What makes a cleanser something that is worth buying when you can use other products to remove your makeup, such as coconut oil or other oils? Is it worth paying these high prices on these luxurious bottles? So many questions..
When I tried this cleanser today, it was very pleasant, lightweight and with a satin milk texture.. medium consistency and with a light trademark fragrance as per most Guerlain products.
According to Guerlain’s US website, it was found that:
Skin is comforted, soft and supple for 9 out of 10** women.
Skin appears nourished: +36%*.
*Self-assessment, 30 women, twice-daily application for four weeks.
**Satisfaction test, 30 women, twice-daily application for four weeks.
I decided to venture and purchase it and am yet to try it to remove all my makeup tonight. Basically I massage the cleansing milk over my face, then remove it with a makeup removing soft cloth soaked in warm water. That leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed.
The ingredients list is below:
INGREDIENTS: AQUA (WATER) • ISOHEXADECANE • ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE • GLYCERIN • BUTYLENE GLYCOL • PROPYLENE GLYCOL • HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE • DICAPRYLYL CARBONATE • LIMNANTHES ALBA (MEADOWFOAM) SEED OIL • BUTYROSPERMUM PARKII (SHEA BUTTER) • PHENOXYETHANOL • OCTYLDODECETH-25 • PARFUM (FRAGRANCE) • ACRYLATES/C10-30 ALKYL ACRYLATE CROSSPOLYMER • TROMETHAMINE • TETRASODIUM EDTA • NIGELLA SATIVA SEED OIL • SCUTELLARIA BAICALENSIS ROOT EXTRACT • CITRIC ACID
On Guerlain’s website, this milk is described as a Lait de Beaute which means beauty milk. Notice how the word ‘remover’ is actually invisible. A mere gesture of cleansing your skin, has become for our french beauty lovers, an act of dealing with beauty.
