Sensational Skincare: Avene Milk Cleanser

Friday, 5 June 2015

There's a new cleanser love in my life.....

Avene milk cleanser review


And it goes by the name of Avene Gentle Milk Cleanser. It has a lovely light, creamy consistency and it isn't at all runny. Usually when I think of milk cleansers I think of a runny liquid that's messy to use but this is the exact opposite. It comes with a handy pump which is ideal for controlling the amount dispensed (hands up who always pours out too much cleanser *raises hand*). This can be plopped onto a cotton wool pad and swiped around the face but my preferred method is applying it to wet skin and patting it off with a muslin cloth.

I always remove my makeup with a cleansing oil first, followed by this cleanser. It's very effective at removing the last traces of makeup and there's never any traces of dirt/makeup left. I never would've thought that such a gentle cleanser would leave my skin feeling clean and for that reason I've always used a more abrasive cleanser such as the Origins GinZing scrub cleanser. While these type of cleansers are fine to use they're probably not the best to be using all the time on my sensitive/eczema prone skin so I'll definitely be checking out more milk/cream based cleansers from now on. It also leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and plump. I suffer from severely dry/dehydrated skin and after just a few weeks of use I noticed my skin looking brighter and feeling more hydrated. It also didn't sting my eye area and it didn't irritate my eczema either. Lovely!

It's a little pricey at the €15 mark but it in my opinion is so worth it if you have dry/sensitive skin. And besides it's always in the 3 for 2 offers at Boots.

I've been a huge fan of Avene's products for about a year now and I've yet to be disappointed with their products. Their all really good quality, gentle on sensitive skin and are reasonably priced. I'd 100% recommend their products to anyone!

- Avene products can bought in Boots stores nationwide or Boots online.
