Question
Does this remove eye makeup?

I would't use it for that. It is not an eye make-up remover. You should get a product made special for eyes...that skin is too sensitive to use a regular cleanser on.

It doesn't do a good job of it to be honest. Purity made simple by Philosophy is the best one step cleanser out there removes waterproof eye makeup in one swipe...But, for me personally I always finish with the cleansing milk to add moisture and softness. My skin feels so much better after using it. I hope that helps, good luck!

Yes. I have been using this cleanser for about three weeks and I have been pleasantly surprised by how well it removes eye make-up. Clarins suggests using a patting/dabbing method when applying the cleansing milk. I use this method everywhere but on my eyes. I gently rub it over my eyelids to remove make-up and it works really well. There is usually a little bit of make-up left under my eyes from rubbing it around, but it easily wipes off with a tissue or cloth. This works much better to remove make-up than many other cleansers because it seems to cut right through instead of just smearing it all around. I don't need to use a separate make-up remover with this cleanser. I don't use water proof make-up, so I am not sure if it would remove that.

I only use shadow, and it does remove it. I don't use mascara, so I can't speak to how well it would work on that.

Question
Do I use it before cleanser or after?
I don't know what's the right order to use this. At night do I use it first to remove my makeup, and then use eye makeup remover, and then use cleanser? Or it's suppose to be used as a cleanser which is used after remove makeup?

I use this produce to remove my makeup. Apply with fingers then remove with cotton ball. Then eye make-up removal. Then toner. Then night cream or moisturizer.

I generally take my makeup off first with either a wipe or cold cream, then use the cleanser. It seems to take off any little bits of makeup that were left behind [no raccoon eyes in the morning!] and calm your skin from the makeup remover.

Definitely use makeup remover FIRST, then use this as your cleanser. I like to rinse it off with water, but you can also just wipe your face with a tissue.

this is a cleanser, like any cleanser... so remove your eye makeup first, then use this over your whole face. My skin is very 'normal' - so I use this creamy cleanser in fall/winter (and I use the Boscia black cleanser the rest of the year) ~ I have used this for YEARS and love it !

Do you apply this to a wet or dry face?
I know most oils you use on dry skin and then rinse whereas other traditional cleansers you wet the face first. How do you use this cleansing milk?

Apply to a dry face. Warm the product in your hands before gently pressing on your face. The milk will thicken as you press over and over. Once you have done this all over your face and neck you can remove with a cotton pad or rinse with water.

Question
Skincare
I have been using this cleansing milk for about 3 wks now. I am also using the yellow toner with the camomile in it. I looked at my skin the other day and noticed that I look really dry. Should you not use this twice a day. I love this product but I don't want to look like a dried out lobster. Any suggestions?

I have been using the cleansing milk for 20 years. Never dried out my skin. Maybe you should ease off the toner or moisturize more.

The cleansing milk and toner with chamomile should definitely not be causing you to be dry. What moisturizer do you use? The right moisturizer makes a world of difference. Try one with Hyaluronic acid in it. A great value is a drugstore brand called CeraVe they make a AM and PM moisturizer. Philosophy makes many great moisturizers too. Just a thought...good luck!

The cleanser and toner should be used twice daily, 365 days per year. This is the only effective way to remove all of the impurities from your face. The cleanser and toner do not have any drying agents in them, so they should not be drying your skin out. Be sure that you use the gentle patting/dabbing motion that is suggested by Clarins when you are applying the products. Do not rub or wipe off because this can aggravate your skin. If you are convinced that it is the cleanser and toner that are drying your skin (and not external factors such as weather), be sure to use a daytime and nighttime moisturizer. Regardless of the face products you use, moisturizing day and night are essential. Back to your dry skin, these products are designed for dry to normal skin, so they should not be drying your skin. I might add that when I was at Sephora, they happened to have a Clarin's rep there who helped me out by explaining the products really well. I told her that every time I switched facial cleansers, the skin around my cheeks would get slightly dry and red. She said that my best defense would be exfoliating 3 times per week. She was right. In spite of my hesitancy, I went a little crazy and I bought everything I needed to start taking better care of my skin. I used to just use Cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer after trying many more expensive lines that my skin didn't like. I bought the Clarins cleansing milk, toner, and the Brightening line at the same time. The line includes an exfoliator. The gentle exfoliater gets rid of all the dry, dull, dead skin cells that your cleanser and toner bring to the surface. These dry, dull, and dead skin cells may be what you are seeing on your skin. I highly recommend trying their exfoliator. After using all of these products for 3 weeks, my skin appears so much more healthy. In fact, it has made enough difference that I have even gone without my Bare Minerals make-up for a few days. The only other thing I can think of is that your skin is sensitive to one of the botanicals that is used in the products. So, my advice is if you really like this product (other than the drying effect), continue using it for about 8 weeks, but be sure to use moisturizers daily and nightly. If after 8 weeks, your skin has not adjusted or is still dry, try something else. I have tried many lines of make-up including (Philosophy, Clinique, Boscia, Murad, etc.) and Clarins now has me hooked. I hope they work out for you too.

I have been using it without the toner in order to relieve my dry skin and it has been working beautifully. However, with every use I also moisturize with "First Aid Beauty- Ultra Repair Cream" (another product sold at Sephora). Since I have been using these my dry skin has completely cleared up. The toner in addition to the cleanser may just be too harsh for you.

No, the milk is a cleanser. It should be the first step in your facial care regimen. You are supposed to follow it with a toner and then a moisturizer.

This is a terrific cleanser...creamy and soothing. I use it in the dead of winter when I feel dry and in the heat of summer if I get too much sun. It does remove my basic makeup, but if you use a waterproof mascara, this might not do it. I wear Dior Blackout mascara (not waterproof), and it does take it off.
