Avène Cleanance Cleansing Gel

Cardinal beauty rule number one: Never wash your face with plain ol' soap. This soap-free cleanser, made with French thermal spring water, has been keeping European beauties fresh-faced for decades. The gentle formula purifies skin without aggravating it, and is especially good for oily or blemish-prone skin types. Bonus: It can be used as a body wash, too.

Nice cleanser
Sampled

This has nice mellow scent, a thicker gel cleanser, that seems to work well without drying.

I love this cleanser. It’s almost jelly like when you apply it on the skin.

It’s nice.
Sampled

I am relatively new to gel cleanser, so I was very excited to give this a try. I thought I would find the consistency odd or unappealing but surprisingly I actually found it kind of refreshing. The reason I gave it three stars is because as far as it’s cleansing abilities, makeup removal, visible results, etc. it just didn’t blow me away. It’s not bad by any means, but I’ve definitely had other cleansers (at a lower price point) that I give me better results.

Great cleanser
Sampled

I have loved this sample for cleaning my face. I do follow up with my serum and nighttime moisturizer after. I feel like it has helped cut way down on blemishes.

Okay

This product cleansed my face, but it made my face dry after using. I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone with sensitive skin.

Ok but Ouch
Sampled

I was excited to try this product (as many seem to love it) but it stung my eyes and the scent was off-putting. I think I've come to learn that my skin much prefers creamy cleansers to gels. My skin can take (and loves) all kinds of toners, acids, serums, essences, masks etc. but this gel cleanser just didn't feel right for some reason. It did its job it just didn't do it for me. Or my eyes.

Amazing
SampledPurchased

Absolutely amazing!! I’ve used this sample at least 10 times on my face and still have 1/2 a bottle left. A little bit of this goes a long way. It lathers so nicely. I just used my points to get a full sized bottle and got one for a friend as well. I wash my face at night and the next morning my face is nice and smooth when typically it would b oily with any other face cleanser. GO AND BUY THIS! The price is cheap on the size of the bottle and for as long as it lasts!!

Love - buying full size
Sampled

I have acne prone skin and usually only use Dove sensitive skin bar soap on my face - either that or L'Occitane gentle face wash. However, I'm now a convert to this cleanser. It immediately made my face feel incredibly squeaky clean and fresh - it feels like a deep clean every time I use it. I did find a larger bottle with a PUMP attachment on Amazon so sadly I'll be purchasing it from there - I love to support BB and get the points, but this cleanser is hard to manage getting out the right amount without a pump. Love this. Birchbox, see if you can sell the larger size with the pump attachment.
