Avene has always been a brand I wanted to try and in December, I caught this little baby on sale and had to get it because I totally don't already have enough lip balms to begin with (sarcasm!). This has been coming along in my purse every day since the purchase and it has really helped to keep my lips moisturized throughout the day.

The Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm has a scentless scent to it, if you know what I mean. I found it a little odd at first but eventually I just got used to it and it doesn't bother me anymore. I like that this comes in a stick form because it's quick and sanitary for on-the-go applications. A quick swipe will do and can definitely feel a difference right away. The formula is quite stiff and I like that it doesn't leave a tacky feeling to the lips like some lip balms do. It doesn't compare to the Nuxe Reve de Miel, but it's quite similar to the Caudalie Lip Conditioner which I quite enjoy. 

I believe this is about $10CAD at its original price which is quite similar to the Caudalie Lip Conditioner. For that price, I probably wouldn't repurchase it again as it's nothing too special and I prefer the Caudalie Lip Conditioner but it does go on sale again, I would pick it up. It does the job and does it well but I don't particularly prefer the scentless scent this has. I would recommend this for anyone who has dry lips though as a little product does go a long way with this and it's convenient to pop in your bag for daytime use.

Have you used the Avene Cold Cream Lip Balm before?


  1. I didn't even know Avene did a lip balm! I was prescribed some of their creams for my terrible dry skin, but the lipbalm looks lovely! I am looking for a replacement for my beloved Kiehls... Txx

  2. Didn't know this existed! Thanks for the review :)


  3. Sounds like a great product, although I don't think anything could beat the nuxe reve de miel lipbalm pot x


  4. i always love trying out new lipbalms, this one sounds really nice xxx


  5. Oh gosh I came across this brand in Paris 2 years ago when I stupidly forgot to bring lip balm in the icey cold. We ran to a pharmacy and this was the only one they did !! I really liked it and thought I was the only one who'd ever come across it haha, nice to know it has other people liking it too :)

  6. Looks like a good lip conditioner, I have never seen it before but I always like to have something like this on hand in case my lips get super dry!


  7. I could do with a clear lip balm - I tend to hoard tinted ones! I hope we can get this in the UK, I love Avene x

  8. This sounds really nice, I have yet to see that over here in the UK. I will keep my eye open for it :)

  9. The only issue I have with this balm is that if I build it up it leaves a white film over the lips which is NOT cute.. You have to be careful with it. But the formula is really nice in my opinion otherwise! x
