Recently rediscovered ... Boots ... Nostalgic product from the 80's does not disappoint!

I used to use this when I was a teenager (bought for me by my mother) but it seemed to disappear from the shelves for years. I was very happy to see it stocked in Boots recently and immediately bought a bottle. The lady on the till commented that she hadn't seen it for years so I assume they stopped selling it. I don't know why because it is a fantastic cleanser, it literally removes every last scrap of makeup/grime and leaves your skin soft and glowing. Unlike some other reviewers I absolutely LOVE the smell, it's clean and comforting, not old-ladyish at all. And the price isn't bad either.

Agree with other reviewers who said this stuff is too harsh. It felt like it was burning my skin, made me all red and irritated, overly fragranced, stung my eyes. It didn't even remove my surface makeup efficiently! Hated it.

Too harsh for my sensitive, dry skin. Made my skin red and my eyes sting. Very drying. The only thing this product does well is get grime off your face and neck.

I hate this stuff - it breaks my skin out and burns my eyes like crazy. It is overly fragranced and irritates me (I have sensitive skin). Doesn't remove eye makeup and is medicore at removing face makeup. It's pretty cheap but still not worth the price at all.

I tried this about a year ago. Usually I use cleansing oils as my pre-cleanser, but I wanted something more travel friendly and cheap. I got this for just under £4 in Superdrug, but you can get it cheaper in Boots or Savers I think. I have sensitive skin and this irritated it quite badly; it left my skin red and feeling itchy. It also stung my eyes and left them red and swollen. Very heavily fragranced. It didn't remove my makeup that well at all either.
The packaging was a pain - it lets the product come out very easily so you end up wasting more product than you need to. Overall I was very unhappy with this cleansing milk.

This is quite possibly the best thing I've ever purchased on behalf of my skin. It removes EVERY last bit of make up.
I decided to try this on the basis of the reviews on MUA. At £2.79 in my local boots I had nothing to lose. I used it to take off a days worth of make up including dark eye make up and all of it came off in one swipe of the cotton pad. I am ecstatic with this! The smell was a bit offputting at first kind of like something my grandmother would use but after that it's amazing.

I swear by Anne French! I have oily spot-prone skin, and this is amazing at preventing spots. I recently received an Elemis cleanser, and after using it for a couple of weeks, my spots have returned!! :( So I am getting another bottle of Anne French ASAP!! I would recommend it to anyone.

Classic Product. Has been around since the 70s and before, my mum and my great-aunt used this. So I bought it to give it a try. Its easily recognizable it comes in a white tear shaped bottle with a blue lid which pulls off does not screw off. One the way home i reached into to the bag and opened the bottle to test the consistency of the cleanser on my hand and spilt a good amount on the floor of the car. Take note it comes out very quickly so have your cotton ball at the ready. Great gentle cleanser i use it in the morning then use a different face wash at night and i love the smell, one like Nivea Creme or Ponds Cold Cream that if smelt will make you recognize it instantly. Cheap as well sells in Savers, Boots (where i am neway), Superdrug and your local chemist usually for £2.49 and it lasts for a long time.

I have tried lots of different cleansers, but this is by far the best. It removes every product from your skin and since using it i have noticed a reduction in the amount of spots i get (I have dry skin so I didn't get many but now i hardly get any atall!) Ok so the bottle isn't that attractive but just call it retro! I noticed that my skin was much brighter and my mum thought that I was wearing foundation but I had infact just taken all of my makeup off. My Nanny used to use this and up until she was about 80, she had hardly any wrinkles - her skin was amazing, she also used rose water. I love this product and would definitely buy it again and I highly recomend it to anyone!

I used to use this in my late teens and early 20s. A lot of water (and cleanser) has passed under the bridge since then. I am not a label snob but I have used brands from Boots, to Lancome, Chanel, Clarins and Dermologica. You get the picture. I was in Savers store the other day and spotted this on the shelf. As I have recently rediscovered some old retro treats, such as Fenjal bath creme and Badedas bath foam I decided to give this a try. I have now bought my second bottle. I love it. At first I thought it would be too runny for my liking but I actually prefer the texture and the fact that you put it on a cotton pad and swipe the dirt away rather than putting the cleanser directly on the skin and remove it as a second stage. And boy does it shift grime. Better than other cleansers I have tried. It does so gently and leaves skin really soft, great for this winter weather. It is perfumed but I do not notice it. Bottle is not great stylewise. White tearshaped, looks dated but it does not bother me. It woud be kept in my bathroom cabinet whatever it looked like so not fussed about its appearance, just its performance. Tip is not to pour too much on the pad otherwise it gets messy. Mine cost £2.69 in Savers. (£1 more in Superdrug.) If you are on a budget or want to discover a really good performing cleanser that does not treat the skin harshly, give this a go.

I just love this product and have been using it for over 30 years. There is no other cleanser like it. It very easily removes all trace of grime and make up. But it is getting very hard to find. Boots don't seem to stock it now. Which is a great shame.

this is the cheapest and best skin cleanser I have ever used. It acts part toner part moisturizer, gives your skin a very deep cleansing but doesn't strip away like a lot of astringents and toners do, leaves skin very soft. I use to remove make up then to clean and then splash with water. My mother used this and in her late forties people still thought she was in her early thirties...lol one of the ingredients is formaldehyde, so no wonder. Unfortunately I have not been able to find here in Canada, have to buy online.

I can't believe there is only one review on this product! But I nearly didn't find it - it's actually Anne French with an "e".
I have been using this for over 40 years so it must be good! My mother used to use it and she passed the tip on to me. I think the reason it hasn't been reviewed more widely is because it's probably deeply unfashionable! The plastic bottle, which has only changed very slightly in all the time I have been using it, is horrendous. White with a blue lid and sort of wavy sides.
But it is really cheap and efficient. I don't see the point in spending a fortune on a cleanser. What I want is something to get my face really clean and this does the job admirably. I like it because it is literally like milk - very thin and white. I hate those thick cleansers that leave a residue on the skin. They may be ok for dry skins but mine tends towards oiliness - less so now that I'm getting older but I still find Anne French cleansing milk is good. I apply this on cotton wool pads and because it's so cheap I can be very generous with it.
What I like about it more than anything else is that you can easily see how clean your face is. When wearing foundation I cleanse until the cotton pad comes clean. Even when not wearing make up it is surprising how much dirt comes off! You may have thought your face was clean but the evidence suggests otherwise.
It does have a very slight fragrance which I neither like nor dislike. They did produce a fragrance-free one at one stage but I haven't seen it around lately. Even the ordinary one is getting more difficult to find. The smaller Boots stores don't stock it. I generally get it in Superdrug but it's also found in good old-fashioned chemists shops (if you can find one).
