Avène Hydrance Optimale RICH Hydrating Cream

If your skin feels drier than the Sahara Desert, we’d like to introduce you to the skincare equivalent of a tall glass of water. This deeply nourishing face cream for dry and sensitive skin restores skin’s natural moisture barrier and balances hydration levels throughout the day with a blend of targeted ingredients. Rich shea butter protects skin while Avène Thermal Spring Water gently soothes and softens without irritating. A combo of lipomucine and meiboserine work together to lock in optimum hydration and prevent dehydration. We can’t think of a better way to quench our skin’s thirst.

I thought that this product was OK but honestly there are better moisturizers out there.

I think this would be good for someone with dry skin but as my skin is combo heavy on the oily all it did was break me out.

Tricked my skin

I thought I really liked this product. Smelled and really moisturized my face. Unfortunately caused me to an acne breakout. As soon as I stopped using my acne went away:((

I like some of the ingredients but seems very gimmicky. I've used this product before for over 40 days and did not see any slight change or difference

Sensitive skin beware

I am always excited to try new skincare products but this was a huge disappointment. I tried this two different times to make sure that the timing wasn't bad but it made me breakout both times. The texture and smell were average so even if it didn't irritate my skin I still probably wouldn't purchase it. On top of all of that the packaging is ugly.

First few hours my face felt hydrated but after a while my face kept feeling dry. Not what I want to feel in the middle of a busy day.

My face is semi oily and this just added way to much additional oil

This create seemed like it would be super moisturizer. However, after using it a couple nights in a row I work up with a thankfully small rash on my face. I think I might be allergic to one of the ingredients in it. Happily the rash went away after a day.
