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.

Best Skin Care Product!
Sampled

Ive gone through my fair share of skin care products, but this is surely the best. I have pretty sensitive skin and this is so light and delicate, but cleans so well. Plus, it is a face AND body wash. Its a great buy

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!

Didn't like the smell
Sampled

I have a hard time with expensive cleansers as is , so I was hesitant when I used this. I didn't like the smell -- it reminded me of my great grandma (who maybe just has great taste in cleansers) but regardless -- not for me.

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.

This sample is amazing, I have very sensitive skin and this does the trick! From cleaning my makeup off to just doing it to feel clean and fresh there is never a moment I'm disappointed!

Okay

It felt super great and loving on my skin, but even after washing it off, my face was sticky and tacky.
