Review: Avene Cleanance Range

Hello Beauties!

If you have been following along my YouTube channel as of late you probably would of noticed my skin hasn't been looking its best. Since being diagnosed with PCOS over a year ago I have spent the last 12 months in the search of products to help get my adult acne under control.

I am glad to report that the Avene Cleanance range is on my adult acne approved list! I am currently using the Avene Cleanance Cleansing Gel, Avene TriAcneal EXPERT and Cleanance EXPERT creams as part of my daily skincare routine and now I have the confidence to return to snapchat featuring my bare face. After the first few days of my new routine I noticed that no new breakouts were forming, I am in a few weeks in now and still no new breakouts! All that is left is 4-5 bumps under my skin slowly working their way out that had been there since before my new routine.

Avene Cleanance Cleansing Gel:

This light blue gel comes in a 200mL bottle and right off the bat I loved the packaging of this. The lid is a twist top which opens a small hole to squeeze the product out. This means no more dried up product around the opening and no more wasted product! I use this cleanser every morning and night, and it does a fantastic job at removing any dirt or excess oil without leaving my skin feeling tight.

Avene Cleanance EXPERT:
This is a great lightweight moisturiser perfect for oily and blemish prone skin. I use this everyday after I cleanse my face and I have seen a huge difference in the oiliness of my skin, especially around my T zone. This moisturiser is great under makeup as it absorbed quickly and didn't leave behind any residue.

Avene TriAcneal EXPERT:
This cream comes in a 30mL pump bottle and is a little yellow in colour (which does show up on my skin) so I would recommend using this at night unless you plan on wearing makeup over the top. It claims to help reduce the appearance of blemishes, scarring and the signs of ageing. Like I said, I apply this only at night everyday onto any blemishes and scarring. I noticed a huge difference with it clearing up any pesky pimples however I don't think I have been using it long enough to comment on any effects it has on my scarring.

Overall I am so happy with the results of this line. I did find the Avene TriAcneal EXPERT could leave my skin a little dry around my nose but this was easily fixed by using a moisturising face mask or facial oil on the area whenever I noticed it getting a little flakey.

I would highly recommend giving this line a go if you are struggling to find something to keep blemishes or oily skin under control. #AveneNowICan
