Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub has been especially formulated to cleanse sensitive skin in depth by gently eliminating all impurities. It is very rich in Avene Thermal Spring Water which is known for its soothing and anti-irritant properties. Its exfoliating micro-beads are selected for their extreme tolerance on sensitive skin. It has a mild gel-like texture which prevents cutaneous dryness and leaves a pleasant feeling of comfort. This Gentle Purifying Scrub is Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.
DIRECTIONS: Apply the gentle purifying scrub to either clean wet or dry skin, avoiding the eye contour area. Gently massage using circular movements then rinse thoroughly off. Finish by spraying a fine mist of Avene thermal spring water. Can be used once or twice a week, according to the skin type.

Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub exfoliates, purifies and soothes the skin without causing damage or irritation, even on sensitive or blemish-prone skin. The gel removes dead skin cells and promotes the renewal of healthy new cells, which over time produces supple, radiant skin and visibly reduces the appearance of blemishes.

Clean Deeply without Damage
Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub is suitable for all skin types, but is particularly advantageous for those with sensitive skin. The gel is rich with non-abrasive Jojoba micro-spheres, which gently exfoliates skin and cleans pores without damaging or irritating healthy skin. It does not leave any oily or greasy residue on the skin; nor does it leave skin feeling tight or dry as many soaps do.
The scrub also purifies the skin and promotes healthy cell renewal, a process which eliminates blemishes as damaged skin is replaced with fresh, healthy skin. Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub complements most other blemish-reducing treatments, including medical treatments designed to reduce acne, rosacea or similar blemish-producing conditions --- not only by gently cleansing the skin, but also promoting greater absorption of skin-nourishing ingredients in other products.
Sodium Salicylate, also found in Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub, works as an anti-inflammatory agent which soothes skin and reduces the appearance of blemishes and redness caused by inflammation or irritation.
Avene Thermal Spring Water is found in abundance in Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub. This mineral-rich water, originating from the Cevennes Mountains of southern France, is clinically proven to promote skin health and rapid healing of damaged or infected skin. It leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and comfortable.
Directions for Use
For best results Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub should not be used every day. Individuals with oily skin may use it 2 or 3 times a week, with a couple days break in between uses. Those with normal or dry skin will benefit from using the product once every 2 weeks.
The gel may be applied to either dry or moistened skin. It should be gently massaged into the skin using fingertips, moving in small circular motions. Avoid rubbing the gel into the eye contour area.
When finished the gel should be completely rinsed off. If desired the skin may be gently patted dry with a soft washcloth or similar material after rinsing. Additional skin treatments may be applied shortly after using Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub.
