You can add Soap & Glory Peaches And Clean Deep Cleansing Milk ($12) to my love to hate list. I love this facial cleanser with a passion. Not only does it smell like just picked peaches, not a generic sweet, fruity scent but a true peach scent, but it also melts away dirt and makeup easily.
I hate it because…
You can’t use it near your eyes. WHY damn you WHY!? I don’t know about you but I simply cannot wash my face without getting cleanser near my eyes. Actually, I rely on my cleanser to remove anything that my favorite eye makeup remover didn’t get off. So, when you create a facial cleanser that says, “Avoid Contact with Eyes”, I feel rather confined. I mean, in all seriousness, I find it difficult to avoid my eyes when washing my face.
On that ranting note, I will say that I simply adore Soap & Glory Peaches And Clean Deep Cleansing Milk otherwise! Soap & Glory calls it a 4-in-1 formula that purifies, clarifies, invigorates, softens, and melts away makeup. I dunno if it does all that but it does remove makeup mighty easily.
This has a lovely fuzzy peach scent that isn’t too sweet nor too juicy. It reminds me of a real peach, perhaps one that isn’t quite ripe yet as it has the earthy green note peaches sometimes have when they haven’t fully ripened. It’s quite a lovely fragrance and subtle to my nose but might not be a great pick for sensitive users.
I don’t really love cleansing milks. They are pretty big in Japan but I tend to favor collagen washes, cleansing oils, or cleansing balms. But this formula I make an exception for. It’s a very thick, creamy consistency which you massage onto dry skin much like a cold cream. It does have a little bit of a tingle during the application but it didn’t irritate or upset my skin. I take a few minutes to gently massage it in and rinse it off with lukewarm water. It breaks down easily enough but doesn’t emulsify or go milky during removal. You can use a wet wash cloth to remove it as well if you like. Soap & Glory claims it leaves behind a smooth, luminous complexion and I couldn’t agree more. My skin is prone to being rather dull but after washing with this my complexion looks quite bright, rosy, and squeaky clean. It is a little bit drying and leaves my skin tight after rinsing but nothing that a little moisturizer doesn’t help. As recommended, avoid getting in your eyes as it does sting badly!
Soap & Glory Peaches And Clean Deep Cleansing Milk is a delightful way to cleanse skin but it is rather unfortunate it can’t be used around your eye!
