This Antioxidant Water-Based Cream Makes My Dry Skin Glow

If you have dry skin, you know that winter wrecks havoc. The cold temperatures and low humidity push my already uncomfortably tight-feeling skin over the edge into the dry and dehydrated category. No matter how much water I drink, how tepid the temperature of my shower is, how much caffeine I cut back on or how often I run a humidifier, my skin is parched for extra hydration. That’s where water-based skin care comes to the rescue. I always come back to Avène’s A-OXitive Antioxidant Water Cream ($50). Right now I happen to be stocking up—today is the last day of Avène’s Friends and Family sale where everything is 25% offwhen you spend $70 or more with the code WINTER25.

A-OXitive Antioxidant Water Cream is formulated with Avène’s legendary Thermal Spring Water that soothes and calms irritated skin, hyaluronic acid for intense hydration, and vitamins E and C—powerful antioxidants that pair perfectly together to provide protection against oxidative stress. Simply put, together these ingredients protect against free radicals, even tone, soften texture, fade acne scars, diminish fine lines and brighten, moisturize and heal irritated skin. To round out this incredibly nourishing and effective formula, illuminating mother of pearl immediately gives a lit-from-within glow.

Ever since I first tried this moisturizer a couple of years ago, it’s the skin savior I wear year round. As temperatures and humidity ramp up, it hydrates all day while never turning slick or greasy. In the winter, I wear it under a heavier cream for a much-needed extra dose of hydration.

The reviews are in.

Many reviews echo my sentiments on how moisturizing the Water Cream is, especially during the winter months. One user with“flaky dry” winter skin and “redness, dryness and lines on my forehead” said it’s “helping significantly.” A shopper in their 50s wrote the cream “drenched my skin with the hydration that it needs,” adding their face is now “clean, fresh and, glowing.” A separate reviewer with “very sensitive skin/mild rosacea” called the Water Cream “a miracle.” They continued, “Been using this for 3 weeks and I’m completely sold. I have a healthy glow again!” “This cream has improved my skin drastically! It looks hydrated, healthy, and has helped to even my skin tone,” raved another. A shopper in their 60s went so far as to say“I would want this water cream with me if I was stranded on a desert island.”
