L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution | Review

Monday 14 October 2013

This has been featuring in my skincare routine every day since I bought it a couple of weeks ago. I'm not a big lover of skincare, mainly due to it being quite expensive and also because I'm quite lazy. I love putting makeup on, don't love taking it off quite so much.

It comes in a fairly large bottle which I find kind of irritating to pour the product out of, I don't know if I'm just being over enthusiastic or if I have crappy cotton wool pads, but it seems to streams out and saturates the pad before I have a chance to control it.

Minor issues aside however and this is a great product. It doesn't have a noticeable scent and it is described as perfume free too. It feels extremely light on your skin when applied and it really does leave my skin feeling clean and toned after I've used it. I have been using it to remove my eye makeup too and I've found that it's not quite as effective as my Clarin's remover but it does a pretty decent job and I don't wake up with panda eyes nor does it sting them in any way.

I like to use it in the morning after I've had a shower and used a face wash but before I apply my moisturiser. It doesn't leave any residue on your skin despite containing small molecules of oil so it doesn't take any time before you can continue your normal routine without it feeling sticky or greasy.

I don't particularly think I have what you could describe as sensitive skin but I haven't found it to cause any redness or irritation on my eyes or my face, in fact I think my skin looks a little clearer, but that's probably because I've been keeping up some form of a routine rather than none.

Overall, I'm really pleased I bought this and I will definitely repurchase! It costs only £4.99 so it's fantastic value especially as I got mine for £3.32 on offer at Superdrug and you can usually find it somewhere at a cheaper price at any time.

Have you tried any micellar waters?


  1. I've been wanting to try this for so long - I get even more jealous after every review I see! Xx

  2. I absolutely love this, it leaves my skin feeling so clean and refreshed! I too find it kind of annoying to get out of the bottle, I don't like how it literally just pours out so quickly but that aside, it really is a great product.

  3. I have the same problem with pouring out far too much; I think it's the shape of the bottle that's the issue. Bit otherwise I think this is a fab product! Xo
