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