My Bargain Beauty Spend………….The New Micellar That Is Actually Worth The Hype.
Rarely will you ever see a post from me praising high street beauty or skin care; however, if it’s good, i will shout it from the roof tops and i am about to do just that.
For quite a while now i have been eyeing the Bioderma Micellar Sensibo Cleansing Water. Because it can only be purchased on line, it’s put me off a bit. Its price is another issue for me. £10.00 for 250ml of product is just not good enough. Sorry! It can be purchased in France for next to nothing, so why do they need to mark the price up that much in the UK?!!! It’s only across the channel after all. Rant over!
Along comes Garnier, who have capitalized on the fact that Bioderma prices are just a bit over the top and have produced Micellar Cleansing Water for £4.99/400ml.
I bought this a few weeks ago from Boots and you can also purchase it here, https://www.boots.com and have been using it every night to remove my makeup. I’ve also been critically evaluating its efficiency at removing makeup and how it leaves my skin looking and feeling too.
It is hypoallergenic, great for my sensitive skin, can be used for face, eyes and lips and contains no perfumes of any kind. In fact, i cannot smell anything off it at all. It’s main ingredients are water and glycerine.
It goes on like water and has a little moisturizing feel to it, only slightly though (glycerine). No toner is required after taking off the makeup and it leaves the skin looking cleansed and refreshed and soft at the same time. It also removes makeup effortlessly without having to rub hard.
I do follow my night time skin care routine afterwards as normal; however, i don’t believe you would have to if you have normal skin. I have combination/dry skin.
For a full face of makeup, i use 4 cotton pads with this product. Quite a small amount really. Normally i would use the same with a cream cleanser and then two more pads afterwards with toner.
It has up to 200 uses. I would say about 6-8 weeks use at a guess.
This is a great product for removing my makeup and for a general cleanse as well. It feels as good as the Dior cleansing water i use and the Clarins one i have used in the past, at a fraction of the cost.
I obviously cannot compare it with Bioderma; although, Bioderma has the same main two ingredients and i will not be purchasing that now i have found this gem of a cleanser. It’s just so much easier to get hold of as well.
I urge you all to give it a go. It really is lovely on the skin, i can’t believe i’m saying that about a high street product but there you go. I even thought it was worth a whole post to itself.
Let me know what you think and until next time, have fun. 😉
