France is known for many things and luxury skincare is one of them. Collosol Water milk cleanser is a cult classic among many and it’s finally available in the UK. I had never heard of this brand but I was very excited when I saw it on the gram many months ago. I was sent one for review and I decided to test it out straight away.
Collosol Eau De Lait (water milk) cleanser gently cleanses and removes makeup. It promises velvet and smooth skin with no oily residue. It also promises the benefits of a cleansing milk and micellar water to leave the skin comfortable, purified and moisturised. There’s no need to rinse afterwards
I received the 100ml size of the cleanser and used it every night as a 1st cleanser. It lasted just over a week. I experienced no irritation from the cleanser. The scent is a delicate powdery scent, whilst it’s very pleasant, the scent is potent and lingers. The texture of this is literally like water. I did see some sold particles but it’s nothing that scratched my skin or anything.
The Water milk feels extremely gentle on the skin and I am very impressed on how effective it is at cleansing the skin. It removes makeup, dirt and grime easily without stripping my skin. I have used this with cotton pads and my makeup remover cloth but I prefer the cotton pads as it’s much easier to use. Whilst they say there is no need to rinse afterwards, I do always go in with a second cleanse in my PM routine. This rinses away clean, not that it leaves a residue on the skin anyway.
Is the Collosol Water Milk effective? Yes! This cleanser is very effective against makeup and daily dirt and grime. The cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and not stripped. I did really like this as a 1st cleanser in my routine. Collosol has a strong powdery scent. It’s pleasant but if you don’t like fragrance in you products you may not like this one. The packaging makes this easy to use.
If balms/oils are not your thing, this is a very good alternative for a first cleanser. It’s very similar to a micellar water but provides better cleansing than some micellar waters on the market.
Collosol Eau De Lait 100ml is £9.50 on Feelunique
