Clean Beauty Finds: Creamy Facial Cleansers

Clean Beauty Creamy Facial Cleansers

Greener, cleaner beauty products. I’ve talked to a lot of you who are looking for better versions of conventional products you use every day – from shampoo to eye shadow to nail polish and everything in between.

There are plenty of choices out there but I get the feeling people like to get some feedback about products before they buy. That’s why I’m starting a new series of Clean Beauty roundups. The Clean Beauty series will cover products I’ve personally tried – or in some cases that have come highly recommended by others. I’ll be adding to these lists as I try new things, so be sure to check back occasionally. I hope you find the Clean Beauty series useful!

Creamy Cleansers & Cleansing Milks

So let’s get started with creamy cleansers – OK? I am a super-fan of these creamy formulas that moisturize like crazy, while still managing to deep clean and even remove makeup.

Creamy cleansers (also commonly called cleansing milks) tend to be non-sudsing which may seem unusual for some of you. Even though they don’t foam, creamy cleansers work to cleanse pores of dirt and impurities. They do it in a very gentle way – using plant-based oils and butters – which may actually be better for helping skin to retain moisture. 

Most formulas also have active ingredients to hydrate and rejuvenate skin – helping it to look its best. Creamy cleansers are often geared toward people with normal to dry/mature skin but they can be fantastic for those with sensitive skin and sometimes even oily skin – since ingredients can help balance out skin.

Here are some creamy cleansers I recommend:

Juice Beauty Cleansing Milk

Of all the facial cleansers I have tried, this is the one I have purchased most often. It is just the right consistency – not too thick, not too thin and I love the subtle, fresh scent with a hint of orange. Made with organic grapeseed and sunflower oils, as well as Juice Beauty’s anti-oxidant rich juice base and soothing chamomile and calendula. Doubles as a makeup remover and a shaving cream.

Mad Hippie and Other Favorite Creamy Cleansers // www.mindfulmomma.com

Mad Hippie Cream Cleanser

This cleanser is newer to my repertoire but it’s a great one! Made with a base of sesame and jojoba oils, plus shea butter, along with active ingredients like orchid extract for its protective and reparative effects, and algae extract for its water binding properties. The glass pump bottle is a nice bonus.

EO Coconut Cleansing Milk and Other Favorite Creamy Cleansers // www.mindfulmomma.com

EO Coconut Cleansing Milk

I’ve only tried a small sample of this cleansing milk but I thought it was top notch. The coconut oil helps remove makeup and unclog pores. Mango seed butter, argan and pumpkin seed oils add tons of moisture. Essential oils of rose, ylang-ylang and vetiver give it a lovely scent.

    You've seen the USDA Organic seal on plenty of food products. But have you noticed it on skin care products very often? Probably not. Part of the reason is that the USDA governs agricultural products only - and many products for bath and body contain ingredients beyond the agricultural sphere. That said, as I … [Continue reading]
