What I like about Clarins other than their products is that they almost always have skincare value sets which inevitably include some samples of their cleansers. One of the value sets I purchased some time ago had this 10ml Clarins Cleansing Milk With Alpine Herbs for dry or normal skin.
This soothing cream cleanser lifts away make-up and impurities with a gentle touch. It contains Clarins’ proprietary blend of softening and toning plant extracts — including Alpine Herbs, St. John’s Wort, Sweet Almond, Marshmallow and Linden — to help maintain skin’s perfect moisture balance for optimum comfort and radiance.
To apply following Clarins gentle cleansing method – warm Cleansing Milk to skin temperature in the palms of the hands. Apply by gently placing the flats of the hands over the face. Hold for several seconds without pressing. Briskly lift the hands off the face. Repeat 5-6 times, including on the neck: the milk will gradually thicken and create a suction effect to lift off make-up and impurities without irritating or pulling the skin. Rinse with water or remove with a tissue.
I used this on my eyelids to remove eye make-up and it didn’t sting or irritate my eyes. This cleanser feels really soothing and softens my skin as I cleanse. I don’t find the herbal scent to be too strong at all. It does a good job at removing all make-up residue and when I swept a cotton pad soaked in toner across my face, there was no trace of make-up.
