Love, love, love this!!! Cleans so well, everything comes off, even mineral sunblocks applied thickly. I like that it's a solid balm that melts into oil & it rinses off clean so easily with only a very slight after feel, which doesn't bother me as that helps to not dry out my skin. This cleansing balm is also easy to emulsify with water because it doesn't feel …Read more

I've had my large bottle (400 ml) since 2010 & have used only 1/4 of it. It cleans well enough I supposed, but somehow I don't really like it. Could be because I don't feel cleansing waters clean all that well, especially if you use mineral sunblocks. Personal preferences aside, this is a refreshing cleanser, easy to use as you just need to dispense a sufficient amount on …Read more

Feb/16/2013

My dermatologist recommended this for the eczema on my body. I used it on my face & never looked back! I love it as a simple, no frills moisturiser. It's creamy but not oily, reliable & does not contain any fancy (read: potentialy irritating) ingredients. Fragrance free, moisturises well without any greasiness on me. My skin is just calm & moisturised. I reach for it when I need …Read more

I wanted a gentle cleanser and bought this after reading Beautypeadia. Big mistake. This burned my skin the very first time that I used it. I checked the ingredients' list but could not find which could have caused the irritation. Quite puzzling to me. Checked MUA & found there are a few users who had the same complaints. Not willing to waste it, I continue to use it on & off, but …Read more

I bought this because have heard so much about how Avene is good for people with sensitive, allergy proned skins. I had a bad bout of eczema on my legs. The skin there is really dry with scaly patches & uneven skin tone. I first applied the cream on my legs, & since its so emollient, I ended up applying it all over my body. Big mistake. Within 1/2 an hour I was itching all over, but …Read more

My son had a bad outbreak that seemed neverending, his skin was inflamed and a furious red, & there was scarring & marks. I'd tried a few products to help control the outbreaks, but to no avail. I initialy bought this for my eczema, but I read from the web that some have used this product with success for acne skin, I asked the SA & she explained it may take 2 -3 days to bring …Read more

Mar/31/2011

I bought this because I have been having dehydrated skin that has lasted me for weeks, & I hoped this could help. I normally have combo skin, that's more towards oily. I used it for the 1st time overnight & woked up to a slightly oilier skin than has been normal for me these past few weeks. This looks promising, or so I thought. I used it for the 2nd time in the morning, before going …Read more

Feb/15/2011

Have used this for almost a year, it's fragrance free, goes on matte, is easy to apply and stays put till I wash it off at night. I use it all over, even near my eyes and it doesn't smart at all, even after excercise. There is a slight white cast, especially around the hairline, but wait awhile, after it dries up, it is gone. I have not had any problems with it at all so far. My face …Read more

One of the best toners I have ever used! I was doubtful at first when I found that it's for dry skin, as I have combo-oily, sensitive skin. But from the first day I started using it, I have found it the best! It removes leftover dead cells, yet keeps my skin hydrated, is non-drying, does not leave my skin feeling sticky unlike most toners I have used in the past. & totally fragrance …Read more

I love this cleanser! It is a gel and is fragrance free, and cleans thoroughly without any tight, dry feeling that most cleansers for oily skins do. Paula is a genius for formulating this. I just love the texture and what it does for my skin so much. It's not foamy, so I wonder how it manages to clean so well. You just need to wet/wash your face 1st with lots of water, then apply a bit of …Read more
