Personally, I am a firm believer that cleansing is the most important in one’s skincare routine. It’s usually the first thing we do after waking up and functions to remove any dirt, impurities, or makeup from the skin, keeping it clean and fresh. If you have sensitive skin and currently have limited cleansing options, then you probably should try this!

This cleansing water is colourless since it has no added colorant. It’s watery which makes it glide easily on the skin and doesn’t feel harsh on my skin after wiping off. The product is mostly scentless as it does not contain any fragrance but please note that it does have the general Micellar Water scent. However, this has a milder scent than the Garnier’s Micellar Water.
I usually use cleansing water in the mornings to remove the skincare product I have on overnight. It has been a while since I used a cleansing foam simply because I love the gentler option.I have quite a number of cleansing waters from other brands but this is the latest one in my stash. I noticed that I reach for this brand more as it does not leave any slippery film or tackiness on my skin post cleansing. It feels good as my skin’s natural moisture is not strip off after the cleansing. In terms of the performance, this one really took off all the products and impurities I had on my skin. I have tested this cleansing with foundation, concealers, eyebrow pencils, eyeliners, waterproof liquid lipsticks and blushers. It does a really good job with all of the stated products, effortlessly!
Do note that you need an eye or lip make up remover in order to thoroughly clean waterproof mascara, lip tint and waterproof lipstick. This cleansing water did a decent job in removing almost all of the waterproof products. For mascara/waterproof makeups, do hold the soaked cotton pad for 3 seconds before sweeping it across the eye lids/area. Repeat until it’s completely removed.This did not make my eyes blurry and there was no bitter taste when I licked my lips. Some cleansing/micellar waters do dry out the lips, but this does not do that so it is a good one in my book!
I did not experience any of adverse reactions like irritation, redness or itchiness while using this cleansing water.
