My skin has been having a bit of a ho-hum time over the last month. It’s always my belief that where there is bad skin, there is something else bad going on (e.g. stress, poor eating, dehydration, illness, etc). I’ll admit I’ve been way too busy to even think about what my skin is trying to tell me and I think all of the above external factors are probably at play. I’ve had a few bad breakouts, and overall my skin has looked dull, and maybe even a touch grey. So that’s my disclaimer as I launch into my review of Latte di Pulizia per il Viso al Cetriolo e all’Amamelide by L’Erbolario. I picked up a bottle of the facial cleanser in an erboristeria in Italy last Christmas because I had forgotten to pack a cleanser.
About the product:
Loosely translated the name of the product means “Cleansing milk for the face with cucumber and witch hazel” and below the picture on the front of the bottle is the specification that the product is a skin purifier for oily and combination skin. Unfortunately there is no ingredient list. The instructions state to apply the milk to face and neck in the morning and at night in a uniform and careful way. Remove it with a cotton pad spritzed with toner. Then take a second pass with another cotton pad but this time with it soaked with toner. Also the back of the bottle says that the active ingredients are: triglycerides, witch hazel, cucumber extract, and hydrating complex “NMF.” Nice.
