L’Oreal Paris Gentle Cleansing Milk Review

Hey girls,

Taking the makeup off at the end of the day is fairly important for pore care. Removing it properly with the right product will actually be beneficial for your pores.  I have been using this for 2 years now and even though I’m changing makeup removers, I thought I should review this now.

My Take on L’Oreal Paris Gentle Cleansing Milk:

This product comes out white and it looks almost like milk. It’s got a runny and smooth texture. It’s easy to spread on the skin and feels cool when you apply on the skin.  Application is also easy as you can use this on a cotton pad and the product doesn’t sink into the cotton pad.

This however does not remove all my makeup at one go. After using this, there will still be traces of foundation, concealer, etc., on my face and I have to go all over again with a toner to remove the remaining makeup. It wouldn’t be ideal for those who use heavy makeup or someone who tends to layer their foundation. As for those who use light makeup, this will do well as it removes light makeup at one go and there will be barely any trace of makeup left behind.

Sadly, this doesn’t work well for eye or lip makeup and you will have to use a different remover. I found that it doesn’t remove eyeliner or mascara well and when it comes to lipstick, there would still be traces of it left on my lips even after using this remover. As the name states, it’s said to be gentle and it truly is gentle on the skin. During application, my skin had no weird reaction.  After application, it doesn’t leave any oily residue.  My skin feels refreshed, soft, and it doesn’t irritate my skin in any way at all. Sometimes when it gets into my eyes, it doesn’t sting as badly as other removers do. It stings a little but doesn’t hurt much and I just have to rinse my eyes with water.

This would be nice for most skin types as it’s very hydrating on the skin and soothes the skin after a day of makeup. However, this wouldn’t be a good product to use for girls with oily skin as this would be too oily and it may even cause breakouts.  Packaging wise, I would have to say that it’s tight, secure, sturdy and hygienic. You wouldn’t have to worry about germs contaminating the product. The product’s bottle is made of plastic so no worries about it breaking in half.  It is also travel friendly and a good product to chuck into your travel bag.

  1. Great review, Natasha! 🙂 Good that I did not pick this up the last time I saw it at Target. My skin is really oily! *nababana*
