Avéne Extremely Gentle Cleanser


avéne extremely gentle cleanser review

Avéne is a brand that I haven't heard anything about before, usually if I haven't tried a product before I've at least seen a few products of the brand floating around the blogosphere, but not this one. For that reason I didn't have extremely high hopes for this product, I didn't expect to be the person to find a lovely little hidden gem.

Recently my skin hasn't been very good, I've never really struggled with skin issues, I've always had dry skin, but nothing too extreme, but thanks to the Winter weather and also due to switching to Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse (which I definitely regret!) my skins been extremely flaky in areas, and I've had a few more breakouts and red patches than usual. That said, I was eager to give this "extremely gentle cleanser" a try. Rather than washing off, which can irritate sensitive skin even more, you simply tissue off. It's an incredibly silky smooth texture which looks pearly to the eye, oil-free cleanser which contains thermal spring water with soothing and anti-irritating properties.

I'll admit it feels weird just wiping off the cleanser with tissue or a cotton pad, but my skins been feeling much softer, and I think it's even cleared up my skin a bit, which wouldn't be noticeable to anyone else, but it is to me. I'd definitely recommend this product if you've been struggling with your skin lately and are looking for something a little gentler to use.

Have you heard of Avéne before, or have I just had my head in the sand?
