About Avène


From Avène
The heritage of dermo-cosmetic brand Eau Thermale Avène dates back over 260 years to the discovery of the curative properties in thermal water. Originating as rain, the water filters through the Cévennes Mountains absorbing precious minerals and trace elements for 40 years until it reaches the mouth of the ancient Sainte-Odile spring. The modern age of Avène began in 1975 when Pierre Fabre, the now second-largest, independent pharmaceutical company in France, acquired the spring and its surrounding land. The Avène Dermatological Hydrotherapy Center, based on these properties and the legacy of the first thermal establishment built there in 1743, welcomes up to 4,000 patients a year to its state-of-the-art medical facility to treat skin conditions in adults and children. Launched in 1990 the Eau Thermale Avène skincare brand was created to capture these same healing benefits to soothe sensitive skins worldwide. Avène is widely recognized as #1 in French pharmacies among dermo-cosmetic skincare brands and also the most recommended by European dermatologists.”

My Opinion

I was sent a full size version of both the Avène Cold Cream Lip Cream and the Cold Cream Lip Balm for review. Because of the drying effects to both my mouth and skin from the medication I take, I deal with dry, flaky lips all year long. Sometimes they crack so badly, they bleed, I know gross. So, I jumped at the chance to try these products, I was really intrigued by the ingredients, supposed benefits and the company itself. I was very impressed with both the quality and effects of both the lip cream and balm.

The benefits are immediate with both products. The lip cream is just that creamy, not greasy, and it really feels like you are applying a really great moisturizer to your lips. My favorite time to use it is in the morning after I brush my teeth and at night after my shower. I use just a tiny, tiny bit of my favorite scrub on my lips in the shower and then put the lip cream on when I get out. They feel so soft! The lip balm is completely weightless and not at all waxy like some can be, I use it during the day when I need to pamper my pout. These are excellent products made with amazing ingredients, and a little goes a long way, so they will last you a while.
