l'oreal skin perfection micellar solution

I mentioned in this post that the L'Oreal Micellar water is an alternative to the highly raved about Bioderma, I'd actually go as far as saying it's a dupe as it really is that similar. Applied in exactly the same way by soaking a couple of cotton pads with the solution & sweeping it all over your skin it removes makeup & other impurities in a matter of seconds. The water-like consistency dissolves makeup as it claims, although I don't think it's quite as good as Bioderma is at removing eye makeup & on the odd occasion it has made my eyes sting slightly. It is really refreshing to use as it literally feels like cold water so it leaves your skin feeling toned & soothed, again identical to Bioderma. I'm not a fan of the packaging at all, I just prefer the round Bioderma bottle & again as mentioned with Bioderma, I tend to waste a lot of the water because it pours out too quickly & drips everywhere! However for a product that does an almost identical job for a fraction of the price & can be located on the high street easily I will probably repurchase this again & again!

Have you tried this Micellar water?

  1. I've heard so many great things about Bioderma, and to know there's a near equivalent for way under half the price is awesome! May have to pick this up next time I'm in boots! x

  2. I tried both and I prefer Bioderma. This one stings my eyes and doesn't remove makeup as well as Bioderma. And like you said, the opening is way too large so you tend to use a lot more than you need to. I know that Bioderma is more expensive, but I use so little of it compared to this one that it lasts me a lot longer and works out cheaper in the end.

  3. I haven't tried this nor Bioderma but I would really love to! I need to just bite the bullet and order some online.
