I started using this product about 1.5 months ago and only a bit of product is gone - a little really does go a long way. This cleanser does an excellent job of removing makeup and it's great for oily skin - you'll really get a clean feeling with this. The price is a little high ($22 Canadian) but the bottle will last me for a while. It does a good job of keeping my occasional pimples at bay but it's not perfect! Damn PMS. This product would be too drying for someone with dry or even normal skin.
Love this cleanser! It has a nice texture (not too fluid) and no fragrance whatsoever and really leaves your skin feeling super clean, but not too tight nor dry.
There is one thing that annoys me about the packaging: you have to screw/unscrew the cap while having wet/slippery hands, so it's really difficult to handle.
I am using it almost 1 month now and all I can say is, this is really lovely product and I will be using it forever ! :)
BumMEr- the SA recommended me this gel cleanser for oily and blemish skin (green colour), my face felt very tight just after one wash. i thought i was being too sensitive, so i tried again the next day... still too tight for me. but i read so many great reviews abt it on MUA... and pple said it's such a gentle cleanser. hmm...
anyway, the next day, i went to another outlet and this SA said i should be using the deep pore cleanser because my face dont have pimples but i have open pores... she claims that this 125ml tube can use for around 6 months... well, at least this works better for me i guess... my skin didnt feel so tight after a wash and i could really see my face looking cleaner. only grouse.. it doesnt foam up well. (ironic huh- FOAMING CLEANSER)
This is what saved my skin after all the breakouts I had from using the pore-clogging Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. It's very gentle but still astringent enough on my oily and blemish-prone skin. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and cleansed without any tightness. My only gripe is that it's not fragrance-free and it contains colorants. Nevertheless, I would still rate this as the best for my oily, blemish-prone skin having tried so many cleansers from Paula's Choice, Biotherm, B Kamins, Caudalie, Darphin, Kiehls, Jurlique, etc. UPDATE: Stopped using it after I discovered Mir Skin Care, which has now become my HG. Cleanance became too drying for me! But it's still a very good option for someone with very oily skin.
I love this very much. It's so gentle to my skin and yet makes my skin clean.
I am extremely impressed with this product after only 2 days of use. My skin feels cleaner then it has been in months. I am acne prone with t-zone oily areas and some dry patches. This product works with all of that - I am so thankful I found the reviews for it here.
I decided to get this product after seeing all the good reviews, and was not disappointed. I have sensitive combination skin, and this cleanser is gentle, yet removes all my make-up without drying out my skin and causing any breakouts. But it didn't seem to affect my existing breakouts.
I brought this product today after reading the reviews on here. As I live in England, I had to get it from my local Boots drugstore and it cost around £9. However, I don't know if it's the same stuff by Avene. It's not got 'soapless written on it, but it's definatly a gel cleanser. It's not foamy so can anyone tell me if it's the right one I purchased? I used it earlier and it seems nice and refreshing - will be sticking to it I think. It makes my skin look clean and clear, so gets a thumbs up from me.
Oh I don't like the smell at all, I don't look forward to waking up to it :(
I generally dont use foaming cleansers as they are usually too drying on me. However now and again if my skin is oily or feeling conjested i like to use one, enter avene Cleanance. I dont find this irritating despite the fragrance which i will come back to. It doesnt leave me feeling tight or like i need a moisturiser afterwards, and it doesnt leave me red. The only bad thing about it is the 'fragrance', as a reviewer says below it smells a little like a cheap mens showergel/cologne etc. I really dont get Avene, i mean the entire line is based on the special 'healing' properties of the avene spring water and how it sooths sensitive skins etc... so why oh why must they add these fragrances to nearly all thier products?! I mean its not as tho it just gets in there, there must be a step in the production process where they sit down and say 'hhmmm so what about fragrancing it? so they must have tried lots of different ones. They must also either make this or purchase it from someone so it is costing them to put it in... so why? i just dont get it. If you are going to fragrance something it should smell nice, and this just doesnt. It may be more hypoallergenic than other fragrances but who cares? why didnt they just leave it out rather than put it in even if it doesnt smell nice? Same with a lot of thier products. I'd love to sit them all down and say 'whats with the fragrance'? :(
I cant even be bothered emailing them cos they are not going to change all their products and they'll probably say smell is a personal preference and some people like it, but it just goes agaisnt the philosophy of skincare for reactive skins to include fragrance - and a bad one at that.
