I really struggle with heavy sensitive creams so I was so happy to see the thinner texture of this day cream. It gave me great coverage and smooth hydration while allowing my skin to breathe. I had a reduction in my eczema patches and just generally felt my skin was plump and juicy.
This cream was so luxurious and felt amazing after applying the Avene A-Oxitive Antioxidant Defence Serum. The cream is slightly scented but did not irritate my sensitive skin, and it left my face feeling smooth and hydrated. Light enough as a daywear cream and just the right amount of heaviness to use as a night cream. it’s the perfect all rounder!
I've trialled the Smoothing water cream for the last 2 weeks and it's been a positive experience. My skin is temperamental during the colder seasons. It's normally on the dehydrated side and I suffer from rosacea and mild adult acne. As my normal skincare routine I use cleanser, clarifying lotion, serum and moisturiser/ sunscreen. When in regranting the new product I simply switched out my moisturiser for the water cream. The water cream is a nice light cream. It applies nice and easily and smooths on the skin well. It absorbs in a matter of seconds and leaves zero residue on the skin. It has a nice light moisturiser smell. Not sure if it's scented but it has a nice neutral scent. The cream is nice and light, soothing a cooling. It didn't cause any irritation, probably because it's designed for sensitive skin. My rosacea and acne weren't made worse. If anything my rosacea seemed to be slightly calmed. I would absolutely recommend it to friends and family.
You can start to applying preventive anti-ageing products as soon as the following signs appear: tired skin, dull complexion subjected to a polluted environment, first fine lines. Some very specific ranges such as the A-OXitive range will protect the skin from oxidative stress, delay the first signs of ageing and boost the radiance of the complexion.
You can certainly use A-OXitive DAY Smoothing Water-Cream as a make-up base. It is even an illuminating base thanks to the presence of copper and violet pearls, which readjust luminosity and colour balances. For a real "Snapchat filter effect". For a beautiful glowy complexion: - Apply the A-OXitive Antioxidant Defense Serum followed by the Smoothing Water-Cream.
To remove all traces of pollution, start by cleansing your skin with a micellar water such as the Avène Micellar Lotion. Complete your cleansing routine with the Avène Thermal Spring Water Spray: spray generously, then gently massage with your fingertips to loosen up any lingering impurities. Then dry gently. Don't forget to apply a detoxifying anti-ageing products such as A-OXitive NIGHT Peeling Cream.
