Avene A-Oxitive Skincare Prize Pk

It’s no longer a secret how effective vitamin C and E is on our skin. There are numerous skin care products on the market that add these vitamins to their own formula. Some are effective, others are not. I recently heard about Eau Thermale Avene new product launch that uses vitamin C and E to improve, enhance and restore our skin.

Their BODY & A-Oxitive that has its own unique patented delivery system that has shown promising results. Their exclusive technology boosts skin’s defense by neutralizing free radicals caused by environmental and lifestyle stressors. This advanced formula also helps prevent visible signs of aging and leaves your skin smooth and radiant.

Eau Thermale Avène Body 

Urban Shield care. Preserve your youthful glow.

As many know, Vitamin C oxidizes when exposed to air, and it takes 20 minutes for a product to be absorbed by the skin, so if the product is not protected by the time it is absorbed into the skin it has lost its efficacy. That’s why Avène has patented a system to coat the product so that it keeps the ingredients fresh while they are being absorbed into the skin.

Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is an antioxidant that helps slow down the aging process. It also helps our bodies make collagen, which is a protein that has the ability to promote cell and blood vessel growth, provide elasticity to our skin and gives it firmness and strength. Vitamn C also reduces fine lines and wrinkles, helps heal inflammatory conditions, helps prevent cellulite and aids in skin repair.

Vitamin E is another beneficial antioxidant that has positive effects on the skin. It defends our skin from free radicals, pollution and UV exposure which contribute to wrinkles and brown spots. It also protects cell membranes and acts as a barrier to keep your skin supple and moisturized.

Combine these two powerful antioxidants along with thermal spring water rich in minerals, and you have a potent skincare defense system like the new products from Eau Thermale Avene’s BODY & A-Oxitive.

Avène Gentle Body Scrub

Avène Gentle Body Scrub

I love the Avène Gentle Scrub. Its lovely fragrance is created with a fusion of three relaxing scents, rose, jasmine, and bergamot. It’s lightweight and has very little suds. You can feel all the tiny non-abrasive jojoba wax beads working to exfoliate and your cleanse your skin. It also contains Camelina, Shea, and Safflower oils which help restore, smooth and nourish the skin.

I use the Gentle Scrub in the evening and I like how it leaves my skin super soft and clean. No dryness or itchiness, just smooth and supple skin. I followed this gentle exfoliating treatment with more of the A-Oxitive products.

Avène Skin Care Oil

Avène Skin Care Oil

The Avène Skin Care Oil has the same delicate fragrance that is soothing to the soul. It’s a non-greasy, non-sticky dry oil that has a multitude of functions. It provides antioxidant protection, helps nourish the skin and enhances its natural radiance. If you have dry hair like me, you can add a small amount for some nourishment and added shine. I actually tried this, and I was surprised that my hair didn’t look or feel greasy. It added a subtle shine that looked natural. If you use it on your skin, it will absorb very quickly and leave it velvety soft.

A-OXitive Antioxidant Defense Serum &
A-OXitive Antioxidant Water-Cream

Two Complimentary Products that Protect the Skin from Environmental Stresses!

A-OXitive Antioxidant Defense Serum

Avene A-OXitive Antioxidant Defense Serum

The Serum Defense formula has a lot of attributes. It’s fast absorbing, lightweight, protects the skin, and our complexions will look noticeably fresher, younger and more radiant.

  • Time-released Vitamin C and E precursors provide a continuous shield against oxidative stress
  • Lightweight, delicately scented formula provides 24-hour hydration
  • Visibly blurs imperfections, pores, fine lines and wrinkles
  • Visibly plumps the skin
  • Airless pump packaging protects formula from oxidizing, ensuring optimal efficacy

My mom has been using this serum for about a week now and she sees signs of improvement in not only her wrinkles, but in the texture of her skin. It’s quite a bit softer and smoother. It’s hard to discern how her skin has improved, whether it’s fewer fine lines or smaller pores, her skin just looks better. She likes the option of locking the pump so the serum doesn’t oxidize. She also appreciates the price, it’s only $44 compared to her previous serum which cost more than twice.

A-OXitive Antioxidant Water-Cream

Avene A-OXitive Antioxidant Water-Cream

The Water Cream is also a multipurpose cream rich in hydrating ingredients that helps support collagen and brighten the skin while remaining gentle enough for sensitive skin. One unique ingredient is Mother-of-pearl, an energizing molecule that helps the skin amp up its natural defense against free radicals. It also has Hyaluronic Acid which provides our skin with intense hydration. Most skincare products contain hyaluronic acid because of its skin benefits. It reduces those pesky fine lines and noticeable wrinkles, pacifies dry skin, and even accelerates wound healing. It can also help relieve joint pain in people with osteoarthritis.

  • Time-released Vitamin C and E precursors provide a continuous shield against oxidative stress
  • Lightweight, delicately scented formula provides 24-hour hydration
  • Provides 24-hour hydration
  • Airless pump packaging protects formula from oxidizing, ensuring optimal efficacy

I personally like its aromatic scent and how lightweight it feels on the skin. It flows on silky and absorbs almost instantaneously leaving a smooth and soft surface. If I had to say anything negative, it would be that a few of my family members could not use these products because the scent is so strong. It doesn’t bother me, but they were sneezing and tearing up. My mom and I like this line of skincare and we see the benefit of using a brand that produces results.
