Once upon a time, my loopy Uncle Karl (Lagerfeld) told Allure that before he bathes in his giant tub, he has his maids pour an entire bottle of Collosol Eau de Lait cleansing milk into crystal bottles, which are then poured into the tub.
First of all…if Karl’s maids are pouring cleaning milk into crystal bottles solely to then pour them into the tub, does that suggest that they’re in all probability additionally doing equally redonk issues like pouring Choupette’s water into crystal bottles earlier than filling her water bowl? Second, AN ENTIRE BOTTLE OF THIS STUFF EVERY DAY? Doesn’t that sound a wee bit OTT? Even for KL?
Collosol Eau de Lait ($18, 3.4 fl oz)
This stuff has been round in France for a couple of billion years, however now it’s simply obtainable right here within the U.S. Word on the road is that it’s a favourite amongst well-known French actresses and fashions for face washing, eradicating make-up, and as a physique cleanser within the bathtub.
Because of this, I had excessive hopes!
AQUA (WATER), PEG-40 HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL, PHENOXYETHANOL, STYRENE/ACRYLATES COPOLYMER, OLUS (VEGETABLE) OIL, GLYCERIN, LAURYL GLUCOSIDE, POLYGLYCERYL-2,DIPOLYHYDROXYSTEARATE, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), CITRIC ACID, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, ACRYLATES/BEHENETH-25, METHACRYLATE COPOLYMER, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, DICAPRYLYL CARBONATE, GLYCERYL OLEATE, COLOPHONIUM
Incidentally, it smells precisely just like the bottles of Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Cologne my kin within the Philippines would carry me each time they visited, which I’d dab on my tiny eight-year-old wrists like I knew what I used to be doing, LOL. It makes you odor like lemons and lilies and lasts all day lengthy.
The scent is *very* sturdy — as sturdy as that old-school Baby Cologne — and you would completely get away with utilizing it as a fragrance, which is what I do (I simply put slightly on my wrists), however I can’t suggest it for a lot else…
Sadly, as a face make-up remover, and even as a common cleanser, it’s barely enough. It’s for positive not as succesful as DHC’s Deep Cleansing Oil.
Also — IMPORTANT — obtained delicate eyes? Yeah, me too. If this will get wherever close to my eyes or my lash traces, my eyes start to water and sting.
I haven’t tried it within the bathtub but… I’ll. I simply have to trace down my crystal vase first. 😉
