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.

This cleanser I bought because my skin sometimes gets flaky from using Tret. It is incredibly creamy and a fabulous cleanser. My face is soft AND clean after using this product. I’m very pleased

Works perfectly

Been using this with liquid gold moisturiser for months and have completely cleared up all of my acne. I have extremely sensitive skin which is very very oily but this cleanser has saved my face. I have tried almost every facial cleanser you can get and this is the only one with legitimate ingredients and gives results.

Fantastic - Holy Grail A.M. Cleanser

I didnt think this was going to be effective enough of a cleanser for my oily-combo breakout-prone skin but it has definitely lived up to its promises. I use this after a korean balm cleanser and it is very effective but gentle and does not leave my skin feeling tight especially if used with very luke warm water. I even mix in a drop or two of either an exfoliating or salicylic cleanser depending on what my skin needs and it does mix beautifully with other cleansers.

Super gentle facial cleanser.

I have very dry skin, if you look at me wrong I start flaking. This face wash doesn't dry my skin like many others do. I alternate days between this and an oil cleanser and this works perfectly on the days I use it. No strong smell, no bad ingredients, good texture.
