Yes To Cucumbers Milk Cleanser Review
A milk cleanser is a product that I highly recommend… and I think everyone should have one in their skin care routine. In most cases, our skin doesn’t benefit from harsh or drying products. Our skin wants to be babied. ;) Personally, I like to use a milk/cream cleanser in the morning. Since I (hopefully) washed my face the night before, and removed my makeup, it’s nice to wake up and cleanse with something more gentle.
This cleanser is gentle and non-drying. It does have a cucumber scent, which I find quite lovely. It is a bit disappointing though, that they’ve added fragrance to this product, even though it’s specifically formulated for sensitive skin. Fragrance is a common, known irritant, and if you have sensitive skin, you should avoid it! One more negative is that it doesn’t do a very good job of removing makeup, so I suggest you add a makeup remover into your routine if you’d like to use this in the evening.
Anyways, here are some details:
- available at Target, Walmart, Ulta, CVS, drugstore.com, etc.
- $8.99 for 6 oz (according to the Yes To Carrots website)
- product claims:

As you can see in the photo above, the formula is creamy, but it isn’t thick or heavy.
A great positive about this cleanser, is that the pH is balanced to the pH of skin (if you have questions about this means, please ask! I may do a blog post about pH in the future, if you’re interested).
I would totally recommend this product. It’s a basic, inexpensive cleanser that I think you’ll be happy with, as I am. I probably will not repurchase this for two reasons… first, I have a long list of other cleansers I’d like to try, and second, Exuviance has a milk cleanser that I love just a bit more than this one.
If you have any more questions for me, please let me know!!
