I tried this product after being a loyal user of Dermalogica's Special cleansing gel. I still love that product and think it smells great, but I really wanted to give some of the thermal water products a try. So i bought this cleanser and the Cleanance K. The gel cleanser doesn't smell as great as the Dermalogica one but I think it suits my skin much better! I have suffered from chin breakouts since I was about 20 (now 26) and sometimes they can be quite cystic and nodular. Occasionally I get smaller more manageable spots too. This cleanser has really helped with both - I very rarely get the smaller spots and the larger ones are much reduced! It doesn't feel tight after cleansing.
I will definitely buy again, especially as it is the thermal brand I can get easily in the shops over here in the UK although I will definitely try similar products from the other thermal brands if I can find them!
I bought this a few years ago for the first time because my dermatologist recommended it. I had more acne back in the days. it really helps clearing up acne and preventing it too. I use it before bed these days and use a different one in the morning (clean and clear morning burst) and avene definetely makes skin soft, non-greasy, doesn't make me break out or dry the skin. It's the best cleanser out there, IMO, for those with combination/sensitive skin. I dont really like the packaging though, it's kinda messy i would prefer it with a pump.
i have a really challenging skin problem- dealing with seborrheic dermatitis the last 6-7 years. i break out a lot,especially in the chin area, and this product is the only cleaning product that i can use 2-3 times a day without drying my skin out. it feels really fresh, guaranteed removes all make up and prepares the skin perfectly for other cleansing regime or/and make up.
in Greece it's 11 euros and that's quite reasonable - the bottle lasts forever.
i'll definitely keep on using it, as well as other avene products.
Love this cleanser! It last a long time, because a little bit goes a long, long way. It's the only cleanser that truly controls my oil spots without drying out my cheek and jawline area. Really gentle on skin and even when I had to use some antibiotics that really made my skin (and hair, and eyes... everything!) very sensible and irritated, this cleanser still did it's work and actually calmed down the redness on my skin. Definetly my HG.
I bought it 6 months ago, after i read some very good reviews about it. I tried to use it as in instructions, but it did not work. Another expensive product with zero results. Do not waste your money!!
This is the only cleanser that doesn't break me out. Every time I try another cleanser, it breaks me out and disturbes the balance in my skin! The only thing I dont like, is the green color and the packaging..not very luxurious! :)
I bought this based on reviews saying it was good for sensitive skin. After 2 uses my face was a red, burning mess. Not the right product for me. Will not repurchase.
Love this cleanser even though I use this as more of a face wash in the mornings. It doesn;t irritate my acne prone skin and it leaves it feeling clean and smooth. Love it. I think this also helps keep my acne under control because when i stop using it, my acne seems to get worse. Will definitely keep repurchasing as long as it works!
The best cleanser I've ever used. Removes all traces of makeup and keeps breakouts at bay when used with the other Cleanance products. It doesn't really foam up and like other reviewers have suggested, it is definitely recommended to work up some lather with your fingers before applying to face so that the cleanser works evenly.
I've had this cleanser for what seems forever, and it still hasn't run out! For all you Canadians out there, I bought this at London Drugs (Shoppers Drug Mart might carry this, try them as well). As other reviewers have said, you don't need to use very much for it to be effective.
It works really well for me, but I don't like the strong scent of it. If there was no smell, I would have given it a 5/5.
