Laneige cream skin milk oil cleanser review

Laneige cream skin milk oil cleanser reviewWhen brands produce spinoff products on one very popular product, the curiosity in me just takes over and I end up ordering it just to satisfy that craving.  Ever skin Laneige’s cream skin came out, it has been a steady cult favorite.  I have tried it myself but I didn’t find it to live up to the hype.  The product itself is decent, but definitely not up to the level of how people are bringing it up to be.  With the huge success of Laniege’s cream skin, they’ve come out with three new products including this oil cleanser, face mist, and a quick pack.  Let’s check out if the Laneige cream skin milk oil cleanser is worth the money ;).

How to use:
Pump 2-3 times to take out an adequate amount.  Gently massage the whole face with the hands.  Heavy color makeup may require extra rubbing. It is recommended that you use a lip and eye remover for tinting products and waterproof products.  Cleanse the face once again.  If you want to keep the skin better moisturized after cleansing, you can skip the double-cleansing.

Laneige cream skin milk oil cleanser reviewProduct packaging:
When you first get this baby, the pump and the bottle come separately.  You’ll have to put the pump in yourself, which I don’t really understand why you’d have to waste more packaging and plastic to do that.  The Laneige cream skin milk oil cleanser comes in a white frosted plastic bottle and a pump that is easily controllable.

Laneige cream skin milk oil cleanser texture reviewTexture/ Finish:
This is a very interesting milk oil cleanser.  It is not a straight-up oil cleanser, however, it isn’t a thin milky cleanser either.  This product falls right in between the two and it almost has a melted ice cream texture.  The description says if you have any waterproof makeup or lip tint to remove it with an oil base makeup remover beforehand.  I kind of find this to defeat the purpose of using an oil cleanser no?

Laneige cream skin milk oil cleanser reviewCleansing power:
Here we have a color concealer to the left, cream blush next to it on the right, waterproof liquid eyeliner, and waterproof mascara.  Even when I use an oil cleanser to remove my makeup right before I go into the shower, I still end up finding the need to use a q-tip and some oil-based makeup remover afterward since there is still residue.

When using any type of oil cleanser, make sure to apply it straight to a dry face so it can break down your makeup better and be stronger.  The cream products easily melted off, while the eyeliner and mascara took a lot longer and more rubbing to dissolve.  

Yea you definitely want to use a makeup remover for your mascara and waterproof eyeliners.  I do like the gentle nature of this milk oil cleanser and can see sensitive skin types liking this product.  I also didn’t find it to sting my eyes but of course, it did make my vision a little blurry but that happens with all oil cleansers.  The direction also says you don’t have to emulsify it with water after massaging, but I still tend to do it just out of habit.  It didn’t seem to emulsify either LOL, so I guess you don’t have to do that step.

-hydrating finish

Overall thoughts:
I think the concept of this milk oil cleanser hybrid is very interesting, but when it is still stuck in the milk cleanser portion in terms of functionality-wise, it’s kind of a bust.  I’m not saying this is a bad product. In fact, I do quite like this product however the situation for those who want to purchase this would be very circumstantial. Since I don’t wear makeup as often as before and usually just stick to sunscreens, this is the perfect product for me, especially since I always forget to apply the oil cleanser before stepping into the shower.  Overall I do like this product and would recommend it if you don’t wear waterproof products much or you are looking for a hydrating and gentle oil cleanser.
