Fabindia Lavender Cleansing Milk Review

fabindia cleansing milk-1a

Hello girlies

I was never a skin care enthusiast. My skin care routine was limited to only moisturizing and that too in the morning. But the pigmentation spots on cheeks and the occasional under eye dark circles have made me conscious of my skin.

This is my first cleansing milk and let’s see how it fared against my dry skin.

What it claims?

A gentle cleansing milk with grapeseed oil and lavender essential oil that penetrates deep to cleanse and moisturize your skin giving it a healthy glow.

Key Ingredients

Directions for use

It says to apply on cotton swab and cleanse in an upward direction, but I apply it directly on my face in circular motion. I remove it with a cotton swab or a damp sponge and finally wash off with water.


It comes in a see through plastic bottle with flip open cap. The packaging is sturdy and travel-friendly. The quantity is sufficient and will last me many months.

Consistency is creamy but little on runny side, which I am totally comfortable with as it helps in easy application on the face.

This is a gentle cleanser and I do not expect it to remove stubborn waterproof eye makeup. Since I myself do not use any makeup except a kajal/eyeliner, I do not have issues regarding this. I only use it to remove grime and dirt from my face at the end of  day, for which it does a good job. (Yay!)

I do not use it to remove kajal/eyeliner but even if it accidentally gets into my eyes, it does not sting. (Yay!) 

It  has a mild smell of lavender which lingers on for some time after which it fades. I like the smell but some sensitive-nosed people may not like it.

It does not dry my skin but I follow it with moisturizer anyway.

I tested this on my Maybelline gel eyeliner and some of my mom’s lipsticks.

It removed the lipsticks easily in one swipe but even after many swipes and tugging hard, it could not remove the eyeliner completely.

It removes eye shadows easily too.
