Before I discovered the Kedma Milk Cleanser, I jumped from one cleanser to another, unable to find the right one for me. My T-zone always gave me problems—it got greasy, had blackheads, and looked dull.
I loved using facial cleansers that gave me that squeaky-clean feeling after I washed. If I happened to use a cleanser that didn’t give me that satisfaction, I’d wash a second time, or used soap, instead.
But I learned that we’re not supposed to use soap on our faces; it’s too harsh. So, I went back to my squeaky-clean cleansers. My skin, however, began to change. It became dry and sensitive, and sadly, the blackheads and grease returned.
I then learned that facial cleansers were not supposed to leave your face feeling dry or tight after a wash. If it does, the product’s formulation may be too strong for your skin. According to one study, soaps and harsh cleansers may cause skin dryness, scaling, roughness, skin irritation, and allergies.
That’s when I realized I may have been damaging my skin for a long time by using strong cleansers. No wonder I felt squeaky clean; I was probably losing the top layer of my skin little by little.
From One Cleanser to Another
Since then, I vowed to be extra careful with the products I used on my face. I heard about Cetaphil and how mild and good it was for the skin. I gave it a try. My excitement faded after my first use because I didn’t feel any cleaning effect. I still felt the excess oil on my face. I might as well have just used plain water.
Then I found Ponds Facial Foam. I was quite happy with the product. I loved the foam it created as I massaged it on my face. My face also felt fresh and clean after washing. It didn’t make my skin dry, either.
Later, though, I began to crave for something more than a simple face wash. My skin was undergoing (aging) changes. I no longer felt as satisfied with Ponds as I used to. I started having issues with dryness, uneven complexion, and skin sensitivity. I also wanted something that made my skin feel softer.
The Gentle, Deep Cleanser
It was around this time that I was introduced to Kedma Milk Cleanser. These are the reasons it caught my attention:
It (claims to be) hypoallergenic – Because of my sensitive skin, I couldn’t just grab any product from a drugstore. I was allergic to beads, too, no matter how fine or expensive they are. This was the reason I was excited for Cetaphil; I’m a sucker for most things hypoallergenic.
It’s great for removing makeup – I’m so lazy when it comes to removing makeup. I previously used Ponds Night Cream before washing. But it took me a while to apply, remove, and wash off. I loved the savings and convenience offered by a multitasking facial cleanser like Kedma’s Milk Cleanser. It’s not a facial wash, so don’t expect foam. It’s a cream cleanser that doubles as a makeup remover.
It can correct skin discoloration – I have sunspots and some areas on my face are subtly lighter. Kedma Milk Cleanser contains orange extract, which is known to help correct skin discoloration by lightening dark spots and other blemishes.
It’s moisturizing and anti-aging – This milk cleanser also contains sesame oil and sandalwood oil. Sesame oil is a natural sunscreen, which keeps skin soft and smooth, and prevents wrinkles. Sandalwood oil is a natural antiseptic, which heals pimples and dry skin. It also brightens up your skin tone.
It contains Dead Sea salt – Best of all, I love that the product is a deep cleanser. It contains Dead Sea salt, which gently but efficiently removes dirt and oil from your pores. Dead Sea salt is known for a plethora of benefits—it rejuvenates, moisturizes, protects, and balances the pH of your skin.
How to Use the Kedma Milk Cleanser
Kedma Milk Cleanser comes in an 80ml pump container. Its consistency is like that of lotion. Get one or two pumps of cleanser on your forefinger and middle finger, then gently massage throughout your face and neck. Remove using a cotton pad or muslin cloth.
You’ll be amazed at how much dirt and makeup those two pumps can clean off from your face. You can use it as your first-step skincare treatment, according to Kedma.
Is it Really Hypoallergenic?
Kedma Milk Cleanser is mild and formulated for sensitive skin. But not all of us are allergic to the same things. If you have sensitive skin, make sure to check the product’s ingredients and find out if you’re allergic to any of them. Isopropyl Palmitate, for example, can cause allergic reactions in some individuals.
Can this be the hypoallergenic cleanser you’ve been looking for? For me, it seems like my search is over. I’ve found the one—a product that deep-cleans my skin, moisturizes it, reverses the signs of aging, and stays gentle all the time.
If you’re looking for that end-all cleanser for your skin, too, the Kedma Milk Cleanser is worth a try.
