Review: Avene XeraCalm A.D Cream and Cleansing Oil

Sometime ago, a beautifully package was sent to me. It was from Avene collaboration with Clozette ID. Avene Xeracalm A.D Lipid – Replenishing Cream, Xeracalm A.D Lipid – Replenishing Cleansing oil and a few travel size Micellar water. Everyday me and my husband come home from work, dreaming of the hot bath up, feeling so warm and cozy. You wearing your pajamas, and then you found out your skin is so dry and flaky like a snake skin. Frequent hot shower or baths can lead to dry, itchy skin, even rashes. Well I have found the best cleanser and moisturizing for my dry skin. I’m so relief they sent me a product that I searching for. Yes, it’s Avene Xeracalm A.D.

Before we get in to the details, let’s take a look to Avene Xeracalm A.D first. The series of Xeracalm A.D is made for specific skin tipe: Sensitive Skin, especially for dry skin. Xeracalm A.D, what it A.D? It stands for Atopic Dermatitis which is the alias name for eczema. This is common skin disease in children. Xeracalm A.D is safe for infants to adults. Xeracalm products are based on an innovating formula, I – Modulia, used to reduce itching, redness, and irritation from dry skin. It’s not only for body but it say for face and body.

Atopic dermatitis (AD), also known as atopic eczema, is a type of inflammation of the skin (dermatitis). It results in itchy, red, swollen, and cracked skin.

Avene Xeracalm A.D Lipid – Replenishing Cream

Xeracalm cream is a face and body moisturizing cream for sensitive skin especially for extreme dry skin. It’s ALLURE’s 2016 Best of Beauty Winner: Best Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin! First of all, I love that the cream has not using any preservatives, no parabens, fragrance free and no alcohol at all. Not only that, it claims it’s hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.

Xeracalm cream has white color, it’s so rich and thick cream, it feels so velvety on skin. I find it so greasy at first, but the moisturizer sinks down slowly on to my skin. It’s spread so easily on the skin and doesn’t interfere with my concealer or foundation. I never use the cream full on my face, because I have combination skin tipe. I prefer to use this for a treatment for my face at the problem areas such as chin and cheek. Sometimes I have dry skin in that area. I use it for my body also, hands and legs, they are extremely dry.It relieved itchiness immediately and has worked to ease my dry skin in only days.

A word for on the packaging, Avene have created a brilliant packaging. The tube is so airtight it keeps the cream clean and sterile, the sealing system is keeps the product last without contamination. But it does take a lot of squeezing to make the product come out.

This is a key ingredients, those formula are work like magic:

  • Patented I-Modulia® is a powerful complex derived from Avène Thermal Spring Water that calms itching sensations and irritation while helping to support the skin’s defense system
  • Cer-Omega, derived from evening primrose and rich in omega-6 and ceramides, provides exceptional hydration and helps restore the skin’s epidermal barrier
  • Avène Thermal Spring Water ensures tolerance and provides soothing, softening and calming properties

The following ingredients:


Avene Xeracalm A.D Lipid – Replenishing Cleansing Oil

Xeracalm Cleansing oil is a soap and fragrance free for face and body, specially design for dry skin and sensitive skin. It’s ALLURE Best of Beauty 2014; Best of Beauty Breakthrough 2014. It calms, soothes and alleviates itching associated with atopic dermatitis and eczema. The benefits and ingredients are same with Xeracalm cream. It also suitable for infants, children and adults.

It’s a unique cleanser, kind of hybrid between a cleansing oil and foaming cleanser. When the other cleansing oil is made to be used with dry skin, this one is designed to be used on wet skin. This colorless cleanser is thick and kinda sticky. It is claim to be fragrance free and soap free so it won’t sting your eyes if used on your face. But somehow I don’t love the scent (like oil scent) but that’s not a deal breaker.

The cleanser is dispensed via a handy twist lock pump. The bottle is quite big so it’s perfect to sit on my bathroom vanity.

You can try and get this miracle cream and cleansing oil at Jayanata Beauty Plaza Surabaya and Avene Counter all over Indonesia.

Thank you once again to Clozette and Avene Indonesia for sending me this product.

So, have you try this product? Give ne a thoughts.
