Summer is the season when your skin needs hydration without shine. Editor Trudi Brewer shares a whipped cream that melts into the skin, leaving immediate freshness and nourishing results.

Avène Hydrance Aqua Cream-in-Gel review by Beauty EQ.

What is it?

Avène Hydrance Aqua Cream-in-Gel, $59.
A very lightweight moisturiser that feels like a gel, yet performs like a rich cream once it melts into the skin. Best described as a multi-benefit moisturiser that can be used both in the morning and or at night.

How does it work?

For anyone who wants a hydrating, yet fresh boost of moisture this cream offers immediate, lasting hydration. It's designed to soothe and moisturise oily to normal, dry and especiallysensitive skins, while helping to protect your complexion from the drying and damaging effects that our environment throws at our skin each day. 

What's in it?

The base of this cream-gel is Avène Thermal Spring Water, along with soothing squalene, photostable vitamin E, pumpkin seed, and avocado oils. There are also two clever patented ingredients Meiboserine and Lipomucine that combined help the water penetrate and spread evenly over the skin, and lock it into the skin for hours of hydration. And if you imagine that these ingredients may leave a greasy-looking finish on the skin, there is also a mattifying extract found in pumpkin that prevents the look of a shiny complexion.

How do we use it?

It's a brilliant moisturiser to wake up the skin first thing with a fresh burst of hydration, and to nourish skin before you sleep. While the texture feels thick, the moment you press it on the skin it absorbs in seconds. It can be layered over your regular serums and face oils, and it's gentle enough to be used around the eye area without risk of dehydration. It is lightweight yet incredibly hydrating, and for us, it's the ideal primer for under foundation to create a luminous finish to your makeup.
