Avène Cleanance Cleansing Gel for Face and Body

Cardinal beauty rule number one: Never wash your face with plain old 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.

My thoughts

Not a fan. Too oily for me personally. It left a sort of film on my skin that didn't feel comfortable. If I want my skin cleansed, I want it to feel firm and refreshed.

Dried out my skin
Sampled

Liked it as a face wash. It was kinda drying and burned my eyes. Definitely would not purchase full size.

I have combination skin and this product left me with dry, tight skin after using it. Also, do not get this anywhere near your eyes. Very irritating! Do not recommend.

Awful!
Sampled

I have sensitive skin and a mixed skin type. I don't know if this product is JUST not for people with skin like mine, or if the product is just terrible. But for me, it is AWFUL. Putting it on was ok. It felt nice and cleansing. It gave a light lather. The scent was also nice and clean-smelling, not too perfumey. However, that's where the nice part ends. I wasn't out of the bath for a minute or two when my face started feeling itchy, burned, and felt SUPER dry. My advice is to STAY away from this if you have sensitive skin or skin that can dry out. Bleh!

Not as described
Sampled

I am in my 50s and have dry skin so liked the concept of not stripping oils from my skin. However, didn't perform as described. Left my skin feeling very tight and dry.
