Avene's Cleansing Gel doesn't leave the skin feeling dry at all, and it leaves the skin feeling very comfortable, sort of like you've just rinsed your face with clear water. I guess that would be a good thing if you are looking for gentle cleansers, and not so good if you are looking to clean off excess makeup residue and whatnot. I use this cleanser only at night, because it is so gentle and basic I would use the cleanser to wash my face first with my hands, and then I would combine it with Foreo Luna Mini to ensure my make up is washed off completely. Other than the gentleness of the cleanser, I don't see much difference in the improvement of skin. It says it is for oily and blemish-prone skin, but I don't think it helps very much with blemishes.Conclusion:This cleanser is very suitable for individuals with sensitive skin who seeks gentle cleansers. But for people like me, who often breaks out and has excess sebum, this cleanser is just a bit too gentle.

lets talk about my skin: i have very sensitive skin thats prone to acne and breakout. i'm combination but more on the dry side.so this cleanser is just AMAZING !! to be short, its the perfect cleanser. its without soap, gentle enough for my very sensitive skin, and even gentle for around my eyes which is the most sensitive of my skin. some people may find it a bit drying, but i don't feel it that way even though i have dry skin.it does leave my skin very clean and fresh. go ahead and give this a try, i'm sure you gonna love it. its hypoallergenic and non comedogenic. NOTE: sometimes like today, i'm on my period and welcome those small bumps on my forehead, nose and cheeks, what i do is i cover my face my hot-warm face towel for about 60seconds to open my pores and then i put some cleanser on my hands and rub it gently all over my face. then i leave it there for about 5mns, next i take back towel which i wet again with hot-warm water and very gently do some circular motions on my forehead, chin, nose and cheeks (kinda exfoliate those bumps) and then i rince with cold water to close my pores. that works just amazingly!!!!!! i can see the difference by the way after i rinse my face. it felt clean and smooth. i'm not buying face scrub anymore (which was difficult to find one thats gentle enough for my very sensitive skin), this technique is what i'm doing to exfoliate my skin a least twice a week with or without the cleanser. i wish i could show you guys a pic of before and after. my skin is now soooooo glowy and clear after only about 3 weeks. **i also use the triacneal expert and the hydrance cream and love them both.

This cleanser is comparable to bioderma sebium gel. This leaves cleaner feeling because there's no residue after you rinse it off. This foams up better when I put it on foreo luna rather than straight on the face. As for long term effect, there's none yet apart from a good cleansing property. I'm interested in bioderma as it claims to prevent clog pores. Haven't seen anything either yet as I only use it twice.

I actually have repurchase this over and over and over again for 5 years
leaves your skin fresh and smooth. feels a lil bit tight but I have really oily skin so with my hydrance moisturizer works perfectly. it reduced my breakouts a lot so its just wonderful

Got this with a +50% offer and I have a 300ml bottle. I love the smell of it and it is an excellent face cleanser (my all time favorite is Vichy Normaderm, but this is very very close to it). Still, if used morning and night can be too harsh on the skin and dry patches can appear. I now use it only in the evening, after removing my make up. In the morning I wash my face with water only. This combination works for my skin.I have it since January and I'm only at the half of the bottle (I sometimes share it with my bf :))). It lasts a long time because it's concentrated and you only need a small drop to wash your face. It says you can use it on the body also, but I never tried that. Guess you can use it if you have acne spots on you back or arms.I would repurchase it, especially because the drug store where I bought it always has offers on Avene products. So this is a good buy :)

This is a good cleanser for oily skin. It does reduce the pimples a bit and leaves the skin with a very fresh feeling. I notice these results especially when i first started using it, but not so much at the end. It says it expires in 6 months and because it's so big (300 ml), it took me a bit to get to end, not a year but almost. I don't know if it was expired, it didn't break me out or anything and didn't smell bad but the results certainly wasn't as good as when I first started using it. It does leave the skin a bit tight, but I personally don't mind since I have oily skin and after applying a moisturizer on top, it feels very good. The packaging is very comfortable and you don't waste any product, it is also very hygienic.Price wise.. not very good. I paid 13 euros (bought it in Europe), but it was because it was 50% off, so it's about 25$ the bottle, which is up there in price.I don't discard repurchasing once I try a few more, since I like to switch up my skin care but I think I'll end up repurchasing in the future.

This is an amazing product. It perfects my skin. It doesnt leave my skin dry. My under eye area is very sensitive so sometimes it gives damage to that area but of course if i wash my face carefully, nothing happens. People who has sensitive skin should think twice before buying it. I would buy this again and again.

I wasn't really impressed with this product. Even tho I have combination skin, I found this cleanser to be overdrying for my skin when used daily. I guess it would be fine for really oily people. It's not very expensive and you can mostly find it on offers. However, I won't buy it again because I avoid anything foamy in my cleansing routine.

I hope they never stop making this product. This is the only cleanser I trust to never break me out. When I wash my face with this, I really try to massage all of this good stuff into my skin: don't rub, but gently massage your face with it for half a minute and it will do wonders for your skin. It controls the oil on my face and keeps my pores tight and clean.

This is really good, right after I wash my skin with it it looks "photoshopped", clearer and brighter...Also it never caused breakouts and feels soft and foamy when applied.
