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.

Just your average lotion. Good scent though but I wouldn't spend the money to buy

I received this in my October box and I wanted to like it! It said it was for dry-Very dry skin which is exactly what I struggle with this time of year. BUT this product just didn't work for me. I like the smell and the consistency-my skin absorbed it quickly. But it left my face tight and feeling even drier than usual. I tried it with and without my other products and no difference. I will not be buying this product.

I do not have sensitive skin nor have I been prone to break outs for over 20 years, this cream made my face break out on my forehead, chin line. My skin did not like this product

Smells like diaper cream

This is the second product I've received from this brand and I've hated both. This went on thick and smelled terrible, then felt oily as you rubbed it in. Definitely not a fan

The smell is terrible. I won't put this on my face. I'm going to pass this on to my mom.

Moisturizer

I'm sure this product is much better than I'm reviewing it as but I was sent the moisturizer for dry to very dry skin and I gave oily to very oily skin so it was not good for me at all. I do have one spot that is very dry right now and I put it just on that area of my face and it still felt thick and slimy. Not a fan and I find myself very frustrated that I have a customized profile stating I have very oily skin and was sent the wrong type of product.

This is just another moisturizer. It's not special in any way and it doesn't smell very good either. Really tired of moisturizer samples already
