Amazing product at a great value!

I love this product. Leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed without leaving it dry. I was skeptical of purchasing this product at first but i am so glad i did.

Avene Cleansing Foam

This cleanser has a very pleasant scent. I have extremely sensitive skin and my skin did not feel tight or react badly after using it. I would purchase it again.

Light as Air

Recently I started a regimen of Avene products to combat a skin problem on my face that the doctor says is Rosacea, and yet will not respond to the usual medications.

Avene is not "medicated" nor an official treatment for skin rashes, acne per se, and such, to be clear. But I can say it is gentle, light and easy to use. Non-irritating.

My condition is not "cured" but there is less redness, and I am eager to share with folks here how this goes, as I will be getting a few more Avene products due to my tentatively positive experience thus far.

Avene Cleansing Foam is mild and fluffy. It leaves no sense of harshness, no tingling, none of the effects that we with damaged or (ahem) older skin wish to avoid.

It's so light and delicate that you simply apply with circular fingertips, and it mysteriously dissolves away after a few minutes of cleansing. There is no need to follow with a warm washcloth, although you can, gently.

I apply Avene Gentle Toner (other review) after I use the Foam Cleanser.

Super Gentle

This foam is amazing. You can put it on damp or dry skin. At first it seems like the pump doesn't give you much product, but one pump is more than enough to cover my whole face. The foam doesn't doesn't disappear but rather spreads really well and goes a long way. There is no soap in this product so it cleans but doesn't dry my face or make it feel too tight. Also, the feel of the foam is so soft and silky on the skin. It is truly indulgent to use everyday! I have only used a few times but I have sensitive skin and so far have had no bad reactions to this product.

Great , Wonderful , Awesome Product !

I ordered this AVENE Product (Full Size ) without even trying a sample of it . After reading the reviews on the BB Site I thought I would give it a try. I have sensitive skin and my face wipes were refreshing my face however; they were no longer making me feel like my face was clean and free of the little make-up I do wear. I keep it as natural as possible so when I received this I used it that night to wash my face. Let me just say WOW Ladies it left my face feeling so soft , clean , and fresh . I LOVE this AVENE Face Wash and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone with sensitive skin. My face also has a glow to it and now I wear even less make up as my complexion is looking Great and Balanced.
