As I had already mentioned in my previous posts that my skin type gets geared towards dry in winters so I try my best to get the products meant for dry skin. I got this cleansing milk for dry skin while strolling in Faces store.
The entire skin care range of Faces looks luxurious and soothing to the eyes. Faces Perfectly Gentle Cleansing milk comes in a sturdy, white plastic bottle with a transparent plastic pull off cap. On opening the lid, you can see a large pump dispenser. The pump dispenser needs to be twisted a bit to ooze out the cleansing milk. It is easy to control the amount of product to avoid any wastage. The cleansing milk is aimed at dry skin but now when my skin becomes an oil factory I feel it works well without making it all the more oily. The scent of the cleansing milk is mild and pleasant and won’t bother sensitive noses. It is pure opaque white in color.
The texture of the cleansing milk is soft and smooth with medium consistency. It contains granules particles which are kind of mineral salt though the company claims that they are milky beads. They are very fine and you can get the feel of the granules when you rub it with your fingers or apply it onto your skin. The cleansing milk works as both cleanser and scrub. I take two pea sized amount of cleansing milk on my hands, apply it onto my face and neck and then gently massage it using circular motions. The cleansing milk gives very cooling sensation to my skin. Although the scrub granules are not very harsh on the skin but I feel it is not meant for sensitive skin. The moment I massaged it towards the area around the nose, it gives some tingling and burning sensation. I totally disagree with the company’s claim of ‘Perfectly Gentle’. I then use a damp cotton ball and sweep it across the skin. After rinsing it with water I could see redness on the area around the nose. Overall my skin feels soft, smooth and clean. It removes all my makeup (even waterproof!) effectively without leaving a greasy residue behind. It does a good job of removing all dirt and grime off my face. It cannot be used around the eye area as it contains beads.
