Eau Thermale Avène Skin Recovery Cream

Best Night Cream for Dry, Sensitive Skin

Why people love it
  • Scentless and hypoallergenic formula
  • Calms irritated skin
  • Makes skin feel soft

It can often be hard to find a night cream (or any cream really) that won’t irritate your face when you’re already suffering from dry or sensitive skin. Thankfully, Avene’s Skin Recovery Cream does the trick by giving your face moisture without the harsh ingredients that cause those unsightly and uncomfortable reactions.

There have been some customers who complain about breaking out from this cream. In our experience, though, this may just be the first week or so of adjusting to a new nightly regimen. With such natural ingredients meant to actually ease discomfort, there shouldn't be much in the way of breakouts with this.


Benefits: As Bustle explained, “The formula is designed to repair overworked skin, calm irritation, and rebuild your moisture barrier.” In other words, if you’re tired of your sensitive or overly dry skin feeling worse after applying a night cream that’s supposed to do the opposite, then this is the one for you.

Skin Type: Sensitive skin. Dry skin. Overworked skin. Or maybe you just moved to a new climate and your skin isn’t adjusting well. If your skin needs some extra love and therapy, try Avene.

Price: It’s more expensive than some of the brands you’d find in the drug store, but it’s sure to give you better results.
