LOreal Micellar Water Review

LOreal Micellar Water Review

I've tried a few different micellar waters in the market, and I must say that this is the best when it comes to removing makeup, price point, and skincare benefits combined. This is my new holygrail makeup remover.

There are two types of L'Oreal Micellar Water and as I've read, the pink one is for dry skin and this blue one is more suited for oily and sensitive skin. I've actually had problems with my previous micellar water -- or probably the brand itself. I noticed that whenever I used that product, I'd get a breakout the following day. And that is one thing I've never experienced while using L'Oreal Micellar Water. I could actually attest that it's helped my skin in clearing up my acne.

It is hypoallergenic, water-based, and it instantly removes makeup while cleansing my face. I use about two to three cotton pads depending on how much product I wore that day and it basically removes everything. It can remove my base makeup, my ABH dip brow pomade, my Stila eyeliner which I adore, and all of my long-lasting lipsticks. Oh, and it doesn't leave an after-taste unlike other makeup removers when I use it on my lips. This product leaves my face feeling moisturized and "refreshed" as the name suggests. 

One thing I found it had trouble removing would be mascara. I always use oil-based removers for that anyway, so it wasn't a big deal. Even though it can't fully remove my mascara, I'm glad that this micellar water never stung my eye. It's really, really gentle.

This product just replaced Bifesta in my heart. L'Oreal Micellar Water can remove all of my makeup without breaking me out, and it's more affordable too compared to Bifesta. This is now the number one micellar water on my list and I highly recommend this for oily skin.

This retails for PHP 225 and is widely available at all leading department stores.
