Alorée Sweet Purifying Cleansing Milk

J’Adore: The Sweet Purifier Cleansing Milk by Alorée

May 28, 2013

Is it possible to become addicted to your cleanser? Because I would say that I’m addicted to my cleanser. Like crazy.

I’ve gone through a lot of cleansers before. So when I say that Alorée’s Sweet Purifier Cleansing Milk is by far my favorite, I am not exaggerating. After that horrible experience I had with the Alorée CC Cream Second Life, I’m so happy to shed a positive light on a different Alorée product.

This cleansing milk proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Alorée truly is a top notch skincare brand.

Alorée, Le Safe Spirit

Alorée is a young and promising organic french skincare brand.

The brand launched in 2011 during the Beyond Beauty Expo in Paris. That year, Alorée won the Beauty Organic Award for its innovative use of chlorophyll as an active ingredient in its products.

The main active ingredients in Alorée products are in fact a complex of anti-oxidants, which includes chlorophyll, polyphenols, oligo-elements and omega-3. These ingredients work to slow down signs of aging by reducing the level of intracellular oxidation induced by UVB rays. In short, the anti-oxidant complex of ingredients help to boost cellular metabolism and oxygenation in the skin.

Abiding by “Le Safe Spirit”, Alorée products are made with a high content of natural ingredients. They are free of preservatives and synthetic perfumes and are therefore suitable for even the most sensitive of skin types.

The Sweetest Cleanser, Ever

The Sweet Purifier Cleansing Milk by Alorée gently removes makeup and impurities from the skin’s surface. At the same time, the main active ingredients work to oxygenate and detoxify the skin. It is suitable for all skin types, especially for normal to dry skin.

How To Use It: You can apply this directly on your face or with a cotton pad, then rinse with water. It’s gentle enough to use for both mornings and evenings.

My Experience:

Let me tell you! I have been using this cleanser for a month. And oh my goodness, I am positively addicted to it!

I think it’s mainly the scent that I’m addicted to. To me, the scent is so sweet to the point that it’s intoxicating. It’s a very natural scent actually, like green apples. And whenever I catch a whiff of it, I want to run to the bathroom and wash my face!

I also really love the soft, milky texture of this cleanser. When I apply it to my face, it feels incredibly soothing. I don’t hesitate to use this over my eyes, as it never stings. This cleanser also works well with my Clarisonic.

But what I really love to do is to give my face a massage with this cleanser. I swear I was lost in the bathroom for what seemed like hours, just enjoying the scent and the feel of this cleanser while massaging my face!! Okay, granted, this was while I was in Amsterdam and I may have been under the influence of a few things…

Really though. This cleanser always makes me want to take my time and give my face a therapeutic cleansing massage.

By the way, if you don’t know about the benefits of massaging your face or you don’t know how to go about giving your face a massage, I highly recommend watching this DIY Face Massage video by Kristen, an esthetician and founder of Holistic Vanity skincare.

The Results: Clean, soft and pampered skin. Howerver, this is not the most powerful of cleansers. So whenever I wear makeup, the only way I feel like my skin is sufficiently clean is if I use a l’Eau Micellaire beforehand.

What I like about Alorée’s Sweet Purifier Cleansing Milk:
– The sweet, intoxicating scent!
– The gentle, milky texture
– Feels very soft and soothing on my skin
– Does not sting, gentle enough to use on my eyes
– Effective at removing light makeup
– Natural and organic ingredients
– Oxygenating properties of chlorophyll

What I don’t like about it:
– I can’t rely on this cleanser alone. I usually have to use it with a l’Eau Micellaire beforehand. Or in conjunction with my Clarisonic brush.

How Much: €16 for 125 ml at Mademoiselle Bio

Would I Buy It Again: Yes, yes, yes! A thousand times YES!!! I don’t know what I’m going to do when I get back to the U.S. and will no longer be able to find this cleanser (T_T)

Concluding Thoughts

For such a gentle cleanser, I’m rather surprised at how well the Alorée Cleansing Milk works at removing makeup. But if you tend to wear heavy stubborn makeup everyday, it’s best to use this cleanser with another makeup remover.

I would highly recommend Alorée’s Cleansing Milk if your skin tends to become inflamed and irritated. This cleanser will gently clean your skin while giving you a sweet and soothing experience!
