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.

Everything I've been looking for in a body oil and more.

Lightweight, terrifically quick absorption, leaves a shine without feeling greasy, and it smells really fresh & floral. I don't think the scent is overpowering, but I think it's a love it or hate it kind of thing.

I will ALWAYS have a bottle of this from now on.

Excellent Product!
Purchased

This stuff spells LOVE for me! Not only does this this this awesome oil do wonders for dry winter skin after getting out of the shower, but has done wonders for my hand. my hand is partially paralyzed yet in constant pain (from a burn injury) so I can't scrub them, but this oil has healed the burn, although my hand is still very swollen. But I had tried even Eucerin before and it did nothing compared to this oil!!! Let's just say I'm a believer!!!! I also add a bit of oil to my razor after I'm done using it and have cleaned it well. It really extents the life of your razors immensely.

LOVE THIS OIL!!!!

I am a lover of Caudalie, but I am broke. So I tried this. I love the smell of pine, and the scent definitely is stronger when the oil first goes on your skin, but it fades after a bit. Also I do not get any whiff of cleaning-product-pine; more like actual pine that you would want in a perfume. So I think it's a good soft smell to have close to your skin.

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.

Nice woodsy smell and really hydrates

I'm very sensitive to smell so I'm really surprised I like the woodsy smell of this oil. The smell does not linger. With the winter here in Chicago, my skin was feeling itchy from dryness. I used this once and the itchiness and dryness has gone away. I would recommend.

Love at first whiff...
Purchased

The scent of this product is delightfully classy and the consistency is thick...a little goes a long way. I have high hopes that the scent and moisturization are long lasting!

Love this oil and scent
Purchased

This body oil is amazing! I usually shower and moisturize at night. I've tried everything from Kiehl's body cream to CeraVe and Cetaphil, but nothing keeps my skin soft into the next day like the Avene Body Oil. I truly feel a difference in the skin texture as well.

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.
