Avene Tolerance Extreme Range: Cleansing Lotion*

Some time ago this year, I was introduced to Avene through a hotel event. I got to know the brand and what they stand for and quickly fell in love. Their story starts in France and has now spread their reach to so many other countries, of which one of the lucky ones happen to be Australia! The brand is named after an old village located in the Orb Valley in France, centred in the heart of the Haut-Languedoc Regional Park. In this area, the environment is clean and untainted. It is a land that provided lush vegetation and climatic balance.

And I can see why the name is so relevant to the brand. The brand seeks to be our saviour is restoring our skin to the balanced and untainted state as it was when we were born. Our skin is exposed to so many substances, such as pollutants, radicals, sun rays... and so on, that over time put a toll on our delicate skin. Avene caters not just for one, two nor three... but all skin types! No matter if you have oily, dry, sensitive or reactive skin, Avene is safe to use on all.

Recently, I was sent some new products to try in the NEW Tolerance Extreme Range. The range is focused and designed to treat the needs of mild sensitive to hypersensitive skin with hydration in the simplest way possible. These products only contain the essentials, meaning that it only has eight core ingredients. In the range, it includes three new products. And over the course of my next few blog posts, I will review them to you.

One of the products that I've had the utmost pleasure of trying is the Avene Tolerance Extreme Cleansing Lotion. This lotion is one of the very few "non-rinse" formulas that actually work and does not irritate the skin. Most "non-rinse" cleansing formulas leave unwanted residues on the face, combining that of the impurities on your face that tend to cause your skin to react badly to it. These residues, if left on the skin for too long, cause you to have an uncomfortable wear on the skin. This cleansing lotion is extremely different!

The Avene Cleansing Lotion has a milky, moisturising consistency that is created to gently remove makeup and impurities, such as dirts and oils. It is used for both morning and night and works by having micro-thin lipid droplets that softly break down the impurities and gets carried away with the cleanser. You do not need to use any water to remove this product, which definitely saves a lot of time in comparison to your traditional cleanser.

Over time, you would see noticeable skincare benefits taking effect to your skin. This includes;

  • providing long-lasting hydration
  • offering a significant reduction to sensitivity (as it claims)
  • mimicking the function of healthy skin
  • preserving the hydration levels in your skin
  • providing cleaner and softer skin
 On a personal note, I have been using this product religiously for the past week or so and have greatly enjoyed it. It is like no other cleanser I have ever tried. My cheeks tend to be quite sensitive, especially due to the constant changing weathers and my skin has never been more thankful. This cleanser is to be used to clean your wash and would potentially replace your regular cleanser. You would warm up the product between your fingertips and gently work the product in circular motions around your face and neck. Once you had a thorough spread over your face, you would use a cotton pad to remove the product from your face.

Each Avene Product has sterilising caps that help keep the product fresh and eliminates the use of preservatives in their products. This is a great way to remove any unnecessary ingredients that would affect sensitive skin. Avene have taken packaging to a new level and this is a great innovative way to conserve the integrity of the product for longer.

I highly recommend Avene and their New Tolerance Extreme Range if you have sensitive, reactive or super dry skin. Avene products will surprise you at how effectively and yet, gently can help your skin feel healthier! The Avene Tolerance Extreme Cleansing Lotion can be found in local priceline stores, or online for $47.95 of 200mL tube.  If you have any further questions, leave me a comment below!
