Beauty: First Aid Beauty Milk Oil Conditioning Cleansing Milk

I tried First Aid Beauty a couple of months ago now, and so far have been super impressed with the brand.

I find their products perfect for my sensitive skin, as they not overly fragranced. I particularly enjoy using their Facial Radiance Pads every morning,  review here

First Aid Beauty Milk Oil Conditioning Cleansing Milk is housed in a tall plastic bottle, with a pump to dispense the milk.  It is a silky white fluid, that claims to take the "tug and pull" action out of make-up removal, and bring back the nourishing and conditioning side of cleansing.
It claims to remove all traces of stubborn make-up, whilst nourishing and conditioning the skin.

I have been using this for 2 weeks, and after using it the first time of an evening, I switched it and I started using it as my morning cleanser. For me, the texture wasn't thick or robust enough for a night-time cleanser.

I prefer cleansers that have thick, creamy, or oily textures, for example: Clarins Gel Melt Cleanser, The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter, Or Emma Hardies Cleansing Balm. I wear long-wear foundations like Estee Lauder Double Wear and Lancome Visionnaire and I need a cleanser that can break down these products. This First Aid Beauty cleansing milk disappears when it touches the skin, I don't feel, or see any oil as described. I was expecting when the water was mixed with the milk, for an thickish oil to form, and this would help, and contribute to breaking down the make-up. (Similar to Clarins Gel Melt). It never.

I can't see how it would remove stubborn make-up. I have used a little and a lot, and the product just seems to sink into the skin. So yes the conditioning and nourishing, and no tug or pull factor is a thumbs up, but for me the product does not hang around long enough to remove, or break-down stubborn make-up.

On the positive side the product isn't overly fragranced, and feels light, cooling and refreshing on the skin.
I am enjoying using it of a morning, but would I repurchase?
I do not think so.
I don't usually spend that much on my morning cleanser, as all I am after is a light milk cleanser, to remove any residue or dirt that has built up over the night, and the likes of Loreal do amazing ones, at a fraction of the price.

It isn't the product I expected, and priced at £19.50, well I would rather invest in my trusty Clarins Gel Melt Cleanser.

Have you tried anything from First Aid Beauty?  What are your current favourite cleansers?



  1. Cleansing milk is still fairly new to me, if I'm honest, and I'm not 100% sure how I feel about it yet. £19.50 sounds a little steep for this in my opinion! It definitely sounds like it is worth a cheaper price.

    1. Yes I think the price is what made swung it for me too, if it was cheaper, I would happily use it as my morning cleanser. x

  2. I've tried a few F.A.B products and I can't say I've been wowed by any of them even though they are so overhyped! I love The Body Shop's cleansers xx
