Hello Everyone! My blog got a makeover! I am really happy with the way it turned out. I also got a new camera for Christmas that I am still trying to figure out. Lots of exciting things going on here at KP Says!
I have always been curious about micellar cleansing waters. However, they aren’t readily available here in the US. So I checked out my options, and decided to try out the Caudalie Make Up Remover Cleansing Water.
Bioderma seems to be the holy grail amongst these waters. I am too paranoid about counterfeit product to order from Amazon or Ebay; which is the only way we can get Bioderma here.
If you aren’t familiar with the concept of micellar water, it is a one-step, no water/no soap method of cleansing. You apply the water with cotton pads to remove your makeup and treat your skin.
Caudalie is a French brand that is easily accessible here, so I thought it was a great choice. They began their journey into skincare from a vineyard, basing their line on the many antioxidant benefits of grapes and grape-seed – which equals WINE, which is a-okay with me.
As you can see, this water contains organic grape water and camomile; and is hypoallergenic.
I love the fragrance – very fresh and spa-like. Not overwhelming or irritating. I really love the scent. It also did not sting my eyes – big plus!
I did find that it takes a lot of cotton rounds and product to completely remove ALL of my makeup. And I don’t wear a TON.
I also found that on the occasion I wore multiple coats of mascara, it took a lot of effort (and product) to dissolve it. No aggressive tugging. Just a lot of time.
However, it did leave my skin feeling soft and supple with no tightness or stickiness.
Nothing against this cleansing water, but I feel a need to “wash” my face after using it. I think it is all about personal preference. I think I require water for my face to feel clean.
For me, it is a good alternative for times when I simply can’t do my usual routine (for whatever reason). I would rather do my normal multi-step makeup removal before bed.
Have you tried water cleansing?
Again, thanks for reading!
