For those of us with dry, sensitive skin, season changes undoubtedly cause a plethora of issues. As the weather gets colder and the boots and coats come out of hiding, I experience them at full-speed. Scaly legs? Check. Itchy, inflamed arms? Double check. I’m always looking for something to use in the shower that exfoliates without irritation, and the made-in-France Gentle Body Scrub by Avène has proven to be my skin’s new savior.
Having always been hesitant towards exfoliating beads due to their roughness, I found that the beads in Avène’s scrub were small enough that I barely even noticed they were there. I put the scrub on my loofah in the shower and instantly noticed a softness in my skin. The smell is sweet without being overpowering, and just a small amount of the scrub created a big lather. Avène’s products are hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, and are made with Avène Thermal Spring Water, soothing even the scaliest and most sensitive skin. It is safe to use once or twice a week and can be applied in the shower, directly before your normal moisturizing routine. A large bottle can be purchased online through drugstore.com or skinstore.com for just $20.
Lather up with this scrub, and surely your skin will say “oui, oui” just like mine did.
