the product is fine. however it's not as good as claimed. it helps you remove the big part of your makeup but doesn't clean deep down. You still have makeup left on your face after using it.The worst part is that you have to put a lot of it to remove the makeup. And I haven't even used with a medium coverage foundation yet. It's nice if you're planning on removing your makeup and wash your face later with a good cleanser but alone it won't do. That said it doesn't dry out your face, and I didn't notice any breakout or burn while using it, it's a good thing.
Excellent! Its cheap and effective at removing face make-up. I have tried it on my waterproof mascara but did not work, but everything else was great; face and lips.
Love this micellar water! I'm lazy at heart and don't want to spend much time on cleaning my face and this stuff is great! It doesn't remove waterproof mascara, but I always use a special 2-phase eye make-up remover for that anyway. For removing TM/foundation/blush/lipstick and the last traces of the eye make-up remover this is perfect! Highly recommended!
I bought this on offer with 1/3 off (£3.33 for 200ml, usual price £4.99) and my first reaction was: I hate the packaging! Not how it looks, it just seems really clumsy - loads of product pours out when you tip it through the hole in the lid and don't even think about trying to remove the lid every time: spillage! I decanted it into another plastic bottle with a much wider top and a screw off lid and I am much happier with this. The product itself is a decent cleanser, I'm not overwhelmed by it so I'm not sure I would have purchased it at full price, also I definitely won't be repurchasing at least until I have tried a cheaper brand of Micellar Water to compare. It's a time-saver definitely but I've found I'm using it more as a second-cleanse product or for a quick swipe over in the morning. I've found it works best smoothed over my skin with a cotton ball to remove the last traces of makeup after using a wash-off cleanser. I like the way my skin feels after using it, but I'm not sure it's a "miracle" product or that it removes any more makeup than would a good toner.
This is not a bad cleanser but it does not give the deep down cleanse it claims for itself. My skin does feel refreshed after I have used it and its good I can use this on my eyes, however I found there was some residue of the makeup I had been wearing when I went back over my face with another cleanser and cotton pad. I also seem to have to use quite a lot of the product so don't think this would last a long time so maybe not that cost effective in the long run!
This cleansing water is great for the price. I've recently finished up my bottle of this as well as my bottle of Bioderma Crealine H20, so I feel that I can adequately compare them. While this micellar does not clean as effectively or as quickly as Bioderma, it is a very nice dupe. They do not have the same ingredient list, so know that you are definitely not getting the same thing. If you are a regular Bioderma user you will notice a few differences about the L'oreal cleansing water. Namely, that it takes more product to get the job done and you have to take quite a few more passes over eye makeup, lipstick and especially long-wearing face products like foundation and concealer. While Bioderma tends to disintegrate makeup on contact with ease, you do need to work with the L'oreal a bit more before makeup will dissolve. This product also stings my eyes a little when removing mascara and eyeliner, whereas Bioderma never causes any irritation whatsoever. Overall, a nice alternative for the price but you aren't getting a dead-on dupe.
I was very surprised at how quickly I ran out of this cleansing water. It took me about 3 1/2 weeks of daily use to use up the bottle (I use it to remove eye makeup and "loosen up" my face makeup before going in with a cleanser in the evenings, and a quick pass over my whole face in the morning) - the same size of Bioderma will take me a good 2 months (longer if I'm being stingy) to finish. As for scents, both the products are technically "unscented" but the L'oreal has a plastic-y smell that's not all that pleasant (but still not incredibly deterring).
I am in the US and purchased my bottle from EChemist. Very cheap (less than $5 will no shipping charges) and useful! I do love this for cleaning up around eye-makeup or lipstick when doing more complicated looks. Overall recommended, but know that your extra $$ won't be wasted if you do want to splurge on Bioderma (because it does work quite a bit better).
My skin was having a massive break out of cystic acne and white heads!.. fed up of trying everything under the sun, i noticed this product on the shelf in superdrug. I am a sucker for anything that says clearer skin etc etc.. after reading a few reviews online i decided to buy it.
How long have you been using it? - around 6 months
Smell - hardly anything
Feels on skin - soothing, calming and refreshing
Any reaction - nothing at all
How does my skin look - cleared my spots up in no time!
Recommend? - 100% yes!
Love this. Works better than wipes at removing make-up in the evening. Leaves my skin feeling fresh and I can even go to bed without moisturising because it doesn't leave my skin feeling dry (and I'm generally a have to moisturise person!) at started using this when my skin was quite bad following a bad reaction to Liz Earle cream and I'm sure it has helped to clear up my spots. They are less red and have shrunk! Very happy with this will definitely be repurchasing.
This is as good as anything at getting off foundation,blush etc, but it's absolutely hopeless for eye makeup.It won't even budge one coat of mascara without effort.On the plus side the ingredients in this are good.Fragrance free,no added irritants.I so wanted it to work for eyes bit it just doesn't.The Garnier 2 in 1 remover is so much better and gets everything off so I'm going back to that.Pity, but this no use for me. .
Really like this. Bought on a whim and it has pretty much replaced my expensive Decleor cleanser and toner. Very economic. Used twice a day with the evening use being a double cleanse and a bottle has lasted me 6 weeks. Often on offer. I also like the 15 second miracle cleansing oil in the same range. Doesn't dry out the skin (either of them) but perhaps the oil would be better for the winter season. Good work L'Oreal.
