Gritty Pretty Trial Team Review: Avène’s A-Oxitive Antioxidant Defense Serum
Your fellow readers decide whether Avène’s new serum gives you THAT glow.
We’ll be the first to say it: when you’re having one of those glowy skin days, the sun shines a little brighter. Us? Being dramatic? Never! But seriously – when a good skin day kindly lands on that beautiful face of yours, it gives you a confidence boost.
While we know that a healthy diet and regular exercise are key, an antioxidant serum (hello, vitamin C) can give your skin a helping hand. There are a lot of serums on the market but just between you and us, we’ve discovered the next big thing.
Introducing Avène’s A-Oxitive Antioxidant Defense Serum ($59.95) – a 30mL bottle containing your best skin ever.
Avène is an iconic French pharmacy brand guaranteed to be found in every French girls’ bathroom. Born in a small village in Southern France called (aptly named Avène) the brand is famous for creating products that are kind to sensitive skin.
Avène A-Oxitive Antioxidant Defense Serum is one of the brand’s newest releases. This highly concentrated antioxidant serum brightens skin, creating a more radiant complexion and reducing fine lines. Thanks to an innovative Gradual Release vitamin C, the formula transforms into pure vitamin C upon contact with the skin, making it great for those with a sensitive complexion. Gradual Release vitamin E helps to protect against free radicals and environmental aggressors; hyaluronic acid draws in moisture and boosts hydration levels.
With regular use, A-Oxitive Antioxidant Defense Serum has the power to brighten and smooth your skin. But don’t just take out word for it. We asked 20 of our beloved Gritty Pretty Trial Team Members (sign up here if you haven’t already) to put it to the test. For 30 days, your fellow GP girls took 30 seconds out of their morning to smooth this silky formula all over their skin.
