avene comedomed review


Acne, maskne or breakouts? Blemish-prone skin affects approximately 80% of adolescents, with around 40% being women.

If you’re part of the stat (a lot of us are), then you’re reading the right skincare review. Cleanance Comedomed is the latest spot saviour to take on the adult acne problem.

Its sexy tag line of ‘visible results in just 7 days.’ is music to anyone’s ears that suffers from spots. With an impressive claim like this, we had to put it to the test. But first, let us explain a bit more about what Comedomed is all about…


What You Need To Know About Cleanance Comedomed

Avene Cleanance Comedomed Anti-Blemishes Concentrate, for short, Comedomed is a non-oily daily moisturiser for the face that helps to fight blemishes. With only 11 ingredients, it’s the first of its kind in the French Pharmacy skincare category. Comedomed targets the root of a spot; we like to call it both a preventative and a cure.


Who Is Comedomed For?

Comedomed isn’t for everyone, but it will work to clear:
✔️ Normal to combination skin with breakouts
✔️ Dry skin with breakouts
✔️ Sensitive skin with breakouts
❌ Normal skin
❌ Dry skin
❌ Sensitive skin

You can also use Cleanance Comedomed if you take acne medication, but not if you take oral isotretinoin.


Comedomed Ingredients

Comedomed is fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. You might recognise it’s star ingredients:

• 65% Avene Thermal Spring Water to soothe, calm and moisturise skin.

• 25% Comedoclastin to prevent blemishes forming.

Full listing of ingredients for Comedomed:

Avene Thermal Spring Water (Avene Aqua), Isopropyl Alcohol, Peg-6, Glycerin, Silybum Marianum Fruit Extract, Silica, Polyacrylate-13, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Sorbitan Isostearate, Water (aqua)


What is Comedoclastin?

Comedoclastin is a stabilised plant extract more commonly known as milk thistle (Silybum marianum). It helps to block the formation of blackheads, whiteheads and bumps (comedones) and also prevents the formation of them. This incredibly innovative ingredient doesn’t just work on the surface of the skin, it works deep down to prevent you from waking up in the morning with more spots. In scientific terms, it stops microcomedones (formation of spots) turning into comedones.

Fact: you won’t find Comedoclastin in any other skincare, as it’s patented by Piere Fabre, the creator of Avene skincare.

What does Cleanance Comedomed Feel Like?

It feels like a lightweight gel, rather than an emulsion or a cream. The formula is so fresh and weightless that if you layer SPF or makeup over the top of it, it doesn’t pill. It dries quickly too, so you don’t have to wait around before it absorbs – so, you’re free to continue with your beauty routine instantly after applying.


What does Comedomed Smell Like?

At first, Comedomed smells like hand sanitiser, but the alcoholic smell fades away quickly, and you’re honestly left with no scent at all.


How do I use Avene Cleanance Comedomed?

”Avene cleanance comedomed how to use” is one of the top googled question for this product. You apply Comedomed as you would apply your daily moisturiser, after serum, but before foundation (that’s if you wear it). Watch Ceryn’s video to feel how to use it properly.


How Our Team use Cleanance Comedomed:

I always keep comedomed close to hand for any hormonal breakouts that surprise me!

Instead of using this as a moisturiser, I use it as a spot treatment as and when they pop up.

My skin has become really problematic during lockdown, so this has become my daily moisturiser; I’ve noticed my skin is finally starting to clear!

I’ve used it on my chin, nose, shoulders, back and chest; during the day, and the night.

”I get hormonal break outs around my jawline and chin, this is a great lightweight moisturiser that helps reduce redness and further break outs coming. At first it does smell strong but it goes within a few seconds of rubbing into the skin.”

I ordered this on a whim as I saw it in the sale and read some really positive reviews online elsewhere. I have been having the worst breakouts in a long time due to stress. I have had acne since I was 13 and I am 41 now, not fun, but it was mostly under control with few chin spots, nasal-labial pores enlarged, forehead texture- until this pandemic took over. I have painful deep acne on my cheeks now and haven’t in years! Also near my chin, neck, hairline area. I was previously using a popular skin care brand’s treatment that included acids etc. for pore control and acne and that had stopped being effective. The fact that this product has only 11 ingredients appealed to me as I hoped it would not irritate my rosacea/acne that I tend to get on my nose and peri-oral area. I am happy that not only is my skin clearing up nicely after a week but it also does not make my skin red at all! Everything I put on my face makes it a bit red and I am not typical fair rosacea person, I have light olive skin and brown eyes but I still get red spots not a nice look. My skin is left even toned and matte using this. It DOES have a strong smell of alcohol? but it disappears after a few seconds, does not bother me. I am also using the Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% mask and that might be part of the clear up as well. I am using the Avene serum twice a day. It controls my face’s super oiliness too! I am back to order another because the only downside is, is the small size of the bottle and I am nervous of running out too quickly.
