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.
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.
All Stratia products are free of common irritants like fragrance, alcohol, and essential oils.
- Velvet Cleansing Milk
I really like this gentle cleanser. It gets the job done without drying out my skin. I really like using it after my oil cleanser.
My skin feels cleaner and softer when I use this. It is a bit pricey for me to use twice a day, so I use a similar -- though less lovely -- gentle cleanser in the AM and VCM at night.
I bought this along with Liquid Gold to soothe my super dry, sensitive skin. Although I’ve ordered Liquid Gold before, this is my first time trying out the Velvet Cleansing Milk. It’s gentle to the skin without making my skin feel dry. Highly recommend this cleanser to those who are extra sensitive to even the most gentle of cleansers. For reference, I suffer from Lupus and thus, occasionally have hives on my face. Of course, it may be different for others. However, for me, it does the job of cleansing it without further irritating it. Thanks, Stratia!
This cleanser reminds me of CeraVe hydrating cleanser which leaves unpleasant film. But the Velvet one seems better as it does not dry out my skin (vs. CeraVe hydrating one dried my skin out, even when I used it for hands). I use the Velvet cleanser as the 2nd cleanse to make sure I remove oil residue after the 1st cleanse. Will NOT repurchase
Makes my face feel clean but never stripped. Havent been able to find anything like it!
