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.
