Soap & Glory Peaches And Clean Deep Cleansing Milk

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!

    this sounds and looks lovely but there are 2 strikes against it, avoid eyes AND leaves your skin tight and dry…I just can’t lol.
    sounds like a new L’Oreal Cleanser I’m trying out….can’t remember the exact name but it was something like anti aging, moisturizing cleanser and I bought it without reading everything on the bottle, because of course if it’s a cleanser/face wash I expect to be able to use it all over my face – eyes included.
    unfortunately, I realized before using it the sad words “avoid eyes”…what the ….well it works lovely on the rest of my face…cleanses and moisturizes so I think I’ll keep using it 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      I don’t blame you! It annoys me on so many levels that I can’t use it around my eyes! GRRR! It’s very minimal tightness thankfully and nothing a little moisturizer won’t cure but still, why do so many cleansers leave us feeling tight!! I’m so anal and read the back of cleansers because there are so many that state “avoid eyes”. It boggles my mind. How do you avoid your eyes when washing your face!? So dumb!

  • Carol G

    I agree 100%! If you can’t use it on your eyes what is the point? I always check the cleansers and if they say avoid eye area I’m like “nope”. That’s why I love oil cleansers and have switched to them exclusively. You can straight up pour it in your eyes and nothing would happen except having blurry vision for awhile afterwards, but no stinging at all and your mascara would definitely be completely gone!

    • Isabella Muse

      right? It’s annoying not to be able to use it on my eyes!

  • Ashe

    Can I say, I love this cleanser! But I have to moisturize a LOT so it gives an extra boost to my regular face moisturizer, like if I have to wash my face again after that. I find it really does get my makeup off.

    I use it around my eyes, though, but I didn’t read the directions!

    • Isabella Muse

      I do too! It does a really good job breaking down makeup! Oh be careful! It’s def not for around the eyes!

  • Megs B

    This is my holy grail nighttime cleanser. I’ve never had a problem with it stinging my eyes, but I also use a different eye makeup remover there first, so I don’t actually apply the cleanser to that area. I just rinse my eyes with the rest of my face after cleansing. I also have quite oily skin, so I have no issues with tightness or dryness after. It’s one of the only cleansers that effectively gets off all traces of makeup so I have no residue left over on my cotton pad after applying toner. And, the smell is amazing! I’m almost finished with my second giant bottle and have no desire to try anything else. Here’s hoping they never discontinue it!

  • Carrie

    I almost picked this up yesterday. Good to see it got a mostly good review from you. I will be trying it soon

  • Julie

    I’m pretty sure that it is the eucalyptus oil that is not approved for the eye area. Still love it for the face tingle…okay, speaking of love, you know that I REALLY love you, but I have to make one small complaint. Your new print format is kickin’ my eye’s ass…between the light pink titles and the light gray writing…aging eyes are not happy. Still love you, though…xoxo

    • Isabella Muse

      Sorry…!? But the actual print post and title is black so that should be ok I think? I don’t use gray in the post? Pink is used for hyperlinks only. Sorry about that Julie 🙁

  • Julie

    this print comes up black, but when the blog is delivered to my email, that’s when it is all super light. I can live with it, of course. :0)

    • Isabella Muse

      ooooo in the newsletter only?! I can fix that maybe!

  • Lydia

    I’ve been using this for YEARS and I had no idea you cannot use it on your eyes!!!? I’ve always used it on my eyes and it’s absolutely fine. Removes all my eye make up, and the rest, and I love it, so i’m shocked to know that it isn’t meant for eyes….how odd
