My favourite cleanser!! I wear a full face of makeup most days of the week, including foundation, and love the clean feeling that this cleanser gives! I have used it for about 4 years now and usually purchase on the Clarins website as they often stock the packs which include a full size cleanser and toner, with a makeup bag and one deluxe sample, for the price of a cleanser alone. This can be rinsed or tissued off - I prefer to rinse as it makes my skin feel cleaner. I highly recommend the Clarins cleansing method as instructed on their website as it really does make a difference to the skin, and mine always looks glowing and healthy post cleanse.

When I first started using the Cleansing Milk, I hated it. Didn't remove any makeup, didn't seem to really do anything. Only thing it seemed to have going for it was that I liked the scent. Hated it enough to take it back to the Clarins counter and return. The SA had no issues with doing a return, but she asked me how I was using it - and I replied that I rubbed a little in and rinsed off. She told me that I really needed to do the Clarins method, which is basically to warm it up in your hands, then place your hands over all the areas of your face, hold for a few seconds, and lift, creating a gentle "suction". I didn't really believe her but I decided to give it one more chance since I really liked the fragrance. To my surprise, the Clarins method actually works pretty well for me! I wear a full face most days of the week, and nearly all comes right off...I do have to clean up a little eye MU residue and toner sometimes gets trace amounts of foundation but I don't really mind that. My favorite thing about this cleanser is that it doesn't make my skin feel irritated or dry after cleansing. Most other cleansers, even those for sensitive skin, make my face feel tight and dry afterward. As I mentioned earlier, I also enjoy the fragrance. Some may find it a bit too perfumed for their liking, but it doesn't seem to linger long after cleansing. Would I buy it again? I would! I will admit to getting bored easily and switching MU and skincare frequently but I definitely would keep this cleanser in the rotation!

I don't get this product, the sales lady explained to me how to use it however I'm quite lazy and prefer to just rub my face with my hands sporadically! It also didn't seem to remove any makeup what so ever. It almost left a weird film on my skin after cleansing. Will not repurchase.

I used this for a few months, and my skin got progressively worse. I have around 3 spots a month normally, but when I was using this, my face was a complete mess. I continued using for so long as I blamed it on diet, but as soon as I stopped my skin is clear. When I tried to return an unopened bottle, the sales assistant told me it was impossible I had reacted, and it must be something else.

It doesn't lather and give you that soapy coverage you feel you need in the shower, but wow does it clear up skin.
My face has had less pimples with this gentle, soft cleanser.
Can get a large bottle for about 20-25 with shipping on eBay.
My favourite cleanser thus far.

Pros: Smells good, doesn't dry out skinCons: Does NOT remove makeup like it claims, leaves oily film, overpriced, need to use a lot to clean your face.I LOVE the way this product smells. It actually reminds me of a cream my great grandma used to use that I always enjoyed smelling. When I smelled this cleanser for the first time, it took me back to my childhood in a way and I fell in love with it. I hoped that the product itself wouldn't let me down...but it did. It claims to remove makeup, but it doesn't. I follow the directions and as soon as I'm done rinsing my face and I look in the mirror, there is still makeup all over my face, except now it looks all oily and smudged. Eww! I read to repeat if all your makeup isn't removed, so I did. And still, not all was removed. Plus, this is really pricey so I don't want to have to repeat over and over again if it doesn't do what it's supposed to the first time. I think for it to remove all your makeup, you have to be wearing only a very light powder...very light. My skin is naturally oily but in for the last year, I've had it under control very well. So now, I can use moisturizers and creams that I couldn't before without breaking out or being too oily. But this cleanser just makes my face overly oily again. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone that has oily skin, even though it says for oily to normal skin on the bottle. Since I have the full size bottle, I still use it on occasion to use it up. I just know that my face will be a little extra oily throughout the night. Once I finish, I wont be purchasing again...although I wish I could still have that wonderful smell around...*sigh*

edit: Cleanse off oils/balms are way better, cheaper and easier to deal with (no cloth required). This is too expensive for the quantity, and it irritates my eyes. not cool.I like it (sans annoying packaging), but its ridiculously overpriced. It does melt makeup very effortlessly but it can irritate your eyes if you linger too long scrubbing your eyes with the product. Its also fragranced, wich isnt BAD but I wish it wasn't. If you use it you must remove remnants with toner or second cleanser or you will break out. Bottom line its too pricy to repurchase, and the drugstore alternative St.Ives fresh Skin makeup remover and facial cleanser, works similarly, it isnt fragranced, doesnt sting your eyes and costs less than 5 dollars. Its not as efective as the Clarins milk, but comes close enough, speacially if you use an eye mkaeup remover beforehand. Wont repurchase.

No no no. I put it over my face, massage, tissue off and rinse. It left a oily film and broke me out immediately!! Maybe I'll just use it as bath cream...

I like that this product comes in a big package (400 ml!) and I like the pump to use it.I am not fond of milk cleansers to remove make up as I prefer oily make up removers even for foundation but I really like this as it removes almost everything, not mascara. It works better on my face than any other though and considering the price (a shop near my home always discounts Clarins' products) it is quite good.The best use I have for it is to massage my face thoroughly after using it to remove make up or even if I had no make up on, insisting on oily parts of my face (chin, nose and forehead). Then I wash with Clarins' Cottonseed foaming thing or Shiseido Pureness foaming. It is a good product if you can buy it at a good price, I wouldn't buy it at full price though.

This is a soft and velvety cleansing lotions and it smells divine (all Clarins products have such distinguished fragrances that I sometimes buy them for fragrance's sake alone...) but it doesn't work that great compared to other products. Every time I use it I have huge quantities of makeup left on my skin (my toner pad comes out beige), plus my skin gets dry and uncomfortable.Unworth its high price.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
