It is no surprise or shock that the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser is my favorite cleanser. There are multiple posts all over SB talking about the Milky Jelly Cleanser so check them out:
But today I wanted to talk about the Milky Jelly Cleanser comparing to other cleansers I’ve tried out lately, and why I always seem to go back to my old faithful.
In past years I have used numerous different cleansers.
Some include: Origins Checks and Balances, Philosophy Purity (which I LOVED for a few years), Tula Purifying Cleanser, Coconut Oil, Origins GinZing, Neutrogena Grapefruit Cleanser, Fresh Soy Cleanser, Boscia Detoxifying Black Charcoal Cleanser, Boscia Makeup-Breakup Oil, Clinique Cleanser (which was everyones intro to skincare aka the classic 3 step system), and honestly probably so many more.
But every cleanser I have tried since I was first introduced to the Milky Jelly, has always had a flaw, something that wasn’t just perfect for me like the Milky Jelly, so back to Milky Jelly I went.
Milky Jelly and I just click. It is super gentle, takes off my makeup like a dream (besides the day where I layer on mascara, then I go in with an oil) and leaves my skin feeling soft, hydrated, loved. It helps my skin stay clear, but I can still open my eyes with it all over my face since it has the same gentle agents in contact solution.
Since I am a Glossier Rep, you can shop with me, buy Milky Jelly, and save money.
I love trying out new skincare to see what works, what doesn’t work, and what is eh and has a better replacement. I recently heard about an article from Reviews.com called Best Facial Cleanser Reviews of 2017 where they put numerous cleansers to the test, most that you would probably know of, and talk about their favorites, and which were ruled out and why. I was so in awe reading the article because they were ruling out main cleansers because of numerous factors like ones that were meant for 1 skin type, ones with intense oil stripping ingredients and ones with controversial ingredients. I loved it, thought you would as well, so let’s talk about it.
After reading this entire article, and reading all of the cleansers that were cut in each round, and all the cleansers that were finalists, I saw some big names.
Ones that were top contenders (that you might know): Kiehls’ Ultra Facial Cleanser, Aesop Parsley Seed Facial Cleanser, and Kate Somerville Exfolikate Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash.
Ones that were cut (that you might know): Dr. Brandt Pores No More Cleanser, Neutrogena One Step Gentle Cleanser, SK-II Facial Treatment Cleansing Oil, Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Calming Cleansing Milk and Olay Age Defying Wet Cleansing Cloths.
Seriously so eye opening. I do want to report, that even though it might not be a top contender, the Glossier Milky Jelly is a finalist. Basically I can continue using Milky Jelly knowing it isn’t ruining my skin or anything serious like that.
The overall winner was the Cellex-C Betaplex Gentle Foaming Cleanser. This cleanser is next on my list to try! It only has 5 ingredients and according to Reviews.com, is $35 or less, works wonders with taking off makeup, and keeping skin clean, clear and not stripped.
See if your face cleanser was cut or made the list!
