A nice gentle milk cleanser. I have combination skin which is prone to an oily T-zone and dryness on my cheeks and jawline in winter, so I wanted a moisturising cleanser that would mend my dry patches without being so rich that it would make my T-zone more oily.
This seems to strike a nice balance which is often very difficult with combination skin. My dry patches are less flaky since using this product for a couple of weeks, and my skin looks softer.
I would use this in winter and probably avoid it in summer.
The scent is not great but I can live with it.
The only major downside for me is that it doesn't remove makeup very well, so I can only really use this as a "morning" cleanser when I'm not trying to remove makeup or when I'm cleansing for the second time after I've removed all of my makeup with a different cleanser.
Overall not a bad product.
Absolutely love this cleansing milk, can really feel the difference betweent this and other cleansers which are more chemically and often leave a sting. I have dry sensitive skin and this works beautifully, almost cushions and does leave skin feeling soft does exactly what it says it will! I al glad to find a gentle cleanser that doesnt make me have to slather on a heap of moisturiser afterwards, smooths beautifully.
I love this cleanser, it's perfect with the Clarins Toning Lotion w/ Camomile. Leaves your skin soft and supple. I use this in the morning as it's a very gentle cleanser and then use the foaming cleanser at night to remove all my makeup. Highly recommend this product!
This cleanser I can rely on, one of the only cleansers I've found that does not break me out
This is my favorite cleanser of all time. I have dry, acne-prone, sensitive skin (very problematic skin!). I wear a pretty thick layer of makeup everyday, so getting it all off is a difficult task. I first use the water comfort peach cleanser, then follow up by massaging this alpine milk cleanser into my skin. I have tried the clarins method before where you use your fingers sort of like suction cups on your face, but I really don't think it's as effective as just gently rubbing the milk cleanser into your skin. Sometimes I remove with a damp towel, or if there are no clean towels around I just rinse off with warm water. I find both methods to be equally effective. The reason I love this product is because afterwards my skin feels so refreshed like I just got out of a facial. I love the smell, and I love how it makes my skin feel rejuvenated. Honestly, sometimes I use this when I just want to feel relaxed. That to me is the sign of a great product.
I love Clarins in general. I have sensitive/dry skin. I got they Foaming Clenser and it dried my skin out big time (even though it was recommended for dry skin. No foaming stuff for me anymore!) Anyhow, I switched to this one, and oh gosh, it is sooo much nicer, soft, gentle, smells wonderful! I do something odd though, I massage it in, and rinse it off with warm water, because I don`t like the tissue off idea, to make sure it doesn`t leave a residue on my skin. And it doesn`t, so I am very happy! Not drying at all! And it is really not that expensive, $30 and this bottle last a long time. :-))))))))))
This cleanser is very cushioning, smooth, creamy and comforting. Its a bit on the oily side but I don't mind as I have dry skin. It has a pleasant fragrance and is not too expensive.
I just received a HUGE sample of this as a gift with purchase. I suppose this is a preliminary review as I've only used it twice. In my opinion, "The Clarin's Method" could not possibly remove all of one's makeup AND cleanse the skin. Maybe their method would work better for the morning. My nighttime cleansing routine is to first break down makeup by allowing cold cream to sink in and carefully tissue off. I then rinse my face and massage this cleansing milk into my skin for a bit before rinsing clean. It seems to work well for my dry, acne prone skin this way.
I normally use the Clarins Foaming Cleanser but found it to be a little too drying for winter. I switched to this and my skin loves it! It is nice and creamy but doesn't leave my skin feeling slimy after rinsing. Thumbs up!!!
I have very sensitive skin and though I really wanted this cleanser to work on me, unfortunately it broke me out big time.
It does do a great job at cleaning your skin, it really removes all your make up and feels soft and gentle on your skin. This would be a perfect cleanser if you have dry skin.
