Avene Cleanance K – Review

Back in December I went onto the Avéne website and filled in the skin survey, a week later two little samples landed on my doormat. Once you’ve filled out the questionnaire you get sent two samples that are catered to your skin type, I received the Avéne Cleanance K Cream – Gel and a gel cleanser. The cleanser was nice but nothing special, however instantlyI loved the moisturiser. Once I’d used up my sample I bought the full size version which I have been using every night for about a month now.

The Avéne Cleanance K is a moisturiser which contains exfoliating AHAs and BHAs. It says it is for oily / blemish prone skin and claims to unclog pores, absorbs shine, and normalises oil secretion. I use Avéne cleanance K on cleansed skin in the evening, and I find that it absorbs easily and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy. Like it says on the box it has a consistency somewhere between a gel and a cream.

It has dramatically reduced the number of blemishes I get and how long they hang around for. It has also stopped the build us of dry skin around my nose. I really love this product, my skin just looks so much more even after using it and it feels so soft. The only bad thing about this is that it doesn’t smell great. I can’t put my finger on what it is but it isn't very nice.

My boyfriend suffers from acne around his mouth and I've been making him use this every evening too, and it’s really improved the state of his skin. It had definitely controlled my oil production; I've noticed a big difference to how oily my skin is after a day at uni.

Overall I think that this is a great product, you get the exfoliating AHAs without the big price tag. This costs £10.50 for 40 ml and it available from boots. I used the points on my advantage card to buy this so that was a bonus! Although I don’t want to think about how much money I've spent in Boots to amass £10 worth of points! I would definitely recommend going on the Avéne website and getting some samples sent, it’s such a great way to try out products. 

Lots of Love

  2. This sounds great, and it isn't a brand I have tried before. It is great that it works well for acne prone skin as well. I know what you mean about boots points. It all adds up!
