      Hi, Laarni! 🙂 I remember buying once from Mercury Drug along Katipunan. Nowadays, I always buy it in Watsons because I have the BDO Rewards card. 🙂

    Hi! Just went to Mercury drug, Robinsons Magnolia yesterday and the sales lady told me na pinull out na raw yung Avene products sa kanila since hindi raw mabili. 🙁 I wanna try this one kasi to check out if makakatulong sa pag-minimize ng pimples ko, cause I really get pimples before/during my monthly period and it’s sooo frustrating. 🙁

    Are you still using it now? 🙂

    And by the way, may I ask where you bought it? Anong branch ng Watsons? 🙂 Boundary kasi ako ng QC and Manila so choice ko lang is SM North, Trinoma, Rob Magnolia. Thanks and God bless! 🙂 More power to your blog!

      Hi, Erin! Oh no! Really?! 🙁 Shucks, I didn’t know that! I buy my Avene products from Watsons though, so most likely meron pa in Watsons! And I understand you! I used to have the same problem, but Avene really helped lessen the oiliness and acne. I still use it until now. 🙂

      The last time I bought was in Watsons near Burgos Circle, Bonifacio Global City. But try checking in Trinoma or SM North! 🙂 Thank you also!

      Really?! OMG, I didn’t know mahirap na pala siya hanapin! I actually use Epiduo with Avene. They work great together. 🙂 Epidup helps remove the pimples, blackheads, etc.

      I use it as my toner in the morning. In the evening, I use the Burt’s Bees Garden Tomato Toner ‘coz it also really works wonders on my skin! 🙂 Talaga? Wow, nagmahal na nga! Last time I bought it, hindi pa. Hehe.

    Hi, Ms. Gretchen! Finally I was able to I buy Avene cleanance gel in Trinoma last November 26 lang. I still have the receipt with me. UNfortunately, on my 2nd day of using it (yung sampler na free), nagkaroon ako ng zits. I really don’t know if it’s the culprit or my compact powder pero eto lang naman kasi dinagdag ko sa routine ko and nothing more. yung powder ko years ko na siyang ginagamit.

    Anyway, lesson learned. ayoko na talagang magpalit-palit ng products. 🙁 I’m selling my Avene cleanance gel (plus 2 sampler bottles of cleanance gel + sampler size of recovery cream + sampler size of sensitive white whitening fluid) all for 780 nalang (orig price is 1160). Kesa kasi masayang lang dito sa dresser ko. 🙁 Never used the 200ml bottle even once. Yung sampler size lang na isa yung nagamit ko since 3 bottles yung binigay sakin. Hope you can help me sell this stuff. Super sayang din kasi. Thank you!

      Hi, Erin! Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that happened to you. How bad was the zit? Do you normally never get zits, or maybe it was just a coincidence? Because sometimes, when I’m about to get my period, I tend to get one or two despite having a strict skincare routine. Avene has worked wonders on me for years now, but like I said, maybe it doesn’t always work for everyone.

      Anyway, do you have a photo of the items? It might help advertise it. Also, I’m running out of Cleanance Gel so maybe I can buy it from you instead. Thanks so much for the feedback! I’m sure that’ll help a lot of my readers. 🙂

        It was really really bad. Kasi breakout talaga yung isang side ng cheek ko. Pero yung isa hindi naman. Weird nga eh. Ang hirap kasing i-determine talaga kung ano yung nag-cause ng breakout. I can’t defend Avene either since sabi ng derma ko na Cetaphil nga raw kahit hypoallergenic minsan nagccause rin ng breakout. It’s matter of trial and error talaga when it comes to skincare products eh. But honestly, the post-effect of Avene is really great! But I don’t wanna experiment again. Haha. Anyway, my confidence is back na ulit since I went to my derma na last Sat. 🙂

        Yes yes. Here’s the link: http://imgur.com/a/VR9Ga#3 🙂
        Nvm the receipt nalang ’cause I added another item na P35 kaya naging 1,195. Thanks, Ms. Gretchen!

          Ohhh, I see. Yeah, that’s true. That’s what my derma always tells me also. I’m just lucky Avene really worked great on my skin. I hope you find the perfect product for yours as well! 🙂

          Anyway, you’re selling this for Php 780 right? You mind if I buy it from you? 🙂

          Hi Ms. Erin! I just knew now (Apr. 24, 2015) that you’re selling your Avene products. I want to try it because of lots of good reviews. Are you still selling those? 🙂 Thank you!
