French skin care products have a certain “je ne sais quoi” that make them instantly chic. So it’s no surprise that Collosol Paris Eau de Lait Cleansing Milk makes me feel elegant, even when I’m doing the routine chore of cleansing my face and removing my makeup.
Collosol Paris Eau de Lait Cleansing Milk has just landed on American shores. Learn about it and why it’s a favorite of French women and will be a fave of Americans, as well.
The Collosol Legend:
Collosol Eau de Lait was “born in the 1950’s, According to the press literature, it didn’t take long before it caught on. “Well-known actresses” visited a pharmacy near the Champs-Élysées Theater looking for an anti-fatigue/makeup remover that they could use after performances.
If you know anything about stage makeup you also know that it is notoriously messy to remove. You can use cold cream, but it is heavy and unpleasant. So the pharmacist created a gentle half milk-half water formula with a subtle (powdery and light) fragrance that has a no-rinse formula.
The formula is inspired by ancient beauty rituals. There are other iterations of this product, but the Eau de Lait is a gentle version for the US Market.
Eau de Lait isn’t a micellar water, and it’s not a thicker cleansing milk, but a sort of hybrid that whisks away the “gunk” leaving your skin clean and refreshed.
No wonder the actresses (and now everyone everywhere) loves it. It’s said that the fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld uses a full bottle of it every day in his bath.
How to Use:
Collosol is a simple product that you use like you would micellar water. Simply swipe it over your face with a cotton pad (or two). Even long wear makeup seemed to melt away. There is no need to rinse and no residue.
The hot pink top and the clear plastic base is attractive. You can also use it in your bath (ala Karl) but just use a couple of capfuls. At $28 for 3.4 oz. you’ll want to save most of it for your face.
