The Ultra Gentle Cleansing Milk is slightly thicker than a milk, but I quite like the consistency - it's not a gloopy mess but doesn't run everywhere when you get some out of the bottle. The smell is typical of the shea butter range, which I adore, and just smells clean and fresh and like you're wrapped in cotton wool. Lush. Other ingredients in the cleansing milk are liquorice extract to sooth, rosemary leaf extract and sunflower seed oil, and there are absolutely no parabens, so it's safe for most skin types. I have generally been using this after my showers, face mainly clear of excess make-up, and quite often before I go to bed, so almost as a cleansing face mask. I use a small 20p size amount (or 10p if I'm feeling generous) and massage the milk into my skin in little sections, and if I feel an area needs more, then I can apply more. After use, my face feels plump, hydrated and really rejuvenated. I've found in the last couple of weeks I've been using it that my skin feels a lot clearer and fresher, especially in the mornings.
It's a brilliant item, and since using it, I don't think I could not have it in my skincare collection. It's one of those items that you could take on holiday, or on a work trip or just after a long day, and know it will do the job in a simple easy step. If you have oily skin, it might not be the cleanser you're looking for as it is 'ultra gentle' but it would definitely give your skin a refreshing and hydrant boost. The full bottle retails at £15.00 and you get a massive 200mls. It also comes with a pump for easy use. Using this cleanser is now one of my more recent rituals, and I recommend you pop down to L'Occitane to see if you can sample this lovely product.
