I have sensitive/combination/rosacea prone skin. If I don't take the proper sun precautions my face breaks out. This cream is a tad heavy so super oily types I wouldn't recommend this to. This...

My review is for the Hydrance optimale light with SPF 20. I love it for my acne prone, oily and sensitive skin! It gives a bit of moisture but leaves a nice matte finish, which I adore. It...

My review is for Avene Hydrance Optimale Light *without* SPF. I've tried the SPF version too and I liked both actually. But I received only a sample of the one with SPF, and though it was quite a...

Review for Hydrance Optimale - Light version with SPF20. A very nice light moisturizer that feels thin when on but does the work. There is something about the texture of this that is lovely on my...

This review is for the 'light' version of Hydrance Optimale, not the thicker 'riche' one. This is a fantastic day cream. It's the only SPF-containing moisturiser that hasn't left thick white...

I really like the formula without SPF b/c it is lighter than this. This one has an yellowish color b/c of the SPF and it's heavier. It's still a very good moisturizer and I would wear it when I go...

This is a great cream that doesn't break me out. It is getting a little too heavy for the summer so I am going on to use the Light Protective Cream. I found this range after starting to shy away...

Great moisturising cream for normal to dry skin and definately not recommended for oily skin. This is a delicious skin food! The scent reminds me of heliotrope or may be it is! No tingling,...

I bought this one last summer. It is a delicious cream, nice smelling and very moisturising. Avene is my favorite brand. But the skin gets a little whiter because of the sun protectant, too bad....

Great moisturizer for dry skin, but my face looks pale and unnatural (chalky) when I apply liquid foundation over it. This is definitely my choice for summer.
