COSRX Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel Review

It’s time for me to review the Cosrx Low PH Milk Gel Cleanser that I have been using for the last couple of weeks.

.

I was going to wait until I had used it a month before writing my review, but I think I have made my decision already. I know there are a lot of Cosrx fans waiting for this, but you might want to sit down…. it’s not good news I’m afraid.

.

Let me start by saying that Cosrx is a brand that I absolutely adore. Their minimal, no-fuss products are, for the majority, fantastic in my eyes from a performance and price point of view. It’s not often that I find a Cosrx product that I don’t love, but today is one of those days.

.

The milk gel cleanser is designed for those with sensitive skin who can’t use an oil cleanser or cleansing balm etc… please note that this is NOT a replacement for your Low PH Gel Cleanser, but to be used BEFOREHAND.

.

I would say it’s more of a white gel than a milky texture. You apply this directly to your dry face as per the product instructions and massage as you would a cleansing balm (however, Cosrx on insta have suggested it should be used on a wet face… I tried both and there is no difference🤷🏻‍♀️). You do have to use quite a bit each time as the product sinks in quite quickly, but it doesn’t emulsify that well either.

.

Now, this product does remove light make-up, but it did struggle badly in removing my full coverage foundation and mascara. Cosrx themselves have also said that this product will not remove make-up, so you will need to ensure that this is cleansed off separately beforehand.

.

For me, I wear make-up every day, so using this as part of my evening routine simply did not work (unless I want to start triple cleansing). I imagine most people will have similar situations, so please take this into account. So I switched this product into my morning routine because, you know, your girl has to double cleanse twice a day with oily skin, but unfortunately this just wasn’t enough for me 😫 I wasn’t removing the excess oils well enough like I would with an oil cleanser, and so I found my skin greasier far earlier than usual. I have therefore concluded that this is aimed more towards sensitive dry or sensitive normal skin types who don’t wear make-up. Not for me 😭😞 I wanted to love this so bad….🌸🌿😊
