Today's post is about my surprisingly recent obsession with micellar waters. I hate following a hype and even worse when a product seems to be raved about undeservedly (Maybelline Baby Lips - just saying) but I was keen to see what all the fuss was about with micellar waters.
A while ago La Roche-Posay was part of the 3 for 2 offers in Boots so I took this opportunity to buy their Physiological Micellar Solution. I use it with the Boots Cotton Wool Double Faced Oval Pads which as cotton pads go, they're really soft and large to get all of your face with ease.
This solution has a subtle scent, sweet and refreshing. It's gentle and cleanses my skin whilst removing all traces of my make up. As with all my make up removal methods I've tried, I always use a make up wipe first to take off the bulk of it and then use a proper remover like this one. I find that this definitely works at dissolving it thoroughly and is equal to a few other similar products that I shall be reviewing at a later date.
The bottom line is... I really enjoy this micellar water. There are cheaper alternatives to it like the L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution but this one does have a really lovely scent. If Boots had a 3 for 2 offer again I would definitely consider purchasing a new bottle when this is gone, definitely one to try out !
