Beauty Swap: Micellar Water



L'oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution 200ml £4.99 . Used to dissolve make-up, unclog pores and remove impurities while toning and soothing the skin.

For functionality this water is great for removing makeup, especially heavy eye makeup. It's easy to use and very quick so its great after a night out. I use it to take off heavy make up before I cleanse so its not left on my eye anyway. What I did notice was that it left my eyes feeling tight and red which was a shame as its meant to be suitable for sensitive skin . I didn't love the pourer as it seems to release a lot of fluid at once so I felt that I was wasting a lot of product for each use.





Melvita Fresh Micellar Water 200ml £15.00. Also a 3 in 1 formula used to dissolve make-up whilst cleansing and toning the skin.

It contains Wild Rose Petal Extract and Rose Floral Water to moisturise and prevent drying of the skin. Functionality is the same, this is great to remove make-up before washing your face. This might not be what it is used for but I jut use it to remove heavy eye make up and I don't use it every day so I feel it would last. I've been using this for about 3 weeks and really like it. It has a light floral scent and leaves my eyes feeling refreshed and I don't have to rub my eyes to get the majority of my make up off. The fluid doesn't spill out as easily either so you can control how much you want to use. The price is a tough one though, for £15 that doesn't make it an easy instant purchase, you would have to think about just purchasing that and not use face wipes as well etc.

Of course this is just what I have ended up preferring and it may not work out for you. I do use Sweet Almond Oil for light eye make up removal so there are plenty of other alternatives out there.

  2. Thanks for sharing! I think that I am going to try this, especially since finding out that coconut oil does not agree with my skin!

    1. Check out the ingredient list first (sorry to state the obvious) but it is actually quite a long list. I checked it all out and felt it was okay to give it a go. xx

    1. Hello Karen, I have been really enjoying it. It's just a shame that it is so expensive. I'm not sure that it would last that long if I were having to use it everyday xx
