Be you again #CleananceConfidence

If you have problem skin, or know someone who has, you will know the negative impact it can have on your confidence and self-image. Known to be painful and uncomfortable, blemishes can leave both physical and emotional scars.
In June 2017, leading dermo-cosmetic brand - Eau Thermale Avène, gave 9 South Africans with blemish-prone skin the opportunity to regain their confidence and be comfortable in their own skin again. How? Upon the advice of a dermatological expert, each participant was given a custom skincare routine to follow for 45 days using products from the Eau Thermale Avène CLEANANCE range. 

Hannah  Hlongwane

“I love the products! They are so easy to use and not harsh on my skin.  My confidence has improved and I’m not afraid to be around people anymore.”


Ellen Maloka
Age 29| From Cape Town
“The products are amazing! I have been getting so many compliments. I am a happy woman!”

“In just a few short weeks of using the Eau Thermale Avène CLEANANCE Range, the feedback has been positive and all participants have reported an improvement in their skin condition when compared to the start of the campaign. This improvement is noticeable both physically as well as socially, with all participants reporting an increase in self-esteem and confidence and an increased social life.” - Dr Kim Ansley, a 3rd year Dermatology Registrar based at Steve Biko Academic Hospital in Pretoria.
