Cleansing Gel or Cleansing Milk?

The first step in a skincare routine, it's not easy to find the facial cleanser formula that suits your skin. Indeed, there are many forms of facial cleansers on the market. However, they all have the same function: to remove impurities that have settled on the skin throughout the day. Cleansing milk and gel are among the solutions offered. But then, which one to choose between the two?

Gel or milk, which facial cleanser should you choose?

Both of these formulas are beneficial for the skin. The choice will depend on the texture, as well as your skin type:

  • Based on the texture:

    The cleansing milk is a creamy textured emulsion, meaning it consists of an oily phase to dissolve oily impurities and an aqueous phase to limit the greasy effect often left on the skin by creamy cleansers, while the cleansing gel is primarily composed of an aqueous phase. The impressions they leave on the skin are therefore completely different. The richer formula of the milk offers a balance between effective skin cleansing and immediate comfort. It thus provides a soft touch, while protecting it from external discomforts. The foaming gel, on the other hand, purifies the skin with an immediate sensation of freshness and lightness, leaving the skin clear and clean.

  • Depending on the skin type:

    Gel-textured cleansers are often perceived as the preferred treatment for combination to oily skin (+) and skin prone to blemishes. They help to dislodge impurities and unclog pores, providing a sensation of freshness and cleanliness. However, if you have normal, sensitive, dry, or mature skin, the choice of a cleansing milk is recommended. This will help you gently purify your epidermis while intensely hydrating it thanks to its composition.

The various facial cleansers that we offer.

Gel, milk... we have developed a selection of facial cleansers with different textures for each skin type, suitable for daily use, morning and evening.

  • Exfoliating Cleansing Gel : This foaming gel is part of our Iconicrange. It is a micro-exfoliant that can be used daily or occasionally for deep cleansing. It helps to prevent and correct blemishes without damaging the skin barrier, thanks to the numerous active ingredients it contains. The skin texture is then smoothed and refined, the complexion regains its radiance, and the skin is soft and even. Sulfate-free, the melting gel texture transforms into a light and airy foam upon contact with water, thanks to its gentle and plant-based surfactants (coco-glucoside and coco-betaine).

    This facial cleanser contains gluconolactone (PHA) to gently and gradually exfoliate, unclog pores while stimulating cell renewal, aloe vera (INCI name: Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder) which provides the skin with essential vitamins, amino acids, and minerals that promote skin regeneration, in addition to providing long-lasting skin soothing, inulin to rebalance the microbiome, and sweet orange essential oil (INCI name: Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil) to combat the bacteria responsible for blemishes.

  • Purifying Cleansing Gel : For deeply purified skin, you can rely on the purifying gel to cleanse the skin without assaulting or drying it out, thus not triggering the secretion of sebum. Thanks to its composition combining bamboo extract (INCI name: Phyllostachys Bambusoides Extract) and zinc PCA, this cleanser aims more to regulate excess sebum to reduce the skin's shiny appearance, and to unclog and tighten pores, both of which can lead to imperfections. It also contains inulin to protect and balance the skin's microbiota in order to control sebum production in the long term, and eucalyptus globulus essential oil (INCI name: Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil) for its antibacterial properties and thus limit the formation of pimples.

    All our cleansing gels contain moisturizing agents such as glycerin, pentylene glycol , or sugars (glucose, sugars, fructose) to prevent the skin from drying out and becoming fragile. Otherwise, it can respond by secreting more sebum and thus contribute to the appearance of blemishes.

  • Moisturizing Cleansing Milk : With a soft and pleasant texture, this facial cleanser helps to remove impurities while moisturizing the skin and restoring the protective barrier for a smooth, soft, and hydrated complexion. Upon contact with wet skin, the milk emulsifies, creating a creamy foam. It has been formulated to respect the skin's ecosystem and is thus suitable for sensitive skin: fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, non-drying, and with a gentle cleansing base (sodium lauroyl sarcosinate). The cleansing milk containshyaluronic acid to help maintain hydration, chamomile extract to soothe irritations and reduce redness, and coconut oil to help restore the hydrolipidic film and strengthen the skin's natural hydration.
