Caudalie Make Up Remover Cleansing Water

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.

Caudalie Make Up Remover Cleansing Water

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 Make Up Remover Cleansing Water

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.

Caudalie Make Up Remover Cleansing Water

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!

    it seems like a great cleansing water. I have been trying to find the perfect one but haven’t found any because most cleansing water hurt my eyes. I’ll try this soon <3
    Thanks for sharing this, love!

      Thank you for visiting Chrisylla! My eyes are very sensitive, and this water did not bother them at all. I cannot stand products that sting my eyes!

    I have a sample size of this but haven’t tried it. I got the Bioderma version when I was in Spain and I had the same experience with that that you had with this. It does a mediocre job of taking off my makeup and certainly didn’t even touch my waterproof eye makeup. I really don’t get all the hype for this stuff!

      It’s a nice concept, but I guess it’s all in what you’re used to. I like my cleanser & water!! Happy to know Bioderma isn’t much different.

    Hi Karen,

    Thank you for the review. I have been wanting to pick up this micelar water but am too addicted to Bioderma to make a switch! The Bioderma does take off makeup really well. But since your only option is getting it on e-bay, best be safe I guess.
    And lovely review as always my dear.

    Bubbly!

      Thank you Michelle! If we ever get to meetup somewhere outside of the US, you bring me some Bioderma & I’ll bring you US luxe makeup we can purchase cheaper here in the US. One of these days my lovely girl! xx

      Thank you for noticing my blog design! This was a micellar water remover, and it did take a lot to remove all of my makeup. It will work on the times when I cannot do my full evening cleansing routine!

    • kpsays says

      Thanks Wendy! I needed SOMETHING new for the blog design! The whole micellar water thing is strange to me. Good backup. Ooooh, looking forward to reading your Globes review!

    I love Caudalie, I used a hydrating eye cream from them for a while and was obsessed. But, it was $49 and I just couldn’t justify that price on my then 20 year-old wrinkle free under eyes. I might have to revisit that cream now that I’m 30 though! lol I find nothing really beats oils when it comes to makeup removal, though I have heard great things about the Vichey cleansing water!

      I am planning to do my evening cleansing routine this week. I have used oils forever. But wanted to see what the hype was with micellar cleansing water (oh! so fancy!). Only for emergencies.

    I haven’t tried any cleansing waters yet. I always feel like I need something slightly more aggressive to remove my makeup — mascara really. More companies are coming out with their own cleansing waters, so I think I will try one soon. Great review!
