Anyone remember this old Estee Lauder Face wash (1960-1970's)?

I'm trying to remember the name of an old Estee Lauder Face wash that I used to use during the 1970's. The closest thing to it now that is on the market is the BareMinerals Exfoliating Treatment Cleanser, which is what I now use. When I opened the BareMinerals product to smell it, not only did it look the same, but it also smelled like the Estee Lauder product, which got me thinking about--what was it called?

I keep thinking "Milk Dew", but I don't know if I'm throwing "Youth Dew" into the name--but I think it was "milk ....something" Can't find an Estee sales rep that used the product that long ago to remember the name.

TIA!

It was a milk powder of some sort. Yes, I used it and loved it.

You might be thinking of the Solid Milk Cleansing Grains? I loved the product but used it in the 1980's. I think it was in a green plastic container with a shaker on top. You shook some out onto your hand and mixed it into a paste with water.

I do remember it but could not remember the name either.

Evidently this product has quite a fan base. I looked it up on the internet, and websites are full of people pleading for the product to come back! I used it, and loved it as well.

That name sounds familiar. That is definitely how it was used. Thanks for the inputs, all!

I used to use that every morning. Powdered milk, corn meal and some other stuff. Loved it.

I loved Estee Lauder Milk Cleansing Grains and was so disappointed when they discontinued it. I'd love to find a similar product.

Was it Swiss Milk Extract or something like that? I think I remember a white cleanser many years ago.
