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.

Not bad
Sampled

This was a decent product. It didn't cause breakouts like a lot of moisturizers do. I just didn't love it. There are more affordable products that I prefer, but this wasn't bad at all.

Just okay
Sampled

It serves its purpose, but I don't like how it applies. Perhaps a bit too thick for a nice day cream.

Scene Hydrating Cream
Sampled

I have normal to dry skin and this Hydrating Cream really helped the areas where I was really dry. I've tried a few of their products in sample sizes and have never been disappointed.

So Light & Airy

This is a must have hydrating cream. It leaves my skin feeling so radiant, refreshed and moisturized. I immediately bought after receiving a sample in a monthly box. Works well w/ the cleanser.

Hydrating

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.
