I was a bit late to the show with the micellar water craze and only started using it last year, a good few years after reading it on blogs constantly.
My first experience was a bit sad. I got Sephora’s micellar water from Paris. The product itself was fine, but the packaging was rubbish. It had a pump lid, but when you pumped it, it came out from random places instead of the spout. That’s what she said. Bad lid.
This is my third micellar water experience and I got it from an event I went to in March. Say hello to Anovia micellar water. Hi guise, says the micellar water.
I’ve never heard of the brand before and after using it for a week, I finally decided to Google to see how much it costs. And wow, the bottle only costs £1.75!
I’m not expert, but I think that’s pretty cheap.
I use this mostly after washing my face to take the remainder of makeup off my skin, mostly my eyes. Bye bye, panda eyes.
It works a treat and I can’t see any difference in how effective it is compared with the Sephora and Garnier counterparts I’ve tried in the past. The only thing I don’t like about it is that the lid is quite stiff. I’m usually fumbling around with a hand full of cotton pads and it can be frustrating trying to get the lid off when you can’t do it with a flick of the thumb because of how stiff it is. That’s a really great sentence. I should never use it again.
So get this if you’re on a budget and use those extra few quid to get something useful. Like a bottle of wine.
