    This is the best moisturizer I have ever ever used. Your skin will feel different and better. It keeps your skin hydrated without making it greasy, it is completely fabulous. The entire Avene line is reliably high quality and performs as advertised. Worth every penny you will pay. Thanks to drug store for making Avene easily available in the US.

    This very expensive product would be perfect for me except that it causes breakouts (zits.) It's labelled non-comedogonic (won't clog pores) but, in fact, it does, at least for me and I have really dry skin. So, I alternate it with Neutrogena's Oil Free Moisture for Sensitive Skin. Much cheaper and non-zit causing.

    Comments about Avene Hydrance Optimale, Light Hydrating Cream, 1.35 fl oz:

    I have dry, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I have come back to this moisturizer again and again. Every now and then I try some other cheaper drugstore brand, but my face starts breaking out. As soon as I switch back to Avene, my face is happy again! It is definitely on the pricey side, but the small tube lasts a long time because you only need to apply a tiny amount. I love this moisturizer!

    A little goes a long way. I love how my face feels, how the product smells and that one small tube will last me approximately 6 months.

      does not moisturize

      Comments about Avene Hydrance Optimale, Light Hydrating Cream, 1.35 fl oz:

      ...leaves face feeling tight/dry (the company needs to cross-breed this with their "rich hydrating cream" because it moisturizes but does not absorb)

          I really love the texture. It is light but can moisturize my skin. The best part is it leaves a smooth feeling after overnight sleep. I've tried a lot of gel-cream products for combination-normal skin. Except this, the only product I like is Channel Hydramax gel-cream, the smell is a little bit strong though and much pricy than this one. And they are quite same, except the texture.

            Originally bought in Italy by my 16 year old daughter as she left her moisturizer at home. She loved it as it was very light yet still moisturizes well.

              This creamy moisturizer is light and absorbs quickly. It is also one of the only moisturizers that doesn't leave my skin looking a little blotchy and or reddened after I apply it. Extremely gentle.

                Comments about Avene Hydrance Optimale, Light Hydrating Cream, 1.35 fl oz:

                I have combination, somewhat sensitive skin that has recently started suffering from redness, particularly around the T-zone. I'm using only Avene skincare to try it out and I like it a lot in just the two weeks I've used it. This lotion is very lightweight. It moisturizes but I don't feel/see it on my skin, which is ridiculously soft to the touch! I use it in the day under either mineral foundation or primer that already contains SPF, as well as in the evening. It has only a faint fragrance that doesn't smell bad at all.
