Inventory#7: Cleansing Milk, Cream and Balm

Milk cleansers are the weakest and most gentle cleanser to my skin.  Often when I'm having troubles, e.g. really dry irritated flaky unhappy skin, I turn to them.  They don't remove make up very effectively, if I use them for my face make up, I need to tissue them off, and do maybe 2 rounds.

Creams, on the other hand, is slightly thicker than the milk relatives, and cleanses better, even moisturises better!  Hence I over-stocked a little and got this much...

Hera Soft Cleansing Emulsion (travel +1)
JimmBenny SPA Aquasource cleansing milk (+1)
Nivea Daily Essentials Refreshing cleansing lotion (+1)
Leader Price Lait Demaquillant au lait de figue 1 in use
CL Horse Oil Cleansing Milk (sample +2)

Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream (+1)
Skin Food Aloe Vera Cream Cleanser (+1)
Holika Holika Juicy Kawaii Kiwiade Cleansing Cream (+1)
Celdie Rosehip Cleansing Cream 1 in use
Holika Holika Daily Garden Olive Cleansing Cream (+1)
De Age Red-Addiction Control Cream (sample +1)

Boots Botanics Face Soothing Cleansing Balm (+1) 1 in use

Out of the few milks, my favourite is JimmBenny Spa Aquasource.  I have repurchased it a few times already.  Leader Price is a supermarket brand in France, my insanity drives me to purchase a few things there when I was in Paris, and this is the only thing left (I think).  Tell you more when I use it more!  Also, really looking forward to try the CL Horse Oil, as it sounds pretty weird and emollient at the same time.

Celdie is a sub-brand of Japanese pdc, which makes a lot of affordable and fun skin care available mainly in the drugstores.  I truly adore this Rosehip scent and cream texture, I'm super down when I can no longer find it in Bonjour or Sasa (local beauty stores).  I think there's still a foaming facial wash in Rosehip scent, but I have too much foams to use up... How I wish they bring this cream out again. :'(

In fact, the De Age control cream is a massage cream/mask thing, I was given a few freebies from a friend and I quite like it.  It has red beads inside that dissolves while you massage the cream on.  The cream gradually turns into an oil which you wash off and reveal brighter softer skin.  No clue where to repurchase though. :S

Finally, the 2 glass jar of Botanics cleansing balm.  I have had this since my London trip.  Almost used up 1 pot but then totally forgotten it.  There are 2 reasons, 1st being when weather is too cold (say below 15 degrees), this hardens, and is hard to get from the jar.  2nd being, Muslim cloths, the tools to work with this balm, is not available in my place.  It is just not a common item.  So when my 1st cloth is old and retired, and 2nd cloth lost; I suspended using this cleanser.  Without the right cloth this cleanser is not easy to be thoroughly washed off, and I have some pore-congestions induceds.  Now that I got a Liz Earle cloth from UK (thanks, Sam), I better hurry up and use these babies up!  ;)

Cheers :D

    1. Yes if you have days when you don't wear much make up - or use it in the morning for gentle cleansing! ;)
