Review - L'Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution

I stumbled across this when my usual Garnier make-up remover was out of stock in my local boots and was intrigued. I immediately thought of Bioderma and just had to see if it was up to the job. 
It claims to cleanse and tone while removing all make-up traces. I have to admit I was a little put off by this as I like to remove my makeup, cleanse using a hot cloth cleanser and then tone and moisturise so I felt like this was skipping the cleansing part as I like to feel like I am actually washing my face.

Nevertheless that night I tried it out and I was pleasantly surprised. My eye makeup did come off fairly easily, it took a few cotton pads but I'm putting that down to the copious amounts of mascara I have to wear to make my lashes even visible! I felt like it really did clean my face and left it feeling smooth without any sticky residue. It uses teeny tiny droplets of oil distributed within soft water so there is no oily feel to the product and I don't feel like a slimy mess after using it which is definitely nice!

It claims to unclog pores and although my face did feel clean I was still a little lost without my hot cloth cleanser. I think with a bit of reworking I can probably fit my usual cleanser into my routine alongside the Micellar solution because I am really pleased with how it removed my make-up.

The next morning I didn't notice any breakouts or redness so I'm assuming all is well on that front. I've read that it can breakout some people with very sensitive skin which is a shame because it does claim to be friendly towards sensitive skin. My skin isn't too sensitive but I do try to use sensitive products just in case. 

Overall, although for me it will take some getting used to as I am a woman of routine, I do think that it's a high quality product and ticks all the boxes for a make-up remover. I am still skeptical about the cleanse and tone as it will be a tough change for me but I do feel like it will be a great alternative for those nights when you just can't be bothered with your whole routine.

You can find it here!

Let me know what you thought if you tried this out!
