Avène Cleanance Gel

I'm introducing a new product to my skin care regime, as over the last 2 weeks my skin has turned horrendous! It has gone patchy in colour; I have had several spots which I never get now, and they occur once in a blue moon so yes, weird activity on my face! I cannot put a pin point onto the culprit however, the direction I'm looking at is towards my Nivea Pure and Natural Cleanser but surely Nivea cannot be causing this, I mean, it's Nivea!

I've decided on taking a sabbatical away from it for a few weeks to see what happens, I can then decide if it is the Nivea cleanser which is not agreeing with me. So, I've went in search of a nice, sensitive skin cleanser for my blemish ridden skin, with me picking out the Avène Cleanance Gel. I have heard of this brand before, I know somebody that uses it ritually and their skin looks great! 





The actual product reminds me of washing up liquid when you initially put it on to your fingers. I've literally only used it for the first time this morning but after putting it on my face, of which it lathers up great I found that my skin did feel very refreshed and calm if that makes any kind of sense. 

It cost me £8.25 from Boots, which for me at the moment is a tad expensive but under normal circumstances I wouldn't mind. However, I have to say I feel it will last me a long while, a small amount really did go a long way.

Hopefully it will start to sort out my skin over the next few days.
Has anybody else used any products from Avène, if so, what were your experiences?

  2. Hope it works for you :) I think Avene products are really good. You could also try La Roche Posay which they sell in Boots too, great products! x x

    1. Hiya, thanks for your comment! :)

      I have tried La Roche Posay too, and I agree, lovely products. I wondered if they were for more sensitve skin than mine hence I stopped using them but I may re-buy when I run out of my Avene. Have to say, I'm liking it quite a lot at the moment :) x

    1. Hiya :)

      You can do a skin diagnosis on their website and apparently they send out free samples once you do this, worth a look!

      Your cat is lush! Thanks for replying to my question, I'm going to be getting two cats when I get my own place :)

  5. I have heard tons of great reviews about Avene products. I have been meaning to try some for a while now, I have very sensitive skin and suffer from eczema so I have to be careful when choosing new products. This gel sounds great though so I may give it a try :)

    1. They really are lovely however, after using this now I have decided it is making my skin very dry. I think it is aimed at skin which is far more oily than mine, I have given it to my boyfriend who has oily skin but also very sensitive skin.

      I think it will be much more suitable for him :)
