With central-heating season in full swing, it’s great timing that the French pharmacy brand Avène, famous for its calming, redness-relief, restorative skin-care products — all winter skin-care buzzwords — is having an up to 20 percent off sale at Dermstore now (with the code AVENE20). We rounded up some of its best soothers and skin-care hits below, from a face mist to spritz at your desk to a “tolerance extreme” cream specifically catered to dry, sensitive skin.
Avène Thermal Spring Water
If you’re shopping for only one thing at this sale, it may as well be Avène’s culty, best-selling thermal spring-water spray. It’s a nice one to keep by your monitor at work when your skin’s feeling dry and irritated, because — as the Cut’s Kathleen Hou puts it — it “delivers a mist fine enough to water an orchid, but still feels very good on the skin.”
Avène Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream
This restorative, creamy moisturizer’s a favorite of French makeup artist Mayia Alleaume, who says it helps her wake up with baby-soft skin. “This cream calms any irritation. I love to use it as a mask and sleep with it all night long.”
Antirougeurs Calm Soothing Repair Mask
And a redness-reducing mask that popped up on our list of the best redness and rosacea products this year for its hydrating thermal spring water and calming peptides.
Avène Retrinal 0.1 Intensive Cream
If you’re just looking for a good exfoliating retinol for winter, this one has glowing reviews, and a well-rounded formula that includes peptides, antioxidants, and vitamin E.
Avène XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Cleansing Oil
Or, if you’re switching over to a cleansing oil, here’s one catered to atopic dermatitis and eczema sufferers that relieves dry, itchy skin, too.
Avène Tolerance Extreme Cream
A richer moisturizer designed to soothe dehydrated, hypersensitive skin.
Avène Skin Recovery Cream
Here’s a hypoallergenic shea-butter-enhanced cream that’s well-suited for extreme skin conditions like eczema and rosacea.
Avène Mineral Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50+
This SPF 50 sunscreen is lightweight enough to layer under makeup, and doesn’t leave a white cast, which is why it made the Cut’s best-of list of mineral sunblocks.
Avène XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Cream
And a great everyday moisturizer for sensitive skin types: It contains I-Modulia for calming itching and inflammation.
