If blood is to vampires and brain is to zombies, my aging skin craves for moisturrrreee. I’m talking about my body, my arms and legs to be more specific. I notice that body butter isn’t doing the job for me lately so I had to reassess my current skincare needs.
Drumroll to Avene Eau Thermale Body Oil ($24, 200ml). Marketed as a luxurious hydrating oil, it has Vitamins A and E to regenerate skin, avocado oil to nourish, and thermal spring water to soften skin.
Ingredients: Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, PEG 40 Sorbitan Peroleate, Persea Gratissima Oil (Avocado [Persea Gratissima]), Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract (Calendula Officinalis), Avena Thermal Spring Water, Fragrance, Retinyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate.
I like to apply this body oil right after shower or on damp skin. One pump is usually enough for each arm and leg. It dries fast and gets absorbed pretty quickly. It has floral fragrance which smells relaxing and lingers for few hours. It is more hydrating in comparison to L’Occitane Almond Skin Oil. The best part? I love the way it makes my gams and shoulders glisten, more like looking youthful! The only downside? I wish this product/brand is sold in more retail stores. Right now, I believe you can only get it online at Dermstore, Drugstore.com, and BeautyHabit.
SOS. Somebody needs moisture so freakin’ bad.
