I bought this product on the recommendation of a friend who recommended using a cleansing milk instead of a cleansing lotion on my face as my skin is dry and prone to being sensitive. Being a bit of a skincare junkie and having amassed a large amount of half used products, I was hesitant to spend a lot of money on a product I might not like, so I went in search of a cheap, budget option and this was it.
The first thing I noticed about the product was the smell, it had a lovely, fresch cucumber scent, which obviously played in well with the green packaging. I didn't want something with too much of a scent as strong perfumes can irritate my sensitive skin. I bought the product for normal and combination skin as opposed to the product for dry skin as I have heard that cream cleanser can live a bit of a residue on the face and that this would probably be worse with the dry skin version as it had added moisturising agents.
I have to say, after four weeks of using this cleansing milk, I really like it. It doesn't leave my skin feeling as clean as with a cleansing lotion or exfoliator, but it also doesn't leave my skin feeling as stripped as it usually does with those products. I would recommend using a toner afterwards though just to remove and excess impurities from the skin. I also really rate the one from this range. Since using this, I have found I have to use a lot less moisturiser after cleansing, mainly because my skin is not as dry.
I would recommend this to anyone who has normal / dry skin but for anyone with oily or combination skin, I think they would still need a more astringent cleanser. It is great value at between £2-3 and is often on offer with other products in the range for two for £4.
I'm a big fan of Garnier, I think it's a very reliable, reasonably priced brand
and I have to say I have been buying this product for years, along with its friend Toner.
I am quite prone to acne so it is important I use cleanser but sadly most of the time I can't be bothered! But occasionally I'll go through a phase of having the energy to cleanse, tone and moisturise every day, and after about a week, thanks to Garnier, my skin will be spotless - literally!
The stuff itself comes out as a thick, white liquid that smells very nice. Rather than using cotton wool to apply it you simply rub it all over your face and neck with your fingers until you are covered in a thin layer of the cleanser. Then you get cotton wool or tissue paper and use that to gently rub the cleanser off. The cleanser feels so cool and refreshing against the skin that I like to leave it on a bit longer than I have to. It also feels good rubbing it off, and it's so satisfying seeing all the make-up and dirt being taken off. It's extremely effective at getting rid of every last bit of impurity from your face.
After I've finished with the cleansing milk, I then apply Garnier Clean & Fresh toner with cotton wool, then a moisturiser which is not necessarily Garnier. I like variety when it comes to moisturisers.
You usually get the cleansing milk in a nice pale green 200ml bottle and they can cost anything from £2.50-£4, depending where and when you buy it. I usually buy mine from Superdrug.
I bought this cleansing milk by garnier in tescos this week as I had run out of cleanser and this one was on offer half price. I paid £1.43 for a 200ml bottle which I thought was reasonable for such a great product.
This garnier cleansing milk comes in a lime green bottle which really stood out on the shelves. It has a flip open top and you just squeeze the bottle a bit to get the product out. This cleansing milk gently removes makeup and refreshes your skin. All you need to do is apply some of the product to a cotton pad and wipe over your face and neck without rubbing. The product itself is not a milk consistency, it is like a moisturising cream, which is a milky white colour.
This cleansing milk is enriched with grape water and has such a light formula. It definitely doesn't feel heavy or greasy when you are applying it to your skin.
This product comes out of the bottle quite quick, and when I applied it to the cotton pad, and wiped it over my face it soaked into the skin pretty quickly without even rubbing it in, and I was constantly reapplying more product to the cotton pad. You do need to use a lot of this product to take all your make up off and you do have to go over 3 or 4 times before it is completely all off too, but it did make my skin feel really soft and quite moisturised. It didn't leave my skin greasy at all, and it definitely made my face feel refreshed and clean.
This cleansing milk I bought is suitable for normal or combination skin, but they also do a baby pink one for dry and sensitive skin. This can also be used to remove your eye make up, although I haven't tried it on my eyes yet as I have a separate eye make up remover.
Garnier claims they have used naturally derived active ingredients which have been carefully extracted to preserve their quality and purity. The product has also been dermatologically tested, and I did not experience any irritation at all with this product.
Although I needed to use a lot of this product to take all my make up off properly, I did like the results in the end and would definitely buy again, although only on offer as I don't think it is worth its usual £2.87 price tag!
After having used a number of high end skin care products, I was left feeling disappointed in that these so called premium products did not give premium results.
On a whim, well, when Garnier Clean and Fresh cleansing milk was on a half price promotional offer in Boots, I bought it to try. The bottle is a simple plastic 200 ml affair with a flip top lid, some might say it's not very glamourous or sexy looking. I say it is very easy to use and avoids spillage or waste. Not fiddly at all.
It is easy to use, apply a small amount to a cotton pad and sweep gently over the face, eye lids and lips. It is very gentle and does not cause any irritation to the eyes or skin. It is also very effective at removing all types of make up, including water proof mascara, stubborn eye liners and general every day gunk and grime on the skin.
I would highly recommend this product as a cleanser or as a general eye make up remover to anyone. It's often on 1/3 off or 1/2 off in Superdrug every few months. Other products in the range e.g. toner, moisturiser are also very good indeed.
This is one of two in the Garnier Clean cleansing range. The other alternative is for those with dry or sensitive skin and comes in a pink bottle and is normally placed on an adjacent shelf to the Clean and Fresh range. This cleansing milk is actually part of a complete range offered by Garnier such as face washes, toners and cleansing wipes and all the products are colour colded green or pink respectively.
The cleanser I am looking at is in the Clean and Fresh range in the green bottle. This is designed for people who have either normal or combination skin and is designed to act within the skin's natural balance. This is a cleansing milk and designed to be used with cotton wool to wipe off make-up and dirt from your face.
It comes in a light green bottle (though I think the pink version is prettier) and holds 200ml. It tells you a bit of information on the front such as the skin type it's designed for and tells you that it contains cleansing micro-oils and fruit extract and is designed for face and eyes though interestingly they also do an eye makeup remover in this range so a bit of a mixed message perhaps. It has a white flip top lid. One of the advantages about this bottle is that you can see how much is left just by holding it up to the light which is nice because I hate it when a product suddenly runs out without warning.
To use simply pour a small amount onto a cotton wool ball or pad and wipe the makeup off your face making sure to get the bits around the hairline and around the nose. It takes me about thirty seconds to wipe my face clean. Be wary of getting squeeze happy though, once or twice, well actually lots of quite often, I've poured out way too much and turned the cotton wool pad a bit soggy which makes it really difficult to use.
It works quite well I've found. Normally about tow swipes would be enough to remove the makeup. I have no qualms about using it on the eye area. I can't really be bothered with separate cleansers for the eyes, seems a waste of money, and perhaps a bit of a con and just a bit fiddly to have to messs around with two separate products. It does handle eye makeup sufficienly perhaps a little more effort required with things like mascara. My skin doesn't feel tight or dry after using this which is a major plus.
However, though this product takes off the makeup I would not rely on it to remove oils or bacteria from your face so I always use a face wash or a hot flannel afterwards to ensure that my face is clean as well as makeup free. Also bear in mind that sometimes you have traces of the cleanser which need rinsing off anyway.
This sells for £3.12 at Boots and Superdrug sells it for £2.99 with an offer on reducing it down to £1.85 right now so it's a good time to try it out. I find this bottle lasts about five months roughly. Having been using this for about three years now I would say I was quite happy with it.
Garnier Cleansing Milk. Finally, iv found something that removes my makeup without stinging, leaving my skin dry or giving me spots. After endless searching the best makeup remover is here!
This stuff suits sensitive skin and it says it leaves no greasy feel, which is very true. After removing your makeup your skin will look refreshed and feel light.
To apply, you massage the cleansing milk into your face then remove it with a cotton pad. You can see the brilliant results on the pad after. All your makeup will be removed including eye makeup! Theres no need to by a separate product to do your eyes as its all in one bottle.
At the beginning of this review I said how this product doesnt give you spots and thats true. With other product they irritated my skin and caused either allergic reactions or dry skin patches where the skin has been actually burnt away. With this product it leaves your skin feeling moisturised and clean.
