L'oreal Skin perfection Micellar Solution

Loreal - Skin perfection - Micellar solution - micellar water - skincare - review - cleanser

Micellar water is nothing new and has been pouring all over the skincare world. Literally it has flooded the market ( like what I did there) After trying Loreal's skin perfection day cream and being so impressed I wanted to try more of the range.


I have been using this for a while now and all in all have enjoyed using it. Although there are definitely some things I would change about the product.


The packaging looks the most expensive in a tall clear plastic bottle. in my opinion the packaging looks the classiest of all the high-street micellar waters available. However whoever designed this bottle was obviously focusing on the wrong thing as the hole used to dispense the product is just that a massive gaping hole.


I find I waste so much product when applying the solution to a cotton pad, it goes everywhere! Once I had realised this I was much more careful when using it but really the whole thing could easily have been avoided if they had designed it better.

This is perfect for people with sensitive skin as it is really gentle and soothing. It doesn't leave skin at all tight and leaves skin feeling fresh and clean.


L'OrĂ©al Paris Skin Perfection Purifying Micellar Water, high performance cleansing for sensitive skin. Used by make-up artists, the 'micellar' solution swiftly removes all traces of make-up and acts like a purifying magnet on skin's surface to capture and draw out excess oil and impurities. So gentle, skin feels soothed and toned. Hypo-allergenic. No Alcohol. Dermatologically tested.


I personally use micellar waters as a make up remover rather than as a cleanser. I never feel like they penetrate the skin deep enough to give a really deep down clean. Yet on lazy days this is still better than a face wipe!


This does remove my make up with the greatest of ease and doesn't make your eyes sting when removing hard to shift mascara. I love that after a few wipes all traces of make up have disappeared from your skin with no rubbing needed.


For £4.99 I think its a brilliant product, Its often on offer as well where you can get it even cheaper. I would definitely repurchase!!  I only wish they would change the lid!


Have you tried this? Do you use it as a cleanser or just to remove your make up? Which Micellar water do you like best?

Lots of love,

  1. I've not tried this but I'm currently using the Garnier one and it's just not as good as bioderma. I will always love bioderma!

  3. I'm actually reviewing this tomorrow against the Garnier micellar water. I use micellar waters as my first cleanse (or if I'm being ultra lazy!) and couldn't agree more about the packaging, that's my main rant!

  5. I do like this, and this is a good alternative to Bioderma, but do find it leaves my skin slightly sticky, but like you I only use it to remove my makeup, and use a cleanser afterward anyway.

  7. I have this and I completely agree with the design flaw. The hole just pours out the liquid and I end up wasting lots too, but it is really good for sensitive skin.
    Great review!

  9. The packaging was my main problem with this too, but I also didn't find it that good at removing my eye makeup. The Garnier one is the same price for double the product so that is next on my list to try xx

  17. Unfortunately this one did not work out for me. I used it for several weeks and the most difficult for me was to get the right amount of product on a cotton pad. It splashed everywhere + I had to go over several times at it did not much to clean makeup residue so it was over in no time...
