Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Milk: Review

Getting dolled up is our birth right but removing the paint and powder is our fundamental duty.Of all the sins a woman can commit 'sleeping with makeup on' scores to be the biggest one ;) (thanks to the aftermath..pimples,acne,breakouts...synonyms with a sole result-an added wrinkle on the forehead because of the sheer tension of it).All right,putting exaggerations
aside and coming back to the real world...to rescue out the beauties from the aforesaid situation,the national and international cosmetic markets are flooded with cleansers,cleansing milks,makeup removers and the like.Being "Budget" belleza,I found Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Milk to be one of the most affordable ones coming from a fairly reliable brand as well.

What It Claims:

 Quantity: 200 ml

 Price: INR 105/-
 Ingredients:

Packaging: Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Milk comes in their trademark white plastic bottle with a green flip-open cap.
 The cap was so flimsy that it broke the very same week
it was bought (Now I have no option but to open the screw cap everytime I have to use it). Other than that nothing specific to elaborate on.

Consistency:

 My Take: After reading and listening so much about the skincare routine in the beauty circles,youtube,beauty blogs and in day-to-day life,I decided to start some kind of a daily,weekly and monthly skin care routine.When I googled about it,I came across the term CTM (yaa yaa..I know all of you know its Cleansing Toning Moisturisng) as often as we sang the national anthem in our school ;)
Without wasting a moment I ordered the requisites from an online shopping site and then came this Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Milk.
  

Coming from a reliable brand like Himalaya Herbals I had some expectations (if not high hopes) from this product,but it did not make me happy.When I used it for the first time,it actually tested my patience while coming out of the bottle.The consistency is so thick it just doesn't come out of the flip opening.I always have to unscrew the whole cap to get some product after shaking it several times (so the broken flap of the cap was already of no use). By no means should it be called cleansing "milk",its rather a thick cleansing cream.More quantity of it gets used up because of its thick consistency.As far as its makeup removing quality is considered,it does what any other cleansing product would do (Okie..I know it cleansed all the above swatches well but believe me my son's Jhonsons baby lotion too does it equally well). Back home from a party I cleansed my face and was so happy to see the cotton ball all covered up with my makeup,but I thought why not use a makeup removing pad above it to see if there's any trace of makeup left on my face..to my surprise Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Milk had just removed the lipstick and compact,the foundation was very much there on my face which came off with the makeup removing pad.
Post application it leaves the face a bit greasy,you have to either apply a toner or wash the face off with a face wash.Since I have a super dry skin,it worked okay on me in winters (on my skin it wasn't very greasy,rather it moisturised the skin then) but in summers its a no-no for me! Though it claims to be suitable for all skin types,I seriously doubt oily skinned beauties will like it!!

My Likes:)
1.Herbal
2.Inexpensive ;)
3.Unbreakable therefore travel friendly (especially smaller quantities)

My Dislikes:(
1.Formula very thick for cleansing "milk"
2.Brittle flimsy flip cap
3.Not appropriate for deep pore cleansing as it claims.
4.Greasy post application
5.Not for ALL skin types
6.Even though in its inactive ingredients list, there are paraben contents in it
7.Requires cotton pads as against the makeup removing pads and wipes available in the market which are easier and more effective.

Last Word: Himalaya Herbals Deep Cleansing Milk did neither stand true to my expectations nor its own claims.

Repurchase: Hell....NO!

Overall Rating: 2.5/5

* Which Makeup Remover/Cleansing Milk do you use?
