PRODUCT REVIEW | SKINCARE
By Huda Heidi Kattan
It’s no secret that I am huge fan of Sephora! I remember when I was in the states, long before I actually became a makeup artist, I use to spend hours every single day there instead of in school! So when I saw the cleansing milk and toner, I decided it was something I had to try.
Sephora Cleansing Milk: Here’s the deal with cleansers, it’s my firm belief that most cleansers suck! They don’t remove makeup, although they promise otherwise–most of them are too gentle or too drying and finding the right combination of one that works for your skin and feels great while using, can feel like an uphill battle sometimes! As for this cleanser, unfortunately it fell flat for me! For starters, I had to shake the bottle upside down for a while before I could get any product out and then when I did, it barely removed any of my makeup. It was almost like washing with pure water. Although I barely had any makeup on, I still had a good amount of makeup on after washing my face!
Sephora Toner: I was really hoping this toner would work for me! When it comes to toners I look for something that removes any residue/leftover makeup, leaves my skin feeling soft, doesn’t over dry, and balances the PH levels of my skin keeping me breakouts free. Again, I’m so sad, but this toner did not do anything for me either! I loaded a heavy amount of the toner on a cotton pad and it just removed the surface! I actually went over it again with my toner and it removed soooo much left over makeup!
As much as I do love Sephora and I just did a review on how awesome their nail lacquers are, this cleansing milk and toner are not on my rad list!
