There are plenty of ways to wash your face these days, whether you’re into cleansing oils, foaming face washes, or cream formulas. However, milk cleansers are the cool newcomer to the cleansing arena, touted for their non-drying and extra gentle formulas that are well-suited for those of us with sensitive and reactive skin.

Milk cleansers are made from an emulsion of water and fats, allowing you to cleanse your skin to get rid of impurities, excess sebum, and even makeup without leaving your skin feeling dry, irritated and uncomfortably tight. Basically, they’re able to wash our faces and rinse away dirt, grime, and other blemish-causing impurities, all without stripping our skin of its natural oils, which is paramount for those with chronically dry skin, eczema, and other skin conditions.

Many milky formulas also offer skin-soothing properties, leaving a refreshing, cooling effect on the skin post-application, which is great for those who suffer from redness and blotches of discoloration.
