We all know the importance of a good cleanser and that it is the key to great skin. My skin care routine is pretty basic and I don’t use a ton of products but I am quite fussy when it comes to removing makeup and cleaning my face. I try and follow the Korean method of double cleansing i.e using a cream or oil cleanser first followed by a water-based cleanser. I have been using the new Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk For Normal Skin for a couple of weeks now and in this post, will share my thoughts on the product.
About Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk
The gentle Activ range cleanser comes in 3 variants for each skin type – normal skin, oily skin and dry skin. The exclusive range is enriched with minerals and provitamin B5 which soothes and removes excess oil without tightening or over drying. The cleansers are SLES, paraben and alcohol free which make it super gentle for your skin.
Price – Rs 1195 (100 ml)
The packaging is sturdy but it is too bulky. It is a glass bottle and quite a heavy one. The product is milky-white in color and has a medium consistency. It has a soothing smell and feels quite mild on the skin. You are supposed to massage the cleanser into the skin for about a minute to dissolve the makeup and grime and then wipe it off with a moist cotton pad. I’ve also applied the product on the cotton pad and used it to cleanse my skin directly but it is not as effective as massaging into the skin first.
The cleanser does not remove heavy eye makeup that well but it does a good job in removing dirt, grime, oil and makeup from the face and neck. To ensure that my skin is squeaky clean, I do two rounds of the cream cleanser followed by a foaming soap-free face wash.
I quite like this product. It cleanses well without making the skin dry and it is also free from SLES, parabens and alcohol. The price is too high though for a cleansing milk and I would have liked it to be in the Rs 700-800 range.
