Decent but not for me
what is the point of this?Can someone please explain the purpose of this moisturiser? I found that it did NOTHING my pimples or blackheads. I did like the lightweight consistency but otherwise quite useless..
Great spot treatmentI've been using this for years and I absolutely love it. It is hydrating and perfect for making sure that once acne goes away, it will not come back. It also lasts for a pretty long time, so the price is absolutely worth it.
Perfect for acne and healing blemishes, comparable with La Roche Posay Effaclar DuoThis product is basically like La Roche Posay's Effaclar Duo, but better suited for more sensitive skin. If you have blemishes that you've picked (I know you shouldn't, but it happens!) this does a really good job of healing them fast to avoid infection.
You may feel some tingling upon application, and weirdly I noticed that the skin around my blemishes went really dark like a scab, but the next day or two the blemishes basically flaked off. This also did a good job or calming down hormonal acne.
If you have combo skin, or oiliness or active blemishes, I recommend this product for it's ability to heal and maintain the integrity of the skin.
Works well on irritated skinI got a small sample when I bought other products. It's very light and quick absorption. It really calms my skin when I have acne and rash. I will buy a full-size one to try again and hope it will be the same thing.
YesThe texture is light and it can be easily absorb. It works amazingly. I noticed that after using this my acne and blackhead has decreased. Definitely definitely repurchase.
Avène Cleanance ExpertHelps clear up Acne flareups and blackheads. I apply it in the morning after using the Cleanance Toner. Light enough that I apply foundation over.
Decent but not for meDidn’t work so well for my skin type as I get acne and found this didn’t help it a lot. Not for me but probably best for someone who doesn’t break out as much.
Didn't do muchThis didn't do much for my congested, acne prone skin. The oil control is alright though.
Brilliant!This is like a version of La Roche Posay's Effaclar Duo for sensitive skin. This stuff is super gentle on the skin but with all the acne fighting power. It clears and exfoliates my skin to baby butt softness levels. This can be worn as moisturiser if you are oilier or as an acne spot treatment, or even an all over serum under moisturiser for my drier gals and guys
Absolutely ridiculously effectiveI used this during my late teens to early twenties in the hopes of clearing my acne, and oh boy did it ever. Within a week there was not a pimple, raised lump or even a blackhead to be seen on my face. It also kept my oily skin very matte without feeling dry. Even though I did stop using it, my face never actually went back to the way it had been previously (looking like a pepperoni pizza). This stuff is ridiculously effective, and the only issues that I have with it, are the price, and how small it is! Excellent product. Would recommend strongly if you're heavily acne prone.
GreatI've been using this for years and I absolutely love it. It is hydrating and perfect for making sure that once acne goes away, it will not come back. It also lasts for a pretty long time, so the price is absolutely worth it.
A spot treatment for grown ups!It seems like the struggle against breakouts is never ending. From my my early teens to now in my early 40's, I've tried just about everything! Before you give up and just resign yourself to being a spotty adult, I would recommend you give Avene Cleanance Expert Emulsion a try. I read a review that said this was the grown-ups version of a pimple treatment cream - so I've been using it locally to calm and try to help my breakouts heal. I'm surprised to read that people are using it as an all over face moisturiser - I might give that a go and see if it helps stop pimples before they even have a chance to breakout!
Did not work for meI have extremely oily skin which is also prone to breakouts and a friend recommended this to me. I was also persuaded by all the good reviews online. Unfortunately this did nothing good for my skin. If anything, I think it may have made it worse. I broke out more and looked oilier than ever. I will neither recommend nor repurchase this.
A HG product for my skinFrom the first time I used this moisturiser, I was impressed. The next morning my skin was glowing yet matte & after a few weeks of use, I no longer felt the need to wear foundation or BB Cream. This in itself is AMAZING as it's been years since I've left the house without cover up on red parts of my skin from previous pimples.
I've now been using it for almost 2 years and can honestly say that it has reduce red spots and balanced pigmentation on my skin. I do use other products, but I know this has played a huge part in clearing up my face.
I don't use it every day - maybe 3-4 times a week? I alternate it with other hydrating moisturisers and it works well with this balance.
AVÈNE CLEANANCE EXPERTThis moisturizer is really quite fantastic as it definitely keeps spots at bay, is not at all greasy and leaves my skin feeling smooth. I get dry patches around some spots and spot prone areas but I don’t have to worry about slapping this on it as it will also help get rid of the spot… unlike normal moisturizers. I haven’t had to use my acne cream in ages now! :)
AVÈNE CLEANANCE EXPERTThis has been a lifesaver for my face. I was told to expect results in 3 weeks but started noticing them after only one. My skin isnt perfect yet and blackheads are still around but breakouts are so much rarer now and Ive never been smoother. Already saving up to repurchase!
Most effective treatmentI was recommended this product when I was in Italy years ago in summer, it was sweltering heat and my skin had a bit of a freakout from the travel. I started getting breakouts over my face, and they were usually rare. I mean full face of breakout. I bought this from a pharmacy and within a day my face had calmed and I stopped breaking out. It treats your face while not drying it out, its incredible. I still use it now over harsher pimple treatments if I get a hormonal spot. It works wonders.
Great duoReally helps me on the rare occassions when I get breakouts. Clears my skin without drying it out.
buy this for your teenage brother or sisterThis is like a version of La Roche Posay's Effaclar Duo for sensitive skin. This stuff is super gentle on the skin but with all the acne fighting power. It clears and exfoliates my skin to baby butt softness levels. This can be worn as moisturiser if you are oilier or as an acne spot treatment, or even an all over serum under moisturiser for my drier gals and guys
Very goodI got this in an "Avene Cleanance" set, alone with the cleanser and mattifying moisturiser. I probably used this the least, simply because I was terrified that the shea butter in it was going to break me out (which didn't happen!)
I got the sense that this is a little like Ella Bache's Creme Intex no. 2 - in that the aim isn't to blast zits with drying, harsh ingredients - but to actually help calm and heal the breakout. If I had bothered to read the ingredients on Creme Intex no. 2 back in the day, I probably would have been nervous to use that as well, given all the super-rich lanolin etc. in it. It just goes to show that you shouldn't be too obsessed with ingredient lists, since it is the formulation that matters.
This didn't break me out at all, so I will probably give it a better try next time around. First impressions are that it is a really good product for breakouts and inflamed skin.
