Iraya Lotus Seed Cleansing Milk Review

Cleansing milk, face wash, face packs, I love experimenting with these skincare products. I usually try different face packs more than any other skincare product. In case of Cleansing milk, I have tried only a few to name Himalaya Herbals Cleansing milk and Ayur Herbals Cleansing milk. Today am going to review Iraya Lotus Seed Cleansing Milk. Yes I know the Lotus Seed ingredient might have excited some of you. So let’s straight head onto the review.
Brand Claims
With Lotus seed and Liquorice extracts, this cleansing milk easily penetrates the skin, cleansing the pores from dirt, makeup and pollutants,. Gently balances skin’s oiliness and helps to retain its natural moisture level. An ideal makeup remover.
Ingredients – Aqua, Sesame oil (Sesamum Indicum), Bees Wax, Stearic Acid, Lotus Seed Extracts, Glyceryl Monostearate, Cetyl Alcohol, Caprylyl Glycol, Tea,  Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, Liquorice, Lemon juice

My experience
The product packaging is square, pump up bottle, easy to use, difficult to carry during travelling. The pump up mechanism sufficiently dispenses the product each time and doesn’t lead to wastage. The
Iraya Lotus Seed Cleansing Milk is thin and runny is consistency and milky in texture.
The cleansing milk is of ivory colour and has a sweet floral fragrance. The fragrance is a bit lingering in nature, nonetheless it is mesmerizing. You can keep on smelling, in spite of having a picky nose. I love the smell to the core.

The cleansing milk being runny in consistency spreads easily over the face and neck 😃. A very small quantity is required due to its consistency. The cleansing milk gets absorbed easily, so we just need to dab it. The cleansing milk effectively removes dirt, grime and sebum. The skin is left squeaky clean and fresh. However the skin feels soft and moisturised. The cleansing milk leaves the skin a bit waxy. The cleansing milk has lotus seed and Liquorice extracts which are beneficial for the skin. So in the long term it might be helpful for the skin.
The cleansing milk effectively removes light makeup and lipstick. I never use heavy makeup so cannot comment on that point. Below you can see swatch of kajal, Maybelline lipstick and BB cream to get an idea on how the cleansing milk fairs with makeup removal. Overall the cleansing milk is a good choice for daily CTM purpose.
