I am smitten with a new nighttime moisturizer. I never thought I would stray from my standby, CeraVe PM, but I have found another option that is packed with ceramides. Ceramides help extra-dry skin recover and stay moisturized. Avene Rich Compensating Cream* provides smooth, creamy and pleasant smelling moisture, and it is quickly making it’s way into my evening skin care ritual.
Avene is a company that stresses hypoallergenic options for skin cleansing and skin beauty. They have always impressed me with quality, not flashy, products. The whipped texture of this cream goes on easily, and it doesn’t take much to cover my face and neck. My favorite part of this product is its light fragrance. I, like many human beings, like to put something pleasant smelling on my face to top off my nighttime routine. Yes, sometimes the ingredients used to make a nice smell can make a product irritating to your skin. But Avene has tried to avoid the most common culprits, and only the most sensitive faces would have to avoid this product. I like being able to give people an option that has a fragrance because a good smell is a nice reward for taking care of your skin. Who doesn’t want a reward?
*As always, I am in no way compensated, encouraged or otherwise influenced by the companies that make any of these products. I just buy ’em and try ’em.
