I've made of my grá for Avène products quite clear in the past so when this aqua bottle arrived on my desk for testing I was delighted. We've had a couple of trials and tribulations here in Casa Cherry with cleansers for oily skins up until now, naming Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash as just one that's dried out our poor kissers terribly. I was confident though that Avène was see us right. I was spot on.
Rich in Thermal Spring Water, Avène Cleanance works gently in its soapless (but slightly lathery) way to purify the skin and reduce excess oil. To be used morning and evening on damp skin, I've found that the youngest has taken to this like a duck to water - going so far as to hide it behind the shampoo for his own cleansing needs, that's how much he's loving it (the snakey fecker).
Benefits according to Avène:
- Deep cleansing action purifies without stripping the skin
- PH 7.2 respects the skin’s natural balance, minimizing the trigger of excess sebum production
- Pleasant fragrance tolerated by sensitive skin
- Avène thermal spring water to soothe and soften skin
- Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
I think what I like most about this product though is not that it's solved the youngests' oily/dry skin conundrum, nor the clean refreshing scent, it's the genius lid! Clean and hygenic, this simple twist lid not only means there's no mess but also means that every drop can be used from the bottle, making it a money saver too.
Have you tried this yet? Any love for soapless cleansers?
