Avene Tolerance Control Soothing Skin Recovery Cream Review

Avene Tolerance Control Soothing Skin Recovery Cream Review

If your skin is unpredictable, your skincare routine shouldn’t be. Avene have just relaunched their iconic Recovery Cream (the moisturiser for reactive skin types), and it’s going to steal the hearts of those with sensitive skin all over again; here’s why…


The Most Important Thing About The Avene Recovery Cream Is…

It calms uncomfortable, tingly, hot and itchy skin in just 30 seconds, all thanks to D-Sensinose, an ultra-calming postbiotic active ingredient. It also contains the iconic Avene ingredient, Avene Thermal Spring Water, to hydrate skin for 24 hours; plus, it promises to restore the skin’s barrier in just 48 hours.


What Skin Type Is It For?

Dry, very sensitive, reactive, intolerant and allergy-prone skin.


You Will Love This If…

You have sensitive skin and find it difficult to find formulas that don’t upset your fragile complexion. Also, if you were a fan of the previous Recovery Cream, you’ll adore this version; it’s new and improved.


Hero Ingredients:

Avene Thermal Spring Water can be found in every Avene product, and this is no exception; the powerhouse water is included to offer your skin 24-hour hydration. The star ingredient, however, has to be D-Sensinose; this patented active calms skin in 30 seconds and helps rebuild the skin barrier in only 48 hours.

What Does It Feel Like?

Avene’s Skin Recovery Cream feels really cooling on the skin as soon as you apply it. Its texture sits in between a lotion and a balm, which is neither too runny nor too thick. It works into the skin with no trouble at all, but it isn’t so lightweight that you can’t feel its moisturising effect on your complexion.


What Does It Smell Like?

This product is fragrance-free; as it has no added artificial scent, it’s even more gentle on sensitive skin!


How Do You Use The Product?

Use the Skin Recovery Cream morning and night by applying to the face and neck as the final step in your skincare routine.


What’s Special About The Design?

It’s the innovative Sterile Cosmetics packaging; the airtight cap keeps the formula sterile throughout use, ensuring high tolerance and optimal hygiene as it protects the formula against outside air and bacteria.



Fragrance-free and preservative-free.
