Vegan Milk Cleanser
Milk Makeup’s Vegan Milk Cleanser is a good, gentle, everyday cleanser that soothes skin as it removes debris. It’s ideal for normal to dry or combination skin. As is true for most cleansers (in all price ranges), the formula is indeed vegan as claimed.
Packaged in an opaque squeeze tube, this fragrance-free cleanser has an initially creamy feel that melts into a milk-like texture when it contacts water. It spreads across skin with ease, removing dirt, oil, and non-waterproof makeup.
This doesn’t work as well on waterproof or longwearing sunscreen formulas or makeup, though Milk doesn’t make that claim. It rinses cleanly, leaving skin feeling softer and conditioned thanks to the numerous non-fragrant plant oils it contains. Bonus: the plant oils help alleviate mild flakiness and prevent a dry, tight feeling.
This cleanser is certainly set up to soothe and cushion skin; in addition to the plant oils (among them grape, oat kernel, jojoba, watermelon, and argan oils), there’s also shea butter, oat extract, aloe, and sodium hyaluronate. Though rinsed, these are still thoughtful additions that make this a product suitable even for sensitive skin. Well done, Milk Makeup!

Milk Makeup At-A-Glance
Milk Makeup is one branch of the Milk media company, based in New York and Los Angeles, where creativity and innovation are at the forefront. That vision echoes throughout their skincare and makeup lines, designed to create cool, effortless looks with easy application.
Since many Milk Makeup products can be used several waysa blush is a highlighter is an eyeshadowand since even some skincare products come in solid, swipe-on formulas, their target audience is a savvy girl-on-the-go: one whos not afraid to experiment with a low maintenance, high concept look. Milk makeup was created to travel well and often, since few products come in liquid form, and all can be applied without brushes, puffs, or applicators. Not everyone's ideal makeup can be done in five minutes in the back of a cab--but if you're that girl, you're a "Milk girl."
For the most part were impressed by Milk Makeups performance, design, and vibe, but their ingredient selection isnt exactly worry-free: While Milk Makeup advertises their products as made with the best possible ingredients, many of them, unfortunately, contain irritants such as citrus oils. A multi-tasking, time-saving product isnt worth your time or money if it also exposes your skin to troublesome ingredientsalthough some Milk products fare better in this regard, so do take a peek at our reviews!
