In AW2020, Albion changes Excia AL Renewing line to “Excia”.
Albion Excia AL Renewing Extra Rich MilkSV is switched to Albion Excia Radiance Renew Milk now.
Note: Albion’s “milk” are oily product, if you are looking for not oily items, or an oil prone, this maker of Albion, I mean whole of Albion items are not for you.
As the previous formula, there are “Albion Excia Radiance Renew Rich Milk” for normal – combination skin, and “Albion Excia Radiance Renew Extra Rich Milk” for dry skin. I bought a kit of Extra Rich. Let me share how I felt.
Generally to say, I felt it changed the scent, and I like it more.
I compared the current and previous, please check it!

Way to use & general review
Difference of the lines
Albion says Exage is for the people need more moist, Infiness is for the people wants to have supple skin. Excia is the most expensive line, and for the people wanna have supple and shining from inner. OK OK. In my opinion, you can choose them by the perfume.
If you like floral, Exage is for you, and if you do not like floral perfume, Infiness or Excia are for you. Current Excia reminds me about woods, and more herbal than used to be. Generally Infiness is more quicker to be absorbed, and I feel it pulls my face line. I describe in the comparison on the mid of the article.
Way to use
Anyway, the way of Albion steps are unique. Wash-MILK- Lotion. So, please apply this product after your face wash. (See also: Albion Skincare Method)
Beauty consultants in Albion are recommending to apply this by cotton, and 3 pushes per a once. But when you are feeling too dry, they say try more — 6 pushes. Spread on your face, and wrap by your hands. And after that, apply lotion.
My way is a little bit different. In morning, I am too busy (maybe you too!), I do not use this product. After your bath, what will you do? Maybe you will use hair drier. I dislike driers make my face dry too. So, before using hair driers, I apply this milk on my face to protect from drier’s heat, and dry wind. I do not need to use pretty much. You can see the quantity I apply in this picture.
Generally to say
After that my night routine starts. I do not use cottons to apply. I guess hands are enough. I take a little bit more on my hands and wrap my face. I feel it takes time to fix my skin, I apply lotion masks just before I go to bed.
My skin is well moisturized 🙂
How do you feel when your skin is so drier? I feel irritation and as if my skin was chipped thiner, I mean it is not so much big pain, but it is far from comfortable. It is a sign of my skin is turning to sensitive, I often have super big trouble with my skin condition in early Spring. I need to change my routine to the items for “heavy” products. I rushed Albion counter to buy this milk.
When my skin condition is super bad, I feel stinging by this milk, what I can do is “wait”. It is really moody.

Comparing with Excia Renewing Extra Rich Milk SV
I found I kept a small size of Excia AL Radiance Extra Rich Milk SV, aka previous formula.
Excia AL Radiance Extra Rich Milk SV is more runny than current Excia Radiance Renew Extra Rich Milk.
Afterward of applying, I feel there are no big difference of the texture of my face. Also, I like the scent of current.
Albion Excia AL Renewing scent is somehow scent of Almond, but artificial. I liked it among Albion products. Current is bitter and herbal scent, and I feel it is more natural, and I love it.
Comparing with Excia Radiance Renew Extra Rich Milk and Excia Radiance Renew Rich Milk
Second comparison is comparing Extra Rich Milk (for dry skin) and Rich Milk (for normal – combination skin).
In Extra Rich Milk side, I pushed for 3 times, as they recommend, and all of the package for the Rich Milk side.
Both textures are soft and absorbed nicely. The difference is slightly, I thought. I admit Rich Milk side is slightly light. There are no significant difference, I am sure.
When you feel Extra Rich Milk is too much, try to use less quantity than you used. When you feel Rich Milk is too light, I recommend to use more quantity.
Comparing with Infinesse Derma Pump Milk
I found I have one sample of Infinesse Derma Pump Milk. In Extra Rich Milk side, I pushed for 3 times, as they recommend, and all of the package for the Infinesse side.
I felt Extra Rich Milk side is more moisturised, but Infinesse side is quicker to be absorbed. Also, I felt Infinesse side is pulling my face line up, “I felt” means I did not see the significant difference in my eyes, but I felt my cheeks are pulling up.
Also I felt Infinesse side is more quicker to be smoother, and Excia side is more oilier. I never say I recommend Infinesse for oil prone.
When you feel Excia Radiance Renew Milks are too much, even with few quantity, I am afraid of Albion products are too oily for you, but when you try other products before giving Albion milks up, I recommend you to use Infinesse with hesitating.

Comparing with Exage Moist Advance Milk #3
I am betting they are going to change the formula of Excia Ambeage or Exage in AW2021, but I don’t know right now. Here is a comparison of Exage Moist Advance Milk #3.
Both are moisturising my skin pretty well, but I LIKE the scent of Excia more than Exage.

Comparing with Cosme Decorte AQ Emulsion Extra Rich
Here is a comparison with Cosme Decorte AQ Emulsion Extra Rich.
Let me use a cotton, as their recommend.
Both are almost the same oiliness. For combination skin, both are too much for you, I guess.
I like both perfume. New Excia is good scent for me. Both are stronger, if you are an perfume prone, they are not for you.
I like both. When you are not satisfied with this Excia, I don’ t think you will satisfy with AQ. Choose others.

Comparing with Ignis Moisturizing Premium Milk
I feel Excia side was slightly oilier than Ignis side. If you want to buy something more affordable price, I suggest this Ignis for you.

Comparing with Cosme Decorte Lift Dimension Plump + Firm Emulsion
Both moisturised my skin well. On the price zone, guess Cosme Decorte Lift Dimension is more affordable and attractive.
