As you'll know if you're a regular reader of my blog, I am a huge skin care geek and I love finding new skin care products so I was super excited to try the La Roche-Posay Make Up Remover Micellar Water Gel. I love La Roche-Posay they have some amazing products and one of my holy grail skin care products is the Serozinc spray.
About The Make Up Remover Micellar Water Gel
The La Roche-Posay Make-Up Remover Micellar Water Gel is a gentle cleansing gel which is suitable for normal/combination and sensitive skin, it is alcohol, colorant, soap and paraben free and contains hydrating and soothing active ingredients including the La Roche-Posay thermal spring water.
My Thoughts Including First Impressions
The first thing I noticed and was impressed with was the pump on the bottle, I like products that are easy to dispense, I also liked the scent of the product it has a lovely fresh scent to it with a subtle hint of rose, I was a little lost with the directions of how to use the product as on the back of the bottle it says "apply to wet face, no rinsing" which is a little strange but it didn't bother me too much.
I decided to use the gel in the same way I use my cleansing balm, I dispensed one pump into my hands, rubbed my hands together and then smoothed the gel all over my face and neck and then removed with a face cloth which I'd had under hand hot water and wrung out. I did find that one pump of the gel wasn't enough to remove a full face of make up and I needed to repeat the process twice more to remove all my make up.
I found the gel left my skin feeling really fresh and cool, it felt soft and not tight at all. I have also used the gel as my morning cleanse and my evening cleanse when I'm not wearing any make up and I really enjoyed using it like that especially as my morning cleanse because it leaves my skin feeling fresh and cool and it leaves me feeling awake so it is perfect for my morning cleanse.
Overall Thoughts & Would I Re Purchase?
I really liked the La Roche-Posay Make-Up Remover Micellar Water Gel, it is a completely different cleansing product than I am used to and have enjoyed using especially in the mornings. I wouldn't use the gel as my only make-up remover or cleanser as I feel it isn't as beneficial for my skin as a balm cleanser because I have extremely dry and dehydrated skin and I need something with a little more nourishment but I really enjoyed using the gel as my morning cleanser or my first cleanse/make up remover as part of my evening skin care routine. I think the La Roche-Posay Make-Up Remover Micellar Water Gel would be brilliant for someone with an oily skin as their morning and evening cleanser, but for me it works best as I said as my morning cleanse or my first cleanse in an evening and I would purchase it for that purpose as I loved the way my skin felt after using it.
