What You Should Know
Avene is a skin care company that traces its roots all the way back to the 1700s. Basically, Avene is a small town in the south of France. It has a unique spring that offers healing abilities. Ever since the 1700s, when a horse with a skin disorder was healed by this spring, the water from it has been highly sought after. Therefore the Avene skin care line uses this unique water in their products. These products range from treatments for hypersensitive skin, to rosacea, to aging skin, to acne blemishes, to atopic skin. The one we will look at in this review is Avene TriAcneal. Although it is not sold directly through the official website, there is a dealer locator tool provided on the website.
Avene TriAcneal is primarily for oily or problematic skin types. While this formula endeavors to treat and prevent acne blemishes, it also assists with some signs of aging. More specifically, this formula sloughs off dead surface cells to reveal new skin, reduces redness, minimizes irritation, and helps eliminate scarring from pimples. Avene TriAcneal is both hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. This formula is also free of parabens, which some users will appreciate.
You simply apply Avene TriAcneal to a clean face once each night. A sunscreen is recommended during the daytime. Four major ingredients are mentioned for this formula. These are Glycolic Acid (6%), Avene Thermal Spring Water (5%), Retinaldehyde (0.1%), and EFECTIOSE (0.1%). While Avene Spring Water helps by soothing and softening the skin, EFECTIOSE minimizes acne breakouts, irritation, and redness. Retinaldehyde is added to diminish fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, and acne blemishes, and Glycolic Acid assists by exfoliating dead surface cells. The cost of Avene TriAcneal is $60.

The Bottom Line
In the end, Avene TriAcneal comes across more as a treatment for acne blemishes than anything else. It is nice to see that four key ingredients are used in this formula, and the actual percentages of each ingredient are revealed. Just to be clear, this product will likely increase your skin’s sensitivity to sunlight. Also, it is a little concerning that three types of alcohol are used in Avene TriAcneal, which may increase skin dryness. Some people may not appreciate that artificial fragrance has been added to this face treatment as well.
