i've previously used caudalie products before but find this to be quite a disappointment, especially when it comes to removing make-up. doesn't remove makeup well especially eye make-up, and i end up with smudgy eye every night. usually i will use this with the mac makeup remover wipes, and find this combination to be working okay, just okay. however it had not caused me any break outs or any sorts.

Like other reviewers I find this does a really poor job of removing make up, I apply, massage in to melt make up, rinse, repeat. I would then swipe over with cotton wool to ensure all is removed, as I would expect it would be. However with the caudalie gentle cleansing milk the cotton wool comes away thick with make up. I only wear a bit of makeup (lush colour supplement mixed with my face moisturiser, dusting if powder and bronzer), I guess at least it shows my makeup has good staying power! I have to use loads of cotton wool and milk to clean my face several times over before it is all removed which takes ages. I have still given the product 2 stars as it doesn't upset my sensitive skin and leaves it nice and soft. I would not buy again or recommend.

I'm a huge cream/milk cleanser fan and I've pretty much tried most of the brands variations, Clinique, Clarins, Chanel, Dior etc etc. I have been using shiffa cleanser and toner over the last year (not listed on here and I can't add them but they are amazing) but its so expensive I decided it was time for a less expensive change, I was ordering some caudalie beauty elixir on line and found the caudalie cleanser and toner on offer, so thought I would give these a go.
Packaging great, fragrance, hmm, odd, cant put my finger on it? not terrible but not pleasant either, it has a fairly fluid consistency. I use milk cleanser only in the eve, I do not wear heavy make up so there is not a lot of product to remove but even with many repeat applications, I wake up the next morning - swipe a bioderma sensbio soaked cotton pad over my face to find traces of make up? I've not experienced this problem with any other cleanser and toner so I'm not sure what it is exactly that prevents this product from cleaning the skin like it should?
I have found my skin getting super sensitive to the fact I have to cleanse repeatedly with this product so for me it's definitely not made the short list and I won't repurchase again.

this is a wonderful product. I'm using it at night, 2 times because I wear make-up. Since I´ve started this I had no more breakouts and my overal skin condition is improving. For me the only problem with this product is its price

4 years ago I bought a small bottle of this from a Paris drugstore liking the fact that it was all French, but quite cheap. To my amazement, this brand has really evolved since then.
It had a light pleasant fragrance but to be honest, it did nothing for my skin during its acne prone phase. It just felt like a lot of foam. Recently however my skin has become less acne prone but a lot more sensitive. Using this facewash along with my Clarisonic has worked out much better. It's kind to sensitive skin and the Clarisonic ensures that it also leaves my skin clean. On it's own, I may only use it in the mornings when my skin is not so dirty - but I am using Cetaphil for that and that's working out OK.

Over many years of trial and error I have found a small range of cleansers that will work on my sensitive skin, and this is one of them and the one I'm currently using. At first I was very nervous because it has quite a strong smell, but whatever they are using for the scent doesn't irritate my skin. It is less expensive than others I have used and I really like the convenience of the (normal) pump bottle (if you've used Ren, you know what I mean). What can I say? It works for me - leaves my skin clean, pores clean, and no tight feeling. I apply to dry skin, remove with a damp muslin and then give an extra rinse. It takes off my eye make-up except for sometimes if I've gone heavy on the waterproof mascara so then I use a bit of olive oil on a cotton pad. Other cleansers I have used and equally would recommend for sensitive skin:
- Weleda almond cleansing lotion (inexpensive and takes everything off, but not so moisturizing and I had to use a lot)
- Ren hydracalm cleansing milk (very nice, my next best favourite but more expensive)
- Organic Pharmacy carrot butter cleanser (love, but too expensive for me to use on a regular basis)
- Inlight and Speizia organic cleansers (very similar to the carrot butter - same company but marketed under different brands in different countries - not always easy to find)
- Nude cleansing oil (like this one a lot too but also more expensive)

I ve read some pretty weird reviews here on this product and im surprised... even my dog can tell the difference between a foaming cleanser and a milk cleanser.... anyway ... This is a milk cleanser meaning you use it on dry skin you massage it on your skin and then you rinse it off. This doesn't have any cleansing agents in it the way it works is because it has an emollient consistency it melts the dirt or make up away from your face. These kind of cleansers are good for dry skins because they dont really "wash" the skin they just emulsify the dirt and make up on the skin and then when you rinse them off the dirt goes away.I prefer using milk cleansers i find them to be more gentle they dont stimulate the skin a lot and plus they remove make up so much better from a foaming cleanser. On the actual product now. I dont really like it for 2 reasons. first of all i dont mind when products have a scent but i really cant tolerate skin care products that smell like perfumes and this one smells almost exactly like calvin klains CK1 perfume..... i haven't noticed any kind of damage on my skin by the perfume but i really feel very uncomfortable massaging something on my face with such a strong scent in it. The second thing that i dont like about this product is the fact that is not rich enough. Its has a thin milky texture not a rich and creamy one, as a result of that, after a few seconds disappears from your skin and theres nothing left on your skin to massage it with, so you end up adding and adding more and more product . Its cleansing power is just ok I guess I would never use it on a full make up face i would probably need half a bottle of this to deep clean my face. I use it as my morning cleanser and i must say that leaves my skin very soft and not irritated or red at all. I always use a cloth for complete removal otherwise it leaves a film on my skin

I tend to go for cream cleansers as they work well with muslin cloths, and picked this up on a sale when my old cleanser was running out. This cleanser is quite thin and runny in consistency, but still creamy enough to use with a cloth. It removes makeup well, and smells very nice. However, I couldn't use it with my cloth as I intended to. When I leave this on my skin: my face goes bright red and feels very hot! When I remove my makeup, it's fine again within five minutes, and I don't experience any breakouts or anything. But that burning feeling is uncomfortable!
I didn't have that problem when I rinsed my face, and didn't let the cleanser sit on the skin, so if your looking for a cleanser to rinse of, and don't have sensitive skin, this is a good one.

been using this cleanser with my clarisonic for over 3 months now. I love how gentle it is and the milky/creamy texture is amazing as well. there is no significant fragrance and it does not taste bitter and soapy in your mouth after you've rinsed it off like some cleansers ( aka the philosophy purity one). it was inexpensive as well, I paid $35CAD +tax for it and I'm sure it's even cheaper in the US. a little pump of this product is enough to cover half my face and it's been 3 months and I'm only 1/3 done the bottle. will buy again when I run out :)

One of the only cleansers that does not make my ultra sensitive skin react. Definitely recommended for sensitive skin. ETA-Docking two stars because I do not feel like this is getting my skin as clean as it should, even when I wipe off with a cotton pad before using a washcloth. I am noticing more breakouts than I used to. It is non-foaming, so I end up having to use more than should be necessary and going through it too quickly as a result. I am not thinking I will repurchase.
