AVÈNE HYDRANCE OPTIMALE RICH MOISTURISER
This is all about anti-radical action, and shields skin from pollution, cold and stress, while quenching it with Avène thermal spring water and safflower oil to leave it feeling peachy-soft.
EXPERT TIP Always apply moisturiser after your skin is still damp from a wash. It’s far less effective on dry skin.
Reader test “I love this because it’s got great ingredients but is surprisingly affordable.”
