Wonderful

Aline

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.

Doesn't help with acne

Prabhjot

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.

  3. Good cleanser

    Neel

    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...

  6. Good Cleanser

    Madeline

    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...

  7. Great for dry skin

    Lachie

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

    Sylvia

    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.
  9. Ideal for sensitive skin

    Aline

    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.
  10. Okay for acne prone skin.

    Austen

    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.
  11. What I've been looking for!

    Grace

    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!
  12. love

    Sally

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

    Raha

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

    Shelby

    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.
  15. Good for sensitive skin

    Laurel

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

    Lily

    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
  17. Didn’t work for me but it might work for you!

    Jol

    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.
  18. Didn’t work out for me

    Jol

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

    emma

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

    Elise

    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...

  21. No from me

    Emma

    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.
  22. Lovely

    Smaddi

    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.
  23. Alright but nothing outstanding

    Akanksha

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

    Alysia

    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!
  25. Great

    Simon

    This cleanser left my skin really smooth, made skin very dewy
  26. 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...

  27. Great Deep Cleanse

    Sarah

    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.
  28. Good for sensitive skin

    Ka

    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.
  29. Good for daily use & cleansing

    Sydney

    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 ...

  30. Drying

    M

    Personally I found this really drying for my skin. Face felt very tight after. I was also not a fan of the scent.
  31. Absolute Holy Grail

    SBL

    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.

    This cleanser is the reason that my redne...

  32. great product to fall back on

    Jenny

    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.
  33. holy grail!

    shiraz

    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.
  34. Idol for oily skin but non dryness

    Xi

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

    Ellie

    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.
  36. Goes a long way

    Neel88

    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.
  37. Amazing

    Rhiannon

    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.
  38. Really good

    Amanda

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

    Christine

    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...

  40. Lovely cleansing gel

    Bec

    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.
  41. AVÈNE CLEANANCE GEL

    Zhaowei

    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.
  42. Great cleanser for oily skin types

    Ali

    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...

  43. Gentle Cleanser

    Abbey

    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.
  44. LOVELY light cleanser

    Abbey

    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.
    It lathers nicely as I use a cleansing puff and cleanses the sk...

  47. Holy Grail Cleanser

    Karen

    I am onto my second bottle of this cleanser, and have got three friends onto it to... I have sensitive skin and on top of that recently developed an allergy to Sodium Laurel Sulfate. Many SLS free cleansers I tried are creamy or milky or just don't give you that 'squeaky clean' feeling that SLS has made us all so accustomed to. UNTIL Avene Cleanance, it's SLS free but it works just like a normal c...

  48. Skin staple!

    Emby

    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.
  49. Average

    asami

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

    Sarah

    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.
  51. Affordable

    Georgia

    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.
  52. Decent product

    Lesley

    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.
  53. Does its job

    Tayla

    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
  54. OK, not the best

    Darcy

    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...

  55. Clean, no redness and will last ages

    Alexandra

    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.
  56. Great for oily skin

    Bec

    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.
  57. great for sensitive skin

    Jessica

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

    Jess

    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.
  59. Excellent

    afc89

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

    bella

    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!
  61. Does the job

    Zahra

    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.
  62. 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.
  63. Great for troublesome skin

    Natalie

    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.
  64. great for oily skin

    Renee

    when I was getting a lot more breakouts and producing a lot of excess oil, I did love this. as I've gotten older my skin has gotten drier and I just can't use this anymore. except maybe in the summer months. definitely suited to younger oily skin types, just a little drying for me now.
  65. Pretty good

    Kirsty

    This is a pretty good, basic foaming cleanser. Yes, it's full of sulphates; and yes, it can smell a bit like detergent, but it's otherwise a decent cleanser for oily or combo skin. It's feels pretty gentle when you use it, but it can be a bit drying over time as well - so I switched over to something else once the summer ended and my oily summer skin turned back into combo autumn skin!
  66. Great cleanser, a little drying

    Christine

    The cleanser is great for oily acne prone skin, or skin suffering from current breakouts. I have used this cleanser on and off over the last 5 years, and I keep coming back to it when my skin is severely breaking out.

    It does a great job of stripping back the oils on my face and leaving it feeling fresh and cleansed. I only use this once a day, at night, and only every second day.

    Tamara

    This is by far my favourite skincare product of all. I think all great skin start with a good cleanser and this is my go to. It completely cleans make up off, it’s non drying and it keeps any breakouts away. It also helps a lot with oily skin. By far the best facial cleanser
