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.

Too much fragrance
Sampled

This cleanser is not for me. It made my combo skin feel tight and a little sticky. The worst part was the overwhelming fragrance. I really don’t want a cleanser that smells like a grandma poured a full bottle of perfume on my head. And I certainly don’t want one where I have to re-wash my face to get the smell off.

Not for anyone with fragrance allergies
Sampled

Waaaaay too much fragrance even using a dime size amount. Cleans well but my allergies to fragrances has swollen my nose shut with this. No, no, no.

Stop it.

I feel like Birchbox doesn’t have a good algorithm to pay attention to my profile & care about my feedback of likes & dislikes.

Too harsh for sensitive skin
Sampled

I only used my sample twice. My face broke out in small hives the second round. The product made me feel like my face was on fire and I would not recommend this for sensitive skin types.

Dry
Sampled

This product dried out my skin and didn't leave it soft. It felt more like I had used a bar soap.

Strong Smell
Sampled

The smell of this product is not my personal taste. I got a sample of lotion from the same brand in my last box and found that the smell lingered and really bothered me, and it's the same this this cleansor. Not a fan.
