Melvita Rose Micellar Water £15.00 200ml (travel sized pictured) - John Lewis

Remember a while ago I blogged about the Latest in Beauty wedding prep box? Well I've had a chance to try out the products and I figured I would start the reviews rolling! First up we have the Melvita fresh Micellar water. If you remember I was really excited to try this as I hadnt dipped my toes in Micellar water hype and this sample size was a great little product to edge me in! 

This sample size did last me quite a decent amount of time, which in my books is a great start. Being a 35ml travel size bottle it gives me high hopes for getting my monies worth if I were to purchase the bigger size avaliable. I only need to take a few drops to a cotton wool pad and sweep it all over my face for a quick cleanse. I do admit that on the nights when I am just too tired to go into a full cleansing routine this product has come up trumps with makeup removal. It is perfect to remove the majority of your makeup off before bed, better than going to sleep with a face covered in products!

I usually use face wipes for the first stages of cleansing before getting into the nitty gritty using my cream or foam cleanser of choice, however these have taken a back seat when using the Melvita Micellar water. I found it a lot more gentle on my skin and refreshing. There was no tightness after using it either which as a nice plus point! Like I said previously the water sucessfully removes a lot of my makeup, prepping my face ready for a proper cleanse! With the exception of Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish I cant dive striaight in with a cleanser unless I've removed some of my makeup off first. Anyone else like this?

I'm not usually a fan of rose scented products so I was a bit wary of this before I tried the Melvita Micellar water, however I was pleasantly surprised, I didnt find it over powering at all. This being said, it has made me consider other ways in which I could use the product. Yes it is a great little makeup remover but also could be use as a nice face spritz in the warmer months - or if you are fortunate enough to be jetting off somewhere for some winter sun - you lucky things! I would simply decant it into a spray bottle and use it as and when for a bit of a freshen, being a water based product it would be perfect for this use. It's only if you're rubbing a cotton wool pad on your face with the product on that your makeup would be removed!

Have you tried Melvita Micellar water? Maybe you have a similar product you would reccomend? Let me know in the comments!

Much Love

  1. I have used up a sample bottle of this, this month - I prefer my Vichy 3 in 1 calming micellar solution x
