20 women seeking long-term solutions for soothing redness, allergies and irritable skin.
Star rating during this trial*:
The Avène Tolerance Control Soothing Extremely Gentle Cleanser Lotion and Avene Tolerance Control Soothing Skin Recovery Cream have both been formulated specifically for the soothing of hypersensitive and intolerant skin that is prone to allergies and redness.
The Avène Tolerance Control Soothing Extremely Gentle Cleanser Lotion is a no-rinse cleansing lotion formulated for irritable and hypersensitive skin. By restoring the hydrolipidic barrier – which offers protection against external environmental factors – it also reduces the reactivity of the skin.
Members of the Trial Team described the Avene Tolerance Control Soothing Extremely Gentle Cleanser Lotion as one of the smoothest, hydrating, and most refreshing cleansers they have ever tried.
From mild sensitivities to long-standing rosacea sufferers, this creamy, smooth lotion provided soothing relief. There have been reports that in as little as two weeks, the preservative-free and thermal spring water formula visibly reduced members’ rosacea.
People who hadn’t previously used a no-rinse cleanser were skeptical they’d have sticky residue left on the skin after using it. After only a few seconds, though, Trial Team members noticed their skin was soft, clean, and plump, while free of any tightness or residue.
Those with stubborn dry patches hailed the formula as a “godsend”, and many members expressed their desire to incorporate the cleanser into their routine after completion of the trial.
The Avène Tolerance Control Soothing Skin Recovery Cream offers a gentle formula, made to rapidly soothe irritations and intensely nourish and hydrate reactive skin.
Whether you’re trying to repair a damaged barrier from overly harsh products or procedures, or you have dry, sensitive skin, this nourishing cream helps to heal irritation and reduce skin reactivity over time.
While the benefits mimic that of a heavier, rich moisturiser, the consistency of the product remains light and absorbs quickly without an oily residue or congestion. Trial Team members with red, sore, and rosacea affected skin found that the product left their skin hydrated, smooth, and visibly calmer.
Trial Team members commended the recyclable and patented D.E.F.L packaging for its airtight dispenser that prevented bacterial contamination, plus the controlled dispenser meant that the product was not dispensed in excess and in turn, didn’t go to waste.
Some members acknowledged that they thought sensitive-specific formulas were simply intended not to irritate, rather than actually improve their skin. However, they were pleasantly surprised to see the visibly brightening, soothing and skin-clearing benefits this cream had on their complexion. After seeing the improvement in their skin, members were eager to continue using the Avene Tolerance duo in their routine.

“I found the cleanser to be very easy to apply with my finger and it was very gentle on my skin (it actually felt lovely on my skin). My skin definitely felt very clean and I have noticed a marked improvement in my skin texture and the redness has virtually disappeared.” – lynnellew, read more reviews here…
“It can be used around the eye area without causing any irritation which is a big plus for my sensitive eyes. Once my makeup is removed, I found that my sensitive skin felt soft and fresh and not irritated at all. I definitely recommend the Avène Extremely Gentle Cleanser Lotion and will be repurchasing once my supply has run out.” – Jodes71, read more reviews here…

I found that my skin was not as red after trying this product for only a few days and I noticed a great difference with my skin.” – Smk007, read more reviews here….
“I love all Avene packaging, they are clean and simple. The skin recovery cream has no scent (as I believe is the case with most if not all Avene products) and feels very, very soothing on the skin. It is deeply hydrating but not greasy at all and my skin loves it.” – Neel8888, read more reviews here….
