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 wonderful product . I love the way my skin feels after applying the cream. This winter has been specially hard on the skin, so this rich cream is a must for me.

I don't like it. It was nothing special and didn't do a thing for me or my skin. I don't know why I would blow money on it.

I use this cream primarily for my dry winter hands at night and it nourishes them back to an acceptable level.

Avenue is wonderful for sensitive skin. This is a heavier moisterizer but the skin absorbs it quickly and leaves skin feeling very smooth. Perfect for harsh winter weather!

Love this moisturizer

Such a great moisturizer- immediately erases any dry skin and isn't too think or greasy. I would suggest as a nighttime cream or for the winter weather.

Multipurpose Moisturizer
SampledPurchased

I have dry,sensitive skin but am often disappointed with the sheen left by most moisturizers with enough emollients. This strikes a great balance between a natural finish and moisture and layers well throughout the day if you need to reapply to clean/un-made up skin.
Most mornings, this is all I put on my skin!

This stuff did wonders at keeping my skin posterized without any greasy residue. It doesn't have a strong smell and soaks in instantly.
