L’Occitane’s new Ultra Comforting Cleansing Milk doesn’t remove all of my makeup, but it’s one of the most moisturizing cleansers I’ve used in a while.
It’s no-rinse, so you can use it with or without water, and leaves a soothing, moisturizing film. I have sensitive skin, and some moisturizing cleansers I’ve used in the past left my face dry, stripped and tight. L’Occitane got the moisturization part of Cleansing Milk right because after using it my face feels incredibly moisturized and soft to the touch.
Now for the catch: it doesn’t remove all of my foundation and powder, and at $22 for a 6.7oz. bottle, it’s expensive. Because it’s not a great makeup remover, I only use it in the mornings.
I think it’s a better moisturizing cleanser than Cetaphil, but Cetaphil has it beat as far as price (an 8oz. jar of Cetaphil runs about $8) and its ability to remove makeup.
Ultra Comforting Cleansing Milk is one of four products in the Shea & Cotton skin care line, which was formulated by L’Occitane to minimize the risk of allergic reactions for folks with sensitive skin. The products contain minimal ingredients and no perfumes, alcohol, artificial colors or preservatives. L’Occitane also says they’re packaged in a special way to minimize contamination.

I love the old fashioned milky bottle (but it’s still plastic), and the fact that you don’t have to rinse it off makes it great for people sensitive to tap water (or for those who are just plain lazy, like yours truly). I applied it with my finger tips and wiped it off with a cotton pad.
Purchase Ultra Comforting Cleansing Milk at L’Occitane stores nationwide or online.
El Hub and I just got back from a nice walk around the neighborhood. We “borrowed” an orange from a neighbor’s tree, and it sure tasted good! I think I’ll be “borrowing” more oranges from their tree in the future, heh.
How’s your day been? I hope it’s been peachy.
