100 Pumps of Marcelle Essentials Cleansing Milk | A question asked, answered.

100 pumps of Marcelle Cleansing Milk

Have you ever wondered what a hundred pumps of your favourite product would look like?

I have. This is it, emblazoned by the sun — one hundred evenings’ worth of Marcelle Essentials Cleansing Milk ($14.50 CAD), the one cleanser I just can’t quit. It’s perfect for balancing out my dry, dehydrated skin, and cleanses away the day’s detritus without stripping out an ounce of moisture.

I’m borderline fanatical about Marcelle, and I think this cleanser has a lot to do with it. I can’t find anything else (at any price point) that ticks all the boxes I’m looking for: scent-free, non-stripping, gentle, balancing, comforting.

Marcelle Essentials Cleansing Milk review holy grail

Marcelle Cleansing Milk on steroids. Available in-stores now (and at a great price)!

Cleansing milks take a little getting used to, sure, but I think they’re worthwhile for anyone with dry or combination-dehydrated skin. Even my [very dry] complexion will overproduce oil if it’s being overcleansed, and this cleansing milk absolutely helps keep my skin from getting oily throughout the day — with the help of a heavy moisturizer and my Marcelle Face Powder ($14.50 CAD), of course.

You could almost say that it’s… Essential. (I’m sorry! I couldn’t pass on such a terrible pun.)

Best cleansing milk - Marcelle Essentials old packaging

My first bottle of this stuff (long since repackaged). We’ve been through a lot!

The ingredients:

Water, Carbomer, Beeswax, Cetyl Alcohol, Cucumber Extract, Diazolidinyl Urea, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Aroma, Glycerin, Methylparaben, Polysorbate 60, Propylene Glycol, Propylparaben, Peach Fruit Extract, Sorbitan Stearate, Triethanolamine.

P.S. I love the Marcelle Essentials Cleansing Water ($14.50 CAD), too!

P.P.S. It’s kind of weird that all of my Marcelle favourites are the exact same price. Clearly, what we can learn from this is that all $14.50 Marcelle products are cosmetic gold!

    I love love love this stuff! I tried out their Micellar makeup remover the other day (when they had it in this size), and I was so blown away by how effective it was at removing makeup. Totally did not expect that froma $19.99 product!

    This will probably be the next cleansing water I try. I love Biotherm which is my favorite so far but for review's sake I must try one of Marcelle's cleanser. Good to know you like this one. :)

    Wow – I'm Canadian and I love cleansing milks and cleansing creams, but I've never tried this one (or even heard of it before)! I'll definitely pick this up when my current cleansing milk runs out. I'm using the Juice Beauty cleansing milk right now, but I really dislike the strong smell and texture.

    I've been using Yves Rocher's Derma Soothing Cleansing Milk and I love it! It sounds exactly like the Marcelle one you're describing. YR's is $15 for 150ml but they're having a 45% off it on their website now :D

    Waaaaah, I wish I lived in Canada so that I could get my grubby little paws on a bottle of this. My skin is the worst! It gets oily around my t-zone and so dry around my mouth and sometimes nostrils. Gross!

    This sounds fabulous, Rae! The moment I head Stateside (Or even.. before I do!), I'll definitely do a Marcelle order and pick me up some theNotice lust-haves. I'm thinking… The powder, the cleansing milk + cleansing water, the BB Cream and Go-Violet? :D
