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.

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.

My favorite all time body oil!
Purchased

My dermatologist recommended this for after my shower to maintain the moisture level in my skin. I was so excited to find it on Birch Box which is more convenient than going to her office to purchase. The scent is divine and it is the right thickness so it does not get your shower floor slippery. I love this body oil and use it daily.

since I have tried this over one year ago I keep it stocked. It is the best body oil I have ever used and has a pleasant smell also.

Best used after showering
Purchased

I finally gave in to all the dry skin advice in beauty articles that body oil would cure my chronic dry skin. The first time I tried this oil, I wasn't impressed. The floral smell was stronger then described and me self conscience. It didn't seem to absorb as quickly and didn't seem to help my dry skin so the bottle sat unused in my cabinet for bit. On a whim, I tried it again. Except this time I used it right after I got out of the shower and that's when the magic happened. It made my dry scratchy winter skin feel soft and lush. My skin will feel a little slick after application but not enough to effect your clothes.
