You can either wash it off or just use a towel to wipe it off. It's your choice really.

I dampen my face and hands first. Then, I use about a quarter size amount and rub it all over my face for about two minutes. It does not foam up this way, but I have dry skin so I don't want it to. Then, I use a damp cloth to wipe it off my face.

My pores are so much smaller after using this cleanser and my skin is so much more moisturized. However, I think you are right is saying that it doesn't take off eye make very well- I have to work a it more to get it off.

I think you can use water to wash it off, the toner might not do as good as a job though. I find the cloth method works best.

I usually rinse with water then apply, then dab off with cotton pad. Sometimes, if I feel my face is extra dirty, I wash and rinse like typical face wash, dry with a towel, and apply the product like a moisturizer. Either way works great for me. I've never done it completely dry b/c I guess I felt like it wouldn't remove all the make-up. But whichever way makes your skin feel great I would say.

YOu can rinse it off with water but don't expect any lather. Personally I think it defeats the purpose as it is also a moisturizer. Just wipe off with a cotton ball/pad which will remove allthe makeup and dirt but leaves you skin feeling soft.

This product can be used with water or used as a dry cleanser. I use it every night in the shower to remove my makup and cleanse my skin. You can use it in the morning too but you don't want to wash your face too much or your skin with create an excessive amount of oil.

Make sure you are applying this to your face when it is completely dry. Applying it to a wet face makes it completely ineffective. That's the only thing I can think of that could be causing problems.

For eye makeup removal, i use a cotton pad (not a ball) which i put about a dime size of product on, then just press lightly to my eye for about 15-20 seconds. This dissolves virtually everything, then all you need to do is swipe once or twice and it's all gone :)

Make sure you're not squinting so the product can get where it needs to. Lift your eyebrows with your eyes closed and lightly rub it over your eyelash area. I usually use a little more over my eyes than the rest of my face and that's obviously the first place I wipe it off. I use Kat Von D liner and NARS waterproof mascara I haven't had any trouble getting it off. Hope this helps.

It does a fairly good job at removing make-up, but with waterproof eye-liner and mascara, it leaves a bit of make-up residue. It's great for non-waterproof make-up, and if you wash twice with the cleanser, it would probably do the trick. For waterproof make-up removal, you might want a stronger remover.

The 3 in 1 emulsion works really well for me with water proof make up. I usually use a traditional cleaner to remove heavy face make up and the like, and then I follow up with the 3 in 1 as a toner and make-up remover for my eye make up. My skin is very sensitive and most eye make-up removers dry out my skin, but not this. If you massage it in gently and remove it with a damp cloth it works like a charm. The concept isn't new though. My mom always swore by using lotion to remove tricky eye-make up. This works the same way, but it's designed specifically for this purpose.

Try the Milk Proteins 2 in 1 Cleansing Emulsion. It is so gentle on the skin and can be used with or without water. I to used the white tea cleanser and wasn't 100% satisfied because it was not a gentle as the 2 in 1. Good luck, I hope you find this product works for you. I am 35 and have been searching for about 5 years for a good cleanser for me and have never bought the same product twice...I will use this product for the rest of my life as long as they keep making it.

I really recomend the Milk Proteins 3 in 1 Cleansing Emulsion because it has been an amazing product on my skin. It doesn't use any chemicals in it and works really well as a cleanser and a makup remover. My skin is particularly irritable and I've even had allergic reactions to neutragena and utter cream all supposed to be hypo-allergenic. I haven't been able to find another product that works well and doesn't cause an allergic reaction. It's a milky fragrant-free product that can be used with water to remove makeup or dry.

I think you'll get just what you're looking for with this. it's especially nice to get the eye makeup/toning without all that alcohol in most and really aggravates the rosacea

(you might also like the milk soap for stressed skin for travel use since this is a pretty big bottle--you can use the soap for face and body and it comes in its own case so it's very handy)

I've used both and far prefer the milk to the foaming. I have sensitive but slightly oily and breakout prone skin. I find the foaming version to be a bit irritating to the skin and eyes. If you remove the creamy cleanser thoroughly with a warm, wet cloth or a Clarisonic I feel it leaves the skin very clean but never irritated. Also gentle on the eyes.

This is better, the 3-1. At least for me. The key is you don't have to get your face really wet or wet at all to use it, and water is actually hard in your skin, if your just taking off your makeup and not getting in the shower or something anyway, this is my go to product

answer 5
Personally, I love the 3 in 1 emulsion, but I don't feel like I would use it as my primary cleanser... especially not if you are prone to break outs. It just may not be enough to clear away heavy face make-up and other daily toxins. If you're looking for a cleaner I'd go with the milk protine foaming cleanser, but keep in mind that you should have a toner as part of your routine. The 3 in 1 works great as a toner and make- up remover (great for sensitive skin around eyes).

The 3 in 1 is more for dry skin and the foaming is more for combination.

If you're looking to prevent break outs, the foaming is probably best.

There is no fragrance or petrolium in this product however there are 2 parabens: propylparaben and methylparaben in this cleanser. parabens are known to be found in brest-cancer tumors but there haven't been any studies that have shown the long term affects of them over time. Therefore the cosmetics companies haven't been banned from using them as preservative to prevent fungi from growing in the product. This is a great product though and works with my extremely allergenic skin. It's great for all skin types and works like a charm but if you are concerned about parabens and you still want a cleanser you can check out Burt's Bees, Aubrey Organics or Tom's of Maine which are all paraben free skin care lines!

My guess is that it has something to do with the fact that they have recently changed the formulation of this cleanser and are still using the old exterior packaging for the new bottles.

You're right there are 2 kinds of parabens in this product however it is a very small amount because they are mostly used as preservatives to prevent fungi. Parabens have been found in breast-cancer tumors however there hasn't been testing to determine the long-term affects of paraben use. Parabens are in most cosmetics but this product is a very good cleanser and makeup remover, I really recomend it to anyone looking for a cleanser however if you are worried about the paraben content, you may want to look at products from Burt's Bees, Aubrey Organics or Tom's of Maine because these product lines are completely paraben free.
