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.

Nice wash

Doesn't dry my face after the wash. I'm not crazy about the smell though.

smells great

The product cleaned my face ok but did not remove my eye make up! I prefer using my current cleaner.

I have been trying to find a cleanser that I really like for some time now. This product was kind to my skin, and made it feel smooth and fresh. I really enjoy using this product.

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

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.
