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.

love it!

Probably my most favorite sample so far. Love the smell. I also like how it doesn't leave a greasy feeling

woodsy scent
Purchased

This smells fantastic, and is very calming. It also works great to hydrate your skin! It has an earthy/woodsy/ but yet, still feminine odor.

smooth and silky but not oily
Purchased

This product is fantastic-- I have super dry skin, even in summer, and this oil is actually better and lighter than all that gloppy lotion. Plus it smells fantastic. A plus for people who have keratosis pilaris: it smooths out those little bumps. Do be sure to let it dry before you put your clothes on,though.

LOVE

I adore this oil. It's moisturizing and the smell is fantastic; sort of musky and woodsy. I use after every shower and can see a real difference in my skin. Highly recommend.

yes!

i bought this product just based upon the reviews and description on birchbox, and I love it so much. I think I have become a lifetime convert. I LOVE the smell- it is so hard to find beauty products where the smell is right up my ally. It smells woody, clean, and exotic. Plus, it is soo moisturizing but it is best applied when right out of the bath when your skin is still a little damp. I will definitely be buying this product again.

Perfect

I love love love this product!! The smell is amazing and original. I cannot get out of the shower and not put this on. I prefer to use it at night so that it will soak in more. I will always have a bottle in my bathroom. This stuff is great.

Love how this body oil leaves my skin soft and silky! Sweet, refreshing smell reminds me of summer! I leave it in the shower and quickly apply to my wet skin. Faster than lotion when I a in a hurry. Will purchase again!

Little Goes a Long Way
Purchased

I'm always looking for moisturizing products that will alleviate my severely dry winter skin, and this is now at the top of my list. It's light, smells nice, and doesn't leave an oil slick feeling!

Good for very dry skin
Purchased

I cannot get over how GOOD this smells! The lightly perfumed oil smells even nicer after it's warmed by your skin.

This body oil is not a light moisturizer (in my opinion), it takes some massaging to get it to really soak in and I have had good luck with it on very dry parts of my skin. If you use too much or don't really rub it in, it can feel greasy. That being said, it's one of my favorite products. Also works great for a massage oil.

Best Body Oil
Purchased

This body oil works so wonderfully in the winter time with any skin type. Love the smell as it is not too overwhelming. It sinks into your skin and never feels greasy when you put it on.
