I really am quite shocked at this, readers.
I purchased Soap and Glory’s Peaches & Clean Deep Cleansing Milk back in March-ish. The remnants of the bottle lasted into October, which making it a solid 7 months that my bottle lasted. I started it off using once daily but eventually it became twice daily – half a pump in the morning and up to two pumps in the evening depending on any/how much makeup I wore that day. Now it’s the one I reach for most if there’s been something on my face at all.
I really like the creamy consistency and that fact that it really does take my makeup off pretty well, even thick foundations and all of my liquid lipsticks. Granted, it takes a little bit of effort with the liquid lippies, but I’m still pretty impressed. It stings quite a bit if I get it into my eyes, but it also removes eye product super easily – so I am just really careful when I use it there. If anything, I go back over with micellar gel if there’s stuff left. It’s also not drying in the slightest.
It smells very clearly of peaches, so if that’s an issue for sensitive skinned/nosed peeps then I would be cautious. However, it is a pleasant sweet, not overpowering smell that doesn’t linger much at all when I am using it.
Here are the ingredients (from the S&G website):
Water, Isohexadecane, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cyclohexasiloxane, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Sodium Polyacrylate, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Benzoate, Dipropylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Quillaja Saponaria Bark Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Lycium Barbarum Fruit Extract, Parfum (Fragrance), Tetrasodium EDTA, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Prunus Persica (Peach) Fruit Extract, Glucosamine HCl, Urea, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract, Algae Extract, Sorbitol, Salvia Hispanica Seed Oil, Gynostemma Pentaphyllum Leaf Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Linalool, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Ascorbic Acid.
Here’s the link to the CosDNA page for this. I don’t have any sensitivities to any of these that I’m aware of, but you might be concerned with the fragrance, cetearyl alcohol, or any of the oils if you are sensitive to them.
It’s in a pump bottle with a twist locking mechanism so it won’t accidentally pump, which makes it so easy to quickly use in the mornings. However, I found that close to the bottom, the pump sometimes didn’t pick up product so I had to decant it into a smaller bottle and wash out the main bottle using the leftover as a body wash. I can’t say I’m happy about having to do that as the cleansing milk isn’t very fluid so I couldn’t just tip it all out.
It’s £8 from Boots for 200ml, which I think is great as it has lasted so long. For the price I really do think I have gotten my money’s worth from it. I’d definitely recommend this as a cleansing option to give a try.
