Avène Hydrance Aqua Cream-In-Gel Review

Avène Hydrance Aqua Cream-In-Gel Review

I've always loved Avène for their soothing skincare that manages to make my skin look so much better - even after one use. The Soothing Moisture Mask, specifically, has been mentioned on my site many times. When I saw their Hydrance Aqua Cream-In-Gel released earlier this summer, I knew I had to try it out. As I grow older, I realize that my sensitive, combo skin sometimes just needs a drink of water and a blanket of redness-reducing moisturizer before bed. No acids, no charcoal, no fuss. Here's how the two products compare, as I use them both as a before-bed restorative mask.

AVÈNE HYDRANCE AQUA CREAM-IN-GEL

AVÈNE HYDRANCE AQUA CREAM-IN-GEL 50ml

"An all-in-one care inspired by Asian galenics, formulated in Japan and made in France. Its very fresh aqua-gel texture leaves a delicate water-veil sensation."

I have to admit that it wasn't love at first swipe with this gelly cream product. I found it to be a bit sticky, and it didn't soak in as seamlessly as my Moisture Mask. After continued use, it is growing on me. I like that it comes with a spatula, though jar packaging is proven to be very unhygienic. This is a good option for oily or combination-skin people since it isn't too heavy. I like that is is marketed to be multi-functional, layering under makeup just as well as it layers as a final nighttime step. Not my ride-or-die, but a fun new release that's worth a shot.

AVÈNE THERMAL SPRING WATER SPRAY
"Avène Thermal Spring Water is captured directly at its source and bottled in a sterile environment, ensuring that all its soothing and softening properties are preserved."

I must include the classic Avène Thermal Water in this post since it truly enhances any moisturizing product you apply. It is recommended to spray an even layer of thermal water on the skin directly BEFORE and AFTER the application of Soothing Moisture Mask. Yes, it totally amps up the plump on your skin. The water acts as a vehicle to draw the moisturizer deeper into the skin, and really working to its full potential.

AVÈNE SOOTHING MOISTURE MASK 50ml

"A true moisture bath, leaves your skin refreshed and glowing. Paraben-free."

As mentioned, this Moisture Mask remains as one of my favourite skincare products ever. It smells almost like classic Nivea cream, and has the most milky, refreshing and calming texture. A gentle cream that soaks right in to heal and protect the skin, you will adore this. Guaranteed. I also like all of the basic day creams from the brand, which can be found in formulas for both combination and dry skins.
