I love Soap and Glory bath and body products, but I have only recently discovered their skincare range.
Amongst the face creams and serums is their '4in1' cleansing milk, which is whimsically titled Peaches and Clean. The play on words, and funny anecdotes across the packaging are marks of the Soap and Glory brand, which can be found on the rest of their products.
Aside from making me chuckle, the cleansing milk looks pretty on your bathroom shelf with it's 1950's-style design and large typography.
Moving on from the the aesthetic value, I found the cleansing milk a good alternative to my usual make up remover. Firstly the emulsion comes out (via a pump), like a face cream, which then turns to a lotion, then a milky texture once on your warm skin.
It doesn't state how long to leave the 'milk' on your face for on the back of the bottle, but I left it 'on' for about two minutes, which is when it has turned from a lotion like texture, to a transparent milk.
I was initially wary of Soap and Glory's skincare products because although the body range is great they are usually heavily-perfumed and non-organic. With sensitive skin I have to be careful because I can can have an allergic reaction to rich, scented products, but surprisingly the cleansing milk did nothing but cleanse, soften, and lightly perfume my skin with jojoba and peach.
On the back of the bottle you'll see they use a number of natural ingredients, which adds to the sweet but not overpoweringly sugary scent.
You'll also see stated a few less-known phrases as opposed to actual ingredients. Their copyrighted 'poreshrink' for example, works like a Clinique pore-minimising product, so your pores are less pronounced, and a smoother base makes your make up application much easier.
You can also wash the milk off with hot water, and dry your face with a towel, but for a more thorough cleanse, and if you're wearing heavy makeup I do two things: apply the milk to my face, leave for two minutes, and remove using cotton wool which is damp with warm water. I then repeat the application of cleansing milk, and this time, I run a flannel under hot water and scrub off my make up. Thankfully, after the second step (they advise a second step if you think it's necessary), barely any make up comes off because the first step is so cleansing, but I like to make sure.
I guess it really is a '4in1' product. Cleansing, softening, pore-minimising, and moisturising Peaches and Clean seems to do it all; Soap and Glory by name, hope and glory by nature.
