As a kid I inherited all of my beauty supplies from a huge closet my mum had. Since I can remember she’s never been one for a specific routine and makeup is reserved for special occasions but she had a wealth of products waiting to be pinched by my pre-teen self.. and did I. Cleansing milk felt so grown up and although I wouldn’t need it for some time I liked using it. Since the age of 16 when I had the means to buy my own skincare I’ve opted for scrubs and foams marketed at oily, blemish prone skin and wouldn’t have even considered using a cleansing milk until this landed on my doorstep. It reminds me a lot of the Simple cleanser I used to use and judging by the colour scheme I’m guessing that’s their plan. I’ve used it a few times now to remove my makeup, I cleanse again afterwards with a balm or whatever I am currently using but it’s a lovely step to first massage away my makeup. I use cotton wool or (more often) a baby wipe to remove the lotion and although one cleanse with this does not give me totally clean skin it does feel smoother and if I really didn’t want to wash my face over the sink I think twice plus toning to get rid of any residue would do the trick.
As with anything these days it comes down to time, I know a lot of you don’t have (or don’t make) time for your skincare routine but I enjoy it and am lucky enough to have that time to myself every evening to dedicate so it’s not great shakes for me. I do prefer to cleanse with hot water rather than lotion and cotton wool but that’s just my preference, this is a nice alternative.
