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 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.5
This oil is incredible: it's versatile, soothing, and pleasantly fragrant. Perfect for use as a body lotion or a massage oil or a light hair oil or...the list goes on. I'm not big on putting oil on my face (can lead to breakouts for me), but this oil is light enough that if I'm in a bind, I'm not afraid to rub some on my cheeks. The scent is delicious and subtle: just a hint of the outdoors, but not too masculine or feminine so it's really great for everyone.5
I've purchased Avene Body Oil several times. The somewhat woodsy smell isn't for everyone, but in general it's a nourishing body oil that's easy on my sensitive skin.5
I purchased this mainly because of the price, and for the price it is an excellent choice---but the odor is not one I love. I did know the odor was piney before I purchased the p;roduct, so I was prepared. It is smooth and provides a nice touch to wet skin---so it's a good product for the price. Just be aware, the scent is unusual.3
Oil has a great smell - pleasant, but not overwhelming
Leaves skin very soft
Same results as Caudalie oil yet less expensive
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.4
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.4
I wasn't too crazy about the smell - kind of a old lady smell, but it is very moisturizing. A little bit definitely goes a long way. Great size product for the price.3
I love the fresh woodsy scent to this body oil. I put it on right after I get out of the shower--a little goes a long way, and it keeps my skin soft and moisturized all day without any greasy residue. Great oil for the price.5
This oil absorbs easily, leaves your skin with a glisteny sheen, and smells absolutely divine, like a walk through an amazing forest.5
