We found the coveted moisturizer Hailey Bieber swears by for her healthy glazed skin look

We're all familiar with Hailey Bieber's impossibly clear and radiant skin, right? That gleam she has to rival a glazed donut? Well, we found the moisturizer that holds a coveted spot in the Rhode founder's skincare arsenal, for helping to deliver just that—all for under $30.

The healing ointment in question, Avène Cicalfate+ Restorative Protective Cream—which is now a contender for our best moisturizers list—has glowing reviews, including one from Hailey herself, for its rich and multi-use post-biotic restorative formula that works to accelerate skin recovery and deliver powerful hydration, whilst remaining non-comedogenic.

And much like with Hailey Bieber's fave perfume, TikTok is loving her glazing recommendation but unlike her Ex Nihilo Fleur Narcotique scent, this cream is also surprisingly affordable...

The restorative moisturizer Hailey Bieber swears by

Now before we get into what makes this product a true beauty staple and why you need it, besides it having Hailey's seal of approval (though what more could you want?) we need to begin with a disclaimer. This moisturizer alone is unlikely to grant you Hailey's famously flawless skin but, when used as part of your skincare product order it will certainly help you on your way to glowing skin—especially this winter.

Formula-wise, this fragrance and sulfate-free cream is packed with a copper Zinc Sulfate Complex and C+ Restore—a postbiotic restorative ingredient, which is rich in proteins that aid and accelerate the skin's restoration while also preserving its natural barrier. Plus Avene's signature thermal spring water for added hydration, making it a great moisturizer for dry skin.

The Hailey Bieber Avène love affair goes way back, as the model first shared her love of this moisturizer back in June 2022, when she shared a TikTok on the product she uses when her skin is breaking out or irritated. Along with the Tower28 SOS mist (at Sephora), the Avene cream took pride of place amongst her skin-saving recs.

Since then, beauty lovers on the app have been raving about the budget-friendly cream, for leaving their skin looking healthy, soothed and most importantly—as we can all agree—glowing...

The reviews from ULTA shoppers are also almost as glowing as Hailey's famous skin, with one Avene fan writing: " This is an excellent product for dry skin. It gives radiance I use it over all my skin care as a final product to hold in the moisture."

While a second said: "This cream is truly amazing. It's thick but blends into the most smooth, dreamy application. Blends onto my face and body soooo nicely. Very hydrating & doesn't break me out. Will repurchase, worth every cent." 

A third even dubbed it a dupe to La Mer, "Better than La Mer. Been looking for a dupe. Love this one so much and the formula is more cosmetically elegant than La Mer too."

MIL's other glow-giving recs

And if you want to keep this glowing train going, we've gathered up a few other known glow-givers to use alongside your new Avene healing ointment, including Glossier Futuredew and the Inky List Peptide moisturizer—especially in the lead-up to fall and winter.
