Avène has developed a reputation over the years for not only the French location with natural spring water used as part of the skincare range but also, for the range of products developed to cover the needs of the skin, especially dry, very dry and sensitive.

Avène Gentle Milk Cleanser has been developed for dry to very dry sensitive skin, I am the first to witter on about my combination/oily skin, but I am also a believer in never pigeonholing skin, so, this for me is a 'fall back on' cleanser when I need something straightforward and simple, the mineral oil content helps the texture of the product to feel comforting and enriching on the skin. So, it's a double-edged sword, it smells of the milk cleansers of my youth, and, I love that, smelling a memory. It feels silky, creamy and blends over the face removing makeup as a second cleanse option or I use it as part of my morning. My skin feels clean and certainly not dry, but, it contains a very inexpensive ingredient mineral oil, which although purified by the time it is added to skincare it is a contentious ingredient. 
I personally like this particular cleanser, light-weight and gentle, creamy without being too much of the product and quick to remove, I prefer to use a cloth or muslin cloth, it adds to the cleansing experience and really leaves the skin feeling clean, also, if mineral oil isn't your thing, you are removing the majority with a good wipe or two with a fluffy cloth. 

Avène has a reliable and easily accessible range, from mineral water mists, cleansers, exfoliants, moisturisers for all skin types. The peach, white and black font packaging is so recognisable, a nice option if you want to try reasonably priced skincare.
