Being eczema-prone and having sensitive skin,I always stock up on my skincare so that when the time comes,I am battle ready .
Last year,I splurged on Avene products suited to my skin type,and bought this lip cream in that haul. I started using this lip cream since Jan 2016.
Avene has gained reputation in the dermatology area as it makes premium skincare for sensitive,acne-prone and atopic skin.It is a France-based company whose trademark product Avene thermal spring water garnered so many fans,me being one of them.
Recently,I am suffering from extremely dry lips and itchy lip corners due to matte lipsticks I was wearing daily.None of the usual lip balms I had been using were able to moisturise it for a long time.So I opened up this tube and saw its goodness from the first usage.
Availability: It is available only online as far I know. In India,it is very costly due to import costs,so I got my tube from UAE.
Here are the links:
Amazon.in-Avene Cold Cream Lip Cream
Price and quantity: INR 1281 according to Amazon.in as I trust it shows the genuine MRP for India.(I am not biased,if you are thinking that way. )The tube has 15 ml product,which according to me is very less for the price offered.If someone has dry lips,they will apply this many times ,so this will get finished very easily. 😦 I usually prefer budget lip balms for this reason.
If you have someone living abroad,tell them to buy it for you.
Ingredients: Long list so attached the picture . 😛
Packaging: Comes in a white cardboard box bearing the usual instructions,price,quantity and ingredients. Mind you! Most of it is written in French.The lip cream comes in white tube,like the Himalaya lip balm.You have to squeeze it for the product to come out.During harsh winters,the lip cream refused to come out,which I found time consuming.
Texture and fragrance: Looks exactly like petroleum jelly and smells like it too.It is thicker than other lip balms as during summers,it doesn’t go runny like Vaseline .Also it thickens more in winters.
Description and when to use:
My views:I will jot it down in short as its just a lip balm. 😛
-Moisturises the lips for a long time (6-7 hours without heavy meals and 4+ hours with meals and drinking.)
-Thicker consistency so will stay on your lips more.
-Very small size and sturdy packaging-travel friendly.
-Glides on the lips easily.
-Expensive for the quantity.
-Thicker consistency means it doesn’t come out of the tube easily.
-Available only online.
Will I recommend? Yes! For sensitive skin people only as we have very less options in India.I guess beauty comes at a price.I would rate it 4/5.Packaging can be improved.
