AVÈNE PRODUCT REVIEW | Rebecca Sophie

Hey guys!  Video post from me again 🙂

Today I wanted to chat about my favourite skincare brand for when my skin is super sensitive and dry. Avène products are all made from Avène spring water and are dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic so they are super soft on all skin types but made particularly with sensitive skin in mind. I always go back to these products when my skin is feeling particularly sensitive so I wanted to share my favourites and hopefully help anyone out who has a similar skin type!

I have been using Avène Skin Recovery Cream after it was recommended by my pharmacist back home. It has MASSIVELY helped with horrible dry patches that I’ve been getting in these colder months.

Avène Micellar Lotion Has been a favourite of mine for years, just super soft on the skin but you feel like it’s properly cleaned the makeup off your face each time.

A new favourite of mine is the Avène Intense Hydration Serum because it’s just such a great hydration boost for emergencies, or for if you just feel like you need an extra layer under your regular moisturiser.

My walk to work in the morning just so happens to be down one of the most polluted streets in London, and so I was looking for an anti-pollution cream for a while. Since I trust Avene products, the Avène A-Oxitive was a no-brainer for me. I know a lot of this kind of thing hasn’t been proven but this product has been tested on many people, and helps with the production of Vitamin E in your skin which is known to be lacking in people who live in highly polluted areas.

Another hydration favourite of mine is the Avène Soothing Hydration Mask. Super easy and quick, you just pop this on and leave it for 10-15 minutes and you notice the difference immediately! This is my go-to product when my skin is freaking out a little so I would HIGHLY recommend it!

And just as an FYI for the video below, my regular face cream is the La Roche-Posay Nutritic Intense Riche 🙂

Favourite Facial Products

Today I thought I would show you my go-to facial products. As you know, I can get pretty picky with this kind of thing because of my eczema, but these are my favourites that have been tried and tested again and again:

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash
There’s nothing better than starting your day with a refreshing face wash! This one goes above and beyond because not only is it PINK and happy but it smells so fresh and has never let me down.

No. 7 Essential Moisture
As moisturisers go, I get pretty picky because of my eczema. No. 7 products have really become a go-to for me because they’re hypo-allergenic without being those boring creams my dermatologist gives me. I use their Essential Moisture night and day creams and I’m really happy with them, only £9 too!

Nivea Creme
I don’t even know how to start with this one. It is no joke my life saver. My mom used to use this on my when I was little, and I now use it for everything, even as a makeup remover! I can’t even use normal makeup removers anymore because they just don’t work as well. Please please if you don’t already use this, TRY IT!

Avène Lotion Micellaire
I’m happy with any Avène cleanser to be honest, but at the moment I’m using the micellar lotion cleanser, which is just so soft and calming and smells nice too. My mom recommended this one to me a few months back and I can’t see any time soon where I didn’t use this anymore.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate
During the rough winter months, my skin really starts to dry out and play tricks on me. This is one of those miracle products that I use about once a week, and it just refreshes my skin overnight! You also have to use so little of it (I mix in a couple drops with my night cream) that it lasts forever!

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo[+]
Finally, for those certain times of the month where your skin, along with everything else, hates you a little (if you didn’t get that: PMS) my go-to product is Effaclar Duo+. I found this at my pharmacy in Belgium and very quickly got hooked, so thank god they sell in at Boots! You have to be careful because it can dry out your skin if you use it too much, but for those times where pimples are just showing up everywhere and you might just be tempted to call in sick, try this!
