When Glossier was first launched a few years back, I’m not going to lie – I thought it would be a whole load of hype – not that it stopped me from ordering a couple of products. Fast forward to today, and I’m an out and out Glossier Gal. I’m not going to lie – I love everything about the brand, from the chic aesthetic through to their skin-first philosophy, and I use at least three of their products daily. The newest addition to my collection is the new Milky Oil Cleanser which combines the properties of Micellar Water and Oil for the ultimate in cleansing perfection.
It’s a bi-phase formula which needs to be shaken before using, and I simply use a few drops of the formula on my fingertips to work into eyelashes and lips to get rid of any mascara or lipstick, then follow with my regular cleanser. It can even be used with a Q Tip as a makeup eraser, to make sure your eyeliner and lipstick application is 100%.
I love how effective yet gentle the Milky Oil is. Even when I’m wearing my most intense mascaras, which take a good few minutes of removing, just melt away when I pat some of the Milky Oil onto them. You can even apply the formula to lips and eyes direct from the bottle, thanks to the spout, which keeps the formula exactly where you want it, and I’m not left with wasted remover streaming down my face.
Once the Milky Oil has gotten to work, I simply wipe it away with a warm, damp flannel and I’m left with skin which is both soft and completely clean. Since I like a thorough cleanse, I follow it up with my usual foaming cleanser, but if you’re in a rush, it would be absolutely fine to stop with the Milky Oil. If, like me, you can look a little pink post cleanse (thanks sensitive skin) Glossier have you covered – Milky Oil has Comfrey Root Extract and Pro-Vitamin B5 condition which soothe and smooth skin, so not only is it clean, it’s calmed too!
Glossier Milky Oil Cleanser is priced at £10 and is available here.
