Review: Clarins Lait Demaquillant Velours (Cleansing Milk)

 

review

My search for a makeup remover led me to the Clarins counter. I’ve tried the Lait Demaquillant Velours before but the maid broke the bottle I bought. It’s only a few days ago that I replaced it. I bought a bottle of Benefit Gee That Was Quick Makeup Remover when I was in Singapore but I stored it in my carry-all so the airport lady confiscated it. What a waste of money *tears*

My skin is combination. I’ve tried the popular Shu Uemura cleansing oil variants. Not only are they expensive but it leaves my skin feeling icky and oily. So this time, I decided I either get a cleansing milk or a gel. I almost bought L’Occitane Ultra Comforting Cleansing Milk but the saleslady turned me off. Another one of my choices was Chanel Precision Creamy Cleansing Milk. I love the scent but the price is way over my budget. It’s also for dry skin if I remember correctly. So I finally decided to go with the reliable Clarins Cleansing Milk.

Clarins Cleansing Milk is a tissue-off makeup remover. It has a light clean scent which reminds me of baby powders. To use it, you just apply a quarter-size amount on your palm and spread the cream on your face. Do not use circular motion. Instead, lay your hand flat on your face and lift quickly. Repeat several times until it thickens and creates a suction effect.

You may use a toner to remove traces of the cleansing milk but it’s okay to leave the product on your face.

I like this product because it leaves my skin supple and, if I’m not mistaken, it acts also as a moisturizer. I use Clarins Lotion Tonique afterwards but it’s just my preference.

I would love to try that Chanel Precision Creamy Cleansing Milk. Maybe when I have some extra money to spare.
