From their effortless style to their chic accents, there are many things we envy about French women. The one thing we covet the most however, is their flawless skin! Clear, soft and radiant, a French woman’s skin is a thing of beauty. Their secret? Micellar waters. These magical products consist of cleansing agents suspended in water, and thus attract oil and dirt like no other. Obviously, we had to rush out and buy one, so here is our review of Biotherm’s Biosource Total & Instant Cleansing Micellar Water.
The product comes in a plastic bottle with a firmly attached cap. The bottle is sturdy, yet lightweight so don’t be afraid to pop one in your travel bag. The instructions and ingredients are clearly printed on the back.
As instructed, we saturated a cotton pad with the transparent fluid and swiped it across our face. The product went on weightlessly and had a delicate fragrance to it. Initially our face felt slightly sticky and shiny, but that disappeared in less than a minute. The cool part about micellar waters are that they are not to be rinsed off. Instead, they act as one-step cleansing agents i.e. the perfect solution for busy girls like us!
When we glanced down at our cotton pad, we were both shocked and pleased. The product had managed to wipe off every bit of our makeup and grime off our face. Not only did it effectively cleanse off the film of oil on our face, but also managed to take off our BB cream and eye shadow. However, if you have lined your eyes with a waterproof product, we recommend using a makeup cleanser before applying this product.
We’ve been using this product for over 2 weeks now, and can safely say that this micellar water has replaced our nightly cleansing routine! We were worried that by eliminating our nightly deep cleansing treatment, our face would become a target for breakouts, but in reality the reverse has happened. Our skin has never felt healthier or more refreshed.
Gentle enough for the most sensitive of skins, Biotherm’s Micellar Water is every girl’s dream come true. Try it out while we go book our tickets to Paris – finally our skin is French enough to fit in!
