As with most Avène products I am satisfied, no amazing feeling, but solid results. Let’s say that their products are maybe not exciting, but they get the job done and the prices are reasonable.
This is a hydrating creme for oily skin, it leaves a matte finish on the skin. If you have oily skin this might be an option for you. It does not contain SPF, which could be nice in a creme that you use for the day. You could of course have some SPF on your make up.
Sample size was good, it was enough for a couple of tries, packaging was also good, small but practical.
Would I buy this cream based on the sample? Yes I would, if I would be after a cream with a matte finish.
