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.

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.

LOVE THIS OIL

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.

Body nourishment in a bottle....
Purchased

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.

Hyrdrating, great smell
Purchased

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.

Very nice for the price!
Purchased

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.

Good moisturizer
Purchased

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.

Best smell ever!

This oil absorbs easily, leaves your skin with a glisteny sheen, and smells absolutely divine, like a walk through an amazing forest.
