Clarins Cleansing Milk (Normal or Dry skin)
Posted October 17, 2009on:
I had have used few bottles of L’Oreal cleansing milk before I learnt of cleansing oil. I love the gentleness and effectiveness of cleansing oil and never thought of going back to cleansing milk these few years. When I received this 50ml cleansing milk as my Clarins haul’s GWP, I was happy to recall my memory with cleansing milk. The Clarins cleansing milk enriched with Aphie herbs, strongly fragranced, smells refreshingly, formulated for normal or dry skin.
The content has very light grean color alike the color of its packaging and the consistency is feeling lightweight yet moisturizing enough to massage onto skin comfortably. The sales assistant advised me to massage this on dry face (with makeup/sunscreen on), massage gently for ~30 seconds to dissolve the makeup, rinse off with clean water later. The cleansing milk will slowly melting upon massage, wipe off properly with cotton pads if I used normal room temperature water. Warm water is just effective to remove the film adequately without dryness. It leaves a smooth moisturizing film on skin, but most of the time I didn’t proceed to second cleansing , especially skin is easily dehydrated in dry season.
The below attached pictures show its good cleansing power, but don’t expect it can remove mascara and heavy glitter-particles at one time, although there shouldn’t be any problem to remove all eventually. Due to some reasons, it is not practical when applied to face makeup, therefore I think it is only good for light makeup removal with non-waterproof mascara.
Overall I’m happy with this cleansing milk, cleanse well, quite gentle and no irritation occurs. This also has oily-combination version for oilier skin. At now, I included natural-based cleansing milk (this has too much perfume to me) into my makeup removal routine whenever I only have light makeup/sunscreen on.

After massage the skin about 30 seconds, all makeup have been easily removed EXCEPT longer time needed for mascara. Leftover glitter-particles need an extra clean cotton pad to wipe off thouroughly.
