We all have heard of CTM which stands for Cleansing Toning and Moisturizing. These 3 steps are very important for proper skin care. For the first step i.e. Cleansing I am using the Himalaya’s Cleansing Milk for quite some time.
Cleansing milk works great if you have dry skin as they are very moisturizing and have a creamy texture like those of body lotions.
For all skin types.
A special blend of herbs that gently removes dirt, makeup and daily impurities while maintaining your skin’s natural moisture balance. Lemon, a natural cleanser and astringent, clarifies and refreshes. Grape seed rejuvenates and Mentha sp cools your skin to keep it clear, healthy and radiant.
Directions for use:
Add a few drops to a cotton pad and wipe over face and neck. For best results follow with Refreshing and Clarifying Toner.
Quantity: 100 ml
Price: Rs. 80
Shelf life: 3 years
My experience with Himalaya Herbals Refreshing Cleansing Milk
Texture: It is white colored and creamy in texture. Neither too runny nor too thick in consistency.
Fragrance: It has a mild and pleasant fragrance which is refreshing.
I generally use this cleansing milk daily after coming from office. I am not an everyday makeup girl. So, what I wanted is a gentle cleansing milk which helps me in getting rid of the dirt and pollution.
After using this I have felt that it takes out the dirt, excess sebum perfectly from my face. My face appears clean and refreshed. It moisturizes the skin. For dry skin, it would be great to use this cleansing milk. For oily skin, you can use plain water to wash your face after using this cleansing milk. I have combination skin, so wiping off with a cotton ball is enough for me to get rid of the excess oil and sebum.
The only problem I faced was in wiping of my kajal / eye liner. Be careful when you are using this near your eyes. If it gets into the eyes accidentally, it stings very badly. I just run to wash my face and eyes with water thoroughly to ease the sting.
It may not be suitable to remove heavy makeup. When I apply the CC (Complexion Care) cream and other creams of this type I need to use this cleanser twice to get rid of the makeup residue.
- Removes dirt effectively
- For daily use, it’s a good product
- Provides moisturization
- Dermatologically tested
- Available widely in all the stores
- Stings badly if get into the eyes
- For heavy makeup, it’s not that good
HASB recommendation: I would recommend this as a daily use cleanser. It works great to remove dirt and provides moisturization. But for heavy makeup, you can give it a miss. Overall, it’s an average product.
HASB Rating: 3/5
I have also reviewed Himalaya’s Refreshing and Clarifying Toner (Click here to know more). I use it after wiping of the cleansing milk.
Let me know if you have used the same combo and how did it worked out for you
