REVIEW // Avene Gentle Gel Cleanser

The product I'm talking about today isn't the kind of product that I can say has changed my world, but it is a really lovely product to use, It's the Avene Gentle Gel Cleanser, the wash off version, which is just a super simple cleanser to be honest, it's very light but still cleans deep and isn't too stripping, and as the name suggests, this is very gentle so it's perfect for sensitive skins as most Avene products are. I tend to use this either in the shower in the morning or with my Foreo Luna Mini and it actually works very nicely with this, I think because it is so gentle, the two work quite nicely together to exfoliate the skin. I can suffer sometimes from changing up my skincare routine, my skin reacts to new things being added to the mix but I've had no issues with this product at all. It's got a faint soapy smell which worried me initially because soap does not work well with my skin, it literally just strips it of everything and leaves it incredibly sensitive but this is very mild so my skin didn't have any reactions to it.


I can suffer a little from Eczema if I'm not careful in the winter months when it gets particularly cold so I think this will be a great addition if I do get a flare up because it's not the type of product that's going to irritate my skin, it's also a good one for if you're suffering from a breakout because again, there isn't anything in this that is likely to cause irritation but it will still clean deep. This is targeted at normal to combination skin but my skin is going through a dry spell at the minute and it hasn't caused any additional dryness so it should work well on dry skin types too. Packaging wise, this comes in the standard Avene packaging, frosted plastic bottle with the Orange & Green Avene branding, It's a pump bottle as well which dispenses the perfect amount of product and is useful when stumbling around in the morning. I think this would be a good cleanser for boys as well, packaging is neutral, it's scent is soapy rather than being too feminine and the pump adds extra convenience so if you're looking to get your boyfriend into looking after there skin, this could be a good one.


This is normally £11.50 but I found it here for £9.20
