AVENE CLEANANCE MASK
The packaging is just as a normal tube moisturizer nothing too fancy but also convenient because you can choose how much you take out. The texture is a bit on the thicker side and there are slight granules that you can feel very slightly when applying it. There is a slight fragrance to the mask and it kind of smells like soap ad a bit of medicine. I know a weird combination but don't worry its not too over powering. It vanishes soon after you have finished applying it so it doesn't bother you in any way.
You have to cleanse your facial like you would usually and then apply a thin layer and leave it for about 10 minutes to do its magic. I didn't feel a burning sensation which I knew that my skin wont be reacting to the mask. I noticed that if my skin feels hot or I have a burning sensation then my skin breaks out the next day. I usually use a muslin cloth soaked in warm water to remove the mask as that's much easier and the warmth from the cloth kind of steams the face and opens up the clogs at the same time.
Once removed the mask and had shower my face felt fresh and lighter. My skin did feel a little bit dry but didn't feel tight. I usually use a toner and do my usual skincare routine so my skin didn't dry out and neither did I get any dry patches. The skin felt smoother and more awake I would say. I mainly use this mask during the summer here in Hong Kong as I feel it does a good job in deep cleaning my complexion. The other little I like to do with this mask is to use it as a scrub because it has little granules and is quite nice as a scrub. Not too harsh on the skin and really does reveal newer skin after you have used it. Kind of like a two in one product which I like, that is doesn't break out my skin. If my skin has broken out, I always use this mask as it calms my skin and my pimples reduce in size as well. So it helps my skin settle down a bit. If I can even use it more than once on my skin and it doesn't break out so when I feel my skin is a bit oily I use this immediately and my oiliness reduces as well.
Overall I would say that this is a good mask and will help you give your complexion a deep clean and unclog your pores during hot and humid weather. So if you have oil or even if your blemish prone then give this ago.
