PROS:
It’s the only micellar cleanser I’ve been able to use without irritation. Others tested: Avène, Nuxe, La Roche-Posay, Bioderma (both the regular and the sensitive ones). It cleans. Doesn’t irritate. Unfragranced, though some scent from the oats and witch-hazel (contains witch-hazel water/hydrosol). Application: poured out onto a cotton-wool pad (or equivalent), then swept over face. Texture: a clear liquid, looks and feels like water. I've used this occasionally in the evenings. Can be used in the mornings too. Or whenever you clean our face, really. Cruelty-free (like all A-Derma products and those from their parent group--Pierre Fabre--and its other brands, ex. Ducray, Galénic, Avène, Klorane).

CONS:
Price? once shipping, customs/import duties, and taxes are factored in. Though it’s cheaper than the aforementioned other micellar waters. Note also that I’m only using this to remove sunscreen plus a teeny amount of finishing powder; not full makeup; and my usual face sunscreens are lightweight ones that remove easily. No promises for heavier-duty cleansing needs.

Price: (France) €10.00-13.00; (North America or c/o e-tailers) US$30.00 for 500 ml. Bought online: several French pharmacies ship to North America, and there’s a few “french cosmetics” type companies in the US that do Canada too. Much of the A-Derma range is available from Canadian drugstores (SDM, LD), though not this micellar water. I’ve seen it in a couple of pharmacies in Québec, so there’s clearly some distribution there. Have a sniff around online and in your real-life shops to see… It is, as you see, massively cheaper to get from France (or elsewhere in Continental Europe), but do bear in mind the shipping costs.
