Caudalie Gentle Cleansing Milk

Time for a skincare post! Caudalie is a brand that got a lot of hype recently and I really wanted to try some of their stuff, especially since they use natural ingredients. There was a nice sale on FeelUnique and I bought this along with the Cleansing Water.

I’ve only ever used cleansing oils before and this is the first cleansing milk I’ve used. I have to say, I’m disappointed. Now this one clearly claims that it removes face and eye makeup but it’s just terrible at it. Even something small like removing sheer lipstick cannot be managed with this alone inspite of using it 2-3 times. It sort of dilutes and disperses the makeup but doesn’t get rid of it completely. If you used a toner or a makeup remover after cleansing to check, there would still be huge traces of makeup. It’s just shitty at that.

When you apply this, it’s like applying cream on your face, it massages nicely and you can either rinse it off or wipe it off with a cloth. Probably the only redeeming quality is that it moisturises your face really well. This gets rid of general dirt and greasiness but not makeup. And so, I  only use this in the morning to cleanse when obviously there is no makeup on my face. My skin feels clean and supple after using this.

This comes in a thick plastic bottle with a pump. The pump works well and  I generally need 2 pumps to get the right amount of product.

Overall, I will use it up but I definitely won’t be buying this again!  I have read so much about milk and cream cleansers being good at removing make up, but this has kind of put me off. Let me know what you use or suggest any other good ones!
