The Avène Tolérance Extrême Cleansing Lotion is perfect for any skin type, and especially for people with sensitive, dry or damaged skin. As a sufferer of rosacea and dry skin I have to be extremely careful about what products I use on my face and everything from the Avène range gets a 5 star rating from me! The lotion is gentle on your skin, yet cleans perfectly. I like to massage it in and wash it off with a spray of Avène Thermale Spring Water, then apply the Avène Tolérance Extrême Moisturiser (I also top up with the Avène Eye Cream and Cold Cream Lip Balm at night). I haven't found another product that leaves skin so smooth and soft afterwards and continued use for dry or irritated skin shows a rapid improvement in condition. The Cleansing Lotion has a pleasant mild smell that doesn't dominate and it's perfect for using day and night. I highly recommend the Cleansing Lotion and all products from the Avène range, I've yet to find anything better!
Back in the days when I had sensitive and dry skin, I had trouble finding a good cleanser that is suitable for my skin condition. I was recommended to try this cleansing lotion and I love it. It is designed for sensitive skin and removes makeup effortlessly without drying out my skin. However, it is expensive for a cleanser.
I adore avenue products and this gorgeous skin cleanser works a treat on my skin. I tend to suffer from sensitive skin and found this cleanser to be super gentle on my skin causing no irritation at all and yet leaving skin super clean and clear and really hydrated. You use this cleanser in a different way to other cleansers, instead of rinsing off with water after massaging in I remove the product with cotton pads. I love that it's free from chemicals and nourished skin with natural ingredisnts and I don't need to use a lot so I think it's great value for money. Fragrance free and super gentle, perfect for sensitive skin I love it, it's well worth the price and I would recommend it.
This is an extremely effective makeup remover and skin cleanser in one.
For reference, my skin is very dry, and very sensitive. I have the skin type to which this lotion cleanser is formulated for.
To use it to remove makeup, I deposit a small amount into my hand and gently rub it into my skin and lashes. I generally let it sit for a minute to maximise the amount of time for it to break down my makeup. I then either rinse it off with water, or take a baby wipe and wipe it off my skin. My skin is left clear, fresh, and soft! It dissolves all my layers of skincare (essence, serum, moisturiser, sunscreen) and all my makeup (foundation, concealer, setting powder, blush, brow pomade, water proof mascara, no-budge cream eyeshadow, and long wear lipstick) with no problem at all. This really impresses me because I struggle to remove my waterproof mascara with other makeup removers.
To cleanse my skin, I once again deposit a small amount into my hands and then gently rub it into my facial skin. If my skin is feeling really dry, I won’t rinse it off (as per Avene’s instructions). When I do this it doesn’t break me out. When I want to apply actives, I will gently rinse off the lotion with warm water and dab dry. Once again, my skin is left soft and calm. My dry skin really loves the moisture that this lotion gives my skin. It completely lives up to it’s claim of being gentle for the skin - my skin has never stung after using this lotion or turned red from irritation. It really works for my very sensitive skin type. I think Avene have delivered on their promise of a gentle, yet effective, lotion cleanser for the skin - I will repurchase this because my skin loves it so much.
The packaging itself is a simple plastic tube with a lid on the bottom. I like packaging designed this way because the product collects at the lid due to gravity. For me, this means no frantic shaking to get the last bit of product out, so I appreciate the smart design.
I find this lotion quite cost effective, you only need a little bit at a time. My tube has lasted me 4 months so far.
I have oily/combination sensitive skin which is prone to pimples. This product is AMAZING at removing make up and dirt on your face. I squirt one or two pumps onto a circular cotton pad and wipe my face before getting into the shower. It removes the majority of the heavy make up allowing my shower wash to remove the 'left over' bits around my forehead etc. Amazing product, never had any issues with it at all. Would defiantly recommend for a daily face cleanser.
This Avene cleanser is totally perfect for sensitive skin. So gentle that I used it post laser treatment on my face. It is a quality product and is so free from preservatives that it has an expiry from first opening. There is a seal proof dispenser that allows the product out but nothing nasty to get in. It is a little pricy but it i believe for the quality of the cream, not just a hyped up packaging cost. I use every last drop. I even cut the tube before I bin to get out every last bit. Rosacea friendly product. Recommended !!
When my skin was suffering from a huge but unusual bout of sensitivity a while ago, this was one of the very few skincare products I tried that didn't irritate my skin further. Having skin sensitivity issues is a hard thing to deal with especially if you're someone like me who really loves to take care of their skin. Sensitivity issues usually means your list of viable products is very short, which is why I really appreciated the approach that Avene bring to skincare for people with sensitivities.
The tolerance extreme cleansing lotion incorporates their 'Sterile Cosmetics' technology. Through the use of sterile manufacturing and a special self-sealing dispenser in the packaging, it avoids the need for added preservatives in their formula, which is fantastic if you experience allergies or sensitivity to preservatives in skincare. It also means less chance of foreign particles or bacteria to contaminate your product which can wreak havoc on your skin as well.
This cleansing lotion also has a very short ingredients list, again aimed at reducing the chances of sensitivities. It’s free from the other common ingredients too (surfactants, fragrance, alcohol) which can trigger reactions in sensitive-skinned people. It's meant to used in a way that your wipe the lotion off your face with a cotton pad or facial towel instead of rinsing off like other cleansers. While it did feel really soothing and comfortable for my skin, I found that I had to work harder to remove my eye makeup. In saying that, I didn't experience any stinging or irritation in my eye area.
The reason I liked this cleanser lotion was because I felt like it was able to cleanse my skin effectively while respecting my sensitive skin at the time and maintaining maximum comfort and the health of my skin. I was able to use this through my temporary battle with sensitive skin and I feel like it really helped me to recover until it went back to it's original state.
Really great cleanser, it is super smooth and moisturising. I have quite sensitive skin so I was hesitant to try this, but it worked great! My skin felt clean, soft and without the itchy tightness it usually does after using a new cleanser. Very impressed, I would recommend this to a friend!
I just purchased the Tolérance cream cleanser a couple of weeks ago. My skin loves it! It's so easy to use, you apply it to your face and massage in small circles, then remove it with makeup removal cotton pads and your skin instantly feels soft and clean. This works so well for someone like me who has hypersensitive skin and hates spending ages removing makeup! Thanks Avène for another genious product!
I love this cleanser, it is so gentle on my face and as with all Avene products they are outstanding, it leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean.
I highly recommend Kiehl's Centella Recovery Skin Salve as the white cream is highly absorbent and fantastic for dry or irritated skin. When this product is applied your skin is instantly relieved and the cream soaks in, not leaving any unwanted oils or excess shine to face. After about a hour the dry/ irritated skin has hugely improved and after a day of applying the product your skin will be feeling relieved and recovered! My initial thoughts after using this product was amazing, my skin had recovered and was feeling fresh and back to normal. I highly recommend this product as after my first use I knew that I could rely on this product for any issues on my face as it is smooth and easy to apply leaving excellent results to my face.
