When looking for a new cleanser recently I came across this product, Olay Daily Facial's balancing milk seemed the perfect choice for me. It was a milk cleanser aimed at combination/oily skin, which is my skin type. I love to use a nice cleansing lotion on a morning and evening, as I feel face washes can leave my skin feeling tight and dried out.
The packaging drew me in immediately with this product. The familar Olay logo standing out at me and the blue and purple theme gave it a professional and sleek appearance. There is the added bonus for me of it coming in a tube rather than a pump bottle, my previous cleanser was a pump bottle and I wasn't too keen on it. This cleanser has a flip top lid and the packaging makes it easy to squeeze out the cleanser.
This Balancing Milk is design to gently cleanse and enhance the appearance of your skin. It contains Sage, Green Tea & Aloe Vera, a lovely combination of caring ingredients!
The milk has a lovely smell to it, something that actually reminds me of the Soap and Glory range, but I can't quite put my finger on which product! Either way the smell wins points with me, there's nothing worse than something which smells too chemically!
I squeeze some of the cleanser onto a big cotton wool pad and massage this into my skin. This cleanser is so gentle on my skin and I instantly notice that it's not leaving behind any greasy residue, it's absorbed into the skin instantly and actually wipes away excess oil and leaves my skin feeling wonderfully clear. The milk is so gentle I will often use it to remove any masacara that may remain around my eyes, without it causing any irritation.
After cleansing my skin feels wonderfully soft and I notice my skin is shine free, this skin does extremely well balancing out combination and oily skin!
I have been using this cleansing milk for 2 weeks and I have noticed a good improvement. This cleanser has not caused me to breakout in extra blemishes and if anything, it's helped fight them! It does a great job of removing excess oil, much better than my previous No7 cleanser which whilst I didn't pay full price for, does cost much more than this cleanser, and I feel doesn't go as good a job at all.
The tube contains 150ml and I've found that only a small amount is needed when applying, and I can already tell this product will last me a long time.
I've been so impressed with this cleanser that when it runs out I know I will be purchasing another. I only paid £2.20 for my tube from the reduction shelf at Boots however, the full price is only £4.39 and for something so essential in my skincare routine I would say this is certainly a value for money product.
If you have oily or combination skin, then I would recommend giving this product a go. It removes shine, oils and dirt without leaving any greasy residue or making your skin feel heavy. Instead you will be left with soft, smooth skin, which also smells quite nice!
