Review: Avène Micellar Cleansing Lotion

Micellar cleansing waters have literally revolutionalised the way I remove my makeup. I always double cleanse at night and micellar lotions are the perfect second cleanse in my routine.

I love Avène. It’s an amazing brand and their products have done wonders for my skin recently so I had really high hopes for the Avène Micellar Lotion*. As with all Avène products, this micellar water is made using silica rich Avène Thermal Spring Water. It’s suitable for sensitive skin and removes makeup without irritating or altering the skin’s natural protective barrier.

Now honestly speaking this isn’t the best micellar water I’ve tried. It really doesn’t budge stubborn eye makeup and if like me you wear a medium/full coverage foundation then this won’t get remove it in its entirety. And this is me speaking after already washing my face, I’d hate to imagine what it’d be like if this was the only product I used to remove my makeup.

However it’s not all bad news. Although it doesn’t perform well as a makeup remover, it makes the perfect toner. It’s gentle and hydrating and makes my skin feel plump and refreshed after I use it. Since my skin is so unpredictable it’s important that I don’t use anything too strong in the morning and this is gentle but effective so gets a thumbs up from me.

Avène Micellar Lotion is available to buy from Boots, priced at £12.50/200ml. Have you tried this cleansing water before?

I love Micellar water and yesterday i picked up the No7 cleansing water, i have heard good things about it. I all most picked up the La Roche Posay one, they are all priced pretty much the same. Great review.

I too adore Micellar waters! It's a bit disappointing that this didn't remove all of your makeup, as I love to wear heavy eye makeup. xx

Thanks for sharing the review. I really want to try Micellar water. I'm waiting for mum to take a trip to France so she can pick up some Bioderma.

Avene products are great, I have used quite a few of them without disappointment. I am currently using the Avene Extremely Rich Compensating Cream to preserve my skin from these Arctic temperatures.

Thanks

Yeah I was expecting more as I love lots of their other products! Definitely doesn't beat Bioderma or Nuxe!x

Bioderma is fantastic, but it's very marmite - I know a lot of people that hate it. You should pick up the Nuxe micellar whilst you're in France too. x

Thank you :) x

Yeah they're definitely kind to skin, even their acne range!x

Perhaps the fact it didn't work so well for me is a message that I wear too much makeup ... Haha x

I really want to try the No7 one actually, let me know how you get on with it. And the La Roche Posay too!x
