You’re Never Too Old


 Todays post could have been Face Mask Friday but it’s really a mini review of a LINE of products so you know, it doesn’t really count. I had planned to post about the Avene Cleanance range over a month ago when I received this fun package but my initial feelings were not as expected so I wanted to give them a proper test run before sharing my opinion on them with you. It’s a fairly extensive range of products aimed at clearing skin without stripping it and the latest campaign ‘You’re Never Too Old’ suggests that those of us still suffering with ‘teenage’ skin into (and out of) our twenties can find products that are kinder than the abrasive cleansers of our youth.



 My skin is up and down, it can be great and then I’ll suffer a monster breakout from nowhere so I was excited to try Cleanance and see how it helped to balance things. Unfortunately for the first few days I tried all three products above and found my skin to be much drier and far from clear.. I was ready to write it all off as not for me but I really wanted it to work for me so I persevered. After cutting out the Micellar water I discovered that that was what didn’t agree with me.. of all things.. a cleansing water?!? I can’t tell you that I”ve experienced amazing results with the mask or the moisturiser but the dryness issue is no more. The moisturiser is a nice base for makeup and something I’ll reach for as a barrier if I’m experiencing skin issues but I’ve had some serious stress spots this week (moving house) and these products haven’t touched them so although I don’t hate them (as I first suspected) they just don’t do it for me. I’d be really interested to hear from you if you’ve tried any of the Cleanance products and whether they work for you. I”ve heard really good things about them so I don’t know if I’m expecting too much, perhaps they work better in a long term skincare routine.. I’d love to know your thoughts but for now? Not for me.

Cleanance is available online here

    I like the idea of the campaign, just a shame the products didn’t wow you! Murad make good products for adult acne, just a lot pricier unfortunately !

    Heard so many great things about Avene products! I love their packaging and it sounds great that they do good for breakouts too 🙂

    Thanks for the review. Hope you have a lovely day! ♥

    I find the Vichy Normaderm range to be fantastic for clearing up breakouts without stripping my skin – the anti-imperfection anti-ageing cream (light green tube) works wonders for my combo skin (although I can’t speak for the anti-wrinkle claim) xx

    My boyfriend swears by the cleanance gel cleanser – he loves it. I can’t even touch it with my dry sensitive skin but he suffers from oily skin and swears by it. Previous cleansers had left his skin dehydrated but not the cleanance. He uses it with nivea for men face cream stuff normally or if avenue has been on offer with the cleanance k emulsion. Again he loves that.

    ScoobyDoo!! I love him! On the acne/oil issue…well, I’ve been taking Roaccutan for 22 years non-stop. I’m 41 years old. What a horrendous skin I’ve got, no collagen, no elastin but plenty of comedones! ARGH!
