The product

Ever had skin so dehydrated and dry that it gets sensitive? 

If you can identify with the above statement then we need to introduce you to a good friend of ours. Say hello to the Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Boost Concentrated Hydrating Serum

Formulated with dehydrated and sensitive skin types in mind, this lightweight hydrator utilises hyaluronic acid and vitamin B3 (AKA niacinamide) to simultaneously hydrate and strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier. The result? A glowy, plump and bouncy complexion. 

Plus, the non-sticky texture means you can glide this on before makeup and enjoy moisturised skin all day, thank to a formula that promises hydration up to 48 hours after application. We like those numbers. 

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this hydrating and sensitive skin-friendly serum.  

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Boost Concentrated Hydrating Serum to a panel of women aged 18 to 30 with dehydrated and sensitive skin. 

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Eau Thermale Avène Hydrance Boost Concentrated Hydrating Serum.

The non-sticky finish: A lot of traditional hyaluronic acid serums can leave the skin feeling sticky or tacky, but according to our reviewers, this serum does not do that. Many described it as lightweight, and said that it glided easily onto the skin. 

It hydrated their skin without irritating it: Our panel of reviewers experience dehydrated and sensitive skin, which means that while hyaluronic acid may be intended to hydrate, certain formulas can also irritate their skin. But this serum helped to hydrate their skin and soothe it simultaneously. 

It revitalised their glowy, plump complexion: Reviewers really liked that the serum included hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. They said the combination of the two helped to revitalise their complexion, and left their skin looking glowy and plump all day long. 

The verdict

“I usually have quite dry and dehydrated skin. Using this serum I quickly noticed a big difference in my skin texture! I love that this serum combines hyaluronic acid with vitamin b3 for that extra boost in skin glow. Using this in my morning skin care routine, I found the serum allowed my makeup to sit nicely on my skin. My skin is super hydrated and looking revitalised after using this product, and I will definitely be keeping this as a permanent part of my skincare routine.”

“This serum is perfect for anyone with dehydrated sensitive skin, providing a whopping 48 hours of intense hydration. The fresh, light water-infused texture feels like a refreshing drink for my skin, and the addition of Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin B3 ensures my skin stays hydrated and healthy. The ultra-light, non-sticky formula glides on effortlessly, instantly reviving and smoothing my complexion. One of the most impressive aspects of this serum is its ability to restore my skin's water balance, leaving it soft, comfortable, soothed, and supple.”

“I have never used such a light serum with this amount of hydration. So comfortable and light on the skin and left my cheeks feeling soft and plump all day! I used it most nights and my skin woke up not feeling dry/dehydrated at all. I have been using the Hydrance Boost Concentrated serum consecutively for the last couple weeks and overall I really like how it sits on my skin. The formula is very light weight and hydrating and feels fresh. I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry patches around my nose and I feel the serum has really helped to balance my skin's hydration as my dry patches are minimal now and makeup sits well.”
