Looking for a solution for acne for sensitive skin? The Eau Thermale Avène Cleanance Blemish Kit is pretty impressive. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and love the products. You can also enter the Avene Clear Skin Challenge for a chance to win a five-day trip for two to Avene France! Details are at the end of this post.
The Avene kit, which is $29.99 at Dermstore, includes the following products:
Cleanance Gel Soapless Cleanser: This is a rather nice gel cleanser that removes dirt and oil, yet does not dry the skin. Both the cleanser and toner are formulated with patent-pending Glyceryl laurate, a substance that prevents blemishes by limiting sebum production.
Cleanance Toner: The toner is paraben-free and does a good job at removing excess oil.
Cleanance K Cream-gel: This is my favorite product in the kit. I love the ingredient selection for it! The treatment lotion/gel is formulated with Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, and BHA Salicylic Acid for a nice acne treatment combo that will exfoliate and kill bacteria. It also contains a mattifier for oil control and Pumpkin Seed Oil to regulate sebum production. That all makes for a unique combination of products that I feel work together beautifully.
Avène Thermal Spring Water: A soothing thermal spring water spritz that is great to spray on for a bit of skin softening moisture. So, if the treatment gel irritates your skin at all, spray this on for some soothing balance.
