“ Brand: Decleor / Type: Cleansing Water / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types / What it does: Cleanses / Product line: Decleor Aroma Cleanse „
I had been wanting to try Decelor's cleanser for ages and finally bit the bullet around a year ago and purchased it from QVC. According to Decleor, this ultra-light milk cleanser gently dissolves make-up and impurities from the face and eyes. Suitable for all skin types, Essential Oils of Lavender, Petitgrain and Mallow soften, calm and decongest to leave the skin fresh, clear and perfectly balanced. This can be purchased direct from Decleor, QVC and some online retailers, the RRP is around £22 for 400ml of cleanser.
The product comes in an expensive looking, tall bottle which has a flip top lid. The product is easily dispensed from the bottle by giving it a little squeeze. The cleansing milk is light in consistency, not thick; it's much like single cream, it is white in colour and has a strong fragrance which I don't believe to be synthetic. The fragrance is due to the essential oils and natural ingredients and smells fresh and expensive.
The directions state that the product is to applied with fingertips and wiped off with cotton wool. I find applying the milk to be fairly straightforward, however due to it being so light, I have to apply it to my face in 3 stages rather than 1 - otherwise the milk would run off my face! This is only a minor problem, but for those who prefer something super quick then this may put them off.
The milk is cooling and soft on my skin, it is pleasant to massage over my skin and it can instantly feel the moisturising properties of the essential oils. It removes make-up effectively and is simple to wipe off. My skin feels clean, soft and fresh after removing this. Decleor recommend using toner after this product to remove all traces of make-up, something which I follow.
I suffer with oily skin and blemishes and I found that this product did not clog my pores or cause me to break out and it did help balance my oily skin. I have been using this on and off for 12 months and I have never experienced any irritation or reaction to this product. I would estimate that with daily use, a 400ml bottle should last 3-4 months.
Overall, I would recommend this cleansing milk to all skin types who prefer a lighter cleansing milk as opposed to using a thick heavy cream on the face. It removes make-up and leaves skin feeling soft and clean. The only downside is the price, so I will have to remove a star; it is a good product but I would have to deeply consider paying full price, I think I will turn back to QVC.
I recently purchased a Decleor gift set that contained a range of products designed for sensitive skin and this cleanser came as part of the set.
It came in a small plastic bottle presumably produced specially for this set in a 75ml sample size.
The bottle has a cap that lifts up and you simply pour the product onto a cotton wool pad.
As this is described as a water I thought that the product would have the consistency of a toner and that in this sample size I would only get 2 or 3 uses . However the product is actually more a gel consistency and so sits on the cotton wool pad and doesn't soak through like a toner.
It is a really effective cleanser and seems to remove make up and grime much more effctively than a cream cleanser . One or two pads cleans my face and neck and takes off every scrap of makeup and dirt easily. I usually turn the pad over and use the other side as the product does soak in when you press the pad on your face.
There is no need to rinse and I love this formulation as my skin feels really clean and unlike cream cleansers I don't feel the need to use a toner to remove any suprlus cleanser. That is a real advantage when your skin is reacting to evrything as less is more in that situation.
It doesn't sting or irritate which is fantastic for me as the reason I bought this kit was my skin had become super sensitive and I had developed spots , flaky patches and everything I used made my face sore and irritated.
It is really gentle and my skin feels really soft and soothed after use, almost as though I have used a moisturiser.
It is very easy to use , simply lightly sweep over your face , what is amazing is how little pressure you need to apply , yet it really grabs all the dirt and makeup with minimal effort.
Perfect when your skin feels sore and irritated as the less pressure the better.
It does say this is fragrance free, but that isn't the case as it does have a fresh natural scent which I assume is the plant and flower essential oils.
The ingredients are :
Camomile, Néroli, Lavender and Marjoram Essential Oils, Rose, Sweet Clover and Mallow Essential Waters.
Price and Availability
Normal sizes are 250ml and 400ml . Shop around as Decleor sell the 250ml at £22.20 but Feel Unique sell a 400ml size for £21.70 on line.
Would I Recommend
Yes I love this and have already bought this in a larger size. The 75ml lasted me just over a week so I hope the 400ml will last me at least 6 weeks.
It is really kind to my skin, feels refreshing and I love the gel consistency and the smell. It was a god send when my skin was at its worse last month and was reacting to all my normal products.
I am very impressed with how effective it is at cleaning my skin without really applying any pressure, which is so helpful when your skin is sore and reactive.
I haven't used a product like this before as the consistency is so different from any other cleanser I own and it has made such a difference to my skin as it is so gentle.
What I love is my face feels really clean soft and it feels so refreshing . My skin feels soothed but ultraclean almost like using soap and water but without the tight feeling that would leave on my very dry skin.
I would give this 6 stars if Dooyoo allowed.
