review: Avène gentle cleanser


I enjoy trying out new cleansers marketed for those with sensitive skin. The Avène cleanser is advertised as being extremely gentle and that it is. Up until very recently it was very hard to find a gentle enough product that wouldn’t cause break outs or rashes. This gentle cleanser is perfect for those who’d like a fragrance-free cleanser that still has the strength to take off a lot of makeup. This cleanser is; "Non-comodogenic, hypoallergenic, paraben-free, fragrance-free, colouring agent-free.

I have been trailing this cleanser for a few weeks now and gentle it is. I personally don’t like cleansers that require you to use a cotton pad to wipe it off like this one but I adapted it and after massaging the cleanser into my face I used a lukewarm muslin cloth and wiped off the excess cleanser from my skin. I found this removed my makeup effectively whilst also cleansing my skin. Compared to other ‘gentle’ cleansers this is actually quite a bargain. The Avène gentle cleanser feels velvety on the skin when you are cleansing it and also once you have wiped it off.

For all those lazy people out there this cleanser is great because it doesn’t actually need to be washed off, you just wipe any excess cleanser on your face with cotton pads.

The skin feels nourished once cleansed and unlike some other cleansers it isn’t harsh on the skin at all and doesn’t leave it feeling tight. Compared to other ‘gentle’ cleansers this is actually quite a bargain at only around £6.80.

Hope you enjoyed this review? Let me know if you’ve tried this product or other products suitable for sensitive skin.

    1. Ah glad you found the post helpful, I came across reusable cotton pads the other day, eco friendly too. Slightly softer than the muslin cloth I think so I might try that too :)
