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 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

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.

Love this

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.

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!

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.
