I’m always looking around for new cleansers and toners that work perfect together, and in a pervious post I mentioned there are two that work in perfect harmony with each other. Today I bring to you, the Clarins Cleansing Milk and Toning Lotion. These two little gems are very affordable and effective when it comes to the basics of your skincare routine and can be combined with many products. The good thing about these two is that they are suitable for most skin types, especially aimed towards people with combination/oily skin.
Lets start with the cleanser. The cleansing milk has a really light texture, that when mixed with water turns into a really soothing cream. Simply put some of the cleanser onto damp hands then massage into the face, wet your hands a little more and massage again until it emulsifies. Containing rich plant extracts and essentials oils, dermatologists all over the world are raving about this very easy to use and calming cleanser. I really enjoy using this product as it doesn’t leave your skin feeling stripped or dry after use. It really reminds me of a babies body lotion as it gives you a baby skin result. The solution also contains sage, known to calm and balance out oils, really helpful to people with oily prone skin.
Next is the toning lotion. Again containing sage extracts and iris, this formula soothes and tightens pores without irritation or redness. Being alcohol free, this stops it drying out your skin leaving it flaky, instead leaving it nourished and radiant. This toner is by far one of my favourites.
I have to say the only let down for the two products is the packaging, although it looks very appealing and clinical (something I love in a skincare product), the holes where the solutions come out of are a little tricky to use. The cleanser has a valve type where it makes it hard to control how much comes out on your hand, and the toner hole is very big meaning you end up using lots more on your pad. However it’s the actual product that your buying and for me its A*.
