Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Milk

For me, Bobbi Brown will always be a makeup range.  They have an extensive skincare offer but outside of the lip balm, I never go there. I’m not sure why so it this has been an interesting experience for me.  

The Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Milk is a light lotion.  I have been using it for the past three weeks like I would use an oil cleanser. I have been massaging it onto dry skin and wiping it off with a damp flannel.  However, Bobbi Brown recommend that you apply it to wet skin and rinse it off.  I have to say, if you are wearing a full face of slap, that is not how I would recommend that you use it.  If you are using it as a second cleanse or a morning cleanse – maybe but I would still use it on dry skin. 

The reason that I say that is because despite the light texture it is quite emollient.  The blend of avocado, chia sweet almond and jojoba oils means that you can a) get good slip on the skin and b) use it as I do to remove SPF and makeup from the skin.  

I love the fact that the plastic bottle has a pump dispenser – it makes it so much eaiser to use.  You will definitely need a couple of pumps if you are taking makeup off and or taking your cleanser down your neck as you should be doing.  The cleanser is fragrance with jasmine and lavender.  The blend creates an overall pleasant fragrance which is quite fresh.  If you have sensitive skin however you may find the lavender irritating.

It’s been a long time since I have used a cleansing milk.  Since becoming a devotee of double cleansing I tend to use an oil based product followed by a wash off cleanser.  However it has been interesing for me to return to a milk and whilstI don’t think I will stay on the cleansing milk regime, it has not been an unpleasant experience.  If you don’t like to use an oil or balm product on the skin or you are looking for a product that you can wash off without leaving the skin taut, the Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Milk is a good option.

Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Milk is available from John Lewis and other authorised stockists and is priced at £32.00.
