Biore Micellar Cleansing Water Review

micellar water review

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. 🙂

    It's great you're happy with it and want to repurchase it, sounds like it works for you even if it needs a little more effort to remove some makeup.

    I've only heard of the Biore sunscreens but this micellar cleansing water sounds really good! I'll definitely look for it 😀

    That's the thing. A product that works get recommended. I would like to commend you also for putting up the label. It is for the benefit of others who would like to try the product and have a clearer idea of what is in the bottle.

    Does it remove light makeup? You should try Celeteque Cleansing Oil. It really removes stubborn makeup. Even the waterproof ones are removed easily. Haven't tried this though but think Biore has an alternative cleansing product that works best for cleansing. I just forgot the name tho. I hope you can find the best cleansing product for you.

    The Biore Micellar Cleansing water can remove light makeup pretty well but now waterproof makeup. Will look into Celeteque Cleansing Oil! I think you're talking about the Biore Cleansing Oil and Facial Wipe? They work great on waterproof makeup! 🙂

    Interesting! I swear by my Make Up Forever eye makeup remover for taking off my waterproof mascara. So I had never thought about using micellar water. But it's nice to know that you don't have to wash your face afterwards. And it's Biore so I'm sure it's affordable too.

    I've never heard of Biore before. But I love your review. I'll look around if I see it in the shop. I use a cleansing water daily. At this moment I use Garnier.

    I did not know that micelar water can also remove make-up. It's good that it is gentle with the eyes, mine are sensitive and most of the make-up removers simply sting too much.

    They are usually available at the drugstores. And I'm pretty sure you can get them online too. I've heard of Garnier Micellar Water before but I haven't got around into buying one yet.

    Yes, Biore products are actually quite affordable. The Biore Micellar cleansing water isn't that good in removing waterproof mascaras though. If you're a fan of waterproof makeup, you chould try the Biore Makeup Wipes instead. 🙂

    Interesting review! Though it did not fully give the result, your satisfaction with the job it can done matters most. A perfect buddy to try for girls, I guess. Does it normally in small bottles for easy carry by the users?

  12. July 16, 2016 / 4:21 am

    I think so since I've only seen it in small bottles like this one. It does remove light makeup fully but it can't remove waterproof makeup too well which is to be expected since it's a micellar water. 🙂

    My friend introduced me to Biore products, she uses the oil-based makeup remover and the foaming facial wash, both are really good. I don't really like waterproof makeup especially the mascara as I find them to a nightmare when they have to be removed, but the oil-based makeup remover of Biore really works for that toughie. I'd love to try the water-based just for the sake of trying because as you said, doesn't work as good as the oil-based.

    Biore Micellar Cleansing water is no match with oil-based makeup removers but I love it for removing light makeup as it's cheaper too. I like saving my oil-based makeup removers for waterproof mascaras. 🙂 I have never tried their foaming facial wash and oil-based makeup remover yet but I will try them as soon as I ran out of facial wash and oil makeup removers. I'm currently loving Etude House's Baking Powder facial wash right now. 🙂

    This product looks very gentle for your skin. I think alcohol-based products are pretty harsh, as well as oil based. Thanks for the tip.

    I really love your blog.. Great colors & theme.
    Did you build this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m attempting to create my very own site and want to find out where
    you got this from or just what the theme is named.

    Interesting! How much is this? I’ve been hearing a lot about micellar cleansing water and I do hope it’s not just a fad. Oil based is still better for waterproof makeup, imo. But for those wary about alcohol based cleansers, maybe this will do? Or why not just simple soap and water hehe.
