I’m so glad I didn’t pass this cream on to my daughter as it was in the pass on to daughter bag along with some other creams and serums and make up.well it’s a good job i went through it again before I did .let me tell you I started to get spots on the cheeks of my face,dunno why,perhaps it’s hormones.at 51 years of age possibly menopausal.anyway I applied this and by morning they had gone down applied 2nd night even clearer.so now I use it every time spots strike me.even ordered a new bottle ready for when I run out.i think it’s great even better when I get it at 20% off price from ESCENTUAL.
Intro: as a teenager I didn't suffer from acne, so having it at 20+ years was a very unpleasant surprise. I'm 31 now, and I've tried loads of products, but only regular visits to aesthetician really helped to keep my skin under control (extraction+peels). I was looking for a skincare routine that would reduce pores clogging (and salon visits frequency). Acids worked well for me but my skin was always too dehydrated and damaged, which caused new inflammation and clogged pores, an endless circle!
I've been using TriAcneal for ~3 months and my skin has really improved (you can judge by the time you spend on concealing, right?:)). I still have occasional blemishes but they are not as deep and inflamed as I used to have, they heal better, don't leave marks (and some old marks has reduced), and aside from those spots my skin looks healthier in general (tone and firmness). I use it as a serum (routine step-wise, the texture is a thick cream, but you only need a pump or two), pressing it into skin so as not to stretch and traumatize the skin, and apply light moisturizer on top of it because I need more hydration (I like LRP Hydraphase Light). This combination gives me enough hydration and doesn't clog my pores.
I'd really recommend to give it a go if you are tired balancing between harsh anti-acne products, dehydrated skin and pores clogging.
My 38-year old sensitive, combination, blemish prone skin LOVES this product! I react to other retinol products and gentle exfoliator acids - but this works wonders. I wake in the morning, my skin is smoother, far less red and the most calm it's looked in years. It's reduced the appearance of my pores and acne scarring too. Plus it's anti aging. Avene TriAcneal Expert is my only HG product.
I have suffered with acne on and off for years since my late teens, but to break out again now in my mid forties was very unfair. I have always looked after my skin and I felt very distressed and embarrassed at having acne yet again. I started using the Cleanance range from Avene using Triacneal at night. I wanted not only the acne fighting ingredients but the anti ageing benefits too. Spots and wrinkles, how nice! It took about two weeks to see a marked difference, the dullness had gone, red existing blemishes were less noticeable, any spots that occurred were going in a few days and not becoming full blown cysts. The cream is also soothing and moisturising without feeling heavy or greasy. Thank you Avene!
