This solution feels as gentle as water on your skin but acts like a make-up remover, toner and skin soother all in one. Swiftly dissolving all traces of make-up, the 'micellar' solution acts like a purifying magnet on the skin's surface to capture and draw out excess oil and impurities rather than spreading them around your face like some wipes can.
I think in general, many people will probably compare this to the Bioderma, Vichy, La Roche-Posay etc versions of "Micellar Solutions". I have to say, this L'oreal one isn't bad. Removes makeup well, though had trouble removing all of my waterproof eye makeup, other waterproof makeup i.e. foundation etc was removed really well. I would say this compares well to other more expensive Micellar Solutions and at £3.33 for 200ml it is a real bargain. It left my skin clean without feeling dry, and has not broken me out at all.
Overall, this is a great cleansing water, and for those that hasn't tried this type of cleansing water before, this is definitely the brand to try first as it removes makeup really well and is inexpensive. However, for those that have tried other brands, and particularly for me who've been using Bioderma, I've found that there is just something about L'oreal's micellar solution that just doesn't cut it for me. I can't seem to put my finger on what it is, but for me, the Bioderma micellar solution beats the L'oreal one by a very tiny bit. Saying that, I can see myself buying and using L'oreal's one just because I can literally walk down the road and buy it from Boots!
How to use:
Apply using a cotton wool pad onto dry skin. Hold over lashes, lids and lips for a few seconds then just sweep away. No need to rinse or rub.
Price: £3.33 for 200ml
