Review | Barefoot Botanicals Rosa Fina Cleansing Milk

Rosa Fina Nourishing Cleansing Milk* has been my cleanser of choice lately. Its from Barefoot Botanicals Rosa Fina range and covers a whole host of skin concerns..

Combination | sensitive | blemished | fine lines | wrinkles | mature | scarred | rosacea | oily | acne.

Nourishing Cleansing Milk* 125ml £20.95

 I had been using  the Rosa Fina Face & Decolletage oil* and loved the results so Lindsay kindly offered to send me a few more products from the range to try. The cleansing milk couldnt have come at a better time, my skin has been playing me up something shocking and cream cleansers were starting to feel a bit too much but face washes were far too stripping and causing my already inflamed cheek to become even more inflamed.

'Cleansing Milk' always makes me imagine a really thin, runny, milky  liquid but this is more of a creamy lotion that isnt going to spill everywhere or run down your arms. On contact with the skin it has a lovely cooling effect an instantly makes you feel clean and refreshed. You apply it to dry skin, massage it in then remove, and as usual I use a muslin cloth or mitt. It removes mascara so easily (not sure about waterproof mascara though, I never wear it) and leaves your face feeling really soft and smooth.

The packaging is an almost rubbery plastic tube with a pump so you never pour out too much product. Rosa Fina Nourishing Cleansing Milk contains rosa mosqueta oil with a complex of detoxifying herbs, Witch hazel and aloe vera.

I love cream cleansers but almost all of them leave a film over the skin and I'm a bit funny about not removing it properly. I end up going over and over my face with a muslin cloth untill I'm sure every trace of cleanser has gone but then that just irritates my skin even more. With this cleansing milk I only have to go over my face twice so thats definitely a bonus.

Rosa Fina Nourishing Cleansing Milk can be purchased from the Barefoot Botanicals website link.
