Maybelline Micellar Water is one of the new items in my vanity kit . I got so intrigued with all the “raves” of my friends so I tried it out for myself  to know if the claims are true and if its really worth the price. Read on for my unbiased review.

What I Like…

This product is something that I would prefer over to makeup wipes (which in my experience never works!).

It does its job of removing the makeup especially the waterproof mascara and heavy coverage foundation (which I use for events or date nights, yah know).

I also like that it’s 200 ml for 199.00 pesos, its affordable and easily available.

This is a go to make up remover, if you’re stuck somewhere with no water this should help you out.

But what I Didn’t Like…

You need a TON of cotton pads or cotton balls to remove all your makeup. I used around 6-7 cotton pads maybe depends on how thick your makeup is.

My skin (combination-acne prone) feels dry after using it. In the packaging they said “no need to rub” but hey, if you’re too tired at night you won’t think of that! Ha!

Final thoughts…?

Maybelline Micellar Water does its job of removing makeup and it’s affordable. I’ll keep it near my desk so when lazy nights come I have something handy.

Have you tried this? Let me know!

Maybelline Micellar Water Review
  • I almost, ALMOST bought this one during their year end sale. Wooh, I should’ve!! This is very inexpensive compared to L’oreal ‘s makeup remover. I might be trying this out soon, but I only have one issue with the drying 🙁 I have oily sensitive skin. Helpful review x

    • Hello Abby, Happy Yippee New Year! Oh dear I CAN totally relate with the “drying thing” and to add is “pulling,rubbing of skin”. Just go with whatever suits your skin. I’d rather go with expensive stuff that doesn’t cause me any problems than buying cheaper ones that will stress me out in the long run 🙂
