** review: soap and glory clean mary cleansing milk

Last Christmas I got this cleanser as part of the Soap and Glory Hat Box. 
Its described this as....
"A luxury complexion purifier, fit for a Clean! Made in Switzerland then imported over, Clean Mary dissolves deep down dirt, purifies your pores and smoothes away dead skin cells, leaving your face fresh, bright and fabulously clean." 

Well, I'm sorry to say that I just don't like this stuff, at all.

So why don't I like it?
OK, I know its described as "milk", but this isn't actually far from the consistency of actual milk, its so runny and sloppy, that it comes out of the tube way too fast. I even started to wonder to whether this was a bad batch or something?!?
Once applied to my skin, it just slips around its so thin and I don't feel I can work it into my skin because of this. It definitely does not feel luxurious!
I also found that it slightly stings my lips, I'm not sure whats in it that makes this happen, but it sure isn't pleasant!
I also like to be able to remove my eye make up and cleanse my skin in one step, so this also adds to the 'thumbs downiness" of this particular cleanser.
After use, my skin doesn't feel as clean as I believe it ought to, and I was really disappointed with the quality of this stuff.

I have to say that I do like most of the Soap and Glory range, but just not this particular product. So, sorry Mary but you get a total thumbs down from me, mainly because of the consistency, I just don't feel like its cleaning my skin because its so thin.
I couldn't actually believe it when I saw that this has 5 out of 5 stars on the boots website, as I just think its absolute pants!
