Questions & Answers for Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser

Question
Korres Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser or Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel
I read so many good reviews about both products, but can't make up my mind in regards to which one I should get. I have been using Shiseido's Pureness line for the past 5 years or so, but now feel like it's too drying and just want to try something new. I had recently purchased Philosophy's Purity cleanser, as I have also heard good things about it, but didn't like it at all. I'm 27 yrs. old and have normal/combination skin with extremely large pores on my nose and occasional breakout on my forehead. Although I'm oily, I still feel like my skin's too dry at times.

Any suggestions anyone?

it seems like we have somewhat similar skin. i love the korres proteins foaming cleanser as well as the korres white tea cleanser, i would reccomend using the white tea in the morning to control the oil a little better and the protein cleanser at night to give your skin a little more moisture.

I would recommend you try Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser. My skin type is similar to yours and I am a very satisfied customer. There is no alcohol in the product unlike to Shiseido Pureness cleanser. And Sephora has a great return/exchange policy in case you are not happy with the results. Good Luck!

I have the same problems with my skin. Oily with occasional mild breakouts but always feels dry. The Korres 3-1 milk proteins cleanser and yougurt cream mask (used as a moisturizer, not rinsed off) saved my skin! I cannot vouch for Boscia, all I have tried is their primer, but I highly recommend Korres. This foaming cleanser is great too, but 3-1 cleanser is even more gentle because you do not have to rinse it off with water.

I have really large pores too and combination skin. I selected "dry" under my profile because my skin tends to lean that way (especially now in the winter). However, I definitely can get oily.

I was also skeptical about this cleanser, but I would definitely go for the Korres Milk cleanser. Why don't you ask for a sample at Sephora? I'm on the hunt for a moisturizer and HAAATE spending over $50 then disliking the product. Go for a sample and see how you like it that first week! :)

The cleanser is great for both sensitive and dry skin. I don't know if it would do anything to help with your acne (other than making sure you started with a thoroughly clean and not overly dry base), but I don't think it would make it worse either since it seems to do a good job of removing junk that could otherwise clog your pores

Most cleansers can dry out your skin because of the water you are washing your skin with. Best tip is to get a good moisturizer for a normal skin type and apply it while your skin is still damp from washing. Your skin should be incredibly soft afterwards!

Philosophy's Purity made me dry out sooooo bad, which is weird because my friend who has much drier skin than I loves the stuff.

Korres products work amazingly well on my combo-normal/dry skin, and this cleanser is a godsend. I would imagine on a normal skin type, it would work well. If you have large pores I would suggest a pore cleansing mask treatment no more than once a week, but other than that, I highly recommend this product!

This is a non-drying formula. I feel it is an excellent normal skin cleanser, but even the best non-drying formula can dry your skin a little if you use it with water - it's the water not the cleanser sometimes. Tissue off cleansers do not dry you out.

Hello. Yes, it did cause breakouts for my skin. My skin is VERY sensitive and highly acne prone. This caused some cystic acne and lots of little bumps all over my forehead to appear. I also started getting a couple of really itchy red rash patches. I discontinued use and my skin cleared right up and went back to normal. Since I had to return this product due to my skin reactions, I decided to try Josie Maran's Cleansing Oil...and I LOVE it! It sounds like you might have my skin type, so I would highly recommend for you to try that cleanser. It's gentle, leaves your skin feeling so soft and I haven't had any reactions or new breakouts since using it. Hope this helps you. :)

I used this cleanser for the first time last night and it did do a good job of taking my Bare Minerals waterproof mascara off. I did have to wipe under my eyes after my shower to get the little bit of mascara residue off, but that was not much effort. Boscia's Make UP Break Up is the best cleanser I have used to remove waterproof makeup. However, given the possibility of radiation on/in Japanese products due to the events in Japan earlier this year, I am giving that cleanser up.

Did they change the packaging?
I went to re-order this online, as it is not available in any of the stores near me, and the bottle is different [goes to show how long a bottle lasts... forever!!].

I just want to confirm this is in fact the same/only milk proteins cleanser Korres has and it's just that the bottle has changed. Also, if the bottle has changed, have they changed the formula at all? I have incredibly sensitive skin and hit the jackpot with this cleanser. I would hate for the formula to be different now too :(
