I’ve found holy grail, staple products in several skincare categories, but when it comes to facial cleansers, I’m stumped.

Most cleansers are either too stripping, don’t feel “cleansing” enough or don’t control breakouts the way I expect.

My shower is loaded with several test cleansers, but the one I tend to reach for in the morning is Juice Beauty’s Cleansing Milk, a gentle, non-foaming wash that gives my pretty-clean morning skin a nice shot of moisture.

{I purchased Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk. It cost $22 for a 6.75-ounce plastic pump jar.}

While I’m not exactly of the philosophy that we can forgo cleansing in the morning (most of us sweat at night or — gasp! — go to bed without washing our faces), I do believe that most of us can probably get by with a gentle cleanser that refreshes our skin in the morning and jump-starts it for toners, serums and facial oils.

That’s why I’m drawn to Juice Beauty’s Cleansing Milk during my morning shower. It’s creamy and feels almost like a moisturizer as I massage it onto my face, and it rinses away easily while leaving a light balmy layer of protection on my skin.

I’ve used it at night before — just to test it against a layer of everyday makeup — and while it could cut through a bit of it, I wouldn’t recommend it as your sole cleanser for makeup removal.

Also, I like to defend my skin with acne-fighting cleansers and treatments at night, and I can’t say that Juice Beauty’s Cleansing Milk is totally packed with acne-fighting ingredients that have worked for me (though it does contain my beloved frankincense oils!).

Here’s the full ingredients list:

Organic juices of vitis vinifera (organic white grape juice)*, rubus idaeus (organic red raspberry juice)*, aloe barbadensis (organic aloe juice)*, vegetable glycerin, caprylic/capric triglyceride, organic plant oils of carthamus tinctorius (organic safflower seed oil)*, helianthus annuus (organic sunflower seed oil)*, sesamum indicum (organic sesame seed oil)*, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond oil), vitis vinifera (grape seed oil), cetearyl alcohol, gluconolactone, cetearyl glucoside, sorbitan stearate, sodium benzoate, botanical extracts of calendula officinalis (marigold flower extract), chamomilla recutita (chamomile extract), tilia cordata (linden flower extract), boswellia carterii (frankincense extract), tocopherol (Vitamin E), ascorbyl palmitate (Vitamin C), panthenol (Vitamin B5), xanthan gum, tetrasodium glutamate diacetate, allantoin, sodium hydroxide, citrus aurantium dulcis (organic sweet orange & sweet neroli)* , chamomilla recutita (chamomile) and boswellia carterii (organic frankincense) pure essential oils

So, Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk’s bottom line for me? It’s a maybe repurchase. I shelled out just $22 for this pump bottle, and it’s lasted a good amount of time.

Once I finish it, I may move on to another cream cleanser just to see what else is out there, but I’d definitely recommend Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk as a budget-friendly, widely available option.
