I bought this brand and the BWC brand after reading some reviews. I like the fact that both were in a pump and there is less wasted product (versus the Jason brand). This is a white creamy cleanser with a light to medium feel to it. When you rub it in and on, you get no foaming action. I think it smells better than the BWC brand if smell is important to you. Regardless, this product leaves my skin feeling clean without feeling tight. Note that I do use a separate eye makeup remover. I don't know if this cleanser alone would get that type of makeup off without losing its gentle quality. My husband, who has very sensitive skin, is using it right now too and I haven't heard any complaints from him!

I really like the smell and feel of this cleanser, and I love that it has Vitamin C and is natural. Until recently, I probably would have rated it at least 4 stars. But when I was on a trip recently, I washed my face in a bathroom that had white towels. (My bathroom towels are dark grey, which is why I probably never noticed this before.) I was amazed at the amount of dirt and make-up left on my skin after washing my face twice with this cleanser. Too bad too, since I really liked it up until then...

    Use product daily, especially before bed to wash the day off my face. Always leaves my skin feeling and smelling great. I supplement this product with an eye makeup remover.

      Comments about Avalon Organics Vitamin C Hydrating Cleansing Milk, 8.5 fl oz:

      I have melasma very intensely from pregnancy. I have used products ranging from several dollars to $170! While I did not try this to target my melasma, I know that vitamin C is the best ingredient to brighten skin. I have used a few other products from this line and liked them. I was using Aveeno face wash but wanted to try something else. This feels fresh, smells like orange juice, and is so natural. The fact that it smells like a fresh orange is proof enough that this is chock full of vitaminC. While it may not do the best at removing makeup, that does not affect me much since I rarely wear any. However, a nice lather and proper massaging time washing your face will do the trick. As always, use makeup remover for eye makeup. I do tend to switch out products within my beloved brands, (Aveeno, Origins, Lancome) but this is a staple!
      FYI~ I also use the gel formulation. Gel is best in warmer seasons when skin tends to get more oily and sweaty; while the milk is best in colder/dryer seasons bc it is inherently more hydrating.

                Most cleansing gels just dry out my skin and most cleansing milks do not remove my make-up at nigt. I wear foundation/BB cream. However this Vitamin C cleansing milk is splendid. Two pumps removes all my make up in the shower and it does not dry out my skin in fact it makes my skin look soft. The smell is delicious. I pretty much use everything from the Avalon Lavender line but the Vitamin C cleanser is a keeper.

                This product is like washing your face with old-timey cold cream. Except it is not as thick and comes in a pump bottle. If your looking for a product that lathers do not purchase this item. It works okay and cleanses my face but I will not buy again.

                  Comments about Avalon Organics Vitamin C Hydrating Cleansing Milk, 8.5 fl oz:

                  Used alone, this is kind of worthless, because it is not good at removing oil and dirt. If you have oily skin, forget about it -- hot water alone does a better job. I've found that it is OK when used as a face wash following a recent face wash, where you don't have too much new accumulated dirt/oil. For example, washing before bed, a few hours after taking a post-workout shower. The Avalon Refreshing Cleansing Gel, however, is 5-stars. That stuff is epic. This stuff is kind of a joke.

                    I've gone through the gamut of facial cleansers and this is what I have been using for a few years now. I wouldn't change. My skin improved once I started using this and I haven't ever had any irritation from it.
