I'm a regular user of the Bioderma Micellar water but I'm glad to see more brands releasing their own version. I've been recently testing the L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution* and at first, I couldn't really see any difference from my regular remover. I was pleasantly surprised with the performance, it didn't upset my skin and at a cheaper price.
Until one day, I used the No7 Stay Precise Liquid Eye Liner - this bad boy is mean to remove. I started with the L'Oreal product on one eye but it just wasn't cutting it. So I naturally decided to do a comparison test and use the Bioderma on my other eye. Well, the difference was remarkable: a little soaking needed and much less rubbing, too. I had to use the Bioderma to finish removing my make up on both eyes, because I honestly felt uneasy with the rubbing and paranoid to pull off all my lashes.
Don't get me wrong - it's a good micellar solution, well priced and easy to buy on the high street... but it's not Bioderma!
After that, I started to notice the difference even with my everyday, minimal make up; It's not that great after all, it takes longer to dissolve creamy shadows (like Maybelline Colour Tattoos) and it pretty averagely removes your mascara.
Personally, I think Bioderma is the real deal but I'm definitely interested in trying more Micellar waters, too - Any recommendation?
