I like how it's very gentle! So when removing makeup, it's always my first (but not my only) step. It's exactly how I expected it to be - it's gentle, it's refreshing, and can take out what I feel is most of my makeup. I used to use cold cream but I've switched to this and will probably stick with this for a while.3 months ago
My dermatologist recommended I use micellar water because apparently it's nice and gentle on the skin and she also said it's a nice remover for my makeup. I love using this to remove my eye makeup because it doesn't sting or has a weird sensation. However I don't recommend this for thoroughly removing you entire makeup because it's so gentle and doesn't really remove a thick layer of makeup.3 months ago
I prefer simple micellar water to this as I feel it cleanses more and moves my makeup better. I feel fresher afterwards. This does feel more like water though, so perhaps those who have had bad reactions to other products could try this.
Can over spill with this packaging versus similar products that have more of a "squeeze" bottle. This one just has a simple opening. Not a big deal though, easily mitigated by being a bit more careful.
I usually take my makeup off with wipes, but sometimes, I also use micellar water, and this one in particular is great for removing face, lip, and eye makeup. Plus, it feels really refreshing. After using this, I feel like I don't have to wash my face (but of course, I still do). It doesn't irritate or sting my face, which is good.3 months ago
Much as I know that I can ditch water+cleanser if I jump straight to micellar water, I can't help but wash my face because it's a habit I've built since childhood. But I guess, this double (or even triple) cleansing works to my advantage because L'OREAL Micellar Water ALONE is UNABLE TO THOROUGHLY REMOVE water-proof eyeliner and mascara. So what I do first is to strip off water-proof make up (with a make-up remover on cotton), follow it up with a foaming cleanser, then wipe micellar water on cotton all over my face/neck. Voila! It lifts off traces of foundation and concealer! In summary, it's able to clean make up traces and it leaves the skin moisturized. However, don't count on it much for removing water-proof make up.3 months ago
I use this to partially remove my make-up and it is really, really gentle to the skin. It hydrates my skin and I can really feel that it "cleans up" my face after all the make-up I had. It is effective. I use this before I use my facial cleanser or scrub. Recommended!!!4 months ago
