REVIEW: La Roche Posay Micellar Water Ultra Reactive Skin
Micellar water is a gentle product with unique capabilities to hide oil in water. I won't go too much into detail as I already have a dedicated post explaining exactly what Micellar Water is and what it can do for your skin care routine. If you're not familiar with the product then I'd recommend checking that out first. Essentially, the micelle is a gentle surfactant that removes oil, dirt, and makeup from the surface of your skin.
I have been using the micellar water for quite some time now (this is my second bottle!) and have really fallen in love with the solution. Today, I'm sharing my thoughts on the La Roche Posay's Ultra Reactive Micellar Water for Sensitive skin.
The first thing I really enjoy about this product is how gentle it is. I've used a number of micellar water solutions and eye makeup removers in the past and they have pretty much all burned my eyes when I try to remove my eye makeup. This one simply doesn't. La Roche Posay's micellar water is made for sensitive skin. It is uniquely formalized not to cause irritation. Not only does it do this for the skin but also for the eyes. More importantly, this solution has not broken me out which is a win in my book because my skin tends to be very sensitive when trying new products.
The product doesn't carry a scent, personally, if it doesn't smell good, I'd rather not have any scent at all, so this aligns very well for me. I have noticed also that it is quite moisturizing. My skin doesn't feel stripped, dry or tight after using it at all. On the flip side, the micellar water also manages to cleanse my face without leaving a greasy feeling. You are able to use this without washing it off of your face as directed, which I have done on lazy nights when I am too tired to do my entire skin care routine. Personally, I typically rinse my face afterwards because I don't like the idea of leaving a cleansing agent on my skin, but I love not having to worry about it when I sleep over at a friends house or come home from a party and can't make it to the sink.
By far one of the best ways I use this is in the morning. I typically don't wash my face in the morning, as I do not see the need. I have instead replaced morning washes with this micellar water as it still gives me that gentle cleanse so I don't feel as groggy in the morning. I rinse with some warm water or even a warm towel and I am good to go.
If you're looking for a good eye makeup remover for that stubborn waterproof mascara, liquid lipstick, or eyeliner, this is the perfect product for that too. It's amazing how it is so gentle but removes makeup with ease.
If you're in the market for a gentle cleanser, then I recommenced testing this one out. You will surely be pleasantly surprised.
