If there were anyone in the world to give us skincare advice to follow, it would be the French. Those ladies have beauty down pat. So when French skincare brand Avène comes knocking with a gentle cleanser to help reduce oil and give skin a matte finish, it’s game on. This gentle foam soothes, refreshing your face while helping to restore balance.
Recently I started a regimen of Avene products to combat a skin problem on my face that the doctor says is Rosacea, and yet will not respond to the usual medications.
Avene is not "medicated" nor an official treatment for skin rashes, acne per se, and such, to be clear. But I can say it is gentle, light and easy to use. Non-irritating.
My condition is not "cured" but there is less redness, and I am eager to share with folks here how this goes, as I will be getting a few more Avene products due to my tentatively positive experience thus far.
Avene Cleansing Foam is mild and fluffy. It leaves no sense of harshness, no tingling, none of the effects that we with damaged or (ahem) older skin wish to avoid.
It's so light and delicate that you simply apply with circular fingertips, and it mysteriously dissolves away after a few minutes of cleansing. There is no need to follow with a warm washcloth, although you can, gently.
I apply Avene Gentle Toner (other review) after I use the Foam Cleanser.
I can't say enough good things about Avene's Cleansing Foam. It is incredibly gentle, yet incredibly deep cleansing and effective. I use it in a double cleansing process, after my oil cleanser, but I think it's really this product that makes the biggest difference for my skin. My face has never been clearer or felt softer and more smooth.5
This is good if your face isn't really dirty (not what I'm using after the gym). However, I use this before bed/ when I wake up in the morning... and it's good in that it's gentle (doesn't dry out my skin-even in the winter). I like that it's foaming- so it's fast to use. Pleasant smell.4
I love this product. Leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed without leaving it dry. I was skeptical of purchasing this product at first but i am so glad i did.5
This cleanser has a very pleasant scent. I have extremely sensitive skin and my skin did not feel tight or react badly after using it. I would purchase it again.5
