L’Oreal Micellar Water Review

So everyone knows Loreal so instead of going on about the brand, I’ll get to the review.

The product. I realise the bottle is empty and that’s because I transferred it into my Biore Cleansing Water bottle with the pump, picture below.

Back of the bottle. The ingredients are very similar to the Maybelline Micellar Water (review link here).

The cap.

Description: Makeup remover or micellar cleansing water that comes in 400 ml and 250 ml bottles.

Ingredients: AQUA / WATER, HEXYLENE GLYCOL, GLYCERIN, POLOXAMER 184, DISODIUM COCOAMPHODIACETATE, DISODIUM EDTA, BHT, POLYAMINOPROPYL BIGUANIDE.

Where to buy: Most drugstores and supermarkets.

Price: MYR 33.90 for the 400ml and MYR 25.40 for the 250ml

A small test.

Pigmented eyeshadows, foundation, concealer, gel liner, liquid liner, liquid lipstick.

Cotton pad soaked in the product, pressed on the makeup for a couple of seconds and then gently swiped. The liquid lipstick and the gel liner needed a few more swipes.

Pros:

Light on the skin.

No sticky feeling afterwards.

Pretty effective at removing makeup.

Doesn’t irritate my eyes one bit.

Although slightly bitter, it isn’t as bad as the Biore one (review link here).

 

Cons:

Does have a bitter taste.

No pump so product tends to get a little bit wasted.

 

Rating:

8.5/10

This performed exact same way the Maybelline one performed. No difference! So I’ll be honest, this is the EXACT same review except the rating and one extra con. So, I knocked down a couple of points because this one is a tad pricier than the Maybelline.

You should check out my battle of the drugstore micellar water post (link here) to know why I wouldn’t repurchase this.

I was gifted this by a friend and not be an jerk but this made my skin a tiny bit dry. SORRY DANIEL!!!!!!!! It was otherwise alright. I didn’t repurchase this and so I wouldn’t go ahead to actually purchase it.

Again, as much as I love using face masks, I have never really felt a big difference after using one except being rejuvenated and refreshed. And this was no different. I have a couple more of this because it came in a bundle of 4 that cost me a mere MYR10. Repurchase again, no.

Bioré Perfect Cleansing Water (Makeup Remover) Review

[UPDATED REVIEW]

Bioré is a cosmetics brand that predominantly focuses on skincare. It is owned by the Japan based company Kao Corporation. Kao Malaysia has been established since 1973. The Bioré Perfect Cleansing Water is supposedly created with micelle technology that would dissolve and remove makeup (including waterproof mascara) gently without the need to tug on your skin. It is also alcohol-free, oil-free, colourant-free and fragrance-free. All great for sensitive skin.

The product.

It comes in a pump! Every beauty addict can appreciate this!

Description: Cleansing water for the purpose of removing makeup. Available in 90 ml and 300 ml bottles. The 300 ml bottle has a pump the 90 ml one does not.

Where to buy: All major drugstores (Watsons, Guardian, Caring).

Price: Anywhere between MYR 24 to MYR 36 for the 300 ml bottle and anywhere between MYR 11 to MYR 17 for the 90 ml bottle. Prices are subject to in store rates and, discounts and offers.

I have included pictures on how well the cleansing water works to remove makeup. 

I have concealer, foundation, powder, liquid liner, eyeshadows, mascara, lipstick and liquid lipstick.

Soaked for about 10 seconds and gently swiped off. Pretty amazing huh?

Soaked for about 10 seconds and gently swiped off. Pretty amazing huh? The matte liquid lipstick is still there though.

Pros:

It does the job quite effectively. However, removing matte liquid lipsticks requires a little more effort.

It leaves the skin feeling fresh and hydrated.

Does not have a sticky after feel as with some cleansing waters.

Doesn’t have an annoying scent or anything like that.

 

Cons:

It tastes BITTER!!! (If you have used it on the lips to remove long wearing lipsticks or matte liquid lipsticks, I’d suggest rinsing your mouth first before you do anything else. If you accidentally lick your lips after having used this you are going to regret it. This cleansing water tastes bitter! Very bitter!)

After using it for some time, it has started to irritate my eyes.

7/10

This previously had a rating >8 but I have deducted points because it now hurts my eyes…
