La Roche- Posay Micellar Make up Remover Gel

Whether you love skincare regimes or find it all a bit of a faff. It’s a part of any beauty lovers routine that we all know we should be doing. I have a real love//hate relationship with skincare, I love the difference it makes to my skin and when I have the time I really enjoy getting out all my lotions and potions. I hate it when I’m tired or in a rush and I’d rather be doing anything rather than carrying out a long skincare routine. Rather than reaching for the dreaded face wipes what else can we do? La Roche – Posay have come up with a revolutionary new way to remove your make up.

Could La Roche – Posay Physiologique Make -up Remover Gel, a no rinse cleansing gel be the answer to our tired night time routine? The La Roche – Posay Physiologique Make -up Remover Gel* is a fuss free gel that is applied to a damp face then wiped off with a cotton wool pad.

Cased in a blue coloured, easy to use pump bottle. The gel itself is clear yet in the bottle the gel looks like a bottle of cheap hair gel lol. It doesn’t however have the same nasty ingredients. The gel is free from soap, alcohol and has no colourants or parabens. This with its physiological PH and La Roche – Posay Thermal spring water, makes it perfect for even sensitive skin.

La Roche-Posay Make-Up Remover Micellar Water Gel is a gel facial cleanser which gently cleanses normal to combination sensitive skin. The physiological formulation with La Roche-Posay thermal spring water contains cleansing agents selected for optimal tolerance, high make-up removal power whilst hydrating and soothing the skin.

The directions on the bottle are ridiculously unclear stating “apply to wet face. No rinsing.” To use I simply wet my face after removing my eye make up (with my facial make up still in tact) Then apply a few pumps of the gel to my hands and gently apply the gel to my face. Then with a cotton wool pad wipe over my face removing the gel and make up at the same time. I then repeat again and my skin is make up free.

It felt really cooling on the skin and soothed any irritated patches. It’s not at all harsh and has a pleasant, subtle scent. After the second cleanse my skin feels really clean without feeling dry. I’m really enjoying using this, I found it does take a few goes to remove medium to heavy make up. I don’t know if this is because it’s so gentle.

Overall I really love how gentle and soothing it is to the skin. It still takes a little while to be make up free, so it doesn’t exactly answer my prayers for quick, one wash make up remover. It does however make cleansing a breeze and leaves your skin feeling amazing. It’s perfect for the summer months when make up tends to be lighter and the cooling sensation is godsend during the hotter weather.
