Best Cleanser Ever!!

This stuff is Amazing!! I see some reviews saying they didn't like it, but that's because they are not rinsing it! It is to be rinsed off! It deep cleans without stripping your skin.
I love this stuff and will keep using it!!

effective and gentle
Sampled

I love all Avene products because they don't irritate my skin and don't have a lot of weird chemicals and fragrances. This one gives a satisfying foam, and seems to have a noticeable impact overnight on small blemishes.

Okay

This stuff is pretty cool. You wet your face and then spread it around and then you don't have to rinse. I gave it three stars because it seemed to work pretty decently but I docked it two stars because I just can't imagine my face being clean after only spreadin around the dirt and germs and not rinsing off

I would probably use this if I needed to camping or something but it made my face feel sticky when I used it.

Not for my skin
Sampled

I did not like this cleanser, I have acne prone skin and it was cause my skin to break out. I find my skin was more oily when I used it.

Love this Cleanser

I received a sample size of this in my birchbox and thought I would give it a try (I'm usually picky about my face wash and have been using another very expensive brand for years). I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this product. I have oily skin with large pores. With just a few uses I noticed I had less blackheads and it seemed like my pores had shrunk too. I also noticed that at the end of the day my face wasn't nearly as oily as it usually is. I'm buying myself a full size bottle NOW!

Comfortable Facewash

I received a sample of this in a different beauty box. Cleanance soap-free gel makes my skin feel so fresh so clean. It has a lovely texture and I like the smell too! Cute bottle. I carry this in my gym bag for feeling fresher after a work out. :)

Not that great for acne prone skin
Sampled

Didn't really do much to help my acne prone skin. Also didn't do a great job of taking my makeup off because there was still a lot left on my cottonball after using toner. This is probably great for people with normal to oily skin not prone to break outs.

I already have a cleanser so I gave this to my Husband. It's hard to get him to use products but this one he uses. We even bought a full size.

great face wash! I use it every morning and wash it off. Leaves my face feeling clean and doesn't dry out my skin
