L’Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

10 May

If you’ve read my blog previously then you’ll know that I loved the Melvita micellar water, but I decided that I wanted to try some others as this was the only one that I’d tried.  I bought this L’Oreal micellar solution last month as with skin care products I like to use them for a while before reviewing them.  If your new to micellar waters they are a solution made of water with tiny particles of oil suspended in it which quickly absorbs make-up but is gentle on your skin.

L’Oreal claims that this is a 3 in 1 products that; 1) Dissolves make-up, 2) Unclogs pores and removes impurities and 3) Tones and soothes skin.  It is also suitable for sensitive skin.

It comes in a 200ml bottle which has a square shape which I quite like.  The lid feel secure and I haven’t had any problems with it leaking if I’ve been taking it with me somewhere.  It’s really easy to use, just pore a little onto a cotton pad and wipe over your face.  I really like it because it’s super quick and easy to take your make-up off at night.

I find that it removes make-up really well, it does take a couple of swipes to remove waterproof mascara, but I don’t really see that as a negative to be honest.  I think that it unclogs pore/removes impurities a little but not as much as the Superdrug Hot Cloth Cleanser.  As for the last claim I do find that it leaves my skin feeling toned.

Overall I really like and would definitely buy it again but I think I might try some other brands of micellar waters too; just so I can see what other brands are like.  This retails at about £4.99 in Boots and Superdrug.

Have you tried the L’Oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution?  If you have what did you think of it?  Or do you have any other micellar waters that you recommend that I try?

 

Melvita Fresh Micellar Water*

Micellar water seem to be everywhere at the moment and I’m probably a little late to the bandwagon but oh well.  A micellar water has tiny oil molecules suspended in the water meaning that they are gentle on skin but are able to quickly absorb any dirt and make-up.

This was one of the items that I got when I went to the Fabb event in Glasgow and I’ve been using it a lot since, hence why the bottle isn’t completely full in the picture.  I forgot to take pictures of it when it was full and it definitely has a lot less in it now!  The Melvita Micellar water aims to remove makeup, cleanse skin as well as tone; I find that it does all three.  I have to admit that I love products that do more than just one thing.  It has a slight rose scent as it uses petals from wild roses that are grown at high altitudes.  The fragrance isn’t overly strong and I find that the scent doesn’t last on skin however if your not a fan of fragranced products the this might not be for you.  The Melvita Micellar water is also organic and not tested on animals.

I find that the best way to use this is to pour a little onto a cotton wool pad and then wipe over skin.  I find that to remove mascara it’s best to hold the cotton wool pad over the eye for a few seconds before wiping the mascara off.    I find that this micellar water helps to remove even waterproof mascara without being harsh on skin and full of chemicals.

Overall I really like this micellar water and would consider purchasing it again although I think I’ll probably try some other to see what I think of them too.  This cost £15.50 for 200ml bottle, the one featured here is a sample size and is 35lm.
