AVENE CLEANANCE K CREAM-GEL
A soft cream that is supposed to help with eliminating clogged pores, blackheads, and blemishes to reveal a brighter, clearer complexion. It is also recommended that you use it once a day as it works as an exfoliating moisturizer. I usually either wear it on the day if I feel my skin will get really oily but most of the time I apply it in the night.
The cream is light weight and even though it looks rich it isn't very thick once you start applying it onto your skin. It does get absorbed really fast and doesn't leave an oily or sticky reside behind. I do some time feel a bit of sting on my face when I am applying the cream but the minute its been absorbed, the feeling vanishes so it doesn't last a long time. I did notice that when ever I applied this cream that my skin much less oilier and felt less greasy when I did go out and come back home. It wasn't exactly a matte effect but more like a semi-matte feel. I used this mainly when I was on holiday where it was hot and humid and my skin did have the odd blemish or two. The good thing was that while using this my blemishes didn't get worse, as in didn't turn red or wasn't painful. It was just a little bump and subsided within a day or two. I really didn't notice a difference when it came to blackheads or clogged pores as my pores aren't very big. As it is a exfoliating cream as well, my skin did feel softer and smoother and it did reduce my white-heads appearing. The one thing that did put me off was that there was a slight fragrance to it, which wasn't that nice. It smelt a bit like medicine but it wasn't too over powering and disappears very fast, making it very tolerable.Applying foundation was a breeze, it didn't look patchy or didn't flake throughout the day.
A good cream to have with you in the summer time, specially if like me you have the occasional break out and your skins more on the oily side. It will help you to keep your blemish prone skin a bit under control and help you balance your oily skin. You wont get a matte look but at least your T-Zone wont be an oily mess. I will definitely recommend this for you to give ago specially during summer time.
