i love this product. It's so gentle and effective. It helps me to keep the pimples and blackheads away :)
This product is HORRIBLE... And ridiculously expensive. It doesn't fulfill any of it's claim and given the fact it's so expensive and has set up such a high quality rep it shouldn't even take longer than a week or two in my opinion for it work, eventhough a cycle is 28 days. This product feels as though you're putting grease on your face and has a stink to it. I'm SO mad, but happy I was able to get a complete refund, if I could find the customer service line for Avene - I'd call and give them a piece of my mind.
I was expecting very much, I guess, so I was rather dissapointed by this. It did nothing for my stubborn blackheads and left my face sticky, as if there was a layer on it which could not be absorbed. Does not work under makeup, too, because of the stickyness. As a moisturizer, I like the Cleanance (without "K") much better - it does nothing for my blackheads either, but at least it makes my skin feel soft and clean.
I think this is more an acne treatment than a moisturizer. For me was great after several harsh acne treatment (like sulfur, with a dermatologist). Great for sensitive skin. It really clears the skin after one month. Less acne, but now i prefer the keracnyl regulating cream by Ducray because it has the highest concentration of BHA and AHA...
Maybe if my skin becomes more sensitive again, i'll use this again...
My skin occasionaly breaks out if I go for manual exfoliation so I generally prefer chemical skin exfoliants. My skin was feeling rough and congested so I dug this out of my cupboard and applied a thin layer on after washing my face last night. My skin was feeling tight and taut and it immediately felt better after application. It does give a slight tingle but it didn't bother me. It didn't redden my skin either so that's a good thing. When I woke up in the morning, I was very surprised to find that my skin was flaky all over, thin easily cleaned off with a wet washcloth kind of flakes. It really exfoliated yet it does so very gently.
This did nothing for my skin! It has a strong fragrance which I don't believe is good for acne-prone skin. I was hoping this would reduce blackheads, but it definitely does not!!
It did absolutely nothing to me!
i applied this product mainly on my nose hoping my blackheads will disappear -- no visible result after 2 months.
I love Cleanance k! The AHA/BHA content seems much higher than other AHA products I have used, which means it is great as a treatment cream. I use it for 3 weeks to get over my "bad skin" period then switch back to my regular night cream (with AHA as well). I experience some non-irritatingpeeling which effectively get rid of new pimples and fade away the hyperpigmentation left by previous breakouts. Highly recommend this as a treatment cream (all over the face or just on affected areas). BTW, it does not dry your skin out like Benzoyl Peroxide.
I use this at nights and it's been gentle to my skin. No redness and irritation. I love this...it helps to keep pimples away.
