Eucerin 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Fluid

I have used my fair share of cleansing/micellar waters over that past couple of years and really like using them as a pre-cleanse. Mostly to remove my eye makeup, especially if I’m wearing a lot of eyeliner, I find it easier than just going in with my Hot Cloth Cleanser and making a mess wiping it all over my face.

I have been using this Eucerin 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Fluid* for a good month now and like most people, I compare all micellar waters to the HG Bioderma as this is the most effective one I’ve used to date. So they’re all put through their paces and have a lot to measure up to.

This is marketed as a 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing fluid and that means its a cleanser, eye makeup remover and toner in one. I don’t use it as my toner as I do a full face cleanse after using this with either an oil or cream cleanser and tone after that but as a face cleanser and eye makeup remover it does a very good job, not the best I have used (not quite as good as my bioderma) but it is up there with the best of the rest. It is gentle on my skin and I had no trouble at all with taking this around my eyes, no stinging or irritation at all.

It feels like a hydrating fluid and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight. I find micellar waters handy to have around, I even use them if I make an eyeliner mistake or need to tidy up sloppy eyeshadow fall down. They are really easy to pop on a cotton bud & tidy up like it never happened.

Micellar Cleansing Water

I do like that this is fragrance-free, paraben free and alcohol-free so it is gentle and won’t strip your skin or sting your eyes. It took me two cotton pads to take off my eye makeup and sweep across my face to remove a little of my base too. It was quite quick at removing my eye makeup and I didn’t need to tug or rub back and forth. If you press lightly on your eyes and hold for about 20 seconds and this will make it easier to remove. It did leave a little more mascara behind than my Bioderma but as I cleanse after that it doesn’t bother me too much. I like the fact that this feels gentle around my eyes and that my makeup lifts off without fuss or the need to apply pressure to that area.

The packaging is simple and the product come out quite a small hole, I find its best to squeeze the bottle to get the liquid out. With the opening being quite small you won’t waste product which is always a good thing. I will be decanting some of this into a smaller bottle to take with me on my holiday later this month.

If you struggle to get your hands on Bioderma then I can highly recommend this as an option! Let me know if you have tried this or if you have any other Eucerin product recommendations for me.

July 2014 Empties

What I used up in July 2014

REN Rosa Centifolia Hot Cloth Cleanser* – I really like to use this in the evening as my first cleanse because Its great at removing every trace of makeup, decongesting your skin and it was gentle enough to take around my eyes. Its creamy and hydrating and left my skin very soft. Full review of this here

dr Organic Vitamin E Deodorant – This has been my go to deodorant for about a year now. It does a good job, its gentle and leaves my underarms soft. Its also free of any harsh chemicals which I like. I have many backups – a girl can’t be without deodorant.

No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser – This is my favourite budget friendly hot cloth cleanser. I always stock up on this when Boots do their No7 vouchers. Its a bargain but it is also gentle and you get a lot of product for your money 200ml last me a good couple of months. If you haven’t tried this yet give it a go, I highly recommend it.

Organix Teatree Mint Shampoo* – I finished the conditioner in this range last month. My husband really liked this shampoo & conditioner duo. I thought it was hydrating and left my hair manageable but not flyaway & it smells so minty & invigorating. Perfect for the mornings. When I can get to a Waitrose I will be replacing them & they last for ages as you get 385ml of product.

Caudalie Beauty Elixir – I have a love hate relationship with this face mist. I really dislike the scent but I like how refreshing it feels on my skin. I like using this when I fly (which isn’t that often) as it a really nice way of keeping hydrated on a flight. Im always torn about buying it & tend to purchase it when its on sale.

No7 Soft & Soothed Gentle Toner – This was my morning toner & it felt like it took forever to use up – this 200ml bottle lasted for about a year. It is a gentle toner that helps hydrate and sooth the skin. I did really like it & would repurchase it again.

REN Vita Mineral Active 7 Eye Gel  – I loved using this eye gel and really liked it for my overnight eye treatment. It helped tighten (but not dry out) the skin around my eye and left the area looking bright and well rested. It was so gentle and felt cooling too. It lasted me about 3 months so thats a big plus.

Bioderma – This was my first bottle of Bioderma & I always wondered what the fuss was all about. Now I know. This Micellar Water is SO good at removing makeup and leaving my skin very soft. It was gentle and you didn’t need to tug or rub to remove eye makeup, it didn’t sting my eyes at all. This bottle lasted me for 2 months & that was using it almost daily. I will 100% repurchase this.

Bee Good 2in1 Cream Cleanser* – This was so lovely and really good for my skin. Its creamy texture was soothing and left my skin feeling clean and fresh. Its kind on the skin, good to bees & a British skincare brand so it ticks all the boxes. This has been a lovely brand discovery & I have a few more products from them in my skincare routine. I’m really enjoying them all.

Indeed Labs Hydraluron Face Masks – If you’re skin needs a boost of moisture then these are the masks for you. They’re sheet masks and look funny & a little scary when on but they work like little miracles. These leave my skin feeling plump, radiant and my makeup sits so much better after using them. After using the mask make sure you pat the excess product in to your skin. Shame to waste all that Hyluronic Acid goodness as they’re are quite expensive but if your have dehydrated skin they will be worth every penny.

Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets – These have sadly been discontinued but Home Bargains were selling them for 29p a pack (50 sheets in a pack) so you better believe I bought a butt load of them. I will never run out. These have been a staple in my handbag, on my desk & in my car during this crazy heat wave. They keep me looking shine free & don’t interfere with my makeup.

MUA Undress Your Skin Radiant Under Eye Concealer – This was a little meh & didn’t really do a lot of concealing. This would be better used as a highlighter in my opinion. Oh and this has a shimmer to it, not what I want in a concealer.

Three Products I’m Loving

I use the same skincare and makeup products day-to-day. I seem to be in a bit of a routine with both. I thought I’d show you 3 products that I’ve been really enjoying using at the moment.

B. Pure Micellar Water

B. Pure Micellar Water – this is quite a new brand which is being sold in Superdrug they have a great range of skincare and makeup. I only picked this up to see how I got on & I’ve been using it for about a month now. I have tried various Micellar Waters over the past year and out of the ones I’ve tried this one from B. Pure is my favourite.

It is sold as a cleanser, but I have to say that I use this to remove most of my makeup, however I do use a cream cleanser and face cloth to remove the rest. This is a really refreshing cleanser it smells nice too, it smells fresh but I wouldn’t be happy just using this without washing my face too. I am happy I picked this up and will be repurchasing it when it runs out. You can buy it in Superdrug for £4.99

Tommy Guns Serum

Tommy Guns Weather Protect Dew Drops Serum * There is nothing I like more than to have glossy healthy looking hair, as I get older my hair seems to be more frizzy than glossy. I’m always on the hunt for great haircare products that keep my hair healthy and in good condition. This serum which I received in a goodie bag last year has been a god send during what I would say has been the coldest winter EVER!

A couple drops of this Tommy Guns Serum works magic, you run it through wet hair, I mostly put it through the length of my hair as if I put too much product on my roots my hair gets really weighed down and goes greasy quickly. This serum gives your hair such a fantastic glossy finish and leaves it so soft to the touch. I’ve also tried it on dry hair to manage frizz and to add a little shine (only a tiny amount) and that works great too. This 50ml bottle is going to last me years! You can buy this serum online for £6.50 for 50ml

Nivea Express Hydration Primer

Nivea Express Hydration Primer – The beauty world seems to have gone primer mad this past year and I was pleased to see a high street brand release a really good one. With this being a great price I use it everyday under my base and find it to be lightweight and hydrating. It works well to make my foundation last all day. It not only lasts it helps keep my skin hydrated. Not a huge amount to say about this other than I like it and its a great budget primer.

Nivea have released two of these, the one I have is for Dry & Sensitive Skin and the other is for Normal / Combination Skin. £4.99 for Superdrug

What have you been loving so far this year?

* I was kindly given the Tommy Guns Serum to try. But the review is 100% my own.
