    Just not right for my skin type

    As a makeup remover: As a make-up, this is actually pretty good. It's on par with other micellar water's that remove makeup. With non-waterproof makeup, it's effortless. With waterproof makeup and hard to get off makeup like eyeliner, it definitely takes a couple of passes and a bit of hard rubbing, but that's normal; an oil-based makeup remover usually works better at this. You can see the picture to see how it removed waterproof makeup (about 3 pads of wiping, scrubbing hard on the eyes with the last one).

    As a cleanser: I wouldn't recommend this for people with combination skin, like me, but think it would work very well on oily skin. The first time I used it I felt my face was quite tingly, almost burny and uncomfortable, even though I am used to Micellar water. On subsequent uses, I didn't experience this, but it was a bit alarming.

    Part of the problem, I think, is that this isn't straight micellar water. I have a bit of a pet peeve with Micellar Water that adds a lot of different stuff, but at least this is advertised as some sort of special water, so you're expecting extra additions. I think those additions though and the added fragrance (not necessary for a cleansing water in my opinion) are what is causing it to be a little drying on my skin. I like to be able to use micellar water across my lips and eyes, but feel this is a little chemical laden and chemical tasting for this.

    I think it would be a good fit for oil skin as it did dry out my skin a bit, but it also left it soft; just not right for my skin type.
