Review: Avene Skin Recovery Cream

Product Info (credit: avene.co.uk):
Calming cream specifically designed for naturally sensitive skin (fair, thin, prone to redness), or skin which has become sensitised due to climatic conditions, excessive cleansing, drying cosmetic or dermatological treatments. It quickly calms irritation, helps restore the hydrolipidic film and provides long-lasting protection. Its formula has been specially developed with a minimum of ingredients, all selected for their gentleness. Free from paraben, fragrance and colouring agents.

Review:
I have used about 3 or 4 tubes of Avene Skin Recovery Cream now, also known as Cream for Intolerant Skin in the US. There is another Rich version of the cream that I have also used and will review later. 

 I started using Avene Skin Recovery Cream when I got a very bad eczema outbreak. I still have my eczema and I like Avene Skin Recovery Cream because it doesn't irritate my skin further. There is no stinging sensation or redness even when applied at the eczema areas. It does help to soothe my eczema but I need something oilier on top as the areas are usually very dry. I usually layer with either Avene Instant Smoothing Moisture Mask or Avene Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream, both are oilier creams which I do not use daily. Avene Skin Recovery Cream can be used daily as it is a moisturizer. 


The Skin Recovery Cream spreads very easily and absorbs fast. There is no sticky sensation when applied and it leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated.  The cream is not oily, it feels more water based and soothes my skin well. Avene Skin Recovery Cream is good if you have eczema skin/sensitive or irritated skin like mine.


All in all, I am satisfied with this cream as it is a simple, basic hydrating cream which does not irritate my eczema and is suitable for my skin type. I have been re-purchasing many times and I even have spares of this tube so that I never run out. 


The cream does not come cheap, it is S$40+ for one 30ml tube, so it is best to stock up during a sale or buy them from hospital pharmacies where they are sold at a cheaper price.
