Avene Cleanance Purifying Mask Review

Dear Beauties,

Hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing weekend. I am a big fan of Avene skin care products and they have worked  beautifully for me in the past. I have four of their products out of which Avene Thermal Spring Water (a must-try for sensitive skin), Avene Cleanance Gel, which is my absolute favorite face wash and Avene Apaisant Hydratant Serum that I have already reviewed on IMBB. Today, I will be reviewing a scrub cum face mask from their “Cleanance” range which is specifically designed for oily to acne prone skin.

My Experience with Avene Cleanance Purifying Mask:

I have combination skin which changes according to the weather and place. In Mumbai, my skin tends to get extremely oily whereas in Pune it tends to be more combination to dry. Due to this, my skin behaves abnormally and requires special attention. I have been using Avene products since a year now and these are my absolute favourite, especially their thermal spring water is a must try for every skin type and Cleanance gel face wash is perfect for combination to oily skin! Avene Cleanance range is specifically designed for oily to acne prone skin. Even though my skin is relatively free of pimples, but I do tend to get zits a lot! This cleanance purifying mask is more of scrub plus mask as it contains small white beads which gently exfoliates the skin.

The consistency of the mask is very much like mud masks but on thinner side. It spreads easily on skin. I let it dry for 5 to 10 minutes and gently rinse it off with water. After use, the skin immediately feels bright, clean and clear! It does even out my skin tone to a great extent. The pores appear smaller, almost invisible. The exfoliator beads are gentle on the skin and do not feel abrasive at all. It does help in removing the dead skin cells effectively.  Overall, I am in love with this product!

The mask also contains glycolic acid and salicylic acid which are excellent for oily to acne prone skin.  It works well for my combination skin as well and does not dry out the skin like other mud masks in the market. No more stretchy skin or dry, but the skin feels soft and supple.
