Pleasant to Use


I find most Avene moisturizers tend to be sticky and greasy but this one is actually more pleasant to use. I can use it both at nighttime and daytime without worrying that my face well be shiny all day long. It provides great moisture, deep hydration, glides on silky smooth. Doesn't seem to clog up pores so no issues with breakouts.

Best Value Moisturizer


I received a sample of this Avene product and fell in love. Optimale Riche smells terrific (natural and non-lingering) and feels amazing going on your skin. I use this at night with my hydroquinone prescribed product from my dermatologist and it works perfectly. No SPF, so not great for daytime... in terms of weight, it is heavy enough for night without feeling greasy, and the excellent price point is a bonus.

Perfect winter cream for sensitive skin


LOVE this cream! It is thick and creamy, never stings, and is not greasy. I use it every night and wake up with velvety soft skin that is hydrated and revived. Having sensitive skin that is prone to becoming itchy and flaky during the winter, this cream provides the needed protection and moisture to survive the harsh winter. I have never had any breakouts, stinging, or other unfortunate side effects from using this cream. The quality of the product is amazing and well worth the price. I wouldn't suggest using this during the summer because it is so thick and rich, but the Avene line is so incredible there are plenty of other options, such as the Clean AC hydrating cream.

MY HG moisturizer


I have been using this product for about 5-6 years. I try other products and go off of it, but always come back to it. I don't know if it really minimizes fine lines - even though I'm 45 and a sun worshiper I don't have a lot of lines. Maybe it's because I use this! I have combination skin which is dehydrated. There is a big difference between dry and dehydrated skin. This has a wonderful texture, no scent, sinks in immediately, doesn't break me out and isn't oily. There is a lighter version of this moisturizer, but haven't tried it. I highly recommend this, even in the summer. I love Avene products!
