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?


Superdrug Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser

11 Apr

Before this I had never tried hot cloth cleansers, to be honest I was never overly interested in skincare products until I turned 21 last month and I know it’s not really old, but I started to think it was time to really look for some good skincare products.  I saw this in Superdrug when I was buying a micellar water and decided to pick it up as well.

All of Superdrug’s own brand products are not tested on animals and this one is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans. Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Hot Cloth Cleanser claims to remove makeup and impurities while gently exfoliating and even out skin tone.  It does this as it contains kiwi extracts, mulberry extracts and cocoa butter.  It comes in a box and also contains a muslin cloth which I think is amazing for the  price.

I wasn’t sure if was going to like this as it comes out really thick and creamy and I thought it might leave my skin oily, but it doesn’t!  To use this you just rub into the skin on your face and neck, rinse the muslin cloth under hot water – wrining out the excess and then simply wipe off.  I find that this really helps to remove any makeup and leaves skin feeling super clean and super soft.  I find that when I use this I don’t need to use a moisturiser, however if you have dry skin then you might wish to use a moisturiser.  I also feel that this has really helped improve the appearance of my skin.

It’s recommended that you use it with other products in their Naturally Radiant range and considering how much I love this I think I will definitely be trying the rest of the range which includes a cream, face mask, radiance balm, night cream, a polish scrub and a 2 in 1 moisturiser and serum.

Overall I would really recommend this product, I don’t have any other hot cloth cleansers to compare it to but I really don’t think you’ll find one to rival this especially for the price.  It can be purchased from Superdrug in store and online for £5.99 and is currently half price at £2.98.  All the other Naturally Radiant products are half price too.

Have you tried hot cloth cleansers, what did you think of them?  Have you tried any of the products in Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant range?
