Surprisingly Bad: REN Rose Centifolia 3-in-1 Micellar Cleansing Water

Since Bioderma reached our shores from France a few years back, everyone and their dog has been formulating micellar waters for us to cleanse our faces with.  REN is no exception, and since my bottle of Bioderma was running low, I thought I'd try their Rose Centifolia micellar water in its place- after all, REN's skincare is generally lovely, and it being from the Rose Centifolia range, it was bound to smell lovely and be a joy to use.

Bad move.  While Bioderma excels at removing stubborn waterproof makeup, the REN micellar struggles to remove it fully, requiring a fairly hard bit of scrubbing as well as multiple applications to fully remove my waterproof mascara, leaving my eyes looking a bit red and raw.  Which is a shame, as I wear waterproof mascara most days.

If you're looking at it as a second cleansing step after an oil cleanse, or a light morning cleanser, then perhaps it's good enough.  But as a lazy person's way of removing makeup, it doesn't have a chance against Bioderma.  It does smell absolutely lovely though.  Find it at FeelUnique, where it costs £13.

Disclosure:  Bought by me.

  1. Ha. Sounds as bad as the Lierac micellar water I recently tried! Back to Bioderma or the Avene for sure...
