I have just found my Holy Grail cleanser / daily face wash. This product was recommended to me by a friend, whose sister also uses it for her sensitive skin. Prior to this, I was using Skinfood’s Seaweed Cleansing Gel. It was OK but not perfect. Compared to the cleanser from Skinfood, I feel that this one from Avene is better as it cleanses better. I now have less breakouts and white heads. Also, my face feels cleaner and my complexion has gotten brighter as well.
I found this gem at Watsons (Ang Mo Kio Hub) for S$37.70. I love this cleanser because it doesn’t foam up at all when I use it, unlike most other cleansers I’ve used. I’ve come to realise that foam is actually really bad for my skin and breaks me out all the time. It also smells nice. It’s not a makeup remover so it’s better to use this after taking off the day’s gunk. It also protects the skin and provides hydration of the upper layers of the epidermis.
Avene has been sold here for quite a long time but I somehow always overlooked it because it is sold at pharmacies and I don’t trust drugstore brands. I had taken the plunge once before with Vichy’s cleanser for acne-prone skin but that broke me out worse and made my skin oilier than normal. I don’t see myself changing a cleanser anytime soon and I highly recommend this one from Avene to all those who have sensitive skin.
