Triacneal Cream


Improves both breakouts and lines! An anti-ageing cream with a highly active vitamin A derivative that won’t upset oily skin.

SKU: 1565 Categories: ,

Avene Triacneal Cream (replaced Diacneal) is god’s gift to thirty-somethings who are still suffering from breakouts, but are also concerned about first lines and wrinkles. Until now, effective products for this skincare group have been hard to find, as the usual anti-ageing products are too rich and risk aggravating their blemishes. I love this product, as it improves both lines and breakouts in oily skin. This new version contains an added soothing ingredient, but otherwise is as good as the Diacneal cream.

Suitable for oily, breakout-prone skin.

Avoid in dry, sensitive skin.

Size: 30ml

Gradually taper in, as tolerated (might be very slightly irritating if started too quickly)
If stinging/flaking occurs, wait for a few days and then slowly re-start
Adjust usage to tolerance. If only tolerated every other evening, use a simple oil-free moisturiser inbetween.

This cream contains a highly effective 6% glycolic acid and 0.1% retinaldehyde. Retinaldehyde is the direct precursor of prescription- only tretinoin, which is used in clinic to improve both acne and sun damage. Retinaldehyde has also been shown in studies to be less irritating than tretinoin. Glycolic acid has the added benefit of exfoliating the skin to smooth complexion and prevent breakouts. As added ingredient this product contains Efectiose, an ingredient targeting mediators responsible for skin irritation.

The cream also matifies and protects the skin, while thermal spring water in the formula calms and helps prevent irritation.
