This is a must have in my skincare list. Have been using this cleansing milk for 3 years as a make-up remover. I usually follow after this with Dr Renaud Pytogel Cleanser to double cleanse my face.

This sothy cleansing milk has the most wonderful smell on earth (smell like Oranges and grapefruits). And i only need one application to remove all of my make-up. Another wonderful thing that this cleansing milk does is it helps to soften my skin and make those stubborn blackheads on my nose easier to remove. It works great for my combination skin. Definitely an A++ product and i will keep using this. Smile

I went back to my Sothys normalizing beauty milk again since last month, after I've used another brand of cleanser for 2 months. I must say I that it's way better than other cleansing milk I have used!! The smell is soooo refreshing. Most importantly, it cleans well without drying my skin! I will repurchase it for sure, and I must keep one at home at all time. Very Happy

I have combination skin and I used to use cleansing foam to cleanse my face as I think it will be cleaner. However, it is a little bit dry especially on my cheek and I used to spread moisturizing cream immediately. However, when I tried this cleansing milk. I found that my face is moisturized and clean after using it. Moreover, the scent is really refreshing. Milk is even better than foam as i can tissue off the milk and rinse with water easily. However,it takes longer time to rinse the face after using the foam. So, I will purchase the cleansing milk again. Laughing

Just wondering if this cleansing milk is safe to use around the eyes? Is it good for sensitive skin too? Did anyone here try their other cleansing milk? It seems that they have a lot of selection here that I'm having trouble choosing the right one. Thanks! Smile

Stardustdy, Althought it stated it can remove the make-up, i ususally used it as normal cleaning. I use cleansing oil to remove the make-up when i arrival. I must use Sothys to clean again before have bathing. Laughing

this cleanser is great. mild and clean with good smell and good texture.
apart from sothys, i also tried Nuxe, Aesop, Alqvimia, burt's bee, john master's organic and aubrey.
I can say Nuxe, Alqvimia and Sothys are better choices than others (but of cause, Nuxe and alqvimia are made with more natural ingredients.

I was wondering if the cleansing milk is easy to rinse off. Does your skin feel completely clean after the rinse, or does it feel like there's some residue left over from the cleanser? I have a cleanser that does not leave me feel completely clean no matter how long I rinse with water.

Does this cleansing milk only have 3 ingredients in it? According to EDS, there're grapefruit extract, coconut oil, and lemon extract. Does the coconut oil leave any oily feel on your skin?

Nuxe's cleansing water is very gentle but I fear that it can't do a good cleaning job, I do love Nuxe's floral water.

I was using the Normalising Milk for around 6 months and it really is beautiful. That was when my skin was really sensitive. After 6 months I went for the purifying lotion and it's great too. I have oily skin but both lotions have worked pretty well for me. I do prefer the purifying though just because I break out.

Purifying lotion is the first ever facewash product that I have used for my oily/acne prone skin that does not dry the skin at all. It is beautiful. The smell is not as nice as with the normalising one but it's still very nice.

I still haven't tried this one, but I should order it. Can anyone tell me if you can put this cleanser directly on your eyes to take off the eye makeup?

This this cleanser foam a bit? With regular use, do you find that it leaves a film or moisterized feeling?

I finally ordered this cleanser and now I am ready to type up a review.

I don't like it because you can feel a film left behind as you rinse.
The smell is lemon scent, but it leans toward a lemon scent cleaning product.
The texture feels very nice, creamy and glides on very well. The rinse is awful to me. I can feel the residue left behind and it does not feel like jojoba oil left behind, but something with more staying power.

Sorry for giving a poor review if this is your favourite cleanser.

Sothys recommends that you use the lotion to remove the cleanser. I do love the cleanser but it's too pricey to use on a regular basis - not to mention full of chemicals.

I found that a warm face towel to take the cleanser off worked well, with or without the use of the toner.

Their moisturisers are lovely. My favourite is the Oxyliance one.
