Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub

Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub

Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub uses a combination of proven ingredients to exfoliate away dull, dead skin cells and other impurities, leaving your pores purified and clear.

Editor’s Rating

Salicylic acid chemically exfoliates the skin and cleans the pores for an overall even, clarified look while zinc gluconate prevents potential inflammation and irritation. With continued use, you’ll notice your skin is softer and smoother while your complexion appears to be more even and toned. This product does exfoliate, but it’s not too abrasive that it can’t be used on sensitive skin.

For best results, apply Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub to your wet face. Gently massage the product into your skin in small, circular motions, avoiding the delicate eye area. Rinse the product thoroughly and follow up with your preferred moisturizer.

Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub retails for $18.00 per 1.6 oz. of product on Avene’s own website.

Recommending To Purchase?

A: Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub is a gentle, exfoliating treatment that uses a blend of salicylic acid and thermal spring water to sweep away imperfections and infuse the skin with hydrating, skin-healthy ingredients. Although this may sound like a unique exfoliating experience, there are several issues we’d like to address before you consider purchasing. Marketing the inclusion of thermal spring water as soothing and softening is a bit gimmicky. Water is water, no matter where it comes from.

Additionally, this product contains fragrance, which may offset any hydrating or soothing ingredients included in this formula anyway. Exfoliating products leave the skin vulnerable to potential irritation, adding unnecessary fragrant ingredients to the mix is puzzling. We’d recommend continuing your search for an exfoliating treatment that does not include any potential irritants and is suitable for all skin types.
