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.

So moisturizing and not too thick or thin. I love to apply in the evening and dry skin is gone. Smells nice and doesn't make me breakout like some moisturizers.

Thick and creamy
Sampled

Wow.... so after a few times in I was thinking... "is this face or body lotion?!" It's super thick and moisturizing which most face lotions are light... but I love this!! Unbelievably moisturizing, I like using it on no makeup days or before bed. :)

Not for me
Sampled

This product seems to make my skin react in a negative way, with red bumps. I'm not sure what specific ingredient causes it, but it's not a product that will work for me, personally.

Great Stuff

I use this with my nightly retinol application. It helps keep my skin from getting irritated from the retinol. I will definitely purchase the full size!

I have incorporated this cream into my nightly routine and it really helps during the winter when my skin is dry. It does have a very medicinal lotion smell to it though.

My skin soaked this up
Sampled

My skin loved this! So rich and creamy and had a subtle scent. This stuff is amazing, and I'm using it sparingly so that it lasts as long as possible.

It's very nice. I also mix it with my BB cream in the morning. It's light and refreshing. I would recommend it.
