There’s been a ton of raves about Micellar Waters the past few months so I decided to grab this Biore Micellar Cleansing Water when I saw this in the drugstore. I was stocking up with my Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Wipes when I picked this up. You guys know how impressed I am with Biore’s makeup wipes so I figured their Micellar Cleansing water must be good too.
Micellar waters are said to lift even waterproof makeup with a single wipe. It claims to be as good as alcohol based and oil based makeup removers and toners without being too harsh on the skin. I must mention too that you don’t need to rinse it afterwards unlike oil based makeup removers.
So, is Biore Makeup Remover Micellar Cleansing Water actually as tough as oil based removers? I’d say no, it doesn’t remove my waterproof makeup and mascara as well as my oil-based makeup removers but it still does a better job than my alcohol-based makeup removers. It still does the job though, it can remove waterproof makeup and even matte liquid lipsticks. It just takes a bit longer and a bit more product but it is still way better and gentler than other alcohol based makeup removers.
Biore Micellar Cleansing Water claims to contain natural mineral water from the Japanese Alps. How cool is that? It also claim to lift off makeup in 1 wipe which is true if you’re not wearing waterproof makeup. It is a different story though with waterproof makeups.
The question now is would I repurchase? Yes, definitely. I’d repurchase because it’s gentler and it does the job pretty well. It’s perfect for days when I’d come home very tired and when I’m too lazy to rinse off my makeup because unlike other makeup removers, you’re not required to rinse your face when you use the Biore Micellar Cleansing Water. 🙂
