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.

This is a very heavy cream and not my style. If you like a thicker face cream you might like this but it made me break out.

I have oily skin. I can't use thick moisturizers for dry to very dry skin. Not sure why this was sent to me.

Couldn't really use it since I have such oily skin. This entire box didn't really cater to my skin type.

I am allergic to this product! Unfortunately I didn't read the ingredient list until I started itching.

This kind of product isn't something that I use, I moisturize but not with this kind of stuff. So it isn't something I'm all that interested in.

Very thick

I have combination skin that has been very dry lately and so I was excited to try this product. It feels very cheap. It didn't soak into my skin well and I didn't like that it had lots of fragrance. I will be using this as a hand cream and buying something more high end for my face.
