I like the feeling of cleansing off my eye makeup without feeling i'm using something that's going to leave an film of oil behind. When i noticed L'Oreal had released their take on micellar water i had to get it.
Both products are currently half price at Superdrug and when i nipped into town to nosey the shelves of the beauty departments i noticed that alongside L'Oreal's micellar solution there was a cleansing oil in the new L'Oreal range also.
I love the sound of DHC's Cleasning Oil, but i don't have the budget to justify spending DHC's prices at the moment. I really wanted to try a cleansing oil as an oil that transforms when water is added intrigues me. I didn't expect L'Oreal's version to be brilliant as i really do think better ingredients mean a better product. I was fine with putting an oil on my skin if it meant when i rinsed with warm water it dissolved totally.
I haven't waited weeks to write a review. I do feel some products need a lengthy use to justify a review but it's my blog and i wanted to share what i think of these products after just two days of use as i'm impatient.
The L'Oreal skin perfection 3 in 1 micellar solution removes my eye makeup as good as Bioderma. It doesn't irritate my eyes at all, but for some reason i wouldn't class it as good as Bioderma and i have no way to describe why. Maybe Bioderma's packaging makes me think i'm applying a product that is more pure than L'Oreal's? Some times packaging really does subliminally force preferances.
L'Oreal's 15 Second Miracle Cleansing Oil. A small pump of oil rubbed around my eyes and i could instantly feel the mascara being lifted off. It removed stubborn eye makeup brilliantly. Once rinsed it did dissolve totally and it left my skin feeling as if it didn't need moisturiser. This may not be suited to be used over the entire face if you suffer from oily skin. If, like me you intend to use this only to remove eye makeup it's great.
