Hot cocoa dates, ice-skating, freshly fallen snow: there’s plenty to love about winter. But when it comes to keeping our skin supple and happy, there’s plenty to not love about the frigid temps. This ultrarich restorative facial moisturizer is here to keep the peace between your skin and the chilly, dry air—and to rejuvenate dry and very dry skin year-round. It nourishes and reduces dehydration and flakiness to revitalize dull skin, and, at the same time, works to prevent future damage by providing antioxidant protection.

Really moisturizing
Purchased

I thought I'd try this on my dry, sensitive skin and was pleasantly surprised. It's very moisturizing, and not highly fragranced. For my older skin it made a great day cream. Also a good value for the price, I've paid much more for creams that did much less.

Amazing!
Purchased

When I first read the description for this product, I wasn't sure it was going to be for me since I have fairly oily skin. However, I decided to try it anyway and it has saved my skin. I only need a very small amount (about the size of a pea) and it moisturizes my entire face. It has calmed the redness from my overly sensitive skin. It has also helped smooth out my rough texture; I can't remember a time my face has been this smooth. The smell is very fresh and even though it is a thicker formula, it soaks into my skin immediately. I definitely recommend this to all skin types, particularly during this time a year.

Rich but not heavy, good for day and night
Purchased

My skin is sensitive and very dry in these Chicago winters! So far I would say this cream is effective; it has improved the dry, red spots on my skin. I like that its lightweight enough that I can use this in the morning before putting on makeup and its not at all greasy. To me, this is an ideal day cream for dry skin. For nighttime, I would still prefer something richer. Overall, I like this product and would buy it again.

Good product but just for dry skin

I have a combination skin and used this product at winter time. It moistures skin really well but for my type this cream is to heavy.

Excellent
Purchased

This is an exceptional facial cream for dry and aging skin.
I must admit it is the best I have used so far and I have tried many face lotions and creams to moisturize my face. You cannot go wrong and it is worth the price. The best months to use this cream are winter months.

Rich Moisturizer
Purchased

This moisturizer is EXCELLENT for cold winter months. I'm really hardcore into skincare, and I am a big fan of Avene products because they are quality products and have no scent. If you suffer from dry skin, I definitely recommend this product.

"You can't be too rich..."
Purchased

This face/neck cream has a rich texture. It's oriented to drier complexions. It feels nice - creamy and thick, very smooth, and also mild for sensitive skin. I found it totally non-irritating. Comes with an optional tiny spatula for scooping out cream, to help contents stay fresh. Avene emphasizes simple, clean, gentle.
