A Review: Avene TriAcneal


I have a review for you on this fine Sunday morning, so I hope you enjoy.

With product reviews I like to get technical and explain it the best way I know how to give you a full picture of what the product actually claims it does for the skin. So I apologise if the style isn't something you're used to here on my website. But I hope you find this helpful. As always, I would like to point out that this is my opinion, this is something that has worked for me and although I recommend it, be aware it may react slightly different to your skin. So please bare in mind if you purchase this. 

The nitty gritty:
The Avene Eau Thermale TriAcneal eliminates imperfections with it's non greasy, non-comedogenic formula. So whilst it gets to work it doesn't clog pores or cause any further problems or irritations, and keeps the skin moisturised to prevent any feeling of tight or dry skin whilst the other ingredients are working their magic. One of the active ingredients is Glycolic acid which is used as an exfoliant to smooth the skins surface and it tackles those surface spots and gets rid of any dead skin cells or pore clogging substances. Pretty awesome right? TriAcneal also has Efectiose and Retimaldehyde, which although they have pretty funky names, they have an important job. While one reduces inflammation the other eliminates imperfections. Together, they are the three skin imperfection eliminating musketeers. No seriously this is a pretty awesome spot fighting, scar preventing team and this product has changed my skin. It is quite pricey at £23 from Boots but it is definitely worth it and I may try out some of the other Cleanance range from Avene and see if they can help prevent any future breakouts or scarring even more - scarring is a big issue thanks to my little blemish party, it was too good none of them would go, until I started using this. With which those bad boys slowly but surely buggered off. 

Just as a side note. I'm aware my skin isn't perfect and there are still breakouts but none of the big, painful, under the skin spots, but these are all small surface bumps now and most of the marks I have now are either patches of redness or scars (especially on my chin). There is the odd blemish but nothing that can't be banished with this thing. 

All skin is different and although this has worked for me and my skin, it may not work on everyone's, although I definitely recommend giving a try if you have some of the same issues mentioned. For example, the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo worked great for my skin at the beginning and I got to the end of my first tube of the stuff, and noticed that my skin was acting up and my nose, cheeks and chin were covered in red bumps and they were so painful and I couldn't even touch them to cover them up using a brush or concealer. So I cut my skincare back to the bare minimum and when I started using this again, I got those bumps. I got a new serum to take it's place and that did the same. So I am so glad I have found this which hopefully will continue to help my skin and not turn on me at the end of the tube. Oops major detour there, my bad.

I hope you liked this post, and maybe you have some recommendations to battle any of the skin concerns mentioned so please let me and others know in the comments. Much appreciated.
