L'Oreal Micellar Solution

As I had ran out of Bioderma and didn't have time / couldn't be bothered to purchase one from eBay, I decided to pick up the L'Oreal Micellar Solution instead so I could take it on holiday. I'd heard it was pretty similar to Bioderma, which I love and more than half the price, so thought why not give it a go.

If you're unsure of what micellar solutions are, they're solutions made up mostly of water which dissolves makeup and unclogs pores and this does exactly that. I can't help but compare this to Bioderma and even though I would say it's not as good as Bioderma for removing all of my makeup, it does get rid of the majority, even my mascara. I do feel like I need to cleanse my face afterwards (which I do anyway) but with Bioderma I don't. It doesn't appear to have any scent and doesn't affect my skin or eyes at all, it's also hypo-allergenic. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed and I have actually noticed a reduced appearance of pores!

One bad point is the packaging, the lid doesn't secure properly and sometimes leaks. Also, the dispenser is just a whole in the lid which just shoots out product, I've already used half of the bottle and I've only had it two weeks. I'm going to look for something else I can store it in as I'm wasting so much of it.

Overall, it's a nice product and it makes taking off my makeup so much easier. Apart from the packaging, I have nothing bad to say about it but personally I prefer Bioderma. I think the L'Oreal solution is a close second from what I've tried so far and I think it you're looking for a cheaper alternative then you should definitely try this.
