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 it was very oily and wet more of a watered down lotion

Hydrating
Sampled

This is not meant for me. I have combination skin but this leaves my skin greasy and make up application afterwards is a nightmare.

Very hydrating
Sampled

Just tried my sample while on travel - loved it! I usually use the Avene serum and then a moisturizer, but only had this cream with me. My skin felt great, not tight. It wasn't greasy, and my sensitive skin didn't break out. I may purchase this next winter.

Great basic moisturizer
Sampled

I really like this as a basic AM/PM moisturizer. Moisture is long lasting but not greasy, which is important for my oily skin.

Not for my combination skin
Sampled

Too heavy and thick for my skin. My pores actually got bigger while I tried this over a few day period. I prefer lighter creams.

Just ok
Sampled

I like Avene products but I have oily skin so I don't put this on my face. Fine for hands or a dry patch.

I really liked this line, I really hadn't heard or tried this line before and I was really impressed.

Love this
Sampled

Definitely love this. It feels amazing all day and provides the perfect amount of dewy finish without crossing into greasy, shiny territory. Can't wait to own a full size.

Ah-mazing
Sampled

This is one of my favorite Birchbox samples to date. I use it in the evenings and it soaks in quickly and leaves my face feeling great...as in I can't stop touching my face fantastic. Will be ordering a full size!
