This is my favorite product for my problem skin.
It comes in a tube with 40 ml for about $23-26.
The emulsion itself is packed in a normal plastic tube without any pump dispenser.
What they say:
Avene Cleanance EXPERT is a light emulsion specifically designed for oily and acne prone skin. It targets spots and blackheads thanks to 3 complementary innovative ingredients: Monolaurin which reduces excess sebum, X-Pressin which smoothes skin texture and Diolényl which reduces redness.
An intelligent formula significantly reduces blemishes, while adding hydration, comfort while mattifying the skin.
Cleanance EXPERT can be used alone or in combination with a topical medical treatment.
Oil and paraben free. Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.
Texture: It’s gentle and neither greasy nor sticky with a slight cosmetic smell typical for the entire Cleanance range.
It absorbs in tracks and leaves no greasy film on my skin.
For whom: For oily to combination skin with redness and acne spots. It’s also good for uneven and dull skin with large pores and closed comedones.

Effect: I fell in love with this emulsion right after the first use. This is the very case when you realize it is exactly what you’ve been looking for.
It feels really comfortable on my skin and I hardly feel it on me.
How does it interact with other products? It doesn’t crease when combined with any foundation or powder that I have. More than that, it applies literally perfect.
How to remove? Easy-breezy. Any makeup remover will do.
What time of the year is it best suitable for?
Any time of the year, but I guess it’s best suitable for the summertime, because the emulsion mattifies the skin really well.
The only thing that it doesn’t have is any SPF, so I prefer applying a sunscreen on top of it in summer.
What time of the day is it best suitable for? I usually use it in the morning before applying makeup. But sometimes I use it in the evening also. The moisturizing effect is alright till morning.
How often to use? Every day.
