If you are an avid Guinot user, then you may have heard that Guinot has enhanced and improved their milk cleansers.  If you have never used Guinot, then you are in for a treat!  Both the Lait Hydra Fraîcheur and the Lait Hydra Confort cleansers have been completely reformulated to create two totally different cleansers.  Although keeping their familiar names, the cleansers are not the same otherwise.  The big question is, why did Guinot change their cleansers?   Many clients adored the old cleansers and may be a little confused.  Guinot strives to stay ahead of the forever-changing technology and trends of the skin care world.  While the old cleansers were great, Guinot said, “Why not make them even better?”


In the past cleansers have been used for one purpose, to clean the skin.  They were applied and then rinsed off moments later.  This is where the new cleansers differ, now they are being used as a treatment rather than just cleansing the skin.  Yes, you still get that great clean feeling, but now the ingredients are able to penetrate deeper into the skin, leaving behind some great benefits!



The Lait Hydra  Fraîcheur, which used to be pink in color, is now a refreshing blue tone.  This cleanser is also referred to as “Refreshing Cleansing Milk”.  The new blue color is much more fitting, as the main ingredient is aloe vera extract. It is a great cleanser for all skin types and now is even better at removing stubborn makeup.  The consistency is a milky gel, which provides a great mixture of hydration and cleansing. It is also gentle enough to use on eyes and lips to remove waterproof makeup!  It’s key ingredients are aloe vera and cucumber extract, these help to moisturize and refresh the skin. This cleanser works well with the conjoining toner, Lotion Hydra Fraîcheur. Pairing the two will help with makeup removal and toning and remineralising the skin.


The other cleanser that Guinot has reformulated is the Lait Hydra Confort. This cleanser can also be referred to as the “Comforting Cleansing Milk” . It has a creamy milk consistency, and is great for dry or dehydrated skin. With the new formulation, this cleanser is now pink. It contains shea oil to nourish and soothe the skin, while the fig extract moisturizes and reduces water loss in the skin. This formula also includes Liposkin which is a rich vegetable butter with a soft and creamy texture for smooth application. Pair with the toner, Lotion Hydra Confort, to prevent dryness and protect the skin from free radicals.


Whether you have been a long time fan of the old cleansers, or are considering trying something completely new, give one of these cleansers a try, they would be a great addition to your skin regimen!
