My skin has been so dry, rough, uncomfortable and nothing works (DDML+, Kheils ultra, PC moisture boost, cicalfate, amlactin, weleda almond oil, etc. etc.). I got a sample of this and tried it in the evening after washing. It didn't spread well- felt thick but not too moist, and immediately had a matte/velvety look(but in bad way, I like a sheen b/c my skin is so dry). Within 1min, I couldn't tell I had even put anything on. There was not even a protective/filmy feel, my skin just sucked it up and remained dry and rough. Usually when this happens, nothing improves over time. A few hours later when I went to sleep, still the same. I was disappointed. Went to sleep (smelling kind of retro, old lady like, this stuff is highly fragrant, fyi) But, surprise...!!In the morning my skin was much softer! Not perfect or normal, but a lot better. With every other moisturizer, I'm dry by the time I wake up, even if it went on nicely...it just doesn't last long enough. I didn't wash my face in the morning b/c I wanted to see how long this would last. In the evening 6pm, my skin still felt soft, about the same as the morning.So, this one seems to take a while (4-5+ hours?) to work, but easily lasts 24 hours. I will keep using AM and PM a few days and update. But, for now I give it 3 lippies, it worked better than anything so far, but the smell isn't great (no irritation, but I'm not sensitive to fragrance- just really don't like useless extra ingredients), it takes a while to kick in (at least first time), and its a pretty basic formula.That said, given how quickly it sunk in and left no grease, it might work well for combo/slightly dry types with no waiting.

Great cream! I use it as a night cream and as a day cream in winter for some areas of my face. Really cheap and lasts for a long time.Very greasy but it never gave me pimples of any sort.

This cold cream is quite heavy as a moisturiser but is very good for areas of dry skin. It has a rather sickly smell that I'm not so fond of but otherwise it's a pretty good product.

“Cold snap” is certainly the right word - when the temperature dove in our area my skin certainly felt the snap and suddenly dried. It’s almost embarrassing to list the number of moisturizers lining my bathroom cabinet. When applied to dry spots many of these moisturizers tend to sit there and then just slip away making no difference to the skin. Most of them do well when they’re not challenged, but can’t do much in the face of really dry skin - Avene Cold Cream can! There’s a small point on one side of the lid that cleanly penetrates the foil protecting the cream when you’re ready to use it. (Avene thinks of everything!) Admittedly I wasn’t very hopeful because I was remembering my mother’s jar (small tub would be more accurate) of cold cream which left her face greasy. I remember poking in that jar as a child and wanting no part of it. There is absolutely no resemblance between that cold cream and this efficacious potion! First of all, the Avene Cold Cream is a silky soft cream that easily glides on to hydrate and protect. It’s a wonderful base for concealer and foundation if used in the a.m., and perfect for healing, calming skin if used at bedtime. My mother would have loved this Cold Cream, and I do, too.

Great product. I have acne-prone combination skin, with an oily t-zone, which is at the same time the dryest part of my face (no idea how that is possible, but that's what it is). My t-zone is red because of the dryness. I use the Avene cold cream on the dryest parts of my face and most of the redness has gone! Also, it doesn't break me out, which was why it took my so long to try it out on my face. I had bought it initially for my hands, but found that it was difficult to distribute evenly. However, on the face it smooths out fine, perhaps because I use just multiple tiny amounts of product.The packaging is one of those metal tubes, which means that air won't go back into the tube. Cheap too, around €10,-.

I LOVE this product. I use chemical peels at home every 4 days (glycolic/lactic and salicylic acid interchangeably) and this cream is the only product that keeps my skin smooth and without dry patches. It is VERY rich and comes in a small tube, but since I use it only occasionally it's definitely worth the price. It's also perfect to put under your nose after a cold or when your skin is sore. It doesn't break me out and I have very acne-prone skin (thus the peels). However, for my everyday moisturizer I use Dermalogica Active Moist.

This was my first Avene product.The packaging makes me feel so fancy, it's kind of in a really nice metal tube. I had to ask my husband how to open it cause i'm a dummy--the top of the lid can be turned around to poke the top of the spout on the tube. Pretty neat.It smells fantastic. Also makes you feel really fancy. But I'm not sure how I feel on the product. My skin has a whole slew of issues--including redness, inflammation and being easily irritated with rosacea.Application sucks. I suspect because of the beeswax it's pretty waxy going on. I kind of hate putting it on cause it feels like I have to use more effort/force to get it smooth. But it soaks in nicely,I think Avene uses some sort of orange oil for fragrance? I'm not 100% but I suspect that's why my rosacea flares just a bit. Citrus is usually a cause behind redness, and citrus in general is bad for skin but I figured it was just a bit for fragrance so I bought the cold cream anyway. It's bearable but one of my skin priorities is reducing and preventing redness.To be honest, because of the orange oil I suspect they use for fragrance I probably won't buy any more Avene. I'm still some what eyeing another product, I can't decide if I'll try it or not now.

I had itchy, dry and reddish-looking skin patches after trying out a new cleanser from another brand. So, I decided to try Cold Cream. Initially, upon application, the product didn't get absorbed quickly and the surface of my skin looked oily and sticky. Amazingly, after 2-3 hours in an air-conditioned room, the product was absorbed and most of the red patches on my skin was almost gone. I would not use it during the day as it makes my face look really oily and since the temperature in my country is hot and humid during the day it would be difficult for the cream to get absorbed. But I would use it as a night cream for the dry patches on my skin. Anyway, what matters is that the product really works for dry irritated skin.

This is just a great product for easily irritated and dry skin. I use it alone or with the Cicalfate Cream depending on how my skin feels. Makeup goes on smoothly and skin stays dewy but not oily.

I love this cream. It's great for sensitive skin like mine and it helps to sooth my inflamed skin when i'm out in the skin. It's cooling and refreshing and I love the smell.
