Gentle and effective

This serum is very gentle on my sensitive skin and feels hydrating. It has a light texture sinks in quickly. I really feel that it has helped to brighten and even out my skin tone.

Wanted to like it

Really enjoyed the texture of this and liked the way my skin looked. But I found the 'french pharmacy' fragrance irritated my eyes. Not usually super sensitive but I haven't used many Avene products so there must be something in there.

  2. Effective

    Stella

    This is a good serum for hydration and brightening skin. The packaging is great-totally airtight. This works as well as products which are much more expensive.
  3. Really nice

    S

    I’ve been meaning to try this for ages, and finally decided to purchase the Oxitive serum along with the water cream. Firstly I love the light scent of this serum, and the consistency reminds me of the Avene Hydrance serum. It melts in nicely and does not aggravate my skin at all. I have noticed a slight brightness in my complexion since using. A really nice boost to my skin in the morning.

  5. Average

    Georgie

    verified purchaser
    I was a bit disappointed with this as I love Avene but this didn’t really work for me. I didn’t really notice much difference after using it and my skin didn’t feel moisturised at all. I have very sensitive dry skin so I wouldn’t recommend for that but I imagine it would be nice for normal skin.
  6. Hydrating

    Gingersk

    I didn’t notice any dramatic changes to my skin but it smelt nice and absorbed easily as left my skin feeling super hydrated.
  7. Super impressed

    Chloe

    Super impressed with this serum - it's lightweight and the texture is more of a soft cream than a serum. It soaks straight in and leaves skin feeling fresh. I have sensitive skin so I love that the active ingredients are released gradually and I haven't experienced any irritation. I used it with the smoothing water every morning.
  8. Silky and smooth

    Shaz

    this would have to be one of the best serums on the market. smooth silky and light. I found my skin to really lap up the moisture and it has improved so much in such a little amount of time.
  9. Beautiful serum

    Nessieduck

    as soon as i applied the serum my skin felt great. after a week, my skin looked and felt much clearer and brighter. my skin tone seems much better too.

  16. Hydrating and Gentle

    Taijack

    I was given some samples of this serum to trial and have been using them for the past 6 weeks. It was nice to apply and absorbed nicely without leaving any stickiness. It was gentle on my skin and I would purchase this product for future use.
  17. Would recommend

    Krystle

    I adore this serum. I’ve been using it for two weeks (received several samples) in combination with the Soothing water cream and my skin feels hydrated and has a glow to it. Not a huge fan of the smell but I’m loving the results so far.
  18. Gentle on your skin.

    Cpale

    Really liked this, felt quite soothing. Non greasy and light, but felt like it was quite rich as well.
  24. Received a sample, now I will buy it

    Jennrad

    lovely slightly herbal smell, I want to say 'dill-like'? leaves my skin hydrated but not greasy or oily. Paired with the serum, it is an easy and effective moisturizing routine
  25. Love this serum

  28. So fresh and smooth

    Aline

    I haven't been into serums very much but after trying this one I think I'm hooked! It smells so fresh and goes on smooth with no pilling or rubbing off later. It leaves my skin silky and almost bouncy. I don't feel awake until I use this now!
  29. Im impressed!

    Courtz23

    Lovely serum, most I’ve used prior to this feel oily and make you appear shiny. This serum was light and absorbed quickly and easily leaving no unpleasant film or oily feeling to my face. Soft, pleasantly scented.
  30. Serum Goodness

    Simmone

    After 10 days of using it, my skin is brighter and smoother then it usually is. Both the serum and day cream are great, so lightweight and never feel oily. My skin tends to dry out servely during cooler weather. So i was excited to try this and the results have proven great!
  31. So smooth

    Ytaylor86

    My skin is left feeling very smooth and hydrated..
    I love the light fragrance and the way my skin feels.
  32. Oh so smooth!

    Kate erin Richards

    oh so smooth! it's fast absorbing and leaves my skin feeling hydrated, without feeling heavy and oily. I have noticed those pesky little fine lines are less noticeable too!
  33. Overall amazing

    RachelKate93

    This serum is fantastic! it was incredibly hydrating even on my nose that was irritated and flaky from constantly blowing my nose from a head cold, it didn’t sting and revived my nose instantly. The serum was lightweight and had an amazing light fragrance to it
  34. Amazing

    Kirby

    I have been trialing this and I am so in love with this product. I suffer from mild rosacea and within 3 days I was able to notice a major difference in a reduced redness in my skin. I will definitely be buying this.
  35. So hydrating

    Zm28

  36. Smooth and glowy

    Steph1224

    The Avène A-Oxitive Smoothing Water Cream is exactly how it sounds. It feels beautiful and light on the skin but still leaves it feeling soft and hydrated and the fragrance is very subtle and fresh
  37. Only ok for me

    Ella 02

    A lovely formula, nice and light but didn’t agree with my skin unfortunately. While I cannot say 100% it is the serum/cream, a bad flare up did coincide with using it and settled after I stopped.
    It is fragrant/contains parfum and since I have been on the natural/organic skin care bandwagon for a while, i don’t like that ingredient in it.

  41. Super smooth

    Jacquii

    I really loved this product, it was soo beautiful to apply. Had a lovely fresh cucumber like fragrance to it, a great wake up to the skin in the morning. It is incredibly lightweight and gave my skin a gorgeous fresh glossy look. Love that it is packed full of vitamin c! Would definitely use this product again.
  42. Very hydrating

    MaddieW

    I have been impressed by the Avene A-Oxitive Antioxidant Defence Serum. Although I have not noticed a change to my skin’s texture, brightness or general appearance, the serum easily soaks into my skin and feels like a hydrating addition to my skin care routine. A little goes a long way, which is something that I appreciate in my skin care products.

  43. Amazing serum

    Jaci

    very light delicate fragrance, soothing and very hydrating for my sensitive skin. makes my skin look and feel amazing throughout the day. amazing under make up. only downside was i need a bigger bottle as the little samples I received to trial aren't big enough. I Love and highly recommend this product. doesn't clog pores and feels so silky when absorbed.
  44. It smells nice and feels nice going on.

    Ace19

    I’ve been using this for two weeks and I’m such a fan. My skin feels more hydrated than it’s ever felt.
  45. Strong scent

    LB

    I enjoy that it smells so much nicer than most other vitamin C serums however I do think the fragrance is a bit too strong. it has definitely smoothed my skin, although the extra hyaluronic acid has caused a few minor breakouts.
  46. Light and hydrating

    qq

    It's really light weight and hydrating! I will definitely recommend.
  47. Best serum I've used

    Melt91

    This serum is the best I've tried to date. It's not heavy or oily like some other brands I've tried. It's light but super hydrating, after cleansing, my skin soaks it straight in leaving a light subtle glow.
    I've been using it for just over a week now twice a day in conjunction with the smoothing water cream and my skin has honestly never looked better.
    I'm in love!

  50. Great Hydrator

    Empressed

    I really enjoyed this serum, especially when paired with the water cream. It was light weight and a little bit went a long way. It had a mild perfume but it wasn’t unpleasant and it didn’t irritate my skin. The water cream was a little heavier but left my skin feel smooth and hydrated. Both products were easily absorbed :)
  51. Best for winter skin! Worth every penny!

  52. Refreshingly smooth skin

    Tarraise

    I've loved trialling the serum over the last 2 weeks.
    The serum is not quite the texture I was expecting.
    When I think serum I think of an oil type texture. This one is more of a light cream.
    It smells quite nice. I'm not sure if it's scented but it smells like a gentle moisturiser type smell.
    My skin can be quite temperamental during the change of season and cold weather...

    I don't usually like serums, as they often leave the skin feeling greasy and sticky. However my skin feels absolutely incredible after using the Defence Serum. It has given my skin incredible hydration without leaving it feeling heavy. My skin appears plump and fresh, the way it used to look in my teen years. I didn't think it was possible to have skin like this again at my age. I am so happy with...

  61. Hydrating Serum!

    Rachie

    I really like the serum, although my usual skin care routine has serums with active ingredients, so by the second week of the trial I noticed the issues I used to treat were coming through, so I used the serum less.
    if there are no specific concerns for skin, then this is a lovely serum. it’s hydrating, goes further than my other liquid serums and gives my skin hydrated and dewy skin!
  62. Fresh and Rejuvenated

    Littlepotts

    Easy to apply, smooth and refreshing. Smells amazing and no irritations with use. Feeling rejuvenated and fresh.

    Serum smells celestial. Very pleasant to apply, it absorbs quickly and does not leave the skin heavy. Little goes a super long way. I have combo skin so was bit cautious at first but it have left pretty much good results on my skin with glow. I have notice it have smooths fine line and have brighten my skin. Will definitely buy full size of Serum.

    Em92

    Super lightweight Serum that soaks very well into skin, I have a super dry nose in winter and this serum isn’t drying it up before I moisturise. Great value for money, smallest bit of product is enough to cover whole face and décolletage. The Serum followed by the Smoothing water cream is the perfect combo and both sit well together under makeup!
