If you read my Recent Purchases #1 post, you will know that I bought L'oreal's new Skin Perfection Micellar Solution. Us beauty addicts have been going mad for the stuff! I have read many reviews and seen it in many monthly favourite posts and hauls, so I had to get my hands on it! Many of you asked me to write a review for you, so thats just what I'm going to do (because I'm nice like that!). Im a huge fan of Bioderma's micellar solution, so thought I would compare the two for you, so lets begin!
I can't deny it, I LOVE Bioderma's micellar solution! I bought it a few months back and I have been converted - I'm never to use make-up wipes ever, ever again! (For those of you who may not know what micellar solution is, it dissolves make-up and is essentially a water cleanser and make-up remover.) I couldn't believe how good it is! It looks and smells just like water (hence the H20) and I use it every evening with two cotton pads and swipe it gentle over my face. It removes my make-up thoroughly and efficiently and leaves my skin feeling soft and super fresh and doesn't leave that greasy residue you get with some make-up wipes. As I suffer from dry and sensitive skin (lucky me!), I often find make-up remover can leave my skin feeling tight and red, whereas Bioderma leaves my skin feeling great, the solution is very gentle on the skin. It is also great at removing waterproof mascara and removes eye make-up gently and quickly - you wont loose any lashes from scrubbing! I also find that if I use my Liz Earle cleanse and polish after, there is very rarely any make-up left on my muslin cloth! Overall, my skin is left feeling toned, fresh and super clean! In my opinion this is the best micellar solution out of the two, but it is a little on the pricer side. But, I will most defiantly be purchasing this again without a shadow of a doubt!
I'm very impressed with L'oreals micellar solution! Just like Bioderma's solution it looks and smells just like water and is extremely gentle on the skin and eye area. The two are very similar, however in my opinion I would say that Bioderma is marginally better at thoroughly removing all my make-up, as when I use my cleanse and polish after using this product, I quite often find make-up on my muslin cloth. I also have to use a tad more of the L'oreal solution to completely remove my make-up - especially when using waterproof mascara. However, that is not to say it doesn't remove make-up well, because it is still far better than using make-up wipes and it is a great cleanser as it leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. This solution is 3 in 1, it claims to dissolve make-up, unclog pores and improve impurities and tone and smooth your skin. In all honesty it does do these three things - hooray! Bioderma has also had the same effect on my skin as well as helping to minimise my pores. This product is also very reasonably priced at just £4.99 and can be found on the high street, unlike Bioderma which is currently sold online only here in the UK. If I cant get my hands on Bioderma, I will most definitely opt for this one instead! The bottle size is good however, I have spilt it a few times so be careful! I have been enjoying using this product and will continue to until the very last drop! Overall, both of these micellar solutions are great - one a little more effective at removing make-up, yet both great cleansers. Everyone's skin is different so it would be worth giving them both a go, because either way you wont be disappointed! Micellar solution is the way forward!
