Dr Loretta's Lavender Milk Cleanser

Rehydrate and cleanse normal to dry skin Lavender Milk is a super-hydrating and calming tissue-off way to avoid using water when you wash your very dry or sensitive skin. This is a wonderful alternative for people who use hard water (to avoid getting this on your delicate facial skin!).

A great makeup remover for even waterproof eyeliner and mascara. This product is formulated with Vitamin E, Lavender Essential Oil and Aloe Vera to soothe skin while replenishing moisture. Designed for use with water or as a tissue-off cleanser. Formulated for dry, sensitive or mature skin.

Available in: 6 oz - $19

How to use: Apply small amount to clean fingertips, work into rich lather using gentle cleansing motions across face. Leave on for 30 seconds, remove with soft cloth or rinse off with water if desired

Finding a good cleanser is hard for me, because of my extremely  sensitive skin, and after being pregnant, my skin is even more less forgiving with facial products. I've found that the skincare I used to use before is no longer acceptable because my hormones are still adjusting back to the pre-pregnancy days. Dr Loretta's Lavender Cleansing Milk,  has a strong smell of lavender which I loved but worried me a bit because usually cleansers with fragrances don't mix well with my sensitive face. But I was surprised at how nicely this cleaner washed off my makeup including my mascara. It's really hard nowadays to find a cleanser that can take off eye makeup as well as foundation.  I used it with my NutraSonic Cleansing Brush, and lightly washed my face with about 2-3 pumps of the cleansing milk.  Not only did it take off my foundation but all my mascara as well, which was surprising because the only thing I've found to to take off my eye makeup is Vaseline. (I tend to wear a ton of mascara, especially water-proof)

The bottle is also a plus because it has a pump instead of a squeeze top or jar like some of my other cleansers. I find pumps work best so you're not wasting any of the product and you get exactly how much you need. After a couple nights of usage, I realized 3 pumps worked just right for getting off all my makeup.

Another thing to point out is the price, $19 for 6 fluid ounces. This bottle will easily last me a good 3 months, and under $20 for something I can use that long makes it that much more appealing. Cleansing milks in the past have left my skin feeling dry and tight, but Dr Loretta has created a cleanser that not only smells amazing but leaves my skin calm, more balanced and moisturized. I even felt afterwards a moisturizer was not necessary, something I've never said before about a face wash.

Overall, I think all skin tones will benefit from the Lavender Cleansing Milk.  The only people who might not find the Milk Cleanser is for them is people who dislike the scent of Lavender, but really who couldn't love such a beautiful smell?

Dr Loretta's Lavender Milk Cleanser is available now at Dermstore and other online retailers for $19.

  1. sounds sooo perfect except for that darn lavender, i HATE floral scents

  2. I've used the product before and the scent is very light and soothing. Not very floral at all. GREAT for winter weather and for sensitive skin types!

  3. Great article!! And amazing cleanser!! It's one of the gentlest I've ever used. My skin feels clean and soft, the scent is light and natural. I have very thin skin and it becomes irritated with too many chemicals, this cleanser is the right balance of soothing and cleansing. My face says thank you!!!
