The glass bottle is held flat, thus it is very comfortable to hold. The cleansing milk is more fluid than I thought when reading the manufacturer description, relatively thin, I think. They must also be likely, because otherwise they certainly can not so easily from the glass bottle. The cleaning effect is good but, my makeup with foundation and powder, I got over it easily from. A face water you need afterwards is not necessarily, but there remain a residue of the cleansing lotion on the skin. The skin compatibility was also excellent. The product is very suitable for dry skin and does not dry out the skin. The scent was fresh and light citrus. The cleansing milk is hypoallergenic.
I absolutely love Weleda products as even though they are a little bit pricy they are still cheaper than other premium brands and they contain lovely natural ingredients instead of being stuffed full of chemicals and other things which aren’t good for the skin.
The gentle cleansing milk is beautiful to use if you have any kind of sensitivity to your skin as it is so gentle and doesn’t irritate it at all. I was having real trouble with my skin and it was flaring up for no reason and was red and very reactive and I used this at the time because I knew it wouldn’t aggravate it any more.
My skin is usually quite robust and although it can be sensitive it doesn’t normally hurt but when I was using this my skin was quite painful so I switched to using more natural and gentle products for a few weeks and it really helped it out.
Although it was extremely gentle it still left my skin feeling clean and it removed all the excess oil from my skin but it didn’t strip any of the natural oils in my skin or leave it feeling dry or tight. There was no pain when using it as it really was gentle and a pleasure to use.
It can be used to remove make-up and it is ok with this but not as good as a stronger cleanser at getting all the foundation off especially if like me you like to wear a lot of make-up on a night out. It does remove most of it but I did feel as though I needed to give my skin an extra rub with the cotton wool to get it all off.
I stopped using this because I noticed it was doing nothing for spots and my skin can become quite spotty especially when I have my period and I felt that even though this was cleaning my skin well it wasn’t doing anything to get rid of the spots. I also got sick of always having to use it separately from my shower as I like to multi task and wash my face in the shower.
I would definately use it again in a heartbeat if my skin becomes sensitive again though as it was excellent for this and really helped when my skin was misbehaving and flaring up.
