Uriage Crème Lavante Soap-Free Liquid Cleanser

Hi ladies! Containing 1/3 nourishing milk, Uriage Crème Lavante is a 2-in-1 skincare product: cleanses and nourishes all at once. It preserves the hydrolipidic film, perfectly respects cutaneous balance and compensates for the drying-out effects of hard water. I have been using this soap-free liquid cleanser - formulated with thermal water and suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive and reactive - daily for a few months now and it's about time I share with you my opinion on it!

I have always been struggling with dry and eczema-prone skin, but this condition seems to have worsen since this summer, when I went swimming in a radioactive lake - yes, I know! - so I have to be extra careful regarding what I put on my sensitive skin to prevent any flare-up. The opportunity to try this soap-free cleanser came just at the right time!

I really enjoy the pleasant light, fresh and "clean" fragrance of this cleanser even though it doesn't seem to stay on the skin after showering, but its texture is not really consistent, which makes it hard to dispense the proper amount of product, despite the convenient pump packaging. I have to use a fair amount of product to produce a fine, creamy, easy-to-rinse foam, but I guess that for a soap-free cleanser, it's fairly good.

Crème Lavante leaves my skin soft without feeling tight or dry, but despite its nourishing claims, it did not really improve my skin condition and I still have to apply moisturizer after use. This cleanser can also be used on face and hair, although I did not try it, and it is suitable for all the family.

Uriage Crème Lavante Soap-Free Liquid Cleanser is available for $19.95 for 500mL at Jean-Coutu.

  1. Swimming in a radioactive lake? Did you know before going in that it was radioactive?

  2. What! Un lac radioactif?! Comment ca?

  3. @eight : Ahahahah of course not I didn't know, although it was pretty stupid of us to go pass the "caution" and "no entry" signs... I guess I learned my lesson!

    @Stephanie B: On a escaladé les barrières alors que c'était clairement indiqué "dangereux", "interdit d'entrée" etc... On a su par après que c'était une mine abandonnée avec des matériaux radioactifs au fond...

  4. J'utilisais souvent cette marque quand j'étais a la fac car j'avais la peau tres tres seche du a l'eau calcaire.

  5. C'est p-e pour ca que tes lèvres ne sont plus sèches?! ;)
