Key ingredients

Unique ‘Sterile Cosmetics’ process eliminates the need for preservatives (including hidden preservatives like alcohol).
Thermal Spring Water calms and cools irritated skin.
Glycerine hydrates intensely whilst boosting skin’s moisture barrier.
Mineral Oil creates a barrier on the skin’s surface, eliminating water loss and dehydration.


How to use

  • Cleanse skin and pat dry.

Who is Avene Skin Recovery Cream for?

This product is suitable for all ages, skin types, and genders. Those with easily irritated skin who are looking for a product low in ingredients to minimise potential reactions will benefit most from the use of this product.


Why is the skin’s moisture barrier important?

The skin’s moisture barrier, or the outermost layer of the epidermis, is important to skin health because it protects skin from moisture loss, environmental damage, and microbial invasion. This barrier is the skin’s first line of defense against damage and dehydration. Keeping the moisture barrier healthy and functional is vital to optimal skin health and beauty.

This product is really rich and creamy but it doesn’t leave the skin oily at it. Because it is quite pricey, I only apply it on my T zone where I have Rosacea. I have only been using it for a few days but already my skin feels really hydrated, soft, and the redness has lessened. I use the thermal water before applying this cream and I love it.

Morning ritual moisturiser - 20-11-2018 by

I have combo dehydrated skin with rosacea around the upper cheekbones. This is a great moisturiser for the summer when you want a hydrating product that doesn't build up on your oily areas. Really great and balancing for people with combo skin struggling to find a good moisturiser. It's also airtight so a big plus if you have sensitive skin too.

Great gentle moisturiser - 02-11-2018 by

This moisturiser has been fantastic for my combination type skin. I find it is very soothing for the drier parts of my face and not too heavy over the oiler regions. You don't need much for great moisturising effect, otherwise it can feel a bit heavy if you apply too much. Will definitely buy again!

a must for sensitive skin! - 31-10-2018 by

if you have irritable, sensitive skin that breaks out or (worse!) has allergic reactions to perfumed creams, this is the one for you. it does not irritate skin and keeps you hydrated and perfectly balanced. good to use under makeup as well.

best face cream I've ever used. - 24-10-2018 by

I developed extremely sensitive skin & acne rosacea after my second child 8yrs ago & have tried,what feels like every single product to help calm my skin.Nothing ever really worked & would either make no difference at all OR it would make my skin flare up like crazy! I loved the reviews on this cream & already use their springwater mist & love it & decided I'd give this a try...I am so glad I did! It is the first moisturiser I have ever used that 1.Doesnt aggravate my skin in any way...2.calms it & minimises the redness & bumps SO well! & 3.keeps my skin hydrated like no other product I have ever used before.I plan on buying this moisturiser & this one only for the rest of my life lol.

Very hydrating - 24-10-2018 by

It does what it says! Very hydrating and soothing, and I did not experience any breakouts. However, I personally think it was quite expensive for 50ml.

For night time use - 19-10-2018 by

I found this cream was fantastic for moisturising my dehyrdated skin (I work full time in a highly air-conditioned building which dries out my skin, hair etc!) - however I did find it too much to wear under make up - better as a night cream.My skin reacts badly to so many products & finally I have found a cream that suits me. I have noticed a big difference in my skin after only a week of using the product and I cant recommend it highly enough!

awesome - 18-10-2018 by

great moisturiser that really repairs damaged, dry skin. just lovely.

Soft skin - 10-10-2018 by

Makes my skin feel so soft and sinks right in without leaving an oily residue. All avene products seem to be suitable for sensitive skin.

My HG moisturiser !! - 01-10-2018 by

I'm on the 'other' side of 50...just.
Have tried every moisturiser on the market my whole life, & battling periodic/ongoing childhood & adult acne, now menopausal flare ups & peri-oral dermatitis.
I decided to use this cream consistently as my moisturiser morning & night for the last 6 months.
I also stopped using all the active anti-age serums , Niacinamide, vitamin C's, Retinal based products etc.& basically ....well, pared down my skincare regime to ....basic.
I feel women have been coned into putting way too much on our faces & our skin sometimes just doesn't k now how to function in it's own natural cycle anymore.
This cream is calming, soothing, goes well under makeup, a few powder pats throughout the day can mattify any oily areas.
My skin has barely had one pimple, one flareup since. My face always looks 'dewy' & plump by morning.
If I try any other new product which may cause pimples, I stop it & use this again for a few days & my skin calms down.
No it doesn't 'shrink' pores or lighten sun spots or reduce fine lines & wrinkles.
But what it does do, is just simply moisturise my skin & gives it a healthy glow.
I've lost count of what No. tube I'm on.

Great for dry, sensitive skin - 21-09-2018 by

This is a beautiful day moisturiser. I found it reduced redness in the skin, was hydrating, and sat so well under makeup. It is a fairly light moisturiser but was great for my dry skin. Really lovely product.

A great day moisturiser - 04-09-2018 by

This moisturiser goes great with the sunscreen from Avène. Used in the morning, it soaks into my skin quickly and doesn’t look greasy. It also goes well under make up. Would recommended!

Amazing! - 14-08-2018 by

Had my doubts but this is amazing for my dehydrated and oily skin! I've tried so many moisturisers and oils and none ever really worked for me. Some were too greasy, made me break out, too chemically, too organic or didn't have enough barrier protection to keep my skin hydrated. This is a total god-send! It calms and protects the skin and retains moisture from any serums you use before, leaving the skin smooth and plump!. It doesn't leave you too shiny or greasy and it the perfect make up base. Buy the tube and never look back!

Miracle worker - 02-06-2018 by

I am on norspan patches for chronic pain and after the week my skin in that area is red, hot, sore, itchy and very angry. I’ve been prescribed almost every cortisone/steroid cream available and the best I get is a healing time of a week minimum. I found avene whilst waiting for another steroid cream to be prescribed, and after two days the rash had completely disappeared. This cream is an absolute godsend! If you have any kind of skin condition please give this a go. It’s heaven to sore skin and the thick, pleasant smelling cream is a blissful and more effective alternative to awful chemical smelling steroid creams. You absolutely won’t regret it!!!

perfect for sensitive skin - 23-05-2018 by

My skin goes through periods where anything will just irritate it, this has worked wonders on my sensitive skin, this is my third repurchase love it.

A must have in my bathroom drawer - 25-02-2018 by

This is the best product for sensitive skin. When I get dry patches or areas of rosacea pop up, I use this immediately and find it works wonders. I use only when required

Great for Winter - 28-01-2018 by

This is perfect for the winter time when your skin becomes more dry. It does a good job of healing and soothing the skin without inflaming or causing itchiness to the skin.

Amazing- worked instantly - 13-11-2017 by

I have combination-dry skin and am prone to breaks outs around my jaw, chin and neck.
I use a prescription, my skin gets so flakey, dry and irritated.
this moisturizer is like a dream come true. it instantly made my skin feel soothed and i only had to apply it once in the morning and my skin didn't dry out or get flakey for the whole day!
It didn't make my skin feel oily or cause me to have break outs either.
this stuff is the best ever!!

I love pretty much everything Avène sells - 02-10-2017 by

I had to go on accurate a harsh drug to get rid of hormonal pimples. After going on this my skin was so dry and sensitive even natural skincare products weren’t working and my dermatologist gave me a few sample bags with different brands of things and a few had Avène things and it was the online thing my skin could folerate for that 8 month period. This is an amazing cream because it really does recover your skin without causing irritation. This is great for sensitive skin but all skin types. My mother tried it and she has dry older skin and saw a difference in her skin texture after just one use. My sister is now hooked on everything Avène!
