Hello. It's been a while. The little one's eat and sleep pattern is still chaotic and I'm struggling just to keep up with him =.= But I haven't gone anywhere, quite literally. Ha.
Anyway, I'll be posting on a couple of items I used up over the past few weeks, starting with this tiny 5mL/0.17fl. oz. sample tube of Ren Hydra-Calm Cleansing Milk that lasted me all of three uses. I've had this tube for a while so it's no longer available, having been reformulated and renamed as Evercalm Gentle Cleansing Milk. I haven't tried the new formulation yet.
This was called a cleansing milk but it wasn't a milk at all. Instead, it was a cleansing cream, at least it looked, felt, and rinsed like one. After rinsing, it left a thick and greasy film on my face as if I'd just slathered on olive oil. The current formulation retails for $28/150mL tube so I'm assuming this old version wasn't that much cheaper. Given that it wasn't any better, or even different, than a generic cold cream, I'd say go for the cold cream since a big tub of that would only set you back a few bucks.
This cleansing "milk" had a calming herbal scent. I thought I'd smelled chamomile and sure enough, chamomile flower water is the first ingredient! The current formulation is completely different though so I don't know if it has the same scent.
