Holiday Haulin' #2 - Clarins 'Cleansing Milk'








Just like the Chanel 'Vitalumiere Aqua' purchase this was a complete impulse, spur of the moment buy. I wanted to use up my euros and there wasn't a huge selection at duty free in France to choose from. A few years back I'd have stayed right away from anything Clarins thinking it was for ladies of an earlier generation like my Grandma would buy but I couldn't have been more wrong! Clarins have really upped their game recently and have lots of new releases I'm lusting after! 

I had tried the cleansing milk before and liked it so thought I'd pick up the full size. To me this is a safe buy product. It isn't going to dramatically change your skin care routine or miraculously improve your skin but it will help maintain it and keep it clean. Personally I like to use it when I'm tired and feeling lazy on a cotton pad. Ill firstly use my Bioderma with a cotton pad and then this to make sure everything's off. I use it on those evenings I don't want to be fussing with facial washes but still want to feel clean. If I had to describe it in one word it would actually be 'clean.' I usually avoid strong scented products as they tend to sting and dry out my already dry skin however this doesn't seem to affect it. I don't love nor hate the smell, its refreshing and relaxing but I can see how some people may not be a fan.

Here is an interesting tip for you all Clarins have actually advised you use it by warming it between your fingers and then pressing it onto your skin to form a suction action for 5-10 minutes which will dislodge any dirt and black heads. I'm yet to try this tecnique but am intrigued if to see I notice any difference. Have you heard this before?! 


  1. this sounds like a good product! i havent heard that technique before!! xx


  2. My mum worked for Clarins years ago in her teens and swears by always warming it in her hands first, I think she is slightly crazy but maybe she has a point? I have never tried it if I'm honest, but I am intrigued now!

  4. completely agree, I thought clarins was something for more mature ladies until I got some of their products as a birthday gift and now I think they're fab!
