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.

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.

skin feels amazing
Purchased

I went looking for a body moisturizer that I wouldn't have to spend loads of time rubbing in, and would leave my skin soft and smelling great, and I found just that with Avene's body oil. If I put it on right out of the shower after I pat my skin dry so it still has some moisture, a few pumps of the oil with cover everything and it leaves my skin soft (and in the winter, flake-free) all day.

Nice way to keep skin hydrated

I use the oil about two to three times a week and I love the way it makes my skin feel. Not too heavy or greasy.

Amazing!
Purchased

I ordered this out of desparation....In the winter my legs are extremely dry and itchy. I feel like I'm growing scales....I just received this item and used it 2 times...yes, 2 times...and my legs are already massively improved!!! I really only bought it for use on my legs but once I started I couldn't stop! I used it all over and it is great!! I can honestly say that I am actually considering wearing a skirt for the first time in a very long time! I do believe that I have a budding obsession with Avene.

I have used many different kinds of body oil and this is my favorite out of every brand I have ever used. It is so light and it smells amazing. It has a light scent that is not overwhelming. It also leaves your skin super soft.

This product is amazing!
Purchased

This product is great for the winter months, for when my skin gets incredibly dry. I use it before bed and wake up with well hydrated skin.

The best product for your body ever
Purchased

This is one of the finest products for the body that I have ever used. I am a huge fan of oils and this one is reasonably priced so it can be used everyday in your regimen. It absorbs quickly, has a clean scent (does not interfere with fragrance) and leaves skin soft and silky. I sent to my best friend who has eczema after reading the package literature and she swears that it helps. Great find, Birchbox!

Light and moisturizing
Purchased

I love this oil! It's especially good in the winter for dry skin, but it's very lightweight at the same time -- not goopy or heavy, and it soaks into the skin quickly. I only use it as body oil, not on my face.

The scent is nice, kind of woodsy and fresh, but I didn't like it at first. It took a few uses for me to get used to it, and now I really love it.
