I really hate to change up my skincare routine… having sensitive skin that breaks out when it HEARS the world ‘irritation’ isn’t too fun, and trying out new skincare products usually leaves me saying “I wish I didn’t do that”. However, After trying out this product at a friend’s house one night, I fell in love and decided to purchase it and give it a good go. Well- I’m about 90% done the bottle now, and i’ll be repurchasing!
This micellar cleansing solution (aka cleansing water), attracts makeup, dirt and oil and sucks it off your skin onto a cotton pad like a charm. It’s so gentle, it will never burn or leave your skin dry. You don’t even have to rinse after, however being the clean-freak I am, I follow-up with a gentle Cetaphil cleanser to make sure its all gone. It takes off mascara (even waterproof with a few tries), lipstick, sunscreen, long-wear foundation, concealer…everything! With just a few swipes. I’ve even used it on my models at our last photoshoot and everyone seemed to love how gentle and effective it was!
There are a few cons though… first, I go through this product FAST. I’m used to skincare lasting a while…you know, ‘a little goes a long way’. Well with this one, I need to do 2-3 passes over my face to get all the makeup off. I’d probably go through an entire large pump-top bottle every 1-2 months…but it’s not too pricey so I really don’t mind. This also leads into my next con… I use SO many cotton pads as well! I like the premium cotton pads, so they aren’t that cheap. Neither of these cons will stop me using it…but it’s something to think about.
