I've been using Avene for the last few weeks. I love it. It's surprised me that it removed all my makeup. Not that I wear tons, but mineral makeup can be persnickety. It takes off eye makeup, too, without burning my eyes or leaving a film.

I've been using PC's Resist cleanser, which was good at first, but there's something in that whole series my skin doesn't love. The Avene cleanser doesn't seem widely available, do you get it from Skinstore.com?

I bought it at SkincareRx for 25% off, but I have only seen 20% sales ever since. Skinstore also carries it, and they regularly have 20% sales. I'd be surprised if someone wasn't having a President's Day sale right now.

The Avene is very soothing and gentle.

I looked at SkincareRx and couldn't find it-- maybe I'm looking for the wrong thing?

There is nothing wrong with you. Not one single thing. Any fault lies with the fashion/cosmetic/marketing industry that has trained you with false proof to believe that you’re not perfect.

This is the cleanser, Veuve:  http://skincarerx.com/Avene-Extremely-Gentle-Cleanser-for-Intolerant-Skin.html

And, yes, it's sold at a lot of places, including dermstore, which always has free shipping. Also, I apologize for being misleading. Even when there are sales and sale codes, it appears that Avene (like Jane Iredale) does not benefit. It's always $22. (Poppy, the one you linked to isn't the from Lisa's recommendations, not that there's anything wrong with that! :D  It's this one: http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=168124&catid=21222)

See 02:15 in her review: http://www.lisaeldridge.com/video/1694/my-favourite-skincare-products-part-one/

Here is the Avene website, where it describes the product and links to other vendors: http://www.aveneusa.com/extremely_gentle_cleanser_for_in/

As a side note, when I received my bottle, I thought I'd use it up very quickly, but after three weeks, I have barely made a dent in it. And I often use two applications at night, just to make sure there is no color left on the cotton pad before I wipe my face clean with a damp washcloth.

Avene cleansers are really great. Perfect for sensitive skin but at the same time does a good job of cleansing.    The Scrub for sensitive skin is also super.  Do not forget the thermal water for hot summer months.

If you want to try getting some Avene on sale, Skinwest has theirs marked down right now.  I don't see the Extremely Gentle Cleanser - just the Gentle Cleanser for Intolerant Skin.  It is $16.50.

Could there be that much of a difference, ya think?

That's the one Lisa recommends, for Intolerant Skin.

Perhaps they changed the name since she did the video.

I just ordered this through SkinCareRx, using the MUA20 code. Plus I had a bunch of Bonus Points, so it was only $13.00 shipped.

It worked???  :eek:

Last time, I couldn't get the discount on Avene, just the other product in my cart.

Lucky duck!

Want to order some NOW - but, do you tissued it off, or can it be rinsed off?

  • Complexion: NC 15 winter, NC 20 summer. Still oily.
  • Eyes: Blue
  • Hair: *Very* fine + wavy. Middle / dark blonde (my natural hair color) with some highlights.

I got mine day before yesterday (fast shipping!) and of course started using it right away.

Anne, the directions say to tissue it off, which I did the first time I used it. But this morning I rinsed it off after using it with my Clarisonic and it rinses off just fine. The texture seems to be halfway between a gel and a cleansing milk, if that makes any sense (no foam at all).
