SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser
5.0
Created with Sketch.

12 hours ago

I have used many micellar water, mainly drugstore brands . Some more expensive , some cheaper than this. Some European, some Japanese and Asian Brands. I find the three best to be Biore, bioderma and this. For waterproof mascara I need more this won’t really remove (same for the rest).


SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover & Cleanser

This has been the first and only micellar water I've used so I can't compare it to others, but as a product in its own right it's been downright amazing. I do not wear heavy makeup, usually just foundation, blush and brow pencil. This cleanses them off so quickly and thoroughly that I would imagine it would be effective for heavier makeup too. I have had no irritation from this whatsoever, and am also glad it's not drying on my dry skin, it actually feels soothing. It leaves skin feeling incredibly smooth. I have read that micellar water can leave residue on skin, but this smooth feeling honestly doesn't feel like coating from the product to me. It never broke me out, but I double cleanse anyway because I've just always done that. I did skip double cleansing twice in December when I got home really late and still woke up with perfect skin with not the tiniest breakout in sight. I use it on no makeup days as well and find it cleanses very well that way too. I never tried it on my eyes though. I have very sensitive eyes and don't wear mascara or other eye makeup regularly, and when I do, I just cleanse with sesame oil or vaseline followed by a gentle foam wash because that's the one method I know doesn't cause me problems and I'd rather not risk it. That said, this micellar water does get near my eyes on accident sometimes and it causes no problem whatsoever. Given how effortlessly it removes the rest of my makeup, it would probably work on mascara too. I don't detect a scent. The bottle is fine, it's easy to dispense without losing product, the cap is secure. It's affordable and lasts a while. It comes in travel size too, which is always a plus. I'm most amazed by the calming and smoothing effect. Whatever ingredient is responsible for it, can they please just put it in everything?

SkinActive Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream - Normal/Combo Skin

This product has a me torn because it has some serious pros and cons. Pros: nice gel texture, cute packaging, doesn’t break me out, good feel on the skin Cons: STINKS like old lady perfume (just why), packaging while cute is very cheap (lid broke on mine), and cannot be work under make up! The last con is why I will not be repurchasing. I bought this mostly as a day moisturizer for under my makeup but if I try to put cc cream on top of it it pills and balls up horribly and my skin looks like it’s peeling! Miss for me, unfortunately because it is so affordable and I do like the texture.
