Cleansing is probably the most important part of my skin care routine. I have the type of skin where if I do not cleanse thoroughly every night to remove make up and excess oil then the rest of my regime is pointless. I will break out and will be back to square one.
I used to use a face wipe (I hear the gasps of horror) before cleansing, I have now replaced this with a cleansing water of some sort. The latest one that I am currently using is the L'oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution. I use this at night before cleansing, applied with cotton pads to remove the first layer of crud. I keep on going until the pads only show a little make up on them and then I move on to the next step, one pad does not suffice!
Personally I do not think this unclogs pores or removes impurities. Let me re-phrase, it doesn't remove any impurities from my skin and I think its a bit of a strong claim. However as it is alcohol & fragrance free it feels very gentle & is still effective, its like wiping water over your face which I love (I don't mean I love wiping water on my face, I mean I like it being gentle, I'm not a total weirdo)
I would not use this on its own without following with another cleanser, it just wouldn't work for me. I also occasionally have to use a separate eye make up remover if I have worn a lot of make up that day.
I think this is another Bioderma competitor, I have not tried Bioderma yet so I can not comment if this is better/worse however it is a fraction of the price at £3.00 from Asda.
Overall it removes make up gently and prepares my skin for a good cleanse, it serves its purpose so I would re-buy this. Have you tried it yet?
