I've went through a few bottles of both the gel cleanser and mattifying toner by now. I initially bought them when I lived in Cambodia a few year back but only got to utsing them last year. This skin care
line is for oilier skin and hence the 'mattifying' and 'soapless' formulas.

The clarifying cleansing gel is a favorite of mine, I've gone through two bottles of each of these products but have yet to repruchase for the sake of their price. Not wallet killing pricey but more pricier than I think such products should be. It's not as if there's anti-wrinkle properties, these simply mattify oily skin and my skins been much better the last few months too!
Theres nothing bad to say about this product, it does what it says, leaves the skin feeling soft and clean and not tight and dry. It has a strong 'scent free' smell which I quite like and you don't need much product to wash your face with. Unlike other soapfree products, this gel does get foamy.
I'd use this on the days where my skin was just slightly oily, I don't think this would be the best for super oily skin, it may help but your skin would definitely need other products to control oiliness/acne.
This would be fine for those with normal to combination skin, it maybe mild enough for those with slightly dry skin too even as there's no astringent.

There's a strong sweet smell and the toner is a cloudy color that needs to be shaken before use. This really gets off all traces of oil and dirt, I even bring using it down to my neck area and it removes dirt from there too.
If you need an oil controlling toner, this may not be strong enough, there is alcohol but it isn't very strong in this product. Although this is targeted at oily sensitive skin, I can see this being good with very irritated skin.
Paid: (approx, will amend) $30.50 SDG for the gel cleanser ($25 USD)
$40.70 for the toner ($33 USD)
I've also bought them in the past from the french pharmacy in cambodia for about half the price!
Recommend: Anyone suffering from oily and slightly oily or normal skin these two products would be a great new addition. They are very mild but work well unlike skin care from Vichy for oily skin which is loaded with so much alcohol.
Repurchase: The toner for sure, it's a great perk for the skin and is so refreshing. I want to try other cleanser that improve the texture of my skin and not just control oil.
Bottom line: In terms of quality product that does what it's suppose to, this product is head on with maintaining oil control in the skin. I find the toner definitely a keeper because it does a lot to pamper the skin whereas I think I can find cleansers that can do more. Do check this brand out as their products are gentle and effective.
Have you ever tried products from Avene?
Is a toner/ softener part of your skincare regime?
