Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum.

This time of year my skin has a bit of a melt down. It doesn't seem to cope very well with the change over from central heating to air conditioning at work and starts to get all sorts of dry patches and flaky skin. That's where the Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum* comes in. This serum is designed to sit under your moisturiser to give an added moisture boost to your skincare regime.

This is a clear serum with a gel-like texture, I have to immediately apply moisturiser after this as it can leave my face a little sticky. My make up goes on well after using this and a moisturiser combined and my skin seems to be adapting to the air-con blasting away, without flaking off. I've only been using this on a morning as I use a facial oil before bed and think that would result in a little moisturiser over-kill if I used both together. 

Unfortunately, this has been breaking me out a little bit. Just those really tiny pimples but enough for me to notice. With that in mind, this serum is going to be put aside for those days where my skin is in desperate need for a moisture boost.

You can pick up this serum and other Avene products from Escentual here.

Have you tried this?

  1. I've been testing this out too but it's not broken me out at all, I do like it a lot! Hopefully if you persevere with it it will do a bit of good!

  2. Thats a shame this broke you out. Just goes to show skincare is so personal. My skin has been so dry these past few months too & thats so unlike me. Odd

  3. i absolutely LOVE the avene brand. i've found this product has worked quite well for me
