Dried my face so bad
Sampled

I have normal to dry skin and I received this cleansing gel. I didn't notice until after I used it that on the sample it states that it's for oily to blemish prone skin. It dried my skin so bad!!! I was NOT happy and to top it off it made my eyes burn. VERY VERY unhappy.

Average Cleanser
Sampled

I used this cleanser as a body wash, as I have dry skin and did not want to use it on my face. It had a pleasant, clean scent, lathered and rinsed well, but was nothing special for the price.

LOVE Avene Products for my sensitive skin
Sampled

I absolutely adore Avene products, especially because I have super sensitive skin. I now have both their thermal spring water (which is AMAZING and not irritating like so many out on the market, supposedly soothing misting sprays) and now I have their cleansing gel for my face! It's not irritating to my skin, it doesn't burn it or dry it out. I definitely recommend for ALL skin types but especially if your looking for a cleanser and you have very sensitive, dry skin, give this a try. Sample was tiny though.

Cleans Well, a Little Harsh
Sampled

I absolutely love the Avene Thermal Water, so I was excited to receive the cleanser. Unfortunately it is much too harsh for me. My eyes sting very time I use it, and it has a strong smell as well. I plan to try their cleansing milk instead.

Great product
Sampled

I let my 15 year old daughter try this after reading other reviews of how it made there skin dry. Her skin tend to be a bit more oily. She loved it and I ended up purchasing a bottle for her.

Awesome cleanser

This cleanser is amazing. It cleanses beautifully without making my face feel tight and stripped of all its moisture and oils. I will def be purchasing a full size.
