Avene invited me down to London for their evening of a lavish meal in a french restaurant with expert dermatologist Dr Sam Bunting and to talk all things skincare. Avene are keen to spread the message that you are #NeverTooOld for acne, and really try to give as much information as possible to adults suffering from Acne, as it’s such a misconception that acne is just for teenagers. From when Hayley and I walked in, we were greeted by the Avene team who really took the time to get to know us more and find out what we were all about. It was a refreshing change as normally there are too many bloggers at events for the brand to care what we’re personally all about, but I had some lovely conversations and the team have really made a lasting impression. I had never heard of the brand before, I know, I’m a terrible blogger sometimes! But now, I cannot imagine life without them. It’s not the easiest range to get your head around, as the reasons to why the products work can be quite complex, but with the help of their very easily navigated website, I am going to break down the products I’ve been using.
The Avène Thermal Spring Water at £7 for 150ml, had the entire time of Avene super excited just to tell us all about it, so I was obviously interested to learn more. It’s a water that is meant to be use in-between of products to help sooth the skin, whilst making it softer and calmer. It can be used after surgeries, on redness, irritations of the skin, rashes, after shaving, on sunburn, or simply to cool yourself. It’s mostly aimed at the more sensitive of skins, but anyone can use it. I personally love it, it’s so refreshing and my skin is looking a lot clearer after a huge breakout thanks to sticking to Avene and using this water in-between of products.

Okay, I DO have a favourite. The Cleanance Expert at £15 for 40ml is honestly so amazing to use. It attacks the main cause of spots by regulating the production of oily by mattifying the skin. This limits the spreading of bacteria which would cause the spots and helps sooth redness.
A lot of the Avene range is fantastic for people who suffer with acne, especially adults as not only does some of the skincare target spots, but it also doesn’t try the skin out and instead aids anti-ageing. I’m so made up to have Avene in my life, I will definitely be picking up more!
