I cant use any foaming cleansers because they dry out my skin (i havent found a foaming cleanser that wouldnt do that)
This cleanser doesnt break me out, doesnt dry out my skin and it clean my skin nicely
You are supposed to use cotton pad, but i just rub it into my skin and then rinse it off like a normal cleanser, i found out this metod works best for me (if i dont use water i just dont feel clean)
One tube will last me 2-3 months
I use this product as a moisturizer - it's 5 times cheaper than the avene tolerance extreme emulsion for the amount you get and it does essentially the exact same thing - moisturizes with absolutely no chance of irritation. This really speaks to the cosmetic purist in me, and has been amazing for my sensitive as shit skin. Works great for my combination face. It takes a bit longer to absorb than the emulsion and its slightly harder to apply evenly but it's a barely noticeable difference. Perfect for acne prone skin. Gonna try mixing it with a drop or two os squalane and see how that works.
Don't waste your money on the emulsion - get this instead. Thank me later.
Only seven ingredients and safe for fungal prones.
AVÈNE THERMAL SPRING WATER, SQUALANE, CAPRYLIC / CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE, GLYCERIN, BEHENYL ALCOHOL, SODIUM ACRYLATES / C10-30 ALKYL ACRYLATE CROSSPOLYMER, CARBOMER.
Skin is left feeling lightly moisturized, not right and all face makeup and sunscreen removed.
I have repurchased.
This stuff is AMAZING. No detergent, no irritation. I use micellar water before hand and then cleanse with this lovely, rich lotion. I am a hot side line cook and my skin is dried out by the heat and must I do whatever I can to make sure my skin is well hydrated. I use this and Tolerance Extreme Emulsion together and my skin stays pretty supple. I can't use anything foaming and cold cream in the traditional sense. This is a very rare cleanser and I am fearful Avene will discontinue it.🙁
It has been discontinued in Canada and I am so mad!! This is the only cleanser that causes me no rash no redness, no irritation what so ever.
I was worried about using it as a cleanser because I am a cook who works over a hot range all day. It's greasy and hot work that can both dry out my skin and coat my face in a film of atomized grease particles. I don't know how I'll find another cleanser to compare to it.
How I used it: Initially as a cleanser, but since my butterfly zone is often filled with little filaments sticking out of each flaky pores, I require products that are a little less emolient so that I can softly rub them off with the pads of my fingers. This leaves a moisturizing film, making that difficult. Then I began to use it as a moisturizer, and it was PERFECT, especially when layered multiple times. I use it as my last step, morning and night, with best results if I mixed in a drop of tea tree oil.
What it did: It was a great moisturizer for my malassezia-sensitive skin. My skin flakes easily, with some texture and an oily t-zone. This really helped manage my skin flakes, and did not make my finnicky skin throw a fit. The ingredient list is so straightforward and the results are just good, basic moisture.
