Review of Avène Cleanance Gel Cleanser:

Hello everyone! Today it’s a skincare day review, because we are going to talk about a great and affordable cleanser: Avène Cleanance Gel Cleanser.

Who is it for?

This soapless cleansing gel is perfect for those who have oily or acne prone skin and need an everyday cleanser that gently but effectively helps to purify your skin, while respecting its physiological pH. However, since this extremely gentle cleanser doesn’t contain harsh active ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, it works really well even on normal or dry skin, especially after a humid hot summer day. 

What’s good about it?

I have been using the Avène Cleanance Gel Cleanser almost every day since I have bought it, nearly a month ago now. I especially love using this cleanser at the end of the day, as a second cleanser, after removing all my make up with a specific product like the amazing Body Shop Camomile Waterproof Eye & Lip Makeup Remover (my review here) and the Camomile Cleansing Butter. However, this is also awesome as a first cleanser for your morning skincare routine.

The light consistency of this aquamarine gel becomes soft and soapy once you have massage it on your damp face. Then you can rinse it away with warm water. It’s really easy to use!

Avène Cleanance Gel can cleanse gently and effectively your face, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and balanced, but not dry or tight. It can even help calm sensitive skin!

This hypoallergenic and paraben-free gel is also fragrance-free. Plus, it contains Avène Thermal Spring Water, a great soothing ingredient; Cucurbita Pepo, a vegetal origin extract, which contributes to reduce the excess of sebum, and zinc gluconate, an amazing anti-inflammatory ingredient.

The packaging is also great and easy to use; the small opening on the top of the bottle can assure you that there will be no waste of product (in fact you will only need a small amount of gel to clean your entire face, so a little bit of it goes a long way). 

What’s not so good about it?

Nothing, really. This is a very good and effective cleanser. Plus, the huge bottle of 300 ml. is, beyond doubt, a beauty bargain.

You can buy it in every store near you that sell Avène products or online here.

Final thoughts!

I really love skincare products, especially after my acne treatment that dried out my skin so badly that I needed to change my entirely skincare routine! So I really recommend this cleanser gel, to everyone actually, not only to those who have oily/acne-prone skin. It is a really great everyday cleanser, affordable and very effective.

Review of the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel:

Hello everyone! 🙂 Today it’s a skincare review day and we are going to talk about the awesome Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel. It’s peachy color is perfect for this autumn season and “halloweeny” week! LOL

Who is it for?

Everyone who wants a smooth, clean and reborn skin every morning! 

What’s good about it?

I love the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel from the bottom of my heart because it’s a pleasure to use it and it will give you the best skin in the morning when you usually are a grumpy cat… maybe because, like me, you are not a morning person (FYI, I hate mornings!).

The pumpkin enzyme helps to deep cleanse your pores and gently dissolves the bonds that bind dead cells into skin’s surface, without irritation for a balanced complexion. Also, the heavenly lightly smell of pumpkin takes you straight to the autumn/halloween mood!

Moreover, this cleanser removes even your makeup, but I would recommend using it as a first cleanser in the morning or second in the evening and let your skin enjoy its great ingredients; the pumpkin enzyme, Omega 6, the Vitamin A, E and C (they do tons of good stuff, including protecting against free radicals and restoring smooth skin texture) and also the Oskia’s MSM (which has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and calm your skin).

First, I massage the product onto dry skin, using 2-3 pumps for my whole face, for a couple of seconds. When I want to remove it, I simply add a little bit of water to emulsify it (the gel turns into a milky smooth texture), then I rinse it off for good with several splash of warm water.

The Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is suitable for any skin type.

What’s not so good about it?

I know, the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is a little bit pricey (the bottle has only 100ml in it), but it’s worth the hype because this gel is awesome and a little bit of it goes a long way; you only need a small amount, 2-3 pumps max., for your whole face! 🙂 

Final thoughts!

I love Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel because is an amazing everyday cleanser if you’re in for a regular 5 seconds of luxury. Moreover, it has a combination of great ingredients that all help to resurface, rejuvenate and brighten your skin whilst eliminating every dead cell; it’s more than just a cleanser! 😉

Ciao a tutti! 🙂 Oggi è tempo di skincare e parleremo del magnifico Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel e il suo color zucca è perfetto per la stagione autunnale e ovviamente Halloween! LOL 

Per chi è?

Tutti coloro che vogliono una pelle liscia, pulita e rinata ogni mattina!

Cosa c’è di buono?

Amo l’Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel dal profondo del cuore perchè è un piacere usarlo e vi dará una pelle fantastica alla mattina quando la maggior parte di noi diventa Grumpy Cat... perchè forse come me non siete delle persone mattiniere! 😉 

L’enzima della zucca aiuta a pulire in profondità i vostri pori e gentilmente dissolve la pelle morta rimasta sul viso, senza irritare o inaridire. Il leggero profumo di zucca vi porterà sicuramente nel mood verso il weekend di Halloween! 

Questo prodotto rimuove anche il makeup, ma suggerisco di utilizzarlo come primo cleanser al mattino o come secondo alla sera dopo esservi struccate per bene così da poter godere degli ingredienti naturali contenuti all’interno come l’enzima della zucca, l’Omega 6, le vitamine A, E e C (queste ultime proteggono dai radicali liberi e ristorano la vostra pelle) e infine l’Oskia MSM (che contiene proprietà anti-infiammatorie per calmare e lenire).

Per prima cosa io massaggio il prodotto su pelle asciutta, utilizzando 2-3 pumps per tutto il viso, per un paio di secondi. Quando devo rimuoverla, aggiungo un pó di acqua per emulsionare la texture (trasformando il gel in una consistenza più lattiginosa), alla fine lo sciacquo per bene con tanta acqua tiepida.

L’Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel è adatto a tutti i tipi di pelle.

Lo potete trovare qui

Cosa non mi convince?

Lo so, l’Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel è un pochino costoso (la bottiglia ha soltanto 100ml), ma ne vale veramente la pena perchè questo gel è magnifico e ne si usa poco alla volta, per cui vi durerà almeno 3/4 mesi!

Considerazioni finali!

Adoro questo prodotto perchè è un fantastico cleanser giornaliero se volete sentire sulla pelle 5 minuti di lussuria. Poi ha una combinazione di ingredienti davvero molto buoni, che vi aiuteranno a ringiovanire e far risplendere la vostra pelle eliminando anche le cellule morte; è molto più di un cleanser fidatevi! 😉 

P.S. L’INCI lo trovate poco prima delle immagini del prodotto, come sempre! 🙂
