Glossier’s new skincare product promises to dissolve dirt and make-up with ease. Here’s what happened when Stylist tried it…
When Glossier launches its Milky Jelly Cleanser, the product became an instant hit. The bestselling cleanser, which is great for dissolving light make-up, rapidly gained a stellar reputation in the beauty hall of fame and is often praised for its gently formula.
And now, it has a new younger sibling: Glossier’s Milky Oil.
Milky Oil, which costs just £10, is a waterproof make-up remover that comes in a clever duo-formula. It combines the gentle cleansing properties of micellar water with a weightless oil that promises to dissolve make-up.
It also maintains a lot of the same qualities as Milky Jelly Cleanser. Milky Oil is formulated with comfrey root extract and pro-vitamin B5 to leave skin feeling fresh without any greasy residue.
To use Milky Oil, simply shake the bottle to mix the dirt-attracting micelles and conditioning oil. This will create an emulsified texture that claims to melt away long-wearing and waterproof make-up without needing to tug or rub your skin.

“I used to be a fan of a double cleanse but recently I’ve been skipping it and just going in for one hardier cleanser that does it all,” says Lucy, “but the arrival of Milky Oil forced me back into my old ways and I used this to first dissolve remnants of SPF, mascara and foundation before my next cleanse.”
She continues: “It felt super gentle on my skin, didn’t sting my eyes and - importantly - didn’t leave any residue or that horrible film that most oily formulas tend to. I loved the bottle was 100ml so it’s suitable for slotting into my hand luggage on flights and it has a targeted nozzle which means it’s easy to squirt onto a cotton pad without using too much.
So, if you’re rubbish at taking off your make-up, Milky Oil might just become a new skincare staple.
