Dude, winter is obviously setting in because I’m sporting seriously patchy dry cheeks today. Not pretty, not too pretty at all! Tonight I’m taking DHC Olive Virgin Oil and pouring it all over my face, they recommend one or two drops but this is an emergency, bring on the entire bottle!
Speaking of more moisture the new Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser promises a hydrating cleansing experience.
Does it work?
A foaming cream cleanser to remove face and eye makeup with a formula that’s rich in lactose and essential amoinoacids.
This is a cream cleanser but I don’t get much of a foam from it to be honest and it has more of a Philosophy Purity effect on my face. I’m not seeing major lather but it still does the trick at removing makeup rather quickly and really works fab with my Clarisonic in the shower in the morning since it has a thicker gel-like formula that works well with the brush!
Formula feels very mild to me and considering my skin is already dry as is it doesn’t leave me feeling drier, tighter, or itchy. It has a nice glide on my face and feels quite moisturizing and hydrating however long term results after you’ve rinsed and dried off aren’t really there so due follow up with a moisturizer.
I always find most Korres cleansers are really gentle without stripping my skin. The milk proteins consist of lactose and essential aminoacids in the formula which form a hydrating layer on my skin however like I said I don’t notice that my skin is extra moisturized after use, just normally soft without being tighter.
This has a nice smell as well which I can’t put my finger on somewhat like milk and honey and in other aspects a little bit Lush snow-cakey….
Although Korres says you can remove both face and eye makeup with it, I’d personally stick to face and use an oil based eye makeup remover prior to your full cleanse. I recommend this with most cleansers that sport the dual face and eye remover claim as I personally wear alot of eye makeup and don’t feel most cleansers do the trick at getting it ALL off. If you use considerably less or lighter eye makeup than by all means use this to multitask your clean but if you’re like me you might want to invest the time in an oil based remover prior to following up with the cleanser.
- Anyone looking for a good cleanser to use with a cleansing brush (I find this works a treat with my Clarisonic).
- Anyone seeking a mild cleanser that will remove makeup without making skin dry or tight after use.
- Fans of Korres cleansers in general will enjoy this!
- Those seeking a cleanser to remove hardcore face and eye makeup (I didn’t feel like this would go to town on heavy eyeshadow and/or waterproof liners or mascara).
If you’re looking for a gentle cleanser that won’t strip your skin, Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser will do the trick. I also think it works great when paired up with a Clarisonic particularly if you’re enjoying the cleansers that came with the brush already as this has a similar feel and texture. If you’re a fond fan of Korres Cleansers in general this will be one to try and those new to the brand might wish to take advantage as well to get a feel for their cleansers.
