I’ve been searching for a facial cleanser to replace my previous not-so-natural one, and I came across this one at Ulta, Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser. The salesperson at Ulta steered me toward this brand when I told her I was looking for something more natural. Korres products typically have a whole list of things on their boxes that the product doesn’t include (like mineral oil, silicones, parabens, etc.). So when I was out shopping, I thought that was pretty encouraging and decided to give this one a try.
My criteria in a cleanser are as follows:
- Must wash off my makeup, including eye makeup
- Must not leave my skin dry and tight
- Must not burn my eyes
This cleanser does a great job in all those departments for me! It did cost more than I like to spend for a cleanser, $21. It’s a good size bottle, however, and I know it will last me for a while.
This cleans off every last bit of makeup, doesn’t leave my skin tight, and definitely doesn’t burn my eyes. I’m pretty sure I get it in my eyes on a daily basis, and it is honestly as gentle as water to them! On the bottle, it even says ‘Opthalmologically tested.’
This cleanser does contain fragrance… it smells nice, but I would prefer it to be fragrance free. Additionally, this is not in the Skin Deep or GoodGuide databases, so I don’t know what the health/hazard ratings are based upon the ingredients. When this bottle is out, I may continue to look for another cleanser that is less expensive and possibly in one of the databases so I know how safe it is.
Overall, I really do like this cleanser and feel like it is a much better option than what I was previously using. Korres is a Greek company featuring natural and/or organically certified ingredients in their products, you can read more about them at their website!
