What I say about them..
The texture of the cleansing milk is creamy and doesn't feel sticky, and it can remove dirts on my face really well. Both of the products hydrate my face so much and don't make my face oily, also I feel fresh. But I really can't stand the smell of the cucumber, because the smell is pretty strong.
I almost swear by both of these products but I suddenly I realize that I got many tiny bumps all over my face.

Pros:
1. Both of them can remove make ups or dirts
2. Affordable price
3. I like the flip cap, easy to open the bottle
4. They both come in very big bottle, it will last for two or three months

Cons:
1. They smell sucks, I never like cucumber, so yea.. The worse thing is the smell is pretty strong and stands for long time.
2. Many pimples start to appear in my face after I used these products for 3-4 days.

I had stopped using them, its harder to reduce the pimples than buying new cleanser, right? It seems that both of them don't suit my skin. I don't think that the products are bad, they may work good on you though.

Rating: 2/5
Price: IDR 79.000 each (USD 8.60)
Size: 250ml
Repurchase: Will I repurchase more pimples? NO, thank you.
