Review: Collosol Eau de Lait – A French Milk Water Cleanser

Review: Collosol Eau de Lait – A French Milk Water Cleanser

Fresh milk, loves? Meet Collosol, a french milk makeup remover and cleanser all in one unique bottle.

I first heard about this bottle on intothegloss.com, and immediately I was intrigued. Mostly because of the texture, and that I had never tried french skincare before. After the first use, I could already see and feel a difference in my skin. It’s soft, velvety, and as smooth as a silk pillow. This milk cleanser might be the secret to bright, soft, skin.

Formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates, this cleanser is great for dry skin types. It’s also cruelty-free and vegan. My only setback on this cleanser is the strong fragrance, it’s a soft and luxurious smell, but it is very strong. If you’re sensitive to strong scents, I would steer clear of this product.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Styrene/acrylates Copolymer, Olus (Vegetable) Oil, Glycerin, Lauryl Glucoside, Polyglyceryl-2,dipolyhydroxystearate, Parfum (Fragrance), Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Acrylates/beheneth-25, methacrylate Copolymer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Glyceryl Oleate, Colophonium.

This does contain castor and vegetable oil, I wouldn’t recommend this for extremely sensitive skin types. Being someone with sensitive skin, I did test this product on my arms and neck for a few days before applying it onto my face.

The texture is just like water – no, like skim milk. It looks exactly like skim milk. It evaporates on your skin very quickly, and effectively removes makeup and any pollution your pores may have caught.

I love how quickly it absorbs into my skin, leaving it velvety soft and smooth. This is a makeup remover and cleanser all in one, and it’s like a dream.

How to use:
As a makeup remover: saturate a cotton ball or pad with Collosol and sweep it across your face in an upward motion to remove any makeup and debris.

As a cleanser: saturate a cotton ball or pad with Collosol and sweep it across your face in an upward motion to cleanse and prep your skin as the first step of your skincare routine. Can be used in the morning or night.

For your body or bath: add a bottle cap of Collosol to your bath water for velvety, soft skin.

Using a cotton pad, I added a bit more Collosol to the pad and swept it over the swatches a few times. I might swap my micellar water for this during the colder month since it’s much more hydrating for the cooler seasons.

Collosol can be purchased on rileyrose.com for $22 or on Amazon for $22 as well. I purchased the cleanser at C.O. Bigelow’s NYC store and it can also be purchased on their online store for $22.
