Velvet Cleansing Milk


A cushiony cleanser that leaves skin clear, moisturized, and healthy.

Velvet Cleansing Milk is a moisturizing, non-foaming cleanser that gently removes makeup, dirt and grime without damaging your skin’s natural barrier. Harsh foaming cleansers can strip away your skin’s natural oils, leaving your skin feeling tight and dry. Velvet Cleansing Milk is a creamy cleanser that utilizes a water-soluble form of olive oil to gently bond to grime on your face and rinse it cleanly away.


A gentle cleanse without the tight, squeaky feeling.

A rich emulsion comes together to bring this cushiony, creamy cleanser to life.

How it works

Cleansing is one of the most important steps in any skincare routine. A good cleanser removes dirt, makeup, and residue from the surface of your skin without disrupting your skin’s natural lipid barrier.

Foaming cleansers can remove too much from your skin, leaving your face feeling dry, tight, stripped, or squeaky. They can even damage your skin barrier, leading to symptoms like dehydration, acne, and increased sensitivity.

Velvet Cleansing Milk is a rich, emollient cream cleanser that effectively removes dirt, grime, and other buildup while leaving your skin’s natural oils in place. Its cleansing power comes from Olive Oil PEG-7 Esters, a water-soluble form of olive oil that gently bonds to grime on your face and rinses cleanly away. 

Fortified with chamomile, aloe, and rice bran oil, it’s a soothing, purifying cleanser that won’t dry out your skin or leave a film. 

pH: ~5.0

Is it right for me?

Velvet Cleansing Milk is an effective but gentle cleanser for skin that's dry, normal, or moderately oily. It may not provide enough cleansing power for very oily skin. 

If you use the double cleansing method, Velvet Cleansing Milk is a second cleanser. It's strong enough to remove sunscreen and light makeup, but waterproof makeup may require an oil cleanser or makeup remover first.

Only cleanser I can use.

When my moisture barrier was damaged, irritated, and in need of lots of care, this was the cleanser that came in so clutch when I needed all moisture and gentleness. This (along with Solid gold and other minimal products) restored my skin to a healthy comfortable place. It's honestly just me so much relief, most of all because I don't have to search for a cleanser anymore. It's been almost two years and almost nothing in my routine has changed, but certainly not this because it feels amazing to use and I can totally trust it will do what I need it to do. And it just happens to remove mascara and sunscreen better than other non-oil cleansers which was just icing on the cake.

Gentler than Some

I had gotten dry skin from overwashing my face and applying too many skincare products. Since the beginning of the year, I stopped washing my face unless it got really dirty and rolled back on the skincare. My skin became softer and oilier again but any time I washed my face (maybe once every couple of weeks) it would become dry and I would have to start all over again. I bought this and it's much gentler than other facial cleansers I've used and it doesn't **** all the moisture out like a ghoul and so I don't have to keep working to repair my skin after every face wash.

Best cleanser I’ve ever used

I’m really sensitive to surfactants, they make my eyes swell shut. This is one of the only cleansers I’ve found that I can use without any issues. It’s perfect for sensitive skin.
