The Body Shop Cucumber Cleansing Mik

Out of a whim, I bought a cleansing milk even  if I do not have any idea what or how will I use it.  I'm used to using foaming cleansers and the only thing to blame why I got this is the cucumber.
The Body Shop Cucumber Cleansing Milk
Feel as cool as a cucumber with a cleanser that refreshes and lightly moisturises, just like our original one.  Now with Community Trade organically grown soya oil.
A beauty classic returns. This gentle cleansing milk refreshes skin as it wipes away make-up and the grime of the day.
got it for P455 at 40%

Aqua (Solvent/Diluent), Glycerin (Humectant), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Emollient), Cetyl Alcohol (Emulsifier), Stearic Acid (Emulsifier), Triethanolamine (pH Adjuster), Glycine Soja Oil (Emollient/Skin Conditioner), Benzyl Alcohol (Preservative), Lanolin (Emollient), Phenoxyethanol (Preservative), Cucumis Sativus Juice (Natural Additive), Parfum (Fragrance), Hexyl Cinnamal (Fragrance Ingredient), Geraniol (Fragrance Ingredient), Butylphenyl Methylpropional (Fragrance Ingredient), Citronellol (Fragrance Ingredient), Linalool (Fragrance Ingredient), Hydroxycitronellal (Fragrance Ingredient), Benzyl Salicylate (Fragrance Ingredient), CI 61570 (Colour), CI 19140 (Colour).
So it doesn't smell like a real cucumber.  It's more like a freshly cut grass and some may find the smell overpowering but I already got used to it and more than a month of using it, I can now smell the cucumber.  The Body Shop Cucumber Cleansing Milk has a light green shade with a lotion consistency and also feels like a lotion when applied but it's not the greasy lotion type.
very light pastel green in color
Even if it doesn't produce bubbles, this cleansing milk mildly cleanse and moisturize and freshens my face just like what it says in the description.  I use this day and night and for 7 weeks I never had a major breakout even on my red days (usually the day my huge pimples appear).

I use this by spreading around 3 pea size of the cleansing milk then massaging my face for about 5 minutes (this method is more relaxing and enjoyable) then rinse with tepid water.  Although I use a different cleanser when I wear a bb cream, it says in The Body Shop description that it can remove make-up (if used as describes from the brand's website).

Massage a small amount into skin and wipe away with a cotton wool pad. If product gets into eyes, rinse with clean water.

I used this one time as instructed when I applied a bb cream on my face.  And the result...
bb cream + dirt
So it can really remove make-up (not sure with other kinds of make-up like mascara and eyeliner) although I have to splash water after an hour because my face; although soft and feels light' is not smooth with the cleansing milk on.  I used toner in cotton pads afterwards and there's no bb cream residue left.  Mistakenly buying this is a good choice.

Thanks for reading. Till then. Bye!
