Doubles as a sleeping mask!

I love this mask/line. When I use this, I actually leave it on overnight (soaks into my skin within 30 minutes and I have combo/oily skin) and wash off in the AM. Makes skin feel very refreshed and soft. Smell is very pleasant.

Simple no fuss moisture mask- applied in the evening thin layer then added another- left on for 20 minutes, simple to remove not messy- didn't scare my husband and skin felt super soft. Followed with chilled avene thermal spray - easy routine.

Love Avene!

The weather and certain products can leave my skin very dry and tormented. When that happens I break this out for relief. Great for my skin!

Great mask
Purchased

With combination skin, I normally go for purifying masks, but with the change in seasons and too much rough treatment, but skin needed some extra moisturising. This was especially good as I don't like using oily moisturisers that stay on the skin, but because this washed off, no problem.

Whipped cream for the face
Purchased

This French formulation is not a "mask" that hardens or washes off, like we think of the word. You apply generously and it soaks in, and you just remove any residue left with a cotton ball.

It's creamy and very moisturizing. Smooths and softens the skin. A pleasant and mild consistency. Calming, not stimulating. Like all Avene products, nothing severe or pungent.

This "mask" might help hydrate mature or dry skin. Expect a little tiny tube; as with most skin care, the better the product, the smaller the size.

Luxurious moisturizer!
Purchased

Avene is the best thing to ever happen to my skin. This is definitely more of a winter moisturizer, but if you have dry skin it will work any time. Just layer some on your skin and let it do its thing. It leaves your skin as soft as a baby's behind. I always follow up with the mineral spray afterwards and it has helped a ton with my rosacea. Love it!

SIMPLY WONDERFUL

I discovered Avene products about a year ago, THIS being the first one I used. I have a pretty darn good micodermabrasion machine at home that I use every week. When I am done, my skin is red and sensitive. I put this mask on, it is very luxurious, and leave on for about 15 minutes. It is not a mask that dries and flakes up, it stays moisturized and all the good stuff seeps into my skin. This Avene is very well known in France for it's healing water. I also use a few other products in the. This is a comforting, soothing line of skincare for sensitive skin. I love it, and am thrilled to see at BB!
