OK, didn't dry my skin...
Sampled

But, it did leave me with a breakout a day or so after I used it. This tends to happen to me frequently though, so I might be an exception. I needed less moisturizer after it's use.

Go to cleanser

This is a great basic cleanser. I've actually been using it for about a year now but am happy to have the Birchbox sample for travel! This cleanser gets your face feel clean without feeling tight. I take my makeup off with micellar water or a cleansing oil and use this as my second cleanse. It's also great for any acne on the chest/back areas!

Nice
Sampled

Nice and smooth and feels cool going on, but not sure it is over the top noticeable in its functioning. Nice addition to the shower but doesn't beat some alternatives. Has a nice smell.

The best thing about this cleanser was that it did not dry out my skin! If dryness is a concern for you, this cleanser is perfect!

Love this cleanser!
Sampled

I was so impressed with this facial, gel cleanser. I have oily/combination skin and don't normally like facial cleansers. This Avene cleanser was light and fresh feeling, and rinsed off easily. I loved the way my skin felt after washing my face; incredibly soft and smooth, but not greasy. It seemed to remove my make-up effortlessly with just a small amount of product. This is a cleanser I will definitely purchase.

Skin feels younger
Sampled

It leaves my skin feeling clean and tight. Since my skin is normally on the drier side, I make sure to follow it with a hydrating cream or mask regularly. I love how young and tight your skin feels after
