“ Brand: The Body Shop / Type: Cleansing Milk / Subcategory: Milk / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types / What it does: Cleanses, „
I bought this product to take off my make up, and thought the price was rather reasonable for £4 for 250ml. It is one of the cheaper cleansers that the body shop sell, and I think it good for the money.
I have had my cleanser for several months and have a lot left in the bottle. The bottle is clear so you can see how much is left, and the black cap has a small hole so not too much comes out at one time. I find it easy to only get the amount I need on a cotton bud for example.
The cleanser is green in colour and smells really nice and refreshing. The cucumber scent is pleasant and not too much. I use the cleanser to sweep over my face to remove make up and it does the job well. I have to use a couple of cotton wool pads to get all my make up off but I have found this with most cleansers. I feel it removes my make up well, and leaves my skin feeling smooth, soft and moisturised.
I have also found that the cleanser is not too greasy on my skin; I have t-zone skin and I found it works well for me. If you want to try a different toner I would recommend this one for good value, removing make up well and leaving your skin soft and smooth.
I bought this and the Cucumber freshening water for £3.50(total) from a Body Shop at Home Representative but instore these retail for £4 each.
"A beauty classic returns. This gentle cleansing milk refreshes skin as it wipes away make-up and the grime of the day.Cleansing.Refreshing. Gentle on the Skin."
This definately lives up to what i claims. Make up is removed effortlessly as the easily blendable consistency lifts almost all of your make-up easily off your face. I find when using this cleanser, two smaller applications (onto a cotton wool pad) work better than one larger application.
This cleanser is suitable for all skins types and is also suitable for sensitive skin, which I suffer with.
The cleanser is very refreshing and cooling when applied and leaves your skin feeling smooth and looking dewy. I suffer with Dry/Sensitive skin so the slight residue that is left on your face does not bother me, however people with oily skin may dislike this factor. In saying this, the majority of the residue that the cleanser leaves on your face is removed with the toner or by lightly pattign your face with a towel.
If you do not plan on using a toner following this then you may feel that the excess oil left on your face is needed to be removed with a towel or a tissue.
If you want to be left feeling refreshed and moisturised with a naturally glowing skin then this is perfect.
A little of each product goes a long way; so you will be picking up a bargain.
Definately recommend for dull/ dry/normal skin.
I wouldn't normally consider the Body Shop for skincare as on the whole their products are beyond my budget. Last time I was there though I spotted this cucumber cleanser which is much cheaper than most of their cleansers, at the much more reasonable price of £4 for the 250ml bottle so I thought I'd give it a go.
The bottle it comes in is clear plastic so you can see easily how much is left, and it has a black flip top lid that makes it easy and convenient to use. It looks nice but not as high quality as the Body Shop's more expensive cleansers, but that's surely to be expected.
They call it a milk but I'd say it's more of a lotion really, having a thicker consistency than I would expect of a cleansing milk. The texture is smooth and creamy and the scent is lovely and fresh like cucumber, and it smells natural.
It's really easy to use by just massaging it into the skin then wiping it off with a tissue, or if you're in even more of a rush just use it on cotton wool and wipe across the skin. It massages in easily and I only need to use a small amount. It feels really lovely to use and manages to feel refreshing and comforting all at the same time.
I was really surprised at how quickly and easily this dissolved my makeup, especially my eye makeup. It works so well for this and leaves the skin on my eye area feeling really clean and fresh as well as moisturised, soft and smooth.
They say it is suitable for all skin types but unfortunately I found it just doesn't suit my oily skin at all. My skin just doesn't feel clean after using it, even though it does have a fresh feeling form the cooling sensation of the cucumber. My skin does feel soft and smooth after but it really feels like it still needs a good wash so I think this is definitely better for drier skin types. I'll continue using mine as a makeup remover but not as a cleanser from now on.
Body shops cucumber cleansing milk is excellent having used plenty of cleansers in my time I have finally found one that works The cucumber cleanser is for oily/problem skin it smells ok its a light cleanser that really does clean you skin really well and is great at getting lipstick off! It leaves your skin feeling tingly clean and not at all greasy like some cleansing lotions can do Its reasonably priced I tend to buy a big bottle of it as this lasts me forever. My last bottle was a bit of a bargain it was £4.50 for the large bottle size as it was in body shops sale!
