I adore this product! It effectively and gently cleans my skin, which is great because I have been looking for a gentle, anti-acne cleanser to use in conjunction with my prescribed acne creams. This cleanser is great because it doesn't irritate my skin as my previous cleanser did, and leaves a refreshed, clean feeling as opposed to a taut, squeaky feeling. I reccommend this to anyone who needs an effective, non-irritating anti-acne cleanser to use with their topical anti-acne products.
This is a good cleanser, but not great on my skin. It does not make my skin worse, but not better either. I think maybe this is too harsh for me, and I do not want to strip my skin completely. Now that the weather gets colder, this is too drying. Also the bottle last only a few months, and it's quite expensive.
On the other hand it does a fantastic job of removing make-up. The best makeup-remover I've ever tried actually! And it smells good and is really refreshing in the summer!
I am a little bit on the fence with this one.
Maybe I will try this again in the spring..
OMH HOOOOOOOLY GRAIL,i had veeeeeeeeeery persistence acne,and this soap it self make it disapear!!!!
I switched to the Cleanance line after a bad acne flare-up about a year ago that occured for no obvious reason.
At the time I was using Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser which did nothing for me, especially in terms of sebum control.
It cleanses without being harsh, but removes makeup and oil buildup perfectly. A happy medium between the too-gentle Cetaphil and most anti-acne cleansers that will literally strip your acid mantle off your face.
Using a decent anti-acne cleanser marketed for sensitive skins is one of the best things you can do for your acne.
Only problem with this product is that it costs $22 AUD for about 200ml? I think, which does not last me long at all. 1-2 months at most.
I have dry skin but oily T-zone with occasion breakout. My derm recommend Cetaphil but I hate it, so she recommend this instead.
I'm my 2nd bottle now, it's gentle, non drying but cleanse well. Love it.
Update: just bought my fourth bottle, i try to change to other cleanser and my face was a wreck, after i switch back to avene my face is clear again, I did not expect cleanser can make a difference. HOLY GRAIL
This is my absolute most favorite cleanser! Ive been using this for a while now and have re-purchased about 3 times! i have really oily skin which is prone to breakouts now and again, this cleanser is gentle and makes my skin feel so nice after ive cleansed, ive had problems with my acne for the past couple of years and this has reduced and calmed it down so much. my skin is also slightly sensitve so if i use a stronger cleanser, i get a horrible reaction, go red and blotchy for days and breakout painfully. ive tried a ton of other products and nothing has worked as wonderfully as this one.
for a student who doesnt earn much, this product was really expensive for me, but its seriously the best so i'll get it anyway. love this cleanser!
I hate the packaging but for traveling its great. Blue gel is nice because you can see it better on the wash cloth. I wouldnt say this is a foaming cleanser because it dosnt foam well on my clairisonic or washcloth but with just your hands it foams decent. It removes everything, and dosnt bother my eyes at all which is rare. Even my organic body wash and johnstons babywash bothers my eyes (no tears my @$$) anyways... It improved my acne, but it didnt get ride of it but it is the first to ever help, and i am thrilled! My skin isnt dry after but a bit tight, but i dont have oily skin, just combination so i cant use it as a con. The only thing i dont like about it is that it dosnt foam great (it dosnt say it should tho so i can knock a lippie for that) and the lid is cool, but a pain for everyday use. Fix the lid Avene and i would give it 5 stars! I wanna try the foaming one next. Avene is a great brand and i think it might be my HG face care brand!!
I've tried avene's spot treatment and its pretty effective. So I wanted to branch out and try their face wash since I was in need of one. Went to shoppers drug mart and the m.u.c suggested this, and I have and oily t-zone so for 25 CDN for a pretty good sized bottle, and there was and extra 25% more included, I bought it. It works ok, it isn't harsh at all, pleasent smell, I only need a pea sized amount to wash my face. It doesn't prevent pimples or oil, but it doesn't break me out or irritate my skin. I probably would buy again if I don't find anything stronger
This is my favorite cleanser. It cleanses really well without drying the skin( I have oily skin). Left my skin feeling extremely soft and clean looking. It may be mildly drying for drier skin types.
I always try different cleansers, but end up going back to this one.
