All you need to know about Cosrx Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel

We’ve all been waiting for this one and it’s finally out and available in Switzerland now. Here’s all you need to know about this new baby.

What it is

As the name gives away, this is a cleanser that is supposed to be used as the first step of cleansing. Cosrx designed this  low pH cleanser for those who have extremely sensitive skin and don’t tolerate cleansing balms or cleansing oils. The consistency is milky and jelly and doesn’t foam up.

Who is it for?

If you wear suncreen on a daily basis (which we by all means hope you do) and/or BB creams and basic (face) make-up, this is enough to melt away everything. However, if you are a full face make-up gal/boy, the Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel alone might not be enough to melt away your full-coverage-foundation, heavy concealer, eye shadow, mascara etc. in the first step like cleansing balms and cleansing oils usually do. In this case, we recomment using a make-up remover first. Shortly, this is for you if:

  • you have very sensitive skin
  • you are looking for a gentle cleanser with a low pH
  • you can’t use cleansing oils or cleansing balms
  • you feel dryness or your skin feels irritated after a cleansing water
  • you wear sunscreen and basic make-up like BB creams, cushions and light foundations that need to be removed

Do I need a cleanser afterwards?

Double-cleansing is highly recommended in any case to completely get rid of all that gunk. As mentioned above, the Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel is a first-step cleanser and not a substitute for a water-based cleanser.

Can I use this on my acne-prone skin?

Yes, definitely. However, make sure to double-cleanse.

Anything else I need to know?

The Low pH First Cleansing Milk Gel doesn’t contain alcohol or sodium lauryl sulfate. However, if you are sensitive to essential oils, this cleanser contains bergamot fruit oil. Here is the full ingredient list: Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimenthicone, Dipropylene Glycol, Olive Oil PEG 7 Esters, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Caster Oil, 1,2-Hexanediol, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Arginine, Carbomer, Caprylyl Glycol, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Allantoin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Butylene Glycol, Cyclomethicone, Disodium EDTA, Carica Papaya Fruit Extract, Hamamelis Virginia (Witch Hazel) Extract

Stay glowy <3

I use the low ph milk in the morning as a first step. It’s mild and good at removing the grease and residue from the products I applied in the evening.

Had this cleanser for 3 weeks now and so far I can say it’s great if you wear light make-up and have sensitive skin but it’s not strong enough for heavy full-face make-up.

Just stumbled upon this post. Wish I read this before I tried removing my mascara with this milk. Can you recommend an oilcleanser that wont sting eyes?

Ordered this by mistake and I am so glad I did. It’s great for those BB-cream-only days

Today it’s products, not product, as I am going to tell you about two sheet masks that almost look the same, but work in ever so different ways on your skin. One is calming to your skin, the other soothing. - I know, you are thinking ‘But Virginia, that does sound so similar! How are they actually different?’. No worries, I will tell you in a minute, first I want to talk about the packaging!

I’ve told you many things about vitamin C and how marvelous it can be for our skin in terms of anti-ageing and protection from environmental influences. But do you remember that I also told you about how easily its effects are supercharged by manyfolds if you just combine it with a product containing vitamin E?
Btw. it looks and feels like pudding. It doesn’t taste like it tho. Sad life of Virginia.
