The reason this is such a great cleanser is because of the ingredients, natural and suited for every skin type, particularly dry or sensitive skin. I had a bad spell of dry skin and didn't know what to use. I went to Sephora and was given about 7 different samples, this being one of them. Unbelievable stuff and will continue to use this! In addition to this, I got the milk proteins 3 in 1 cleansing, toning, and eye makeup removing emulsion. This also aided in bringing my skin back to normal because it doesn't strip your skin, you can tissue it off.
I love this cleanser! I have combination skin that tends to feel tight after cleansing. I have large pores as well and use an SPF 30 sunblock moisturizer every day. I've tried A LOT of different cleansers, from cleansing creams to cleansing oils to various foaming cleansers that claim to remove makeup and sunblock. Most of these cleanser cleansed well, but would either leave my skin too taut and dull or when it didn't left my skin taut, it would enlarge my pores due to the added moisture. Finally I found Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser and this is the PERFECT cleanser! It is foaming, yet does not leave my skin tight nor sticky. It removes makeup and my sunblock well. And best of all, my skin has never looked better! My skin looks brighter and smoother and my pores look better. I hope Korres will always make this cleanser...I wouldn't know what to do without it.
It's a great cleanser. I have dry dehydrated skin and this is the first cleanser that I've used that removed all my dirt, makeup, oils and residue WITHOUT stripping my skin and leaving behind residues as it hydrates my skin. I've always hated using milk cleansers because they don't foam and I feel like i washed my face with cream. This is the best of both worlds. A milk that foams. Most importantly, it won't leave your skin tight. I follow with the Clarins toner for dry skin (yellow) and Bioderma hydrabio serum with Lancome Multi Vital Fluid SPF 30. Love it, will buy again!
This stuff is amazing! Gets off all your make up, keeps your face soft, smells nice, a little goes a long way, lasts forever, great value for what you get...Nothing bad to say about it :)
UPDATE: As much as I do love this, it gave me little red bumps on my forehead. I think my skin has changed because I used this a year ago and I was fine. As I've started to use this again recently, I've been reacting (only on my forehead). Regardless, I don't want bumps and I've switched to Weleda Almond cleansing lotion.
I love this! It removes all of my make up wirhout leaving My face all dry.
I got this product as a sample from Kit in Sydney. I was a little worried if this would break me out or strip my skin or wouldnt clean at all. Well to my surprise it was actually pretty good. It cleaned nicely without feeling dry or tight, it did not irritate my skin nor cause any further breakouts.It did not cure or reduce breakouts but thats not its purpose. I use this cleanser morning and night, followed by moisturizer then my topical drying pimple cream (only night) I like this cleanser as its light and not too harsh on the skin and ideal for someone that just wants a clean feel. I would definitely buy this again. Try the sample size first.
I never thought I'd be so happy with a cleanser. I picked this up at Ulta in an attempt to calm my skin down after a difficult experience with two Mario Badescu cleansers (for reference - Enzyme Cleansing Gel, which resulted in a bright red face -- for hours and supersensitive skin for days; and another that I threw out with this one thereafter. I think the parabens and sulfates were irritating). I love the Boscia Soothing Cream Cleanser and return to it often; I had good luck, too, with Jeffrey Dover's Skin Effects Glycolic Cream Cleanser. I go back often to Cetaphil, too. My challenge with Boscia is availability - though some Ulta and Sephora stores are stocking it; with Cetaphil, I feel it's left makeup residue behind. I'm too lazy and tired at night to use a removal oil then an cleanser.
But, I digress. This cleanser dispenses from a tube and is a lotion consistency. I put a small pea-sized drop in my palm (so, this will last FOREVER), emulsify it with a little water by rubbing my palms together (like one might do with a hair gel) - and beautiful foam lathers. It does a great, gentle job of cleaning my face. Some mascaras (just trying the Clinique tubing Bottom Lash) require a different method of removal (hot water and slight pressure), so it doesn't work as well there. I do have to follow immediately with moisturizer or I feel a tad dry, but my skin is dry/very dry year round. This cleanser helped to calm my angry skin from the enzyme cleanser -- and to remedy the fall out from that -- dry patchiness. If you're a Greenie, the packaging is recyclable and comes in a recyclable box. I'm so impressed with this line, I'm exploring their other products.. .I do need another moisturizer soon!

I was really impressed with how well this cleanser removes makeup, including eye makeup. And it doesn't irritate my eyes at all. It has a really nice texture, foams up just enough and doesn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry.
All up, it's a really good quality cleanser at a decent price, but after using it for about 2 months now I haven't noticed any huge improvements in my skin. My cheeks aren't quite as dry and flaky, but I'm still getting blemishes on my chin. I'm going to try something else once this runs out, but I wouldn't rule out purchasing it again.
I have dry combination skin that is very sensitive and gets irritated easily from the hard water we have. I needed a cleanser that could really clean my skin without stripping and drying it out. This is it!! I LOVE Korres products and had tried the white tea cleanser (too drying) and the 3-in-1 cleanser (not cleansing enough) and finally tried the foaming cleanser. Wow!!! It foams just enough and does not dry out my skin at all, however I can see how clean my face is when I'm finished. I've had less breakouts since using this product which is huge for me! I follow up with the Korres Wild Rose line and my skin glows. Highly recommend!!
I have very dry skin. Even cream cleansers are a bit dry after using. So although this product let my skin dry, I still find it to be a great product. A little goes a long way, love the smell, love that it's natural, and love that it foams up nicely without harsh chemicals. It would make a great summer cleanser.
