Great cleanser


I received a small sample of the product as a complimentary gift, it's a great gentle cleanser (hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic) and it's one of the best cleansers on the market out there. It cleans the skin nicely without drying it out. I have sensitive and normal/oily skin and this cleanser worked well!

Most Helpful Criticism

Not bad


I received this product in a goodiebag and it was pretty good. I like how refreshing and cleansing it is. It is a little too drying for me long term. It would be much better for more oily skin.
  1. Gentle soft cleanser

    Rachel Anne

    Nice gentle cleanser leaves me feeling soft smooth and refreshed although a bit drying unless you apply moisturiser shortly after

  4. pretty good


    been using for the past couple of months now, its a good gentle cleanser that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, would recommend to others with sensitive skin, not aggressive at all and leaves skin feeling clean
  5. Nice cleanser


    Got this as a GIP and it’s a lovely cleanser, removes makeup and is a gentle cleanser
  6. Nice texture but didn't really work for me


    I tried this cleanser as I had heard that it was good for keeping breakouts at bay. The texture of the cleanser is really nice and it is quite refreshing on the skin, but I found that it wasn't that effective in addressing my breakouts at all.
  7. Pretty good!


    Gentle on skin and good for acne!
  8. Nice cleanser


    Bottle is a good size although slightly smaller than I had expected it to be. Easy to hold and squeeze out product. My skin feels clean but not overly stripped. Would recommend if anyone is looking for a simple cleanser!
  9. love this brand and this product


    I love Avene cleansers, they make my skin so nice and clean without stripping it of its natural oils. I love this one, it smells great and gets all dirt, oil and makeup off, it is stronger than the milk cleanser but still really good!!
  10. great everyday cleanser for sensitive skin


    i use this twice a day and it gives me a nice clean feeling with a fresh scent. The bottle lasts ages as you only need a little! Sometimes my skin can feel a little dry in an hour or so if I don't apply serums/moisturiser after use. Gentle on skin and helps with breakouts.
  11. Recommended to all of my friends


    I love this product! It smells great, foams nicely & makes my skin feel so clean. More than any other cleanser I have used. Have bought many times and will continue to do so in the future.
  12. Gentle everyday cleanser


    This is the only cleanser I was able to use when I damaged my moisture barrier. It is soap free which allows it to gently cleanse without stripping or irritating sensitive skin. You only use the tiniest amount so a bottle will last months. It is also a fantastic second cleanse to remove residue from oil cleansers.
  13. Bye hormonal pimples


    This together with other products in the Avene Cleanance range got rid of my hormonal acne i had on my chin and forehead. I like to use this cleanser sparsely because a little goes a long way. Leaves my face feeling very clean but not tight. I moisturise straight afterwards anyway. I have dry skin and this cleanser regulates my oil production very nicely.
  14. Great product line


    This product line is great. So glad my dermatologist referred me to it. I swear by everything that I have tried by them. It's definitely worth the money.
  15. Great cleanser


    The cleanser has a nice texture and smell, it makes my skin feel nicely cleansed and fresh.
  16. Great for oily skin


    I actually purchased this for my partner who has very oily skin, and for someone who doesn't care about skincare at all, he is surprisingly picky. This is the first cleanser (that wasn't a bar of body soap) that I didn't get any complaints about! His skin was definitely less oily and clearer.
  17. One of my faves


    This cleanser is great at removing all oiliness that builds up throughout the day. I feel that my skin is left feeling instantly cleaner however it will leave you a bit tight.
  18. great for clearing up body acne


    i honestly just have really sensitive skin on face so i switched to using this to treat chest and back acne and it has dried up, otherwise you would need a hydrating serum and moisturiser to use on face and dont forget spf
  19. Lots of fragrance


    Personally i think there is too much fragrance and it irritated my skin.
  20. My go-to cleanser


    I have dry and oily skin and this cleanser doesn't dry my skin while also managing the oiliness. I use this every day and it is good at removing makeup.
  21. Good


    I love the gel consistency and it is refreshing and non-drying for my combination skin.
  22. Too drying


    I used this cleanser for over a year before being told to discontinue using by my dermatologist. The gel formula was just too drying for my skin. Might be better suited to oiler skin types.
  23. Good body cleanser


    I've been using this for years as a body product in the shower. I've found its cleared up body pimples, leaves my skin feeling quite clean and fresh. I also really like the scent as well. I find it a bit too drying for my face so I used the foaming cleanser instead
  24. Drying


    This cleanser was pretty drying for my skin, it left my skin feeling too squeaky clean and strip all of my natural oils off. Not for me!
  25. Great product


    It's a great product. I've been using this one since 2015 coz it was recommended by my dermatologist. I have a very sensitive skin and this is the only cleanser that really suits well my skin.
  26. Not too bad


    Foamed up nicely, skin felt clean afterwards, I did feel slightly tight and dry afterwards, which I don’t get that with my old cleanser. But it wasn’t too bad. I just applied my moisturiser straight away.
    I wouldn’t recommend if you are dry at all, oily skin yes, but make sure you apply a moisturiser so you don’t overproduce oil to compensate.
  27. Great for acne prone skin!


    I used this in my teenage years when I suffered from a lot of acne and over production of oil on my face. The cleanser was very effective at oil and acne control but did leave my face a tad bit drying. A small amount goes a very long way! And I would suggest to moisturise ASAP after using this to keep skin moisturised.
  28. It is ok


    Did not help with my acne whatsoever. Made my skin sting a bit, way better products out there to spend your money on.
  29. so cleansing


    cleanse my skin so well and doesnt leave it feeling dry!
  30. Good gel cleanser


    A good gel cleanser to have. I don't feel like this strips my skin at all. A bathroom staple.
  31. Great for fussy skin!


    First purchased when I was in Paris (oh la la) and realised that I hadn’t packed a cleanser for my fussy skin and have continued to purchase since. Did the job and worked well on my sensitive face. I find that during winter it can be a bit drying, but it keeps breakouts at bay and isn’t too offensive for sensitive and easily irritable skin and my boyfriend likes it too!
  32. Personal fav


    One of my favourite cleansers. Although I don’t have acne I find this is a mild, gentle cleanser that doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.
  33. Good price


    This product is great for anyone wanting a great cleanser without the expensive price tag. A little bit really does go along way.
  34. Doesn’t do much


    I found after using this cleanser for a few months it did nothing for my skin other then irritated it, as it had fragrance in it. I would suggest for anyone with sensitive skin to avoid this cleanser as it might irritate your skin.
  35. Favourite everyday face wash


    This is my absolute favourite. It forms a wonderful foamy lather and leaves my face feeling super clean. Washes off most of my makeup and my skin has remained pretty clear since using it. I'm onto my third bottle and I will continue to buy it. Another plus is the lid - I'm really picky about packaging as I keep my face wash in the shower. This lid is great and stops water getting into the product ...

  37. Good basic cleanser

    Beauty lover

    I used this cleanser for years and really enjoyed how it left my skin feeling fresh and fully cleansed. nice gel texture. It feels like a good simple basic cleanser to use. would recommend this
  38. Doesn't help with acne


    This is just okay. I have oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. It doesn't help with acne but it also doesn't irritate my skin. May be it will work for people who don't suffer from acne.
  39. Wonderful


    Does not dry the skin and gives the feeling of freshness and cleanliness of the skin. I use it mostly if my skin is sensitive.
  40. Good cleanser


    I have to admit that I first purchased this because the packaging was appealing to me. I love the blue gel and the way you have to twist the top to get the product out. The gel itself is quite thick but I love the way it lathers up. It smells a bit funky but not in a bad way. It feels quite moisturising on the skin and when I wash it off it does not leave my skin tight but it does feel clean. I wi...

  43. Good Cleanser


    This is a good cleanser, not great especially for someone dealing with dry winter skin. I avoid using it through winter but will always turn to it throughout summer because my skin gets quite oily and it helps to keep the oil away. dries out acne really well and is good for my overly sensitive skin. Does contain fragrance though, so if you're looking for something without, this isn't the product f...

  44. Great for dry skin


    Great for dry skin, I love using this during the winter months - does wonders to keep my skin super hydrated.
  45. Can be Drying


    This cleanser can be drying. I have combination skin that tends to get dehydrated and is acne prone. It's probably best for those with very oily skin or during acne flare ups. It didn't irritate my skin when it was sensitised though.
  46. Ideal for sensitive skin


    I used this soap mainly when I was treated with acids, My skin is sensitive and it does not harm the skin, but cleans and leaves dry.
  47. Okay for acne prone skin.


    This cleanser is okay if you are struggling with quite bad acne, as it will help to dry the breakouts and assist in healing. However I found it harsh and not suitable for someone with normal skin.
  48. What I've been looking for!


    I have been searching for the perfect cleanser for a while now and I've finally found it. Leaves my skin feeling super clean and firm after each wash. Everyday essential!
  49. love


    I always take this with me when I’m travelling! I love using this during winter as it stops my skin from appearing flaky!
  50. good


    I found an improvement in my skin’s texture after regular use. Very well priced for such an effective product, will be repurchasing!
  51. Light and gentle cleanser


    This cleanser is great- effective at cleaning and removing makeup while also not harsh on the skin and doesn't make your face feel too dry afterwards. It's gentle enough for daily use and quite good value as you only need a tiny bit- I use it with an exfoliating cloth and it works really well. Will definitely continue to purchase.
  52. Good for sensitive skin


    Good for sensitive skin. It works well as a daily cleanser, nice and light.
  53. Avène Cleanance Gel


    I have been buying this cleansing gel for couple of years now. I absolutely think that there is currently no better product on the market, especially if you have a sensitive skin
  54. Didn’t work for me but it might work for you!


    I don’t think this worked so well for my skin. I had a slight rash afterwards as I think it was a little harsh. Not for me but might be if your skin isn’t sensitive.
  55. Didn’t work out for me


    A little too much for my skin. Not the best unfortunately.
  56. Not for me


    I have oily, congested yet dehydrated skin and this didn't do much. It was a little harsh and made my skin quite itchy.
  57. Pleasant


    I really quite liked this cleaner. The smell is pleasant, and it didn't irritate my skin. My skin is quite acne prone, and I didn't notice any detrimental effects in terms of breakouts. However, it wasn't great at completely removing makeup. I found I would always have to double cleans at the end of the day to remove eye makeup, which means I powered through the bottle at great speed. I not oppose...

  58. No from me


    I generally like avene products however this wasn’t for me. When my skin was very sensitive this still caused a bit of uncomfortable stinging while washing. I would recommend AVENE XERAcalm and wash instead for truly sensitive skin.
  59. Lovely


    I have trouble finding a good gel cleanser as I have sensitive skin, this stuff is incredible! My skin feels so clean and soft afterwards without feeling completely stripped back.
  60. Alright but nothing outstanding


    Cleanses the face well, takes all make-up off but that's all. You may find cheaper options.
  61. Great product


    Removes all make up and oils. A little goes a long way! You seriously only need the tiniest bit to clean your face and neck. Great product, will last ages!
  62. Great


    This cleanser left my skin really smooth, made skin very dewy
  63. A real good cleanser.

    Viki J

    After receiving a small sample of this from Priceline, I was intrigued to use this cleansing gel as I have never used anything from the Avene skincare line other then their iconic thermal water spray.

    I must say, this is a good cleanser. It removed all the build ups of oil and dirt from my skin. I know this as when I followed up with a toner, there was no visible excess oils or dirt t...

  64. Great Deep Cleanse


    I have fair, sensitive skin and this is really gentle while providing a deep clean. I have noticed my texture evening out since using this product.

    Love this cleansing gel! So gentle and mild on sensitive skin, but still gets the dirt off. My face feels quite hydrated after use, not dehydrated like with other cleansers.
  66. Good for daily use & cleansing


    I have combination skin and been using this product for 3 months now. you only need a small drop and it forms a good foam to apply all over the face. A light application cleanses the face. It does clears, cleanses and refreshes as it claims. It feel a bit like anti bacterial formula and mild smell makes it for a good daily face wash. I generally apply moisturizer straight after for it to not dry ...

    I cannot recommend this cleanser enough if you have combination oily or break out prone skin! I have tried so many cleansers and this one out does all of them. Leaves my face feeling so so clean but with absolutely no dry feeling to the point where you could easily forget your moisturiser because your skin already feels so perfectly balanced.

  69. great product to fall back on


    i change cleansers quite routinely - constantly using a different brand and experimenting, but i always go back to this whenever my skin gets irritated, or i just need something that i know i can rely on and not break out my skin.
  70. holy grail!


    I have this and am currently using with my husband, we both love it! it definitely helps clear all the junk off of your face and keeps your skin looking crispy clean (fully matte) however if you happen to use this product too often, at least more than once a day you will start to have drier skin.

    I would still recommend for sure, just use a very small amount, gradually.
  71. Idol for oily skin but non dryness


    I have sensitive skin but I still can use the cleanser. It can absolutely clean the skin even just very small amount.
  72. A nice cleanser


    Removes makeup well and cleans the skin, however very similar to a lot of products on the market. Its ok but doesn't stand out.
  73. Goes a long way


    I got this for half price once which is the only reason I tried it out and I was pleasantly surprised. The gel foams up and goes a very long way so this bottle lasted me quite a few months. It cleans the skin nicely and does not leave a residue and I like the scent. I have found another facewash that suits my oily skin better but I would recommend this one, it is a solid product.
  74. Amazing


    I have trouble finding a good gel cleanser as I have sensitive skin, this stuff is incredible! My skin feels so clean and soft afterwards without feeling dry.
  75. Really good


    This is a really good gel. Leaves my face feeling so smooth. Also good to help remove makeup
  76. Wow'd me


    I wasn't expecting too much when I got this but it has quickly become my favourite shower product. I use it for both face and body, and it makes my skin feel ultra clean without feeling stripped, and not many products do that for me. It clears any breakouts I may have and leaves skin feeling soft and supple. The scent it soft and refreshing. Can't fault anything about the formula, except I would m...

  77. Lovely cleansing gel


    Nice face and body cleanser with a great freshening scent. Lathers up well both for facial cleanse and body wash. I have oily combo skin on my face and this is a gentle yet effective deep cleanser. Also works great with my Clarisonic.


    Great cleanser for the price and ingredients! Cleansing was a dream as it foams and really removes dirt and debris, I always remove my makeup prior to cleansing to get best results. Works great with my Clarisonic too. Not drying at all but still made my skin feel clean, fresh and soft, pleasant scent and for combo/oily skin types.
  79. Great cleanser for oily skin types


    I love this for double cleansing, after my nightly oil-cleanse. It gets rid of everything - every bit of makeup, dirt, or oil - left over after a long day at work. It has helped me keep my combo/oily skin free of acne, however, it does occasionally make my skin feel a bit tight and dry. Therefore, I'd recommend this to those who have combo or oily skin only. If you have dry or sensitive skin, this...

  80. Gentle Cleanser


    This is a star gentle cleanser, I have oily/combination skin and it works perfectly as a morning cleanser, not too strong or drying! However, it would need to be used as part of a double cleanse to remove makeup as it is very gentle.
  81. LOVELY light cleanser


    This product is great for those looking for a basic every day cleanser.
    While I do like this product, unfortunately it isn't right for me seeing as I wear a fair bit of make up and cleansing with this doesn't remove everything.
    For those days where I wear little/no make up I'll reach for this product without a doubt.

  85. Skin staple!


    This is the best cleanser I’ve used. It gives a clean feeling without stripping the skin, but doesn’t leave any residue. A little goes a long way and I’ve found it’s done wonders for hormonal pimples and oiliness.
  86. Average


    Cleanses my skin and isnt too drying but definitley is not a wow product. Does what it needs to but is very basic.
  87. It does what it needs to


    Look, it cleans your skin, but it's not going to perform miracles. My skin is about as clear as it can be, but this cleanser certainly hasn't completely rid me of acne and there's nothing this it can do for scarring, so it simply does what it needs to.
  88. Affordable


    A little goes a long way. This cleanser leaves the skin feeling clean, hydrated and super soft. Helps to control my excess oil production. Definitely will be repurchasing this product.
  89. Decent product


    This is a nice cleanser. I like the consistently and it leaves my skin feeling nice and clean. It’s nothing special though and you can find other cleansers on the market that do the same job for half the price. I do like it but wouldn’t rebuy it.
  90. Does its job


    I got this cleanser because it says it's for acne prone skin. It's a nice cleanser and does a nice job. I haven't noticed any difference in my acne but I will continue to use this. Probably won't repurchase though as it's a little pricey for a cleanser
  91. OK, not the best


    Look this does the job, there’s no denying it cleans your face. I used this RELIGIOUSLY when I live in the city, but now I’m back living on the beach I don’t really need it. It was good for awhile, until my skin grew immune to it and starting panicking and breaking out. I had worse acne then when I did when I started it but it was so highly recommended I had to persevere... I reccomend this produc...

  92. Clean, no redness and will last ages


    Used this for a couple of weeks and was fairly impressed. I have combination skin so this was probably a bit overkill as it was a bit drying in some of parts and I have switched since. However if you have oily skin I think this would work a treat. I used it with Clinique Sonic brush and you just need a little bit. Will last a long time so it is well worth it price/size wise.
  93. Great for oily skin


    This cleanser is great for those with oily acne-prone skin. Works quite well at controlling oil, but does have a bit of a scent to it, which doesnt bother most people, but it used to make me sneeze whilst using it (think it was a combination of this and the foamy-ness). I pushed past this though as I really liked this product on my skin.
  94. great for sensitive skin


    a great simple cleanser if you have sensitive skin, it feels very gentle and doesn't dry you out :)
  95. Gentle everyday cleanser


    I bought this cleanser when I had an allergic reacting to some skincare and had a damaged moisture barrier and it saved my acne-prone skin. It is gentle enough to cleanse even the most compromised or sensitive skin and is my go-to on days I'm not wearing makeup. You only need the tiniest amount so a bottle lasts you such a long time.
  96. Excellent


    I have used this for the past ten years and keep coming back to it. Its perfect for dry and sensitive skin!!
  97. So nice!


    I have sensitive skin that gets very irritated with cleansers and this is one of my favourites! It is so gentle and makes my skin so clear! It gets rid of all the makeup and dirt from the day leaving my skin so soft and blemish free. I really do recommend this!
  98. Does the job


    This is a great cleanser, one of the only cleansers that doesn’t dry out your skin completely. I like the jelly texure, although this this targeted at oily skin users it works for my combo skin.
  99. Clean, clear skin

    Lisa Marie

    Avene Cleanance Gel is a great product that clears and cleans.

    It calmed by break-outs and cleans exceptionally well.
  100. Great for troublesome skin


    This product is non comedogenic and was recommended to me by a staff member of adore beauty, It is very gentle and doesn't clog my pores. My acne breakouts have subsided. I would recommend a good moisturizer to be used in conjunction however as the formula is quite drying.
