Review: Eau Thermale Avene Cleanance Gel Soapless Cleanser

Thanks to OnlyBeauty, a new online portal that delivers freebies to their members' doorsteps, I was given a sample of Eau Thermale Avene's Cleanance Gel Soapless Cleanser to try out.

50ml sample sent by OnlyBeauty *thanks OnlyBeauty!*

So what does it do?
According to Avene USA, this cleanser has a deep cleansing action that purifies without stripping the skin. Its PH 7.2 respects the skin’s natural balance, minimizing the trigger of excess sebum production. It is soap-free (DUH :p) and uses Avène Thermal Spring Water to soothe and soften skin. It is a hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic product.

Use this if you have:
Oily, blemish-prone skin
Visible shine
Enlarged pores

Avène Thermal Spring Water (56%) - Soothes and softens
Cucurbita pepo extract - Regulates sebum secretion
Zinc gluconate - Purifies
Glycerol - Hydrates

This is a cleanser for oily, blemish prone skin, so if you have dry skin, it wouldn't be suitable for you. As my skin is combination skin, I thought, no harm trying it out to see if it would have any effect on me.

The liquid itself is green and clear (as you can see from the picture above). I quite like the colour as it reminds me of green fields and mountains :p When I opened it up to take a whiff, I was pleased with the pleasant smell that it emitted.  It was not strong so much so that it overpowers my nostrils.

After using it, I could feel that my skin was softer, and smoother to the touch. After a while, my face wasn't as oily as usual, so I would say that this product actually helps to minimise the excretion of sebum from my pores.

I would recommend this product to anyone with oily skin :) It doesn't tighten my skin, and it's fresh fragrance is subtle :)

Rating: 7/10

Repurchase: Yes
