Laneige White Dew Milky Cleanser
Bought for: P1094 (150ml)
Bought from: Althea Korea
In my last Althea Korea haul, I featured several Laneige products just because they are simply awesome. Believe me, in my next shopping trip to the website, I'll make sure to include another Laneige product. Anyway, here's a quick review on this White Dew Milky Cleanser which is part of Laneige White Dew Range.
Looking for bright, glowy skin? Laneige's White Dew range contains Saururus Chinensis extract that works effectively to lighten dark spots and even out skin coloration. It's also formulated with the glycol component of Phyto sugar water that moisturizes and brightens the skin. The milky cleanser is a creamy formula that lathers up well, ridding the skin of dirt, impurities and leftover makeup residue, leaving it feeling supple, looking bright and feeling great. With continuous use, you'll be left with a complexion that's supple and radiant, and who doesn't want that?
HOW TO USE
Dampen the skin, then squeeze out a pea sized amount and lather up with hands, before massaging onto the skin in circular motions. Rinse off with water after and pat skin dry.
Product comes in an easy-squeeze tube container which is very convenient and easy to use. I use to like this type of packaging because I can bring it anywhere without the fear of spilling and breaking due to mishandling. Also, I appreciate that it comes with a cardboard box and a leaflet where I can additional knowledge about the product claims and benefits, as well as the potent ingredients it has. For hygiene purposes, the area where you dispense the cleanser is sealed with an aluminum foil.
SCENT, TEXTURE AND EASE OF APPLICATION
It has a very subtle scent. Scent is my weakness as you all know if you have been reading this blog for quite a while. I couldn't exactly tell where the scent is comparable to but I'd say that it smells clean and fresh. It's not strongly fragranced which is good as fragrance might be a contributor to clogged pores and breakouts.
The cleanser has a solid white color and it resembles Elmer's glue just without the thick, sticky texture. I think the right term is that it's very milky and it feels great on the skin. It's formulated to lather richly so at first, I was nervous as my skin isn't always compatible with foamy formulas. I'm glad that it's very gentle on the skin and doesn't feel too tightening unlike other foam cleansers I've tried before. Despite that, it could still be ever so slightly drying. It's a good thing that all other skincare under the White Dew range are all moisturizing so the taut feeling can be remedied easily. The cleanser is very easy to rinse and doesn't leave any slimy residue.
Laneige White Dew Milky Cleanser is infused with three star ingredients which are Trehalose (a moisturizing agent that binds water to the skin, preventing evaporation to keep it hydrated for longer), Saururus Chinensis Extract (effectively brightens the skin and reduces dark spots) and Phyto Sugar Water (moisturizes the skin and brightens it for a radiant complexion).
Using it regularly for a little over a month, I feel like my skin is cleansed from deep within every after use. There's a slight brightening effect but I think that's because I am using it with other skincare products I found suitable for my skin. Still, this could've played a huge part too considering I use it more than I do with other skincare products I have. Why? Well, let's say I use this product more than twice a day: morning after waking up, evening after I first-cleanse and sleep and in between chores when I feel like doing it. Hello? Summer!
I wouldn't say this turned out to be a holy grail Laneige product but because it does what it's supposed to do, I would still recommend it to everyone whatever your skin type is. Using it in conjunction with my other trusted beauty products, my skin is now starting to clear up again. Blemishes are lightening and my skin is more balanced. It's very gentle too and definitely non-sting. If you are looking for a maintenance cleanser, better buy it. It may be a little steep compared to other cleansers but is actually very economical to use. A little goes a long, long way!
