I always prefer gentle cleansers, and Stratia Velvet Cleansing Milk is no exception.
Velvet Cleansing Milk ($15) is an effective but gentle cleanser that gently removes makeup with water soluble olive oil esters.
Unlike foaming cleansers, Velvet Cleansing Milk is a non foaming cleanser that protects your skin’s natural barrier and works great as part of a double cleansing method.
Stratia Velvet Cleansing Milk
Velvet Cleansing milk is an almost creamy cleanser that protects your skin’s natural oils while still gently removing makeup dirt and grime.
Routine velvet cleansing milk use is a great addition to your skincare routine.
Key Ingredients in Velvet Cleansing Milk
This formula is wonderful with a bunch of ingredients your skin barrier will love like:
- Olive oil esters: a water soluble form of olive oil that helps get rid of makeup dirt and grime
- Oryza sativa rice bran oil: soothes and keeps your skin clean
- Matricaria recutita chamomile flower extract: soothes and keeps your skin clean
- Aloe barbadensis leaf juice (aloe vera): great for nourishing your skin
- Diazolidinyl urea and allantoin: help with hydration
- Propylene glycol: a preservative
- Cetearyl alcohol: a fatty alcohol great for skin health
Aloe barbadensis leaf juice is pretty common in skincare products, but the aqua olive oil peg is just a knockout here!
What skin types is it good for?
Since it has no essential oils or other harsh ingredients, it works for most normal to dry skin types.
The water soluble form of olive oil esters, rice bran oil, and aloe vera in the formula are so gentle that it shouldn’t irritate even acne prone skin or sensitive skin.
Velvet Cleansing Milk Reviews
Like I said, it’s a knockout. Stratia can do no wrong.
Reviews share that this gentle cleanser works well, especially if you use it to follow a makeup remover or oil cleanser.
There is rice bran oil in the formula that should help dissolve makeup, but a creamy cleanser is really never enough if you want a deep clean.
Considerations of Using Velvet Cleansing Milk
If you wear stubborn makeup, heavy makeup, or waterproof makeup, you may benefit from using an oil cleanser as a first step in your skincare routine.
This emollient cream cleanser works on light makeup and for moderately oily skin though.
It should also remove sunscreen, but you can always do a second cleanse if you prefer.
