People suffering from dry skin,sensitive skin and eczema-prone people swear by this brand.So last year,I also took the plunge and introduced this in my skincare.To be honest,the products have improved my skin texture,reduce redness and itching and control the symptoms to some extent.However,the cream was too rich to be used during the day,so I had to be patient while using them.I have a done a review on some of the products from the Trixera+ selectiose range of Avene.I will link them below.
Recently,when I saw,Avene has come up with a new product for us people,I knew I have to get it.It is the Xeracalm AD cream ,balm and cleansing oil.I bought only the cream for myself after reading about them.
Availability: It is available mostly online everywhere.I got mine from UAE.But I just found out,this particular item is cheaper in India. 😛 I will provide all the links below.Rest of the world can find it in stores or Boots.
Price & quantity: Varies everywhere but it is a 200ml product which will last you a long time.
Packaging: Comes in the usual tube form with fliptop cap.It has a different opening mechanism as in you press the tube and a seal comes up as you keep on pressing.The product gradually comes up.The moment you stop squeezing,the seal goes back,but the product stays.This prevent contamination with the remaining cream.I give 5 star rating to this package.Very travel-friendly and hygienic. 🙂 Usage instructions are given on the tube and the box it comes in.Detailed ingredients are given on the box and it has a small pamphlet inside it.
Texture & fragrance: No smell at all.It is a very thick cream actually but the beauty of it lies after application.It looks like it will stay on top of the skin,but leave it,and within a moment,the cream gets absorbed and your skin looks dewy instead of matte or greasy.I like this actually.Perfect for day time.Just pat it gently on the dry areas and bam!its gone.Kudos!to the texture.
Ingredients: See for yourself.I went through all of them and pleased to see 90% ingredients comes from plants and so called microorganisms. 😛 I will try giving a brief info on the unknown ingredients.This cream boasts of no paraben & preservatives. Isn’t that amazing?
cetearyl alcohol-These are fatty alcohols,conditions and softens the skin.
caprylic triglyceride-derived from coconut oil and glycerine,emollient
cetearyl glucoside-Can be obtained from cetearyl alcohol or coconut oil.Helps in mixing of oils in water.
Aquaphilus dolomiae- It is a bacteria found in thermal springs.Anti-irritating and soothing.
Arginine-Boosts collagen and heals wounds
Carbomer-Gives the creamy texture to the product.
Tocopherol-Vit E…You know it.
My views: I have used it and I fell in love with it.I dab it in the places of dryness and it gets absorbed easily and gives that dewy finish.
Even though its written that its good for severe dryness,but I feel the balm will work better for excessive dryness.This cream is good for sensitive skin and moderate to mild dryness.
It does reduce the itching sensation that I have due to my eczema patches on the face.
It also reduces redness due to rashes or sensitivity.Overall it gives a soothing effect to the skin.
This cream doesn’t cure the eczema or rashes but it will make it bearable so that we don’t scratch the skin or infect it.I will suggest everyone to try this who share dry skin issues.This cream is good for babies as well due to absence of preservatives and parabens.
