Hello! my sweet hearts.. 💕💕
A couple of subscribers had requested me to do a full review on Avène gel when I had mentioned it in my previous blogs and instagram posts. So, here I am with the review. Without mumbling any further, let’s just dive into it.
Avène: It is named after a small town Avène, located in southern france, where thermal spring water was discovered (in 1736) and then used to cure many skin related problems.
This history has been beautifully described on their website.
Price: ₹1199 for 200ml of product with a shelf life of 36 months.
Packaging: I loved the cap. Yes! It’s unique and hence caught my attention.🤗 I’ve specially clicked a picture of the cap to show it to you guys. Twist it to get the product and then twist it again to shut. (Okay! I played a little with the cap ~ honest confessions).
Texture: Though the product claims to be a gel, it’s consistency is fluid-y and not gel-like. It is a little on the runnier side and is bright blue-teal in colour which I absolutely love. Its fragrance is mild, something which I am unable to relate to anything. (Oops!)🤷🏻♀️
One of the main ingredient in Avène products is Thermal spring water which has therapuetic properties and soothes irritated skin, allergic conditions and fades away blemishes.
Reduces excess sebum: yes! For sure.I’ve seen a difference myself.
Provides soothing & anti-irritating benefits: yes! It has improved the texture of my skin, does not make it dry and has not broken me out at all.
The verdict: I am absolutely loving this cleansing gel. A little on the pricier side but is worth every single penny. Trust me! I’ve been using it every night for more than 2 months now but the bottle is not even half empty! (I don’t know how?). Those tiny little bumpy zits have gone and my skin feels even. It removes pigmentation, not drastically, but effectively. There is no dryness or itchiness feeling post face wash. Also, a little quantity is enough. Half a coin sized amount is enough for one time wash. All you need to do is take the gel, add few drops of water and rub your palms to lather and then apply it on your face. This way, even lesser quantity is required. (Don’t call me miser now!)
Will I repurchase? Are you kidding me! There is no reason to not to repurchase this amazing cleanser. (It means yes, I am going to repurchase!)
Who can try this out?
Oily, blemish-prone skinned beauties
People looking for a gentle, effective cleanser
People suffering from allergic conditions
