Escentual Micellar Blind Trial

Hello lovely ladies, I hope your all having a fantastic weekend! Last week I was invited by Escentual to take part in a blind testing trail of some of the top French Micellar waters that you can get hold off. I'm sure your all aware that micellar water cleansers have taken the beauty world by storm now and it seams to be everyone's favourite method to remove makeup and any other inpurities in our skin. With so many fantastic brands out there having their own versions of mincellar water, it can be difficult for us beauties to choose the right ones that will work best for our skin and of course to know which one really does come out on top.

Escentual have set myself and 99 other beauty bloggers the task of trying and testing some of the most well known micellar waters that you can get your hands on. However we are all going in blind as each sample of micellar water has been placed into seven different droplet bottles, labeled from A-G so we really have no idea which brand of micellar water has been placed in each one. Not only do we have the task of deciding our favourite one over the course of two weeks, but we also have to rate each sample on a number of different things -

Cleansing power - How well it removes makeup
Pleasure of use - Best texture and best scent
Reactivity - Best comfort/colour
Moisture balance - Best Moisturiser
Bottom Line - Would you use it again?
Favourite - Best overall sample

Once the two weeks are up, each beauty blogger that's participating in the micellar blind trail shall fill in an online survey on the Escentual site to see which micellar water comes out on top. 

As well as completing the survey for Ecentual, I thought that this would be a fantastic opportunity to share with you all how I get on with each sample and how I rate each one. I might even give it ago at guessing which sample is which, but seeing as I've never tried any of the products in each sample this may be difficult. The products in each sample are as follows (in no particular order):

Dior Instant Cleansing Water
Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water
Caudalie Makeup Remover Cleansing Water
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micelle Solution
Vichy Purete Thermale Cleansing Micellar Solution
Avenue Micellar Lotion Cleansing Water 
La Roche Posay Micellar Solution

I'm really excited to be taking part in this blind trail as so often (myself included) we can easily buy into a brand because of the hype going on around it. This trail gives me the chance to test each of these famous micellar waters on an even level, so I can really try and test each one without making any prejudgements. I for one can't wait to find out the results and to find which brand I find myself most drawn too. In two weeks time I will be sure to let you all know just how I get on and do a mini review for you all on each one. Hopefully this will help you beauties make a decision on which micellar water will work best for you.

Have you been loving any of the micellar waters listed above? I would love to know your thoughts.

Lot's of Love

  4. I am doing this trial too! Have you smelt Sample A? It does not smell nice. Look forward to seeing your result!

  5. ' Satanic Ritual - Decorate the space with human sacrifice, goblets of blood, pentagrams, and things draped in black. Unfortunately for me as an addict, I need my crime fix. That is the new craze in on the internet gaming, and numerous girls and teens are possessing a blast.

  6. In that case, this kind of question should not be taken from any show
    telecasted in specific country. You must definitely be planning to make it special and memorable by
    keeping a good theme, ordering the best food and choosing
    the best games. The decline of the East side blues
    scene was disheartening, but, it also gave rise to the need for a
    fresh start, which came in the form of the next blues-only venue, Antone's, founded by the late Clifford Antone, during the summer of 1975.

  7. Some were practical, of course, but others were psychological and emotional.
    Brazenhead is a great place to go with your family or for a
    business lunch or dinner, but if you are looking for a party atmosphere, this isn't it. Ask your local club to run this for you.

  8. The only hurdle to accessing this is of course human limitations and the
    fact that the brain does not function solely as a learning tool
    for the human being. Local country clubs are offering trivia fun for as
    little as forty dollars per couple. Ask your local club to run this for you.

  9. I'm gone to say to my little brother, that he should also go to see this blog on regular basis to obtain updated from most recent information.

  10. I can't wait to see the results from this! I always use Bioderma.

  11. This is actually a brilliant idea! I love it and I want to try haha xxx

  12. After a half hour of slow paddling, I came to one of my favorite tributaries.
    About the time I woke him up it dawned on me that he was
    having an allergic reaction to the medication. From picking up shells and walking along the shore to boogie boarding out
    in the ocean water shoes are made to stay on the feet and keep them

  13. At this time it appears like BlogEngine is the top
    blogging platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

    Look into my web page Tattoo removal cream reviews

  14. Wow!! That is REALLY cool that you get to participate in that. I'm jealous! Sounds like a blast!

  15. Clever idea! I can't wait for the results. Micellar water isn't even visible here yet. I'm wondering when the Philippines will catch up with this fad..

  16. I saw another blogger doing this and I think it's a super great idea! I really cannot wait to see what comes out on top!
