Miracle Skin Care

I began using Avene products approx one year ago and am so happy to see Birchbox has started carrying a few of their products. This gentle cleansing lotion is my everyday go to cleanser that is so gentle and soothing on my skin that I cannot use anything else. I have dry and sensitive skin prone to hormonal acne and have found that most acene, even those considered to be gentle, seem to make the problem worse by drying the skin out, thereby creating more oil than necessary and contributing to the problem. This cleanser is very gentle and never leaves my skin feeling dry or filmy. I use this with my olay rotating facial cleansing brush (the less expensive version of the clairsonic). I follow up with the rest of the Avene line, my moisturizer is the Avene extreme tolerance cream and the Avene eye cream. The thermal water is great for days when you need to refresh or in the summer when you do not want to apply a moisturizer to your face on a hot sweltering day. ATTN: BIRCHBOX - PLEASE CARRY MORE OF THE AVENE PRODUCTS.

So few ingredients = GREAT!
Sampled

I really enjoyed this product. I have extremely sensitive skin so anything that has few ingredients is always a great thing for me. It worked well and did not irritate my skin at all.

LOVE

This actually removed ALL of my makeup (proof in the toner cottonball that followed) in a few gentle swipes. This may be my new favorite night-time makeup remover.

I love tiny face washes
Sampled

Any time I take a trip, I need to bring a face wash with me. I sampled this one once to make sure I will like it, and am saving the rest for my next trip. I love little samples of face wash. They are so nice to have for traveling. I wouldn't mind if BB sent me five face wash samples in one box. I can never get enough. This one passes all the tests with flying colors and I look forward to the time I get to use my luxurious little sample while out exploring the world.

Silky soft skin

This sample came at the perfect time for me. With the weather change and seasonal allergies, my skin is in need of some TLC. This is a very nice cream cleanser that makes my skin feel great!

Sensitive makeup remover
Sampled

I love this product. I've sampled it every evening to remove my make up before I begin my nightly facial routine. I'm pleased with how sensitive it is. It could in no way be my sole cleanser, because I agree with other comments regarding the filmy feeling it leaves behind on my skin. I don't mind it much because I usually proceed with other cleansing products.

Okay

Cleansed pretty well. Was nice and gentle. Did not love it enough to replace my usual daily cleanser.

Gentle, indeed
Sampled

I have insane skin allergies, so I never use a cleanser. However, not only did this get me clean at the end of the day, I also didn't break out in hives, and it didn't burn when I used it! Definitely going to buy this, and it's great for you sensitive girls out there!

Avene
Sampled

I love love love Avene products this is no exception. It is a wonderful light cleanser that is gentle and doesn't strip the skin. I am a huge fan of balms and non foaming cleansers. I think if you are used to a foaming cleanser you may be alarmed, but trust me try it! You will be happy you did.
