Georgette Klinger: Coconut Cleansing Milk + Collagen & Elastin Moisturizer

I will admit I had never heard of Georgette Klinger until I was sent these two items for review. Georgette Klinger opens a salon in Czechoslovakia but flees a year later when Germany invades. She then opens a store in New York in 1941 making products in her kitchen. By 1982 she has a string of salons. Sometimes there’s always this fun story behind a line.

The Coconut Cleansing Milk has become a quick favorite of mine. Details per Georgette Klinger:

Purify and deeply clean your skin of impurities — including pollution, dirt, and makeup — with this luxurious cleansing milk, rich in Coconut Oil and Coconut Extracts to prevent drying out or irritating your complexion. Perfect for all skin types, this luscious facial cleanser incorporates anti-inflammatory Grape and Cucumber Extracts to soothe as you wash your face for skin that looks and feels healthy, hydrated, and refreshed.

Directions Twice daily, apply cleanser with fingers to your face and neck, working in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly but gently with lukewarm water. Follow with a toner to complete the cleansing process.

Ingredients

Deionized Water, Glycerin, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Peg-8 Laurate, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Extract, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin & Laureth-7, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Hexylene Glycol, Triethanolamine, Fragrance

 

The Coconut Cleansing Milk has a dreamy milky gel texture. It also has the most lovely light and natural coconut scent. Nothing too strong or fake. No sunscreen smelling coconut here. I love it. This is a hydrating gel cream cleanser, it will be gentle and not strip the skin. I love this as a morning cleanse or second cleanse at night. I wouldn’t use this to remove your makeup. It’s not that strong. I feel that’s also not it’s purpose.

This replaced my Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser with one use. It has the same slightly creamy milky jelly feel, without that annoying strong scent. This one is a touch more hydrating and less gel like. I love the simple ingredients–coconut oil and extract, grape extract, cucumber & glycerin. I love this cleanser to death. It’s quite easily something I would repurchase time and time again. I think I would even call this a hero product cleanser, it’s that good. If you love gel cleansers and creamy cleansers I would check this out. It gives the hydrating feel of a creamy cleanser while being slightly lighter in texture like a gel. As a bonus it’s also super affordable at $22.

The Collagen & Elastin Moisturizer is a best seller. Details per Georgette Klinger:

Firm, tighten and tone, while minimizing the look of fine lines with this innovative, lightweight moisturizer that provides the hydrating qualities of a cream in a fast absorbing lotion. Advanced Collagen and Elastin blend penetrates to rebuild, strengthen and increase elasticity, visibly restoring skins resiliency to deliver a firmer tone and texture. Olive Oil replenishes lost lipids and rejuvenates skin while Squalane strengthens the barrier to minimize moisture loss and reduce damaging dehydration, improving tone and texture for a glowing complexion.

Ingredients

Deionized Water, Soluble Collagen, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Stearic Acid, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrolyzed Elastin, Squalene, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Propanediol, Cetyl Alcohol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Hexylene Glycol, Fragrance

 

I love that this comes packaged in an airless pump. This cream has a medium weight texture. It’s got a light almost non-discernible scent. It’s hydrating without being too heavy and greasy. I think this does the job of hydrating well. It’s very creamy and not my usual preference in texture. There’s just something about it that feels very basic, easy, it won’t irritate anyone (for the most part as there’s always a possibility). It was nothing spectacular for me. I think it will suit many and it just wasn’t for me. I’ll use it on my neck and such but it wouldn’t be a purchase for me when empty.
