    Before I got this item, I had never heard of Micellar water before. I went online and what the articles said intrigued me and I wanted to try it. Although it really does look and feel like applying water, the ingredients do more than just water alone. This a good cleansing water for times when you are not wearing makeup. I found that when I wore makeup it did not get all traces of makeup off my face and I would need to follow with a face wash. It is quick and easy to use. My favorite use for this product is to use it as a morning cleanser. I am someone who doesn't enjoy washing my face in the morning with face wash and water because i end with a wet shirt and my sink is wet, then i have to dry my face off and dry the sink off. So after using this for a few days as a face cleanser in the morning, which means i just wipe my face with a cotton pad and a squirt of simple water i found my skin to be more dewy and clear.

    What a great product. It was easy, simple and so fast. I did it in the morning and at night. My face was smooth and of course really clean. I loved the fact that I didn't have to wash it off after! You put it on your cloth, wash, and through away! Couldn't be better!

    I have tried several of these types of products in the past and always go back to Bioderma (which is quite pricey, but worth it!). Actually, most micellar waters tend to be on the pricey side, but for $10 you get a lot of product here - 400ml! I love how simple this product is to use: just dampen a cotton pad and apply it to your face, it does't get any easier! This is also gentle and doesn't irritate my skin or my eyes and I have very irritable skin & eyes! This doesn't quite remove all of my eye make-up, I find myself having to use additional products to get my eye area totally clean. Also, I definitely have to use more of this product than my Bioderma, I don't find it to be as effective at removing my make-up. I like to use a damp, warm cloth to follow up after using this product, which I didn't have to do with Bioderma. Bottom Line: This is good for days you don't wear much make-up, but might not get all of your eye make-up off. This is good if you are on a budget but isn't quite as effective as other products.

    I got this as a sample from Chickadvisor. I was looking forward to trying it out, as I am always looking for something for washing my face when we go camping. I try not to waste water in my trailer as much as possible, so the thought of using the SkinActive Micellar Water sounded great.

    I found that I needed to use two cotton pads every time though, which is ok I guess. But I end up going through way more of the cleaner than I thought. I only wear a little powder make up on my face daily, along with eye liner and mascara. It took some scrubbing to get rid of the mascara.

    I'd probably buy this again during camping season since I don't wear makeup when I'm camping.

    I received this product as part of the ChickAdvisor Product Review Club.

    I normally use Kirkland Face wipes to remove my eye make up. I was excited to try this because I know a lot of people like using Miceller Water to remove eye make up. This did a good job at removing eye shadow, eyeliner and wash-off mascara. Even if I used a lot more of the liquid I was able to remove some of my face make up no problem. I found it was ineffective with water-proof mascara. The mascara did not budge. I would wipe really hard and end up taking my actual lashes with it. So I will still use my wipes for waterprof mascara, but for other eye makeup with works really well!

    I was pleasantly surprised with this product, it did exactly what it claimed, removes makeup, cleanses and refreshes. Love that it's alcohol free so it did not dry out my skin! It works really well and I didn't have to rub to get the makeup off, it just glided off! It's been the best makeup remover I've ever used! The only thing I have to say is that it requires more than one cotton pad to fully cover my whole face, and I still opted to rinse my face after to make sure everything was off. I would definitely buy this product and recommend it to friends!

    I recieved this product to test in return for an honest and fare review.

    I was able to take off my makeup with this but it took a few cotton pads to do so. I dont usually enjoy not completely cleansing my face with cleanser and water, however I did like this product because it was fast and it did make my face feel fresh.
    I tested it with cotton pads and a special make up removing cloth and I really liked using it with the cloth. It didn't make my skin tight or dry and it didn't feel like there was a residue which is great. I guess I'm just stuck in my ways cleansing with water but this is something I'll consider continuing for the ease and convinence especially when I'm tired or busy. I have redness and sensitivity issues and another bonus was that it didn't leave my skin looking red. The bottle is large, it seems like it would last a long time. There is no harsh smell and it never made my eyes sting even removing my mascara.

    PROS:
    -I love the concept of this product. It simplifies makeup removal and would be great for travel.
    -This product is very gentle. It didn't irritate my eyes or skin.

    CONS
    -Doesn't remove mascara as well as my regular cleanser.
    -Takes longer than washing my face with my regular cleanser.
    -I had to use 2 saturated cotton pads every time, or I felt like I was just smearing around whatever makeup it picked up. And I don't wear that much makeup most days! The bottle probably won't last too long.

    Although this product removed my makeup to a satisfactory finish, my face didn't feel quite as clean as it could have been. After four or five days or using as directed, I decided to follow up with a quick swipe with a warm face cloth - much better!

    BOTTOM LINE:
    I would recommend this product for girls whose skin is generally clear or those who don't wear much makeup, because I definitely wouldn't call it a deep-cleansing product. Or for lazy girls - it was certainly easier than bending over the sink and splashing water all over! I think it has a purpose, but it won't replace my regular cleanser.

    Thank you to the Chick Advisor Product Review Club for sending me this product to test and review!

    I received this product as part of the Chick Advisor Product Review club and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It is super effective at removing make-up and my skin for once doesn't feel dry or like it has a film on it after i use the product. I prefer it over my regular product because it is gentle on my skin and doesn't irritate while removing eye make-up. I will continue to purchase this product over my much more expensive less effective old product. I will recommend this product to friends as it is excellent.

    This product was sent to me by ChickAdvisor for review.
    The Micellar Water claims to be an all-in-1 cleansing water, that removes makeup, cleanses and refreshes; and this product did just that. I used it mainly for my eye makeup and lipstick and this took it all away and left nothing behind! I have very sensitive, oily/dry combination skin and it did not bother my skin one bit or dry it out or make it greasy which is impressive, I usually just use makeup remover wipes but they tend to leave a greasy residue behind. This product retails for $8.97 at Walmart, it is a fantastic product that I would definitely recommend and will purchase in the future! Thank you ChickAdvisor for the opportunity.

    If anyone has any questions, or would like to know more, feel free to message me. My social media links are in my profile!

    Cheers,

    Emanda
