Tolerance Control Skin Recovery Cream Tout

As a shopping writer, I road-test a ton of new products at any given time to find out what's worth the buzz, and they don't always behave with my sensitive skin. In fact, sometimes they cause flare-ups, and admittedly, I've even suffered a chemical burn once or twice from carelessly mixing reactive ingredients. When my face is in desperate need of a reset button, I turn to Avène's Tolerance Control Skin Recovery Cream.

The lush emollient is infused with a D-Sensinose postbiotic ingredient found in Avène's renowned, mineral-rich thermal spring water for immediate relief—and it’s free from irritating preservatives, fragrances, parabens, mineral oil, and silicones. According to the brand (and I can also attest), the moisturizer can calm visible redness, discomfort, and tightness within 30 seconds and restore the skin's barrier in 48 hours while providing 24-hour hydration. Many shoppers dealing with rosacea and eczema also swear by the soothing formula.
