Make-up removal and cleansing: the essential routine for healthy skin

The basis for healthy skin?

Perfect cleansing in the morning and evening. It is an essential part of the skincare routine, even for those who don’t use make-up. Whether in the morning, to refresh the features, remove perspiration and excess sebum from the night; or in the evening, to get rid of make-up and impurities, and prepare it for additional products. Choosing your make-up remover and cleanser is no small matter when you understand their role in your beauty routine.

For this, there is no better solution than formulas containing naturally derived, highly concentrated in Avène thermal spring water and perfectly adapted to the most sensitive skin in eco-designed bottles.

Our range of Essential face cleansers and make-up removers combines effectiveness, tolerance and naturalness for clean and healthy skin in all circumstances.

TESTED AND APPROVED

This mask is fantastic. I recently discovered it, and it's a real joy in my skincare routine. I now use it twice a week after the Avène Gentle Purifying Scrub. My skin feels baby soft after applying it, plus some thermal spring water. I would recommend it.
