Just started to use this. I know it's not right to write a review right away you should test It to make sure it's good or bad but this cleanser is amazing!!!!! Great for dry skin type. It's gentle for you cleanser to get ride of build up impurities and make up and debris. I only need pump and a half and it's just enough. I massage in my skin and the feeling is great leaving my skin refreshed and smooth. I'm so far very happy with this and you Dec. Want something gentle for your cleanser for your skin type :).

I used this cleanser while dealing with cystic and chronic acne in high school. It was, and continues to be, one of the best cleansers I have ever tried. I believe that the packaging and formulation might be slightly different now, but the product continues to work very well for sensitive skin. It is definitely milky, moisturizing, non-drying, and effective. I highly recommend this cleanser and Avene as a brand, particularly for those who have oily or acne-prone skin.

This product has grown on me while I have used it.  I received a large sample size of this.  I have heard from facials that my dry skin will be best treated with a milk based cleanser.  This milk cleanser is just very thick and doesn't make me feel as "clean" as others I have now tried.  I worry "residue" is left behind.  Though, I do feel conditioned after using this product.  It is gentle for skin and though I do not love the scent it is fairly neutral and mild.

Gorgeously made cleanser, Avene continues to amaze me with their products. I bought have is from a dermatologist, it is VERY pricey but you're getting an excellent product that works. I would buy again after using sparingly!

This is one of my favorite products! It is my splurge item in my budget. It costs a little more than drug store cleansers but it is so much better.  After I use this product my skin feels so great afterwards.  I wish I found this product earlier than I did.

I bought this on a whim from Walgreens one day - I've been using it for a few weeks and I do like it ! I would say in terms of a "cleansing" factor, I might get something else to supplement. It could also be that it's the summer in NYC, but I feel like this could be too moisturizing for a summer cleanser.. It doesn't seem to rinse fully off my skin. Winter I think it's great for extra moisture with dry skin. I will investigate other products from them though!

Absolutely love this brand, I always have the thermal water in a few different sizes because I'm obsessed with it so I wanted to try some more from this brand. This is the second product I tried and I wasn't disappointed! I love the consistency of it and it leaves your face very clean but soft and hydrated. Definitely recommend it.

This is by far the best cleanser I have used! It leaves your skin silky smooth and never dry. No break outs. Easy to use pump. Price is reasonable for the amount that you get. I purchased it on amazon and definitely will buy again. I am interested in using the other products as well. It helps with the redness on my face

After years of trying to get rid of my acne using various products, including Clinique, this was the brand that my friend introduced to me and I absolutely loved it. The cleanser is foamy and gentle to my skin. It paired it with Avene's toner and moisturizer, both of which I love!

While I felt like the Avene Gentle Milk Cleanser worked well, I thought it was just working well enough.  I found it to be average, if not a bit pricy.  I love the Avene facial must and some of the masks, but this was just a miss for me.  I think it is just average.
