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 bought this product because I was looking for an alternative to body lotion and this product had good reviews. This product left me feeling oily, as it did not absorb into my skin (even after a few hours). I will be returning this product, as I was hoping to be left with moisturized skin (without the oily after effect).2
Oil is nice and rubs in relatively well. It is a little thigh and doesn't spray evenly, but u get used to it. Smell is nice, not overwhelming4
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.5
In last month's Birthbox there was a sample of Caudalie Divine Oil and I loved it. The smell of it was just ... heavenly. The sample size just wasn't enough to convince me on body oils and buying a whole bottle while still on the fence was a little too spendy. So, I cheaped out and bought the Avene. I figured for half the price, I would have plenty of time to determine if body oils were for me or if I would remain a hard core lotion girl. I simply can't get past the smell. It doesn't smell anything like pine and outdoors to me. It smells like cheap hairspray. Like Aquanet circa 1984 cheap. Bad scent aside, lotion works better for me. An hour or two after using the oil, I look just as dry as I did before my shower and I stink.3
I like this product as a post-shower "I'm in a hurry" moisturizer. It has a nice smell and doesn't leave a residue, so I can get dressed immediately after applying.4
Not so thrilled about the mineral oil, but emulsifies great and makes my skin soft. A bit greasy on its own, though, best to apply to wet/damp skin.4
I love this product. My only suggestion is that it should be a spray instead of the current way the oil is dispensed. It would be easier to apply.4
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.5
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.5
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.5
