L’oreal Micellar Water Refreshing Review

Is it just okay to say that 2016 is the year of Micellar Water? A few months ago, Maybelline released their version of affordable micellar water here in the Philippines and it was a big hit!

I received an email from Beauty MNL that they are introducing L’oreal’s Micellar Water. I immediately signed up for the VIP waiting list.

There are two types of Micellar water that was released. The blue, which is the one that I have is formulated for gals who have oily skin. The other one, the pink bottle is suited for ladies who have dry skin.

As per the label:

3-in-1 Cleanse, Remove makeup and Soothe

Unique micellar molecules act like a magnet to remove makeup residue and impurities from skin thoroughly. Easy and gentle. No rinsing.


I swatched some different makeup items on my arm for you to see how effective it is. After two wipes, makeup like foundation, concealer, eyeliner, powder blush and regular matte lipstick is almost gone. Waterproof mascara and liquid lipstick takes more than two wipes for it to completely be removed.

My thoughts?

It is almost scentless and it does not sting my face or eyes in any way. I just noticed that it lathers a little (like soap with small bubbles) when you rub it on your skin a few times.

I love this because the bottle is a little more travel friendly and it has two formulations depending on your skin type. I will definitely recommend this to everyone because it is an effective cleanser and makeup remover. No breakouts experienced while using this product. It is also very affordable considering the amount of product you get.

Price: Php225.00/ 250 ml (got mine for Php175 introductory price)

Have you tried this yet? I might do a post comparing it to Maybelline’s version. Comment down if you like me to do it!

  1. I bought mine at Lazada last 12-12 for only P112.50 😊..great deal right! Anyways, I’ve tried it couple of times it really removes my makeup but not quite of the mascara I used. And I’m a person who still cleanse my face w/ soap and water but overall this really helps cleanse my face. 😊
