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.
I loved this cleanser! I may replace my current "morning" face wash with it. It was really effective in removing all my makeup without over drying my skin (which happens very easy with cleansers) although I still used a moisturizer after each use. Only thing is that the smell and packaging reminds me so much of hotel sample soaps/shampoos.5
I was first introduced to Avene when my husband bought some sunscreen in a pharmacy in Spain when we forgot our own. I used every last drop and loved the smell, so I knew when I first got a sample of the facial cleanser I would love it as well. It has a mild, but fresh scent and cleans so well. It also doesn't bother my sensitive skin. I pretty quickly bought a full sized bottle and anticipate it lasting a good while since you don't need much to lather up well.5
This is by far the best face cleanser I've ever tried, and lately I've been using a lot. It leaves my skin feeling light and soft, not too dry at all. I really feel like it's helped clear up some of my pregnancy blemishes as well. :) The sample will last me a few weeks, but I can't wait to buy the full bottle!5
This face wash leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. I like philosophy better.4
I was so-so on this. It is very light and is great for sensitive skin. However, I didn't see a noticeable difference in my skin that would make me change face cleaners.4
It smells great, and you really only need a pea size amount so it goes a long way!5
feels ok, but i had to use a lot of moisturizer after... But, i will keep using it unlit the sample runs out4
I'm not super fond of cleansers because of my sensitive skin. I gave it a shot to see if it might work for me, but alas, my skin is just too sensitive and dries out completely. Luckily, it didn't get red. I literally use water and a gentle cloth to clean my face... I keep wondering why I still get cleansers in my box.3
This cleanser was very gentle and left my skin feeling fresh.4
I have dry-combination skin but am prone to breakouts, so thought I would try this even though it says for oily skin. I would definitely not recommend this product to anyone with less than oily combination skin - it made my face feel horribly tight and it took several days of wearing night cream during the day before my face stopped feeling itchy. That being said, it did clear my breakout right up.3
