An Avene Skincare Moment

Avene Skincare

For some reason my skincare products is only made up of one brand, and that's Avene. They've recently been killing it with their products and my face has just seemed to be relatively breakout free since I've been using these products.

Let's start with their cleanser as that is the first product you'd use in your routine. The Avene Cleanance Soapless Gel Cleanser has to be the gentlest cleanser I think I've ever used. Now I don't know the science behind this, but boy does this stuff work. My skin feels so purified after using this, and the best thing is it doesn't irritate me, leading to less blemishes gracing my face.

The Avene Cleanance MAT Mattifying Toner is perfect if you tend to get oily. I only really use this in the morning as I like to use an acid exfoliating toner in the evening. Regardless since using this, my skin doesn't tend to look like an oil slick (gross, I know) after a few hours. It seems like it regulates my sebum production and as such my makeup sticks around a lot longer.

The most recent addition to my routine is the Avene Cleanance Expert Emulsion. I would liken it to La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo+ in the way it works, but this seems to be better at preventing blemishes whereas Effaclar Duo works best at dealing with the after effects. Nevertheless using both in my skincare I really find I'm optimising their effects. Bye bye blemishes.

My face mask of choice from Avene is their Cleanance Mask. The thermal water works so well at soothing my skin when it's having a bad breakout and I feel less of that clogged up feeling you get when everything looks a little rough on your face. I've already raved about it in a post I did all about face masks for blemish prone skin which I will link here. It's a godsend, and I find myself forever repurchasing so it must really work eh?

Also Escentual have a third off French Pharmacy on their website right now, so if you fancy checking any of these products out now would be the time! It may seem like I've been sponsored as they're all from the Cleanance range, but having blemish prone skin means I tend to buy products aimed at that. I didn't even know I had practically the whole range until I was tipping out all my revision after my exams. So if you have blemish prone skin, this brand slays at helping out.
