Review: Eucerin DermatoClean Mild Cleansing Milk

Eucerin DermatoClean Mild Cleansing Milk 200ml MYR 35.90 ( Sale Price )
Normal Price MYR 43.90

I started using cleansing milk since mid April last year and found it pretty good for my dry skin type. I do have my share of ups and downs while trying out new cleansers. I particularly dislike my first one, which is from Madara and later found a good one from Trilogy. Though I found something that I liked, my wallet is saying something else. Both the cleansers cost me MYR 80-120, which only last me for 4 months with everyday usage.

So the best alternative is look for a budget one, which is drugstore ones! Finding one which does not contain the nasties is hard, I tell ya. After browsing through several brands which claims to be 'dermatologist tested', I stumble upon this one. Though this cleanser is not anywhere near organic, I don't mind this one because the ingredients listed are safe. ( Did another check list in skin deep and all is good )

My Experience

The cleanser is milky white and consistency is semi thick. Like any other milk cleansers, it works well when  massaging it gently unto a slightly damp face.

The first thing I noticed is the smell. I like cleansers that smells naturally fresh but this one smells like I am rubbing Rosken or aqua cream unto my face. Smells really 'dermatolo-gic'. This is the best way I can describe it.

In terms of performance, I must say that this cleanser slowly grows on me. It cleanses my skin well without stripping it clean and leaving my skin feeling moisturised. However though, it does leave a slightly oily film. ( Most milk cleansers do anyway ) I do not find this a big issue because I usually double cleanse with a gentle cleanser after this.


After using it for 2 months plus, I am glad to say this one is a keeper for me. It does not break me out, unlike the Madara cleanser. In fact, I haven't experience any breakout since using this cleanser! This is perfect for those who have similar skin type like mine, slightly dry skin with sensitive skin. This cleanser does not give you any slightest tingling ( I experienced a little of this when using the Madara and Trilogy ).

I have already repurchase a 2nd bottle of this because of the performance and also, my wallet thanked me too! This cleanser gets a 4 out of 5 from me.

This item was purchased by me for my personal purposes. This review is based on my honest and personal experience with this product and is not influenced by any parties.


  1. I have not tried any Eucerin skincare products except their hand cream which always does the job well. It's definitely pays for the price.

    1. Hi Dawn!:) I think this product is definitely worth trying. But if you are not a cleansing milk person, you might want to try their Dermatoclean Cleansing Gel.( which I am keen to try too ). I must say that their ingredients are much safer than Avene, Vichy or Neutrogena.

  2. I'm looking for a cleansing milk too and this one looks good enough based on the ingredients! Will go and check it out. Thanks for the review!

    1. Hi Sesame! Yeah, this is a budget friendly cleansing milk and a pretty good one too. One caution though, you might not like the smell:P

  3. Wait..how to use it? I bought it last week but still dunno how to use it. Please advice me. And that was the first time I bought milk cleanser..

    1. Hi! Use a small amount and massage unto face, as you would with a cleanser. Rinse. The instructions can be found at the bottle.

  4. i've never used these kind of products before. does it need to be massaged on wet face? and how do u make ur face 'damp' lol. is it just a slight splashing to the skin?
    anyways thanks for the review very informative! :)

    1. Hi! Just treat this as you would to your normal cleanser as well as your routine. The only difference to cleansing milk is that it does not foam as much and this does not dry out your skin.

  5. hi, can I use this cleansing milk as the only cleanser in my facial cleansing procedure (without a double cleanse)?
    p/s:The instructions at the bottle doesn't provide very clear info.

  6. if we didn't apply the toner after using it, will it be okay?
