Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water - 100 ml

When we wash our faces at the end of the day, we want them to be clean—like, really clean. And that doesn’t include the smudgy remains of eye makeup that are so often left behind. This micellar water removes all traces of makeup (even that stubborn waterproof mascara) while gently cleansing and toning skin with natural and nourishing ingredients. It’s time to leave your raccoon eye days behind you.

Not for me

I did not care for this product at all. The directions say not to rinse it off, but it left my skin really tacky, and unpleasant feeling. I also really disliked the smell. It also did nothing for removing my mascara. I think this is one makeup remover that is just not for me.

So disappointing for Caudalie
Purchased

I've been looking for the perfect makeup remover, and after falling in love with Caudalie's Divine Oil I knew this was the next to try.

The scent is absolutely wonderful. Very light & fresh. But when you try to take off your makeup (and by the way, I only use natural makeup, no waterproofs) it doesn't actually work.

The first day I used it was in the evening to take off my mascara and powders. In the morning I noticed black rings under my eyes, like it never came off, so I did it again. I didn't wear makeup to work the next day, but when I came home I still had little black flakes of my (non-waterproof) mascara under my eyes!

The description on this product is far from the truth. I will stick with their oils and keep on the hunt for a makeup remover that works for my routine.

Gentle but not very effective
Purchased

I was looking for an effective but gentle eye makeup remover. This smells good and is very gentle, but it doesn't do a very good job removing my favorite everyday mascara. Would not purchase again.

Didn't Do Anything For Me

I LOVE Caudalie, but this makeup remover did nothing for me. It didn't take off any of my makeup. It moved it around but it didn't take it off.

Sub par

I was excited to try this product because I like the idea of my makeup remover being water. However, I was disapointed because it barely removed any makeup. I might as well of gone to my sink and used tap water...

Just ok
Purchased

I bought this because I wanted to try out micellar water and see if it was worth the hype. I used this as a makeup remover and it took everything off, but I only wear concealer and blush. I can't see how this would be a good makeup remover for someone who wears more than minimal makeup. Also, it left a really sticky feeling behind on my face. I'm going to keep using it, but I'm definitely not going to repurchase.

It was ok
Purchased

I love Caudalie products, ever since I was in high school over 10 years ago. They're great on my skin and I love the fragrance of their products, but the makeup remover was lackluster.

It made my skin really soft, but I never felt like all the makeup had been removed. It also took a lot of of product to get my mascara off, and there would always be so much left over when I woke up in the morning.

I don't wear makeup everyday, but when I do, it's the good stuff where a little goes a long way. This might work better for those with a daily, light makeup routine, not for the heavier products.

On the Fence

I want to love this but as new products come out I think there are better options.

When I first heard of micellar water, this was the first brand I found and I loved the way it made my skin feel. I saw a difference in my skin in about a week.

However, it is not the best makeup remover. I have to use 6-8 makeup pads to get off eyeliner, mascara and lipstick... not even touching my face or attempting to get off waterproof eye products of liquid lipsticks.

Still, the way it makes your skin look and feel is incredible. Now, I use it more like a toner. After removing my makeup and cleansing my skin, I use a cotton pad to apply this as I think it's hydrating and replenishes the oils that the cleansers strip away.

Doesn't look the same as shown
Purchased

I received the cleansing water in a totally different bottle but I'm assuming it's the new packaging. That note aside, the water does work. I have a dry combination skin; so my T zone typically is super shiny then comes the super sensitive dry cheeks and rest of face. This water cleanser helped me remove make up without irritating my face or leaving it flaky dry like most other harsh cleansers. I don't use waterproof mascara so I dont have problem with stubborn stains like some reviews suggested. I give it 4 stars! well earned.

Sort of does the job
Purchased

I was expecting this to really get all of the eyeliner that I wear (which isn't much at all honestly) and I am always left with just a little bit of a raccoon eye. Nothing that I am worried about going to sleep with though. What I do really like about this product is that there is no burning or irritation to my sensitive skin. I do love how gentle it is on my skin and around my eyes, I have not found that before.
