If you are a regular reader you know that I have loved the L’Oreal ‘dupe’ for Bioderma for nearly a year now, so when I saw that Nivea had released their own Micellar water I had to try it. As I really do like the L’Oreal one I will be making some comparisons between the two as the price mark is simular. If you want to read my review on the L’oreal, click here.
You get 2ooml in a bottle for £3.99. The bottle says that it’s for sensitive skin and ‘moisturises while removing makeup’. It says it is free from parabens, perfumes and colours and it helps to reduce the three main signs of sensitive skin; redness, tightness and dryness. This is suitable to use on your eyes but I did notice that it wasn’t a comfortable as the L’Oreal one is, it doesn’t sting or anything it’s just a bit more noticeable that your removing your eye makeup. Apart from that I have nothing negative to say, it’s effective at removing makeup easily and really moisturises my skin. I haven’t seen my redness go down yet but I have really bad redness so i don’t know if I would notice a change for quite a while.
Skin care wise, I think this is better for my skin than the L’Oreal but to be honest I can’t say if I prefer one or the other. At the end of the day they both get the job done and so i think I will repurchase this and continue to buy the L’Oreal one too, a least I now have another option when one is out of stock.
I’ve heard that Garnier have released a micellar water in a larger bottle for the same sort of price so I may have to go and pick that up.
Have you tried this? Have you tried Bioderma? Which is your favourite?
Thanks for reading 🙂
