I have always used the Johnson's Facial Cleansing wipes to take off my makeup for as long as I can remember and it has always worked for me but recently I have found that using wipes can be quite harsh and rough on my skin especially when trying to remove my eye makeup. I wanted to try something that was a little bit more gentle and would remove mascara easier. The L'oreal 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution is something I've heard a lot about recently and I wanted to try it out myself and see what it was like as it only costs around £3, which is good.
This product is always being compared to the Bioderma Sensibio H20 Solution which is another product I've always wanted to try but I just haven't got my hands on it yet. Although I can't compare the two products, I thought I would tell you want I thought of this solution. To apply this product, I pour a bit of the solution on to a cotton pad and then simply wipe it around my face, removing the makeup. The first thing I would say is that it comes out the bottle very quickly so you have to be careful that you don't waste too much of the product at once.
It claims to "dissolve make-up" and I would definitely agree with it. After a couple of whips across my face my makeup has dissolved and has been removed. It takes a couple of cotton wool pads to remove my mascara but it does the job and it feel gentler on my skin than a makeup wipe. Although I like this product, I wouldn't just use this product on it's own. Although it claims to "unclog pores, and remove impurities", I would still use a cleanser or face wash (such as the Clinique liquid skin formula) after to make sure everything was completely removed & there was no residue left on my face. I do like this product and I would recommend it. However from what I've read, Bioderma has got better reviews but for me, this product is a cheaper alternative and still does the job well.
