The water, The Oil and The Balm

I’m not a huge fan of Micellar waters and actually really don’t get on with Bioderma (really dehydrates my skin) but I still think they are useful and like to have on near by. I would never recommend using Micellar water as your evening cleanse but they are great to remove makeup mistakes and even as a pre-cleanse. I’ve tried lots of them from high end to drugstore and my favourite is the as it removes makeup really well, is a large bottle, does leave residue and most importantly for me, is doesn’t dehydrate or irritate my skin/

When I need remove my makeup quickly and effectively than I always turn to oils although I am careful as some (particularly those with mineral oil) break me out. My go-to at the moment is , I use it all over my face even on my eyes and it effortlessly removed everything without leaving an oily film. I do find thought that it works much better with just one pump as sometimes I do over apply and am left with a lot of product, I love the pump as it makes it hygienic and far less messy than having to pour it out.

However the cleanser of all cleansers has to be , this little beauty is pretty expensive and one I’ve started saving for special occasions but it’s my absolute favourite. It’s packed of great ingredients that I find really help calm but also feed my skin, I love most balm cleansers but I find this one makes the biggest difference to my skin and it’s perfect for a facial massage too. If I could have one cleanser for the rest of life this would probably be but it would be quite an expensive routine to upkeep.

    I've never tried a cleansing oil, but this sounds really nice. I have also never tried Micellar water, but after reading this I don't feel the need to, ha! So thanks for saving me a bit of money šŸ™‚

    I'm forever trying new cleaners and ways to take my makeup off! I love my ever trusty Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish but I also love Vichy products as well!

    I've yet to try a cleansing oil, my skin is actually really dry so I imagine they'd be quite good for me. I haven't been wowed by micellar water either! cottonandcandie xx

    I couldn't live without the Garnier micellar cleansing water, it's such a good price as well for how well it removes your make-up and cleanses
