Ilike Organic Skincare Lemon Cleansing Milk

I was first introduced to Ilike Organic Skincare almost three years ago and it's a line that continues to impress me.  Ilike flies a little under the radar in the green blogging world, but the company, which has been around since the 1950's, has quite an extensive product range and numerous unique and interesting offerings.  The entire line is BDIH Certified Natural and made in Hungary without gluten, nuts, GMO's, or synthetic chemicals.  Everything is also cruelty-free and packaged in recycled and BPA-free packaging.

Most recently I've been trialing the Lemon Cleansing Milk*  ($55 for 8.4 ounces), described as a "gentle soft texture cleansing milk for normal/combination to dehydrated skin types that removes makeup and impurities and hydrates skin."  I received the cleanser during the summer months, but it wasn't until the weather turned colder in the fall that I really came to fully appreciate this product.  For that reason, I'm glad that my semi-hiatus from blogging left me testing this item out over multiple seasons, since it gave me a chance to get a really great feel for it!

The Cleansing Milk is a non-lathering cleanser with a light lotion consistency.  Ilike recommends using it in much the same way as you would an oil cleanser or cold cream -- that is, massaging the product onto dry skin and wiping it off with a cotton pad or damp wash cloth.  I've used the product this way and also on moistened skin like a more standard cleanser, and I've enjoyed it both ways.  The cleanser wipes away easily and doesn't leave behind any noticeable residue on the skin.  It also does a good job removing face makeup and light eye makeup too, although I typically prefer to use an oil or separate makeup remover around the eyes before going in with the Lemon Cleansing Milk. 

In the fall and winter, when my skin tends towards more dry and sensitive, this is a fantastic gentle cleanser that softly glides over the skin removing dirt and impurities without stripping the skin or disturbing moisture levels.  It leaves my face feeling hydrated and soft to the touch.  I also enjoyed the Cleansing Milk during the summer, however I found it a little too rich for daily use at that time of year, when my skin produces a little more oil. 

Some Ilike products are quite fragrant, but the Lemon Cleansing Milk has only a light lemon scent.  It's mild, fresh, and pleasant.  

The Bottom Line
The Lemon Cleansing Milk is a great gentle and non-drying cleanser, especially perfect for dryer skin types and during the cold winter months.  It has a light scent, removes makeup, and rinses off easily.
