Beauty bloggers & the beauty industry as a whole have gone crazy for Micellar waters ever since Bioderma became the 'it' skincare product to be using. With Bioderma being difficult to buy unless you lived in France or London it created an opportunity for other brands to add a micellar water to their product range. Over the past year or so lots of alternatives have been hitting the shelves of Boots, Superdrug & even the supermarkets, with L'Oreal & Garnier being just two of those companies that joined in with the cleansing water craze!
Botanics are skincare brand that I have used & loved in the past so when I popped into Boots to pick up some more cleansing water & spotted they had an introductory offer on their new cleansing waters so I thought I'd give the All Bright one a try. There is also an Ultra Calm version available too which I'll be picking up next! This water is very similar to all of the others I have tried before, it has the same water like consistency & feeling, it removes makeup/dirt quickly & efficiently & feels refreshing on my skin. The difference between this one & the other ones I have tried is that Botanics have provided more than just a cleanser, which explains the name '3 in 1 Cleansing Solution'. You might be wondering, how is a micellar water 3 in 1, surely it just works as a cleanser? Well this product contains Hibiscus which is known for it's brightening & properties so with this ingredient being included the water is not only able to remove the daily build up of dirt & makeup it also helps to brighten your skin. The third & final part to the 3 in 1 cleansing solution is that the water acts as a mild exfoliant thanks to the Hibiscus flower's natural AHA's (according to Google this stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acid!). This little bottle of natural skincare not only helps to clean my skin but also exfoliates & brightens, three things for under £3! I love that it's powered by nature, it preps my skin ready for the next step in my routine & is the most affordable of the bunch.
Have you used a micellar water before? Which one is your favourite?
