A cleansing milk is a lotion-like product that doesn’t contain harsh soap, making it a gentler choice than other cleansers. It should leave skin feeling smooth and moisturized. Many cleansing milks also remove makeup. Most contain some synthetic ingredients, but plant and flower extracts are often added to help moisturize and protect the skin. Milk cleansers don’t typically lather up, and they aren’t meant to help with conditions like acne and rosacea. A cleansing milk should wash away cleanly without leaving a greasy feeling behind. If you want to use it to remove makeup, make sure it can handle what you usually wear, such as waterproof mascara. The scent should be pleasant, which can sometimes depend on the natural ingredients added to the cleansing milk.
