Clarins has 2 types of cleansing milk, one for the normal to dry skin, containing Alpine Herb ( which is the one I received ) and another type for combination to oily skin containing Gentian.
For those who are familiar with the texture of cleansing milk, it tends to leave a layer of film on the skin, which is something I disliked in the past, because of my oily skin during puberty stage. As the age crepts up, with my combination skin and surface dehydration, I welcomed the move to using cleansing milk.
This cleansing milk is a thick white creamy cleanser which is meant to be used as a make-up remover. You can check out Clarins' recommended way of cleansing here. Its pretty odd so I used my traditional method of massaging on the skin as what I usually do for my gel cleansers. It works pretty well on my skin. However, you need alot of the cleansing milk and repeated steps in order to cleanse well, with heavier make-up.
While it did leave a layer of film on the skin, it was fine with me, as I usually followed up with my regular cleanser. The end result is clean, soft and moisturised skin. I like it very much, as a gentle make-up remover, especially on days when I am battling with dehydrated skin. I do not use it on the eyes though as I use a separate eye make-up remover for that.
It scored 4.0 from 79 reviewers on Makeupalley.
