Felt super moisturizing when I put it on but it on my face which is sensitive from retin-A, but by the end of the day my face looked greasy, makeup slid off somewhere throughout the day and I had a pimple on my chin...not good for me, so the hunt continues on

Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Not Sure
Before using that cream my skin was fine but had some redness and acne so I guessed a moisturizer would be something to add to my daily routine.After applying it it felt soft but a little greasy (but no oil came off of my face with a tissue).The next day after cleansing my skin felt dry wich never happened before. I applied that product and my skin felt better but always a little greasy like the day before...The first 2 days of using the cream daily my skin was a lot clearrer (less red) and 2 little pimples dissapearedThe third morning I had 2 new red spots, and the redness was back. I tought they would dissapear like all the redness before, but the 4th day they were pimples... I think it's a good moisturizer but I think maybe my skin is better when making it's own oil...

I've been using this in conjunction with the Hydrance Optimal Serum and this has greatly reduced the dryness in my skin. You need very little (when layered over the serum), it absorbs very quickly and does not leave a greasy film behind. The cream feels rich (as the name suggests) but spreads easily and is super hydrating. I am surprised just how quickly I noticed results from using this cream. My skin felt soft and supple all day long. Normally I will see dryness reappear throughout the day however makeup looks as good as it does after initial application many hours later. If wearing this overnight, skin looks plump and fresh upon waking. I really enjoy this cream and will continue to use it, especiallly throughout the winter months and switch to something more lightweight in the summer when it's hot and humid outside.

My skin loves this product. It's a little greasy after application but overnight it has made my parched winter skin supple and plump. My particular problem areas for dry and flaky skin are around my nose, chin and in between my eyebrows which have just lapped this up but even my normal/oily forehead and cheeks are happy. I tried the Kiehls ultra facial cream and it pales in comparison in texture and result. Definitely recommend for winter skin.

This product is great as an everyday moisturiser. I wanted something that wouldn't break the bank but was never satisfied with the cheaper products I tried. After reading reviews for Avene this seemed well suited to my skin (very dry, but never breaking out in spots).I have now been using this product to moisturise morning and night for over a year and don't see myself ever switching to another. Occasionally I will still get dry patches appearing during the day, so once a week I also use an overnight moisturising face mask to bring my skin back to good condition.

I tried this as an alternative to La Roche Posay Nutritic Intense Riche and have been very pleased with it.Hydrance Optimale Riche is deeply moisturising and hydrating, sinks in quickly, and works well as a makeup base. I got through a whole 40ml tube in February only because I was at home a lot and was using it liberally during the day, as well as over serum/oil at night and over my SPF moisturiser/under makeup on workdays (without my makeup sliding or pores looking bigger). I got this cream for just over £10 so could afford to be liberal with it!My skin is drier at this time of year but this cream has helped to keep it hydrated and very comfortable. I've had comments on how well my skin looks in the last couple of weeks. This is a very effective, simple and soothing moisturiser, and well worth a try.

I have hyper sensitive skin and this made me itchy and irritated my skin tremendously. I had to wash it off immediately but it made me breakout before I was able to. It has fragrance also. I don't recommend for sensitive skin.

I have combination skin but my cheeks can become dry and flakey at times. I was in a phase when my skin was dull and lifeless and also dry in cheeks. My cheeks are usually drier and dehydrated regardless of the season. I was looking for a paraben free moisturiser and because I had good experience with Clarins, I was looking at buying some French pharmacy or French skin care. Although Avene had both riche and legere formulations, I chose the riche one because I was going through a dry cheek and jaw phase. Unfortunately this one was too heavy for me - it did not give me acne, it gave small pus filled white pimples but no painful acne. Most of all this one is a very rich oil like moisturiser that is heavy and weighs down the face - although it looks light when it comes out of the tube. The greasy feeling didn't not go away and my face remained oily hours after application. The texture is too sticky to apply any powder on top. I thought my skin would accustom after a few days and kept using it only on cheeks and drier areas. But the product did not seem to penetrate my skin at all. It sat on top and left the face oily. May be I was wrong in choosing the richer formulation. Either way this product doesn't absorb into the skin at all. This is not a daytime moisturiser if you are looking for a matte supple hydrated finish. I'm yet to try legere but I found this one so poorly formulated and non absorbent that I have given up any hope for Avene products.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
