I bought this when I visited Canada, because I wanted to try something other than Bioderma. I must say this works just as well as my Bioderma and that pump dispenser package is an awesome idea. It it very gentle and has not irritated my skin at all. When I`ve read reviews of this and other micellar water products I find that many people expect these products to remove all make up or use it as the first step in make-up removal. I don`t think this is the scope of these waters: they`re supposed to be used to wipe traces of make-up after cleansing wipes, to correct errors when applying make-up, or as a morning cleanser. For these purposes I`m happy with Reversa. I have pretty oily skin and first thing in the morning I pump some cold micellar water (I keep mine in the fridge) on a cotton pad and wipe my face. I can see how well it cleans because that pad becomes yellow and I know all the excess sebum has been removed. Wish I could repurchase, but unfortunately it`s not available in my country.

Received a free sample of this but am not a fan. It says it is safe for face and eyes but maybe my eyes are too sensitive because this really irritated them and didn't remove all product from my face easily either. I don't wear all that much makeup so it was disappointing compared to other micellar waters I've used. I wish some of the other skincare and cosmetic companies would do is provide generous samples like Reversa does. It's too bad I just don't care for the few products I've tried by this company. It's not terrible, just not suited for my skin or my skin care needs.

Update, I broke the bottle trying to squeeze the micellar water out and thank goodness because it got in my eye and despite flushing my eye with water for a really long time it took hours before the discomfort subsided.

I love the bottle for this, it's similar to the ones used by nail techs to dispense acetone. You push down on the top and cleanser comes out without any spillage unlike most containers for other brands of micellar cleansers. I plan on putting my other micellar cleanser in this when I finish with the Reversa.

I didn't find it cleaned all that well and I had to go over the remains with my toner. I used it my usual way with a damp Body Shop Face Flannel to control the amount coming out. I hate the wastage of using cotton pads. It is very gentle so those that have sensitive skin can use it, it's mild enough but did not take off my BB cream and Japanese SS very well.

I might try this for eye make up only for something gentle to use but I don't totally write off this cleanser as I can also use it as a toner to remove all traces of my cleansing oil. It doesn't compare to Bioderma but is easy to find in a major drugstore in Canada.

Got this on sale at 16$ but I will pay the 23$ (in Canada) that it costs because it's really good. My skin is great and I have been using this as a first step makeup remover and face rinse-free cleanser. Great stuff.

I splurged on a moisturizer set that included a 100 ml (3.5 fl oz) sample of this which worked out really well as I'd been looking for a toner but couldn't find one I liked. It's been 2 weeks and I'm loving it. It acts as a toner that is gentle enough for me to swab around my eyes so I can keep the eye area oil free to prolong the life of my lash extensions. This works well enough to remove any makeup and dirt my cleanser missed, yet my skin feels nice and comfortable afterwards. I even use this mid-day to do a quick clean and usually don't feel the need to moisturizer afterwards. Nothing magical here, just clean comfortable skin which is what a toner should do.

I have somewhat sensitive and problematic skin that seems to be heading into the drier skin category as I get further into my 30s so I've been experimenting a lot, and Reversa's new on my hot list. Especially love the reasonable pricing which makes it a good value purchase, I think this retails at London Drugs for $23. This one's a solid product and if I don't receive it as a gift (I put it on my xmas wishlist), I'll probably purchase it myself. The full size product is packaged with a handy vertical pump that makes dispensing a breeze.
