My Take on Joy Deep Cleansing Milk:
Well, I shall start with the most noticeable feature of this cleansing milk which is the smell. It is so strong and closely resembles Veet Hair Removing cream’s smell. In short, it is not pleasant and I don’t feel like cleansing my face with such a nausea-inducing smelly product. Anyway, I have oily and acne-prone skin and this makes my face more oily though it does the cleansing part okay. I used it to remove makeup and I had to literally use a lot of product to remove my eye make up and it left a whitish cast around my under eye area. It cleansed and lifted dirt off my neck and shoulders quite reasonably.
Reference the below pics, I have used Colorbar Soft Touch Lipstick, Lakme Jewel Sindoor, Faces Eye Pencil and Faces Lipstick swatches to show you the effectiveness of this cleansing milk.
The first swipe cleans the eye pencil and the sindoor partly. After the third swipe, they get completely cleaned. Also, the lipsticks had be wiped 3-4 times. All in all, I did not like the product much.
