This is a very gentle milk cleanser. I've been using this for years (maybe 4 or 5). It doesn't dry my skin out or disturb the natural balance of my skin. I'd describe my skin as normal to dry on my cheeks and normal to oily in my T-zone.
This will not fully remove your makeup. I used to only wear tinted moisturizer, and this did the trick for that. But if I'm wearing foundation, I first remove it with a cleansing water, then use this after to cleanse my skin and remove any last traces of makeup. I rinse it off with water, but it can also be tissued off.
It's fairly reasonably priced - in the UK I believe it's 12-14 retail. I use it quite liberally on my face and neck, and one bottle lasts me about 6-7 months (I do only use it at night though, I only splash my face with water in the morning).
I like that it's unscented, and I like the ingredients.
The only thing I don't like about it is the lid. It's a screw top with a narrow base. But the rest of the packaging is good - there's a little pinhole in the top, and you squeeze out the amount you want. You can control how much comes out.
Just a note - if you're used to cleaning your face with soap and getting that "squeaky clean" feeling, this won't give you that, as it uses vegetable oils to clean your face ("like dissolves like"). Don't worry though, it has done it's cleansing job, and left your natural skin barriers intact.
Bottom line: good, gentle, non-irritating skin cleanser - does it's job, good ingredients
Update: It seems to have been reformulated. Performs about the same. Differences: has a strong smell to it now, stings my eyes now.

I love how this smells, but it doesn't really take all of my makeup off (especially when the Sephora consultant said it would take *everything* off, including my mineral makeup) and seems to clog my pores. I still have to use an oil cleanser beforehand and it doesn't seem better than anything else I've tried, so after I finish my sample, I will continue using my Mario Badescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel.

HORRIBLE. I do not have sensitive skin but this product made my face turn blotchy red within minutes of using it. Also, I left my face feeling like there is a film on it...gross! I absolutely hate this product.

I hated this cleanser...and will not repurchase this again. I had a horrible allergic reaction to this cleanser... as I later found out that it had a nut oil in it.

This is a milky cleanser, with a very mild yoghurt type of scent, that spreads easily on your skin and massages in to leave it clean and fresh...

Sadly, it also burnt my skin after a few uses, so I had to discontinue use. It might be that my skin is used to oil cleansing, and so reacts badly to anything not 100% natural or just some ingredient in this that does not agree with my skin...don't know. I don't usually have adverse reactions to things. So, because of that, I only give this product a three. I liked everything about it as a morning cleanser, save the burning.

I really like this cleanser...I have to wet my face before I apply it or else it stings for some reason...This seems to cleanse my face without stripping it and leaves it calm and hydrated.

After trying a sample packet, I purchased the Korres 3-in-1 Milk Proteins Emulsion to use with my Clarisonic Mia. Unfortunately, after using it for a month or so, the pores on the sides of my nose started to clog - definitely the start of blackheads which I worked so hard to clear out.

This gentle, unscented creamy cleanser does not remove my eye makeup like it claims so I'll just use it to remove foundation and sunscreen before real cleansing. I don't care for the bottle and cap either. After I run out, I won't repurchase.

It's nice, it's gentle, it cleans the face, but it doesn't remove a stitch of eye-makeup. Thumbs down.

I have tried many milky cleansers and most of them do not remove makeup unless you wipe off with a cotton ball or towel. This one actually removes makeup if you use it like a normal cleanser, meaning washing off excess with water. However, it takes maybe a second washing for tough waterproof mascaras. I love that this product is unscented and all natural. It is soothing, moisturizing and feels like it cleanses the skin. I do have to go over the face with rosewater toner afterward to really get any excess off. One complaint I have is the screw-on cap/lid. Korres needs to redo this packaging and make a more convenient cap that does not require the lid to fit perfectly or it screws on crooked. Just a tad annoying for something that is used so often.

Oh how I loved this when I first started using it. I would always remove my makeup with baby oil, then rinse with water, then dry it up with a towel and then apply this for my second and final round of cleansing. Now it says in the instructions you're supposed to apply this on your skin and then either remove the excess with a cotton ball or rinse it off. I always went for the second option cause I just can't deal with the thought of "stuff" residue on my skin. Having dry skin, I was prepared to see it get drier yet, since I would rinse it with water. Alas, I was mistaken. This product was so gentle on my skin, it actually left a sort of protective moisture film on it, locking in a bit of hydration - basically not stripping it from its natural oils (however few). I was so impressed. For the first time in my dry-skinned life I could actually put water on my face (rinsing this off) before going to bed and not have to suffer for it. Therefore it is extremely soft and non-invasive, and it will leave your skin reasonably smooth even if it's naturally dry. It's also very lighweight and scent-less, so I imagine it would work great on sensitive skin as well. The only thing wrong with it was, after a week of daily use, I got allergic to it. The rash I got from it was nothing grave but it made my skin bumpy and hard and it also spread all over my neck and chest, causing me to scratch endlessly. Soon as I stopped using it, it was gone after 3-4 days. Such a shame. I'd recommend you try it out though, I doubt you'll get an allergic reaction to it - that stuff happens once in a blue moon, and it had to happen to me! Wouldn't repurchase solely for that reason.
