Nourish and soothe skin with the Avene Hydrance Light Hydrating Emulsion; an ultra-light moisturiser for normal and combination skin types, including sensitive. Lacklustre complexion? Avene Light Hydrating Emulsion is made to add luminosity, breathing life back into dull, dehydrated skin that might be experiencing tightness, roughness or any discomfort. After using this, more supple and bouncier skin will be visible in an instant. Its non-sticky and weightless texture means the only trace this emulsion leaves is super-soft skin that feels ultra-comfortable and quenched. Avene has reformulated its Avene Hydrance Light Hydrating Emulsion with the patented Complex Cohederm which creates water reservoirs in the skin, moisturising the upper and lower levels of the dermis for up to 24 hours. Each time you apply the silky formula it will impart a revitalising veil of hydration that reinforces your skin's natural barrier, protecting you against external irritants. Why We Love It Dehydrated skin-types this is for you! Avene Hydrance is your answer to dehydrated skin that's lacking all-round brightness. Extremely comfortable, the formula feels so light it's as if you're wearing nothing at all, plus it's super absorbent which means it will sink into the skin as soon as it's applied. The handy tube makes it mess-free to apply and perfect to pop into a wash bag if you're travelling. How To Use It Apply in the morning and evening to a cleansed face and neck. Works Well With If you're looking for hydrating formulations, why not explore the full Avene Hydrance line for more caring face and body blends? Values Non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic. Paraben-free.

SKIN TYPE:
fair, senstive/dehydrated/combination
for people with dyhydrate skin, i would not recommend this product, mostly because in my experience it doesn't do what it says it will.
after the inital application your skin feels soothed
BUT 5 mins later, the feelings goes away and your skin feels dry again, IT IS NOT LONG LASTING
furthermore, it does a strange thing where after you apply it, it leaves flakey bits on your skin, espeially when you try to put other products on top, such as sunscreen ( i noticed this happens particularly with mattfying sunscreens like my vichy one)
overall i would not recommend this, if you are looking for something that actually hydrates you skin i would throughly reccommend the RICHE version.

Intensively infuse your skin with the targeted hydration of the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rehydration Serum, a pre-moisturising concentrate that provides fortifying and soothing care. Reformulated for 2018, the bestselling Vichy Aqualia Thermal Serum is better than ever before. For this renovation Vichy has given us even more, increasing the concentration of Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water from 10% to 15% and offering 48 hours of hydration instead of 24. The lightweight, silky serum glides over skin with a quenching touch, plumping, smoothing and cooling the complexion both instantly and over time while strengthening its natural protective function. Now created with 97% natural-origin ingredients, the innovative fluid sees hyaluronic acid, plant-based glycerine, vegetal sugar mannose and 15 skin-boosting minerals infuse the complexion with lasting moisture and a fresh-looking radiance. The refreshing texture of the Aqualia Thermal Rehydrating Serum is rich in Vichy Thermal Water, which cools irritation and tightness. The fluid instantly melts into the skin without greasiness or stickiness, and skin is replenished with water. Apply evenly morning and evening to both your face and neck, and follow with your favourite Aqualia Thermal moisturiser. Hypoallergenic. Tested on sensitive skin under dermatological control. Silicone-free, mineral oil-free, PEG-free, paraben-free.

Reduce your skin's sensitivity and give it the hydration that it needs with the La Roche-Posay Hydreane Rich Moisturizing Cream for Sensitive Skin. The deeply nourishing formulation is designed to infuse dry to very dry skin with moisture rapidly, leaving no greasy finish. Sensitive skin is well respected with Hydrolipids, a new generation of water carriers that ensure suppleness and comfort are restored. There is a reduction in skin reaction*, and a noticable improvement in cutaneous sensitivity. The fresh, unctuous texture doesn't leave the skin shiny and provides an excellent make-up base. Apply to the face and neck every morning and evening. 73% reduction of sensitivity in 4 weeks with perceptible improvement. Paraben free. Non-comedogenic.

THIS IS AMAZING
if you have Combination/oily skin this is definitley something you should consider!
I used to have break outs, makeup would slide off my skin, and feel like my skin was clogged up, and it was all because i was using the wrong products for skin type. instead of using products to replinish my skin of moisture i would use harsh products to strip it of oil
oily skin is usually the result of skin trying to compensate for moisture loss, by creating lipid barrier to lubricate and protect this skin. stripping the skin of oil and not replenishing it with moisture only exacerbates this process, which can lead to more oil production, that can result in clogged pores and pimples.
Moisturer loss is very common, especially when were exposed to the elements, wind, sun ect, but unfortunately not alot of people know about it
This CREME is WONDERFUL and an absolute SEND
It REALLY DOES WORK! Its incrediably soothing, and not sticky or oily.
More importantly it hydrates your skin.
I would recomment this over the Lerger (light) version, which in my experience can form weird flakes, after application, especially when worn under a mattifying sunscreen, whereas this does not.
There is a slight scent to this product, it kinda very similar to cosmetic smell- think a generic soap or perfume smell-, but its not pungent.
As someone with very sensitive skin myself it has not broken me out or irritated my skin, so I would not hesitate to try even if you have senstive skin, since the product is free of parabens and the La-Roche posay are known for their sensitive skin formulations.
i would definitley recommend this to everyone and to all skin types :)
