CANCER completely understands that strength and sensitivity need not be mutually exclusive. She's absolutely in her element with Avenue Gentle Purifying Scrub and Avene Thermal Spring Water Soothing Serum, both for Sensitive Skin. The scrub uses gentle microspheres and a Beta Hydroxy Acid to exfoliate, while the serum uses a patented liposome hydration system to help soothe and moisturize the skin. Both products contain high levels of Avene Thermal Spring Water, which has a history in treating atopic dermatitis (a type of eczema). (Did I mention that both products share a divinely comforting, soft and gentle scent that is well-tolerated by even the most sensitive of skins?)
