Over the last few months it seams that micellar solution based cleansers have taken the beauty world by storm, starting with the much raved about Bioderma. It feels that every beauty blogger has tried the famous Bioderma or some other amazing dupe. Sadly it has to be said, that I've not been fortunate as to getting my beauty mitts on a bottle of my own. Although I do have a secret sample of it, and you'll understand exactly what I mean if you've read my last post all about the Escentual Micellar Blind Trail which you can read here.
I've noticed that in recent beauty blogger chats the L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution has been popping up in various tweets, with a lot of you loving it and an even more amount of you wanting to try it and see what all the fuss is about. I have been using this everyday for the last month now and thought it was the perfect time to get my thoughts up about it, which will hopefully help you make a decision as to whether you need this bottle sitting on your beauty shelves or not. I for one am a big fan of this water based cleanser/makeup remover from L'Oreal and here's why....
The L'Oreal Micellar Solution makes taking off all you makeup a complete dream and completly fuss free. If your a beauty who finds it hard to get into a routine of removing your makeup before bed, then this the solution to all your troubles and it works far better than any makeup wipe I've used and it only take a few little squirts onto a cotton pad to melt away all your makeup. I find that it takes me around two to three cotton pads to take away all traces of my makeup. What is really fantastic about this water based solution is that it removes your eye makeup without smearing it all around your face! Whenever I use a makeup wipe, within seconds I find that I have a dirty mixture of eyeliner, mascara and eye shadow running down my face and it always makes me cringe to think that I'm rubbing this into my face whist removing my makeup. To be honest I'm not really sure how the micellar solution works all its magic and takes away even waterproof makeup so easy and without any smears - And the fact that it feels and looks just like water is slightly baffling to me. But what I do know that a micellar water has small microscopic oil molecules which enables it to remove any makeup, pretty smart I think? All micellar waters including Bioderma work in this way and all claim to have the same effects and I really do think that this one from L'Oreal is up there with the best of the bunch - I've been putting some of the best french micellar waters to the test recently and can easily say that this one from L'Oreal gives all the more pricey ones some serious competition. As you can see from the above pictures the L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution claims to do three things:
One: Dissolve all your makeup
Two: Unclog pores and remove impurities
Three: Tones and Soothes Skin
After trying and testing this out I can honestly say that I can put a big fat tick against these three claims from L'Oreal. My makeup is removed in an instant, even stubborn lipstick stains are no trouble for this cleanser. I find that my skin feels and looks a lot brighter and as I am one who suffers from a bit of an oily t-zone, I find that this solution helps to balance out the oils in my skin pretty well and my skin feels ever so clean after using it. As for soothing and toning your skin, it also works wonders. The L'Oreal micellar solution is completely alcohol and perfume free which means there is none of that stinging feeling on your face afterwards - Which makes it perfect for those of you who have sensitive skin. I do find that my face can feel a little dry after using this, but that's nothing that your evening moisturiser wont fix!
Overall I love this micellar solution from L'Oreal and can't fault it in anyway. What I really love about this is that is so widely available to us beauty and it has such a fantastic price tag. I bought mine from Boots for £4.99, but I've heard and seen that all sorts of shops including supermakets such as Tesco and Asda have this on offer right now. I can't recommend this product enough beauties and would love to all to ditch your makeup wipes and switch to this - Not only will your skin be thanking you for it, but this product will last you for ages too as a little really does go along way.
Have you tried this water based cleanser from L'Oreal yet beauties? And how do you think it compares to all the other micellar solutions out there? I would love to know your thoughts.
Lot's of Love
