For me, having both oily and sensitive skin are a very tough skin type combo to have. With my oily skin, I’m very much prone to pore blockage and breakouts. Plus that shiny “nagmamantika” skin look is kinda not appealing right?(hello, oil blotting paper! my long-time bestfriend). As for the other, having a sensitive skin added to my dilemma because it exacerbates everything caused by my oily skin. And sadly, I cannot use just any products available in the market since these products would make my skin react untowardly.
So recently, I was invited to check out the Eau Avène Thermale’s The Cleanance Shine-Free Week Sale in SM Makati. It was a 6-day pocket event showcasing different Avène Cleanance products suitable for oily skin type and even for those with sensitive skin. They also have a skin expert on site giving FREE consultation and suggestions on what Avène Cleanance products work best on your skin.
Going back to the Sale event, This is what’s best when you purchase something on sale like this. FREEBIES! Avène gave away a FREE Cleanance Gel in 100 ml and a 50 ml Thermal Spring Water for those who purchased Cleanance products worth Php4000 in SM Makati. Not just that, 2 FREE 20 ml bottles of Cleanance Gel with a 50 ml Thermal Spring Water were given away for every purchase of Cleanance products worth Php2000 in participating Watsons branches which happened till September 30.
Were you able to get these freebies?
CLEANANCE GEL FIRST IMPRESSION
I’ve been using Avène products for quite some time now specifically the Thermal Spring Water(for my face) and some of their Hydrance products which I am using on my face and legs. Honestly, I really find it effective. More details about my review here: http://www.girlandboything.com/beauty/a-water-that-moisturizes-your-skin-avene-thermal-spring-water/
Eau Thermale Avène Cleanance skincare line is formulated with gentle and exclusive active ingredients to regulate sebum production without drying the skin while reducing the appearance of blemishes. Skin is purified, hydrated, and mattified day after day.
So this time, I was able to try one of Avène Cleanance products(still using up to now) which is the Cleanance Cleansing Gel. If you see the photos above which shows the before usage, during, and after. Look at my oily face on the 1st photo, that’s how oily my face is, no matter what make up I put on, I still end up using my oil blotting paper a lot of times. As in a lot!.
Then I used Cleanance Cleansing Gel on my face to cleanse those excess oil. If you have noticed it’s not that lathery(it is soap-free) and the smell is just mild which is favorable for me because too much fragrance can also cause irritation on skin and the skin rreaction could be worse when you have a sensitive skin like me.
On the 3rd photo, you will see that my skin is very clear from oil. I feel refreshed and clean. It looked matte as well.Plus the Cleanance Cleansing Gel did not make my skin dry. In fact, it is soft to touch. Love it. Usually my face after 3-4 hours is already oily, but when I started using this product, I have observed that sebum production on my face was lessened.
Aside from the visible results, what I also love about the Cleanance Cleansing Gel is the packaging(the bottle cap). It has a 2-step turn opening- you’ll hear 2 clicks before you can acually squeeze the gel product out of the bottle. Avène made it uniquely this way to make sure that after you open and use it, the chance of the product being contaminated is lessened(just don’t forget to close it ok?).
Avène Cleanance Cleansing Gel is is available in 3 sizes.
Other Cleanance Products available:
- Cleanance Micellar(Php630)
- Cleanance Mat(Php1,775)
- Cleanance Expert(Php1,325)
- Cleanance Spot
- Cleanance Solaire(Php1,915)
You may find the Avène Cleanance products a bit pricey, but you know what? it is totally worth it because it is safe, effective, and will not harm my skin. I hope You should give it a try. Plus all Avène products are
I hope that you get good results when you use Avène products as well. Share me your story ok?
