Korres Milk Soap
Advantages: A very good superficial cleanser, feels nice
Disadvantages: Doesn't cleanse deeply enough
Price: £4 for 2x40g
For: Gentle, soothing cleansing of sensitive skins
The packaging is a tidy little plastic box, perfect for taking travelling with you. It's pretty sturdy and fastens tightly so there are no worries about leakage or it opening in your luggage. It's also handy just to have as a soap dish, rather than just leaving them lying around on the sink or side of the bath.
The soaps are a milky white colour and quite small for a soap, but the perfect size really for facial use. The smell just like any normal soap, no special fragrance or anything, and they don't smell of milk like I was expecting them to!
They lather up pretty well when you add water to them, and it's a nice bubbly lather unlike most soaps which just give a smooth, consistency rather than a proper lather. It feels really soft on the skin and is lovely to use.
The lather rinses off really easily and my skin is left feeling really smooth and soft and cared for. It cleanses the skin but doesn't dry it out or make it feel tight at all like soaps tends to do, and it actually feels moisturised if anything.
The only problem I have with this soap is that it just doesn't cleanse well enough for my skin. It feels clean enough after use, but I found that after a few days of using it I had far more noticeable clogged pores than normal, so it's obviously only cleansing superficially rather than getting right down into the pores. So I think for those people who don't have a tendency towards clogged pores it would be great, but if you do it just won't cut it.
One soap lasted me about a month using it just on my face, so if you were to use it for the whole body as Korres suggest then it would be gone in no time at all. If you're just using it on your face though it's pretty good value for money if it works for you.
All in all I think this is a nice cleanser for skin which is not prone to clogging.
Thumbs up from me.
