I was looking for a cleanser suitable for my combination to oily skin (that can also be sensitive and prone to breakouts), when I came across Nutra-Lift Organic Incredible Cleansing Cream with Goat Milk ($20). In addition to goat’s milk, it contains hyaluronic acid, green tea, vitamin E and resveratrol. The goal of this experiment was to keep the breakouts at bay while using a cleanser that gently exfoliated. I had hoped that the lactic acid in this cleanser would do the trick and inquired about the product with Marta and she thought it was worth a try. So I was given the opportunity to test the Nutra-Lift Organic Incredible Cleansing Cream with Goat Milk and write my first review for TIA.

The cleansing cream comes in an 8 oz. bottle, and since you do not need a lot of product to wash your face and neck – no bigger than the size of a dime – it would last a long time. It is moderately thin (but not watery) in consistency with a pearlescent peachy-pink color. The first thing that turned me off was the fragrance. It is hard to describe it except to say that it has an artificial perfumed scent. I actually tried not to smell it when using it.

I used the Nutra-Lift only at night and after approximately five to seven days began to experience a breakout. I got through it figuring that perhaps my skin was getting used to the lactic acid in the cleanser. Once the breakout subsided, it was OK for a few days until the next issue arose – dry, red patches on my forehead, temples and cheeks. I should note that I tried the product on two separate occasions: the first time I tried the Nutra-Lift back in the spring, I was using a retinol product a couple times a week and thought maybe that was the culprit – the two products weren’t compatible. So I stopped using the cleanser for several months and resumed my experiment one month ago; this time I was not using a retinol product. I experienced almost the same results – first a breakout (though not as bad as the first time), then the dry red patches appeared. I could have dealt with the breakout, as it subsided both times; but the dryness and redness persisted so I stopped using the product after using it for almost one month.

Unfortunately, the Nutra-Lift did not work for me. Maybe the lactic acid in the goat’s milk was too much for my skin. In any case, I do not think the Nutra-Lift is a bad product; it just wasn’t for me. I guess my skin is more sensitive than I thought!
