from appearing dry. Using it on damp skin results in smoother looking skin with a healthy appearance without looking slick. I've seen no impact/staining on clothing. The fragrance is pleasant but can be noticeable and compete with subtle colognes. However, not enough to prevent me from keeping a bottle in the shower. Highly recommended.
