Hi there my lovelies!
Today I’ve got a review for you all, which I haven’t done in ages even though I have so much to review!
Now I know this product was reviewed a lot in November/December time, and although I’ve had it since then (and’ve been using it) I wanted to try it out fully and then see what I thought.
The product I am reviewing is the L’oreal Micellar 3 in 1 Water Solution (wow that was a handful!). This product retails for £4.99 but you can usually find it on offer, like I did in savers for only £2.99. This product has been said to be a dupe for the much raved about Bioderma, which is triple the price. Also here in England Bioderma is hard to get our hands on, so I jumped on the chance of trying a dupe!
Nowadays there are so many Micellar waters, but I wanted to stick by one that had a lot of good reviews and a trustworthy brand too. Was I disappointed when I tried this one? Oh helll no.
This scent free, colour free and sting free make up remover works like a dream on your make up. I mostly use it for eye make up removing, as I usually never wear any face make up or lip stuff that lasts until I want to remove it. I pour a tiny amount onto the cotton pad, hold it over my eyes for about 10 seconds and then sweep once and BANG. The dirt is gone. (Pun intended).
This product is brilliant for sensitive eyes, the gentle scentless and colourless water won’t irritate your eyes at all. Plus you don’t need to scrub at your eyes at all, even if you’re wearing that stingy waterproof mascara; a few swipes will do.
The only problem I have with this make up remover is the packaging. It’s one of them poury outy bottles, where all the product comes flying out straight away. Not my kind of bottle, no way. But with the wonderful content do I mind so much? No, not really. So it’s all chill. But I’d appreciate it if you, yep you L’oreal, changed the packaging 😉
It does not dry out your eyes but neither does it make them feel like a greasy frie. It’s literally water.
So overall I think I would give the L’oreal Micellar Water Solution a 5/5, despite the packaging which if it was different I would love. At £3-£4 I think it’s 100% worth giving a try, especially if you’re looking for an alternative to Bioderma!
I hope to give Bioderma a try one day too. Have you tried it?
I hope you enjoyed this post, thanks so much for reading!
