What You Need To Know:
A true innovation, Cleanance Comedomed shows results in just seven days. It targets both visible blemishes and those lying invisible under the skin, while limiting their reappearance for clearer skin in the long term. Made for oily, blemish-prone complexions, the concentrate is powered by Comedoclastin™. Derived from milk thistle seeds, Avene’s powerhouse active is so good that it has patented properties, so you won’t see it cropping up in other skincare formulas anytime soon. This clever active targets blackheads, reduces existing blemishes and prevents new ones from appearing. In fact, Avene’s anti-blemish face cream has a clinically proven anti-reappearance action.
Recommended for those over 12 and over, Comedomed uses just 11 ingredients to soothe, mattify and treat your skin. But just because it’s tough on breakouts, that doesn't mean it’s tough on sensitive skin; it features a hefty dose of Avene’s world-famous Thermal Spring Water (67.5%) to soothe and calm your complexion with each use.
Why It’s Escentual:
Let’s just say, there’s a reason why the Comedomed cream is a best-seller and an award-winner. It might be held in a small pump bottle, but the formula itself is mighty. And honestly, the results speak for themselves.
We’ll admit that it does have a strong chemical smell when first dispensed, but the fragrance-free formula works so hard that you can put up with the scent (plus, the natural fragrance disappears once you’ve smoothed it into your skin anyway). Moreover, it has no artificial fragrance to offer a high-tolerance formula that’s less likely to irritate even the most sensitive skin. In fact, it’s so gentle that you can use it alongside other products, or after acne medication (except for oral isotretinoin).
The face cream has a light, non-greasy gel-cream texture that not only sinks in really quickly, but also leaves your skin feeling supple, moisturised and mattified. Although it’s best used as a twice-daily facial moisturiser for oily, blemish-prone skin, we’ve also discovered a few extra hidden benefits when putting it to the test. Not only can it be used on the back and chest to treat pesky spots, but we also think it makes a great targeted spot treatment for those who struggle with the odd breakout.
The Best Way To Use It:
Use morning and night. Dispense 1 pump of Cleanance Comedomed onto your fingertips. Then, dab it onto the T-zone and the cheeks, using circular motions to boost penetration as you smooth the cream outwards towards the cheeks and lower face.
Cleanance Comedomed can be used alongside acne medication; however, it should not be used with oral isotretinoin.
The Sustainable Side:
The outer cardboard box can be recycled.
