Clarins says, "Soothing cleansing milk lifts away make-up and impurities with spa-like efficiency. Clarins’ proprietary blend of softening and toning plant extracts — including Alpine Herbs, St. John’s Wort, Sweet Almond, Marshmallow and Linden — helps maintain skin’s perfect moisture balance for optimum comfort and radiance. Leaves skin feeling soft, supple and perfectly refreshed."
I really like the packaging that this comes in. It is very sheek looking and looks great in my medicine cabinet. It's also great because you can see how much you've used up. I always hate packaging that you can't tell how much is left. The packaging also allows you to get out the right amount of product. Some cleansers pour out too much product which I hate. You get 7 oz. or 200 ml of product for $30. I think that Clarins products are more reasonably priced for high end skincare. Sephora describes this "as a botanical-based, balancing lotion-textured cleanser." They say it is designed for, "dry-to-normal skin types, this daily-use cleanser leaves skin feeling fresh and comfortable. It naturally sets the stage for a healthy, beautiful complexion." I find that all Clarins product do have some type of a fragrance. If you prefer skincare without fragrances I would go toward more natural lines like Boscia or Caudalie. I don't really mind the scent, it isn't too overpowering but is definitely there.

How Clarins Suggests Using It
Morning and evening, apply following Clarins gentle cleansing method. Warm Cleansing Milk to skin temperature in the palms of the hands. Apply by gently placing the flats of the hands over the face. Hold for several seconds without pressing. Briskly lift the hands off the face. Repeat 5-6 times, including on the neck: the milk will gradually thicken and create a suction effect to lift off make-up and impurities without irritating or pulling the skin. Rinse with water or remove with a tissue. Follow with Clarins Toning Lotion.
