Hey guys and happy hump day to you all! I’m going to to review the NEOGEN Milk to Foam Coconut Milk Pure Mild Cleanser. Cleansing is the most important part of your skincare routine, so I love to test out new skin cleansers out there. Neogen is a new brand to me, I’ve seen their products at Olive Young and I hear that it will be going in the Kbeauty lineup at Sephora. They have also won awards as a premium cleansing and exfoliating brand in Korea. Anywho, I thought this would be a good chance to try it out before it goes out of Korean borders.
The packaging is pretty simple and pretty big, it’s 300mL/9.9 fl oz. There is an option to get a pump, but I just got the no pump option. The cleanser is a quite thick and and creamy looking. It has no over powering scent, to me it kind of smells like Sprite haha. It’s probably because of the lime and bergamot oil in the formula. Yeah, surprisingly it doesn’t have a coconut-y smell even though it has coconut oil and fermented (lactobacillus) coconut fruit extract as the main ingredient. This cleanser is an all in one cleanser, it has the cleansing milk, oil, and foam component in one step and is said to leave the skin moisturised and not dry out the skin.
I used about a 3cm diameter amount of product and it might seem a little to spread over dry skin, once you add a little bit of water it more than enough. After spreading it over the entire face I massage it into the larger areas of my face and when it turns to a thick white consistency I add a bit of water and then lather it up a bit more. Once the larger areas are done I carefully massage the foam around my eyes to remove eyeliner, mascara, and eyeshadow. It did get in my eye a little and it stung like crazy, so be careful. I didn’t have to rub really hard, just in circular motions. While I was washing I was a little skeptical that it would remove all of my waterproof eye makeup, but after rinsing it was really clean! There was a very slight trace of mascara under the eyes, but I think if I went over it a couple more times it would have been removed completely. Even around the crevices of my nose was quite clean. I think if I used my brush cleanser with it it would have been amazing! Even with just hand washing it’s pretty great.
After rinsing my skin didn’t feel tight like most foam cleansers. It actually felt really smooth and soft. There wasn’t any kind of irritation or redness afterward either. Unless you have very sensitive skin I think this is a cleanser is great for anyone who wants a no fuss cleansing routine. It’s mild enough in my opinion to use in the morning as well. I’m sure I’ll go through this bottle quite quickly, but I’m all about that twice daily cleansing life. Each bottle costs 43,000KRW (RRP) but on their website now it’s on sale for 30,100KRW with the pump and 27,300KRW without. So guys enjoy this ‘lime in the coconut’ milk cleanser!
