Moisturizers -Avene -Tolerance Extreme Emulsion

on 1/19/2018 3:15:00 AM


I have both the emulsion and the cream in the Tolerance range, and love both. I tend to use this emulsion in the morning as my sunscreen is also fairly moisturising and if I go in with the cream it is too much. It gives my skin exactly what I need, simply hydration and protection - without any irritating nasties. My skin has become very intolerant as I have got older, and I now have to completely avoid fragrance, acids and even using a flannel/washcloth. I have continuously suffered with hormonal acne, which is finally under control thanks to my dermatologist, but now I am experiencing redness across the bridge of my nose and am extremely sensitive. This emulsion has so few ingredients that I can use it without any problems, and it does not clog my pores! Love the range, and the price point is fantastic. I no longer spend a fortune on expensive skincare products and recommend these if you are battling with sensitive skin. Definite repurchase!

Treatments (Face) -Avene -Tolerance Extreme Cream

on 1/19/2018 3:07:00 AM


This is a great moisturiser if you are looking for simple hydration and moisture barrier protection - without any irritants. (Fragrance being the big offender for me.) I love that it contains shea butter, which my skin loves, without a ton of silicones. I use this at night prior to my prescription retinoid and it is so good. It applies smoothly and is absorbed quickly, and it doesn’t pill - which means if I’m having a drier day I can use it in the morning too (under my sunscreen). Here in Germany it is €14 which I think is reasonable, especially when the selection of moisturisers for true allergic and intolerant skin is so small. Definite repurchase!! Also, this does not clog pores or cause acne for me.

Sunscreen -Avene -Very High Protection Mineral Cream SPF 50+ (for intolerant skin)

on 1/16/2018 3:11:00 AM


I wanted to make sure I was reviewing the right product as there is no picture at the moment. This is the orange packaging with the pump and is face only. There is an almost identical looking product that is for both face and body. Anyway, I do like the pump applicator and the packaging, but that is about as good as it gets for me. I tried this two ways. First I used it with Clinique BIY drops to make a tinted sunscreen/foundation. I dislike layers of product on my skin, so I like to mix foundation drops into different sunscreens or moisturisers. This applied shiny and stayed that way. Not a good type of shiny, but a really greasy looking one. So I then decided to try it under powder foundation and got nearly the same effect. Now I am 52 with good skin, so I am at an age where products usually sink in a bit. This would be terrible for oily skin. If you want this product to go under makeup or mixed with makeup, I would advise against it. As a pure sunscreen, I still think it's too greasy and unflattering. It does leave a white cast and although reasonably thin in consistency, it is not thin enough for my liking. Neutrogena makes a much better facial sunscreen.

Masks -Avene -Cleanance Exfoliating Mask


It was not effective on my acne prone skin. My skin felt itchy and uncomfortable every time I applied it. I have been using it for about 6 months. Very disappointed.

Mascara -Avene -Couvrance Mascara

on 1/5/2018 7:04:00 PM

I generally love Avene products, but this mascara was a miss for me....it smudges like the dickens. I got it as part of a holiday special, pretty cheap along with the Avene eye cream (which I like). So I marked it as good value, and it initially went on well so I gave it a 5 for packaging, but a 2 for smudging.

If you are interested in a mascara that just doesn't budge, see my (and many other) reviews of a great value in mascara - CoverGirl.
