What’s the Deal with Cleansing Milk?

You’ve seen them in stores, but what, exactly, are cleansing milks? These skin savers are amazing for winter. The milky feel of them helps your skin retain all the moisture it can while (ideal for winter) still deep-cleaning away dirt and oil. They’re worth investing in if you have dry skin that has a tough time in wintertime. Try one of the below for a clear, glowing complexion.
