L'Oreal Micellar Solution | Review


Since using up my Bioderma remover, I have been looking for a more purse friendly and readily available product to use instead.

To use the 3-in-1 purifying micellar solution from L'Oreal, I just pop a bit on a cotton round and wipe over my skin. It removes foundation, blusher and eyebrows really well, but it struggles with mascara. I don't wear waterproof but it takes some work to get it off.

It is really easy to over saturate your cotton round which is a nightmare as it just goes into your eyes. The first time I used this I remember shouting to James "it's burning my eyes and it smells like babies", which is still my impression of it. For a first cleanse it does the job, and I will use it all because I am one of those weirdos who loves seeing empty product bottles, but I just don't like it as much as my Bioderma one.

This is £4.99 from Boots for 200ml which is a great price, and I would recommend it if you haven't tried a micellar water before. It does say that it is hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin, but try not to get too much in your actual eyes. It burns.
