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.

This is a low key great cleanser. Simple & non irritating. Works so much better than I imagined!

Not my favorite Avene product
Sampled

I’ve had lotions from them before & loved them but I was disappointed with this cleanser. The scent is too strong & did not help my dry, sensitive skin.

Fantastic

Use this as a travel face wash and it is so gentle and clearing and it lathers beautifully

Loved the ski feel the way it lathers and softens my skin without drying

Perfect for Combo/Oily Skin
Sampled

Perfect for my sweaty, prone to breakouts, sometimes oily summer skin. Love the cool feeling + clean scent. Use as a single cleanser or as the second step in a double cleanse (after makeup remover.) It’s on my BB Top Ten List!

Thank Goodness!
SampledPurchased

In the past year, my skin became sensitive and started really breaking out. I tried a million things and went to two dermatologists with no real success. Then, I started using this along with the lotion during the day and most nights (alternating with a mild retinol) and it works! My skin is clearer and feels back to normal. I am so thankful for this product.

Great cleanser
Sampled

This cleanser does a great job of removing makeup and dirt. However, it smells like Zest or Irish Spring or some other soap my grandparents use. I can’t get past the smell.

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.

I really like this cleanser!
Sampled

I didn't think this cleanser would do the job of cleaning my face since it didn't really suds up, but not only did it clean my face, it didn't feel tight and dry after! The sample size lasted has lasted well over a week and I still have about 1/4 remaining. I will definitely be purchasing this one.
