My favorite moisturizer
Purchased

I love this moisturizer. My skin has become super sensitive, and rejects every moisturizer I have tried, even ones by La Roche Posay (which has two for sensitive skin, and it known, like Avene, for being gentle). This moisturizer is a bit thicker than I had expected, but it absorbs nicely. My skin loves it, feels more plump and healthy than it has in a while. It reduced my redness, especially coupled with the no rinse lotion cleanser. You don't need much of this moisturizer, and the advice reviewer "Gen88" gave of press really gently until you get the hang of how much comes out the top was really helpful when I first got this product. It is now one of my baseline products, and something I can't live without, so glad I found it.

Watch that lid
Purchased

This is a high quality facial cream. Emolliative as well as moisturizing. The feeling on the skin is a little rich and creamy. However, it's mild and light, not "heavy duty." Extremely light scent, not bothersome at all.

I have Rosacea. Recently it's taken a strange turn and refused to respond to medication. Therefore I am trying Avene products. The Rosacea has not been "cured" but I also am not getting "flare-ups" - and at times the redness calms down.

Please make a note on this tube of Cream. Do not squeeze too hard, especially when you first open it! There is a gizmo on top of the lid designed to let lotion out, yet also keep air out, for the "sterility" of the product lifelong. (After all these are the people that gave us Pasteur.)

If you're not an engineer, at first glance it makes no sense. The tube might seem stuck. You squeeze, and, ugh! expensive cream all over the place.

Once you SLOWLY and GENTLY press the tube, triggering this odd mechanism the first time, the way it works will be obvious, and subsequent openings manageable.

My daily moisturizer
Purchased

This goes on smoothly and is non greasy and light. I have sensitive skin prone to breakouts and mild Rosacea. This moisturizer is mild enough for me to wear daily and has helped to calm my skin.

Read the previous reviews about the unconventional lid to save yourself from squirting out too much!

Very happy with the this prosuct

Not the best
Purchased

I really like the way this lotion feels on my skin, non greasy, soaks in fast, and doesn't make me breakout. The only problem I have is that my skin is super dry and I had to reapply a few times during the day.

My new everyday cream

I love a thick moisturizer for my face. I have very dry and very sensitive skin. This is a great consistency and leaves my face feeling hydrated and light. Love it!

Ehh
Purchased

I like this product but it went on very thick and made my skin feel oily. Also I haven't really noticed a change in the appearance of my skin.

Perfect moisturizer!
Purchased

My face instantly felt soft and hydrated! I have super sensitive skin that can easily be irritated- this cream soothes it while moisturizing. Really impressed! Best part is that there is no smell. I can't stand strong smells for facial products. Highly recommend!

OMG and then some
Purchased

This is by far the best moisturizer I have ever tried. I have never been able to use a cream moisturizer without it breaking me out. I have now been using this product for three weeks with fantastic, redness reducing, no breaking out results! Will be a part of my beauty routine from now on!

Soothing, moisturizing
Purchased

I have sensitive skin and rosacea, and this cream has made a difference after using it only twice! I have used the past two nights, and it moisturized without feeling too heavy and felt soothing. I have woken up both both mornings with very calm, non-red skin. I can't wait to see how well it performs with continued use!

The best cream for upset skin
Purchased

This is a amazing healing cream for upset skin. I always keep some on hand for when my skin is irritated. It always calms down the skin. It never stings or burns but calms the skin. If my skin is red after a peel this is my go to product. I love this product. I have also used it after laser treatments. It calms and the redness goes away quickly. My derm doctor was the first to recommend this product.
