I have been using Clarins Cleansing Milk With Gentian since May 2011 as daily makeup remover and I’ve been liking it since then. I finished a 400ml jumbo bottle last month and I’m now using the 200ml bottle which I think is going to finish soon :). Time for a review!
I own Clarins Cleansing Milk With Gentian in 3 different sizes; 50ml, 200ml and 400ml. Still searching for the 100ml to complete my collection LOL!!!
|Deluxe sample size 50ml | Retail size 200ml RM95 | Limited Edition Jumbo size 400ml|
A velvety light textured emulsion in cool white, with a fresh natural fragrance and a similar pH to the skin. It leaves skin thoroughly cleansed and calmed.

The question is how to use this cleansing milk? As you might aware from most of my Clarins review, Clarins do not recommend swiping method which could pull you skin elasticity away! The correct way to use this is as simple as ABC. It is called Clarins gentle cleansing method. To increase effectiveness and prevent over-stimulation, Clarins recommends the following technique: Place hands flat, without pressing, over the entire face and then lift briskly away to create a suction effect. This literally draws out and lifts make-up and grime as gently as possible. Repeat this movement five or six times, then rinse skin thoroughly with tepid water.
Still a bit blurry? Here’s a simple pictorial.
|I smudge some BB cream on the back of my hand. I applied more so that you can see clearly when the cleansing milk breaks down the BB cream.|
|As it’s just a small portion on the back of my hand, I use reasonable amount of cleansing milk. For the whole face, you need at least a 1cm height of a 50cent amount.|
|First, place hands flat, without pressing, over the entire face. This is when all the cleansing milk is on your face.|
The result? Soft, bright and clean face from makeup! I find this cleansing milk very effective in removing all my makeup as I don’t see any traces on the cotton pad when I tone my face with toner.
1) Clean all makeup and leave no traces.
2) Face is more soft and bright after using.
3) Doesn’t leave the skin tight after using.
4) Love the scent.
5) One bottle last quite long too.
1) Need to wash face with cleansing foam after using as this could be a bit oily even after removing. Perhaps this is cream-based. I have no problem with washing face after that as that is the correct way to go.
