Guest Post #10 || L'Oreal Micellar Water

Hi, I'm Huma from Confessions of a Beauty Lover and today I'm going to be doing a guest post on the amazing Beau Maquillagex's blog.

Some days like most people I have those days were I want to use the quickest possible method to take my makeup off and go to bed and that's why I love Micellar waters as they're so easy, pop a bit on a cotton pad and wipe it all over your face and voila! After seeing that L'Oreal had jumped on the bandwagon and released their own Micellar water I was intrigued to find out more and put it to the test. I've heard it's a great dupe for Bioderma but unfortunately I can't do a comparison because I haven't tried Bioderma (just yet!).

What do L'Oreal claim:
''Used by make-up artists, this solution feels as gentle as water on your skin but acts like a make-up remover, toner and skin soother all in one.Purifies and soothes. Swiftly dissolving all traces of make-up, the 'micellar' solution acts like a purifying magnet on the skin's surface to capture and draw out excess oil and impurities rather than spreading them around your face like some wipes can. So gentle, skin feels soothed and toned.'' 

I've been using these everyday for over a month now and I love it, I love it so much I've already brought my 2nd bottle because I've almost finished my first bottle! The only thing is a 200ml bottle will probably last you 2 months max but it's so affordable, when you do repurchase it, it will definitely not break your bank!

I use this after washing my face in the morning and evenings to remove any makeup my facewash didn't remove and I never realised how much makeup I still have on after washing my face even though my skin feels clean. I take a clean cotton pad and squirt some onto there and wipes it all over my face and it removes all traces of makeup! What ever you skin type, this would suit you, I have quite sensitive skin and I've always found makeup wipes and most cleanser to irritate my eyes and leave my skin feeling tight after using them however with this I find it leaves my skin feeling cleansed and fresh and it doesn't feel tight at all. It really is like wiping your face with water - it's super gentle and effective, I'd definitely agree with L'Oreals claims.

Overall, I'm so impressed my this Micellar water, it has definitely exceeded my expectations and seriously impressed me, I don't see myself using anything else anytime soon! You can buy this 200ml bottle at Boots & Superdrug and its currently on offer at both places for £3.33 - bargain! [LINK].
