France: Avène, Hydrance Optimale


I picked up this Avène Hydrance Optimale UV Légère in a pharmacy during a trip in Germany. I give it 4/5 thumbs up. It is as many of Avène products a good solid product that works, just no fireworks around it. Fair price, good quality.

Packaging is great, compact, flexible to get the product out. It is really good for traveling since it is compact. I was after a moisturizer that contained SPF without looking like a greasy light bulb. This is a hydrating moisturizer with antioxidants, and it also contains 20SPF which is good enough for a daily moisturizer if you do not spend lots of time under the direct sun light. The finish is not matte but it is also not greasy, it looks like a regular moisturizer, with a bit of a glow.

Would I buy this product again? Yes!
