I had hoped that the Avene Hydrance Optimale Light would mark the end of my quest for a reasonably priced, yet good quality moisturiser. I have been dealt the card of difficult combination skin; which is oily all over, but with dry patches on the surface (weird, I know). Because of these two very different skin types, it is hard to find a moisturiser that will prevent me looking shiny, whilst also giving enough moisture to the dry patches on my nose and forehead. I had read many a rave review on this moisturiser, with bloggers claiming that it was very light in texture, whilst also being moisturising.
However, unfortunately for me, this moisturiser did not provide enough hydration to nourish the dry areas of my skin. The consistency is very light and sinks into the skin almost instantly, so it just didn’t provide adequate moisture on the drier areas of my skin. This cream would be perfect for someone with very oily skin, as it doesn’t feel at all greasy and gives a mattifying finish.
This lotion has a very pleasant, clean scent and is reasonably priced at £14 for 40ml, but unfortunately, I won’t be repurchasing.
