Today’s product of discussion is Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution. I have reviewed few of Marcelle products earlier and I can surely claim that I like the quality and the brand deserves some fame, name and love for it. Those who have been a fan of Bioderma Sensibo H2O this one is the best dupe for it with a bit saving. Let’s move on to the details of this all rounder product.
Don’t let its gentle nature fool you: This solution gets its job (well, it’s three jobs) done. It sweeps away makeup, cleanses skin, and soothes irritation. The hypoallergenic formula is gentle enough for even the most dry or sensitive skin and is brimming with naturally calming ingredients like aloe and cucumber. Its micellar technology makes this formula extra effective at removing makeup—without irritating skin in the process. This formula is free of parabens, oil, soap, and alcohol.
How To Use: Dispense onto a cotton ball or pad and sweep over face.
Ingredients: Aqua/water/eau, Peg-6 Caprylic/capric Glycerides, Glycerin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, CucumisSativus (cucumber) Fruit Extract, Cetrimonium Bromide, Sodium Citrate, Disodium Edta, Salicylic Acid
My Experience with Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution:
Starting off with the packaging, Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution comes in a transparent bottle. It is a 3-in-1 solution to perform as a cleanser, makeup remover and act like a toner. Starting with the cleansing activity, it removes every trace of dirt and oil from face in one go. My skin is left squeaky clean even on the hottest days and there is no drying or irritation issue.
Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution is perfume free but I guess the mild scent is due to the cucumber and aloe extracts in the product. The cucumber and aloe extracts act as soothing agents while the salicylic acid makes it the most appropriate product for acne prone and oily skin types. Those who have oily skin and live in hot regions can make the most of Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution.
Now talking about Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution as a make-up remover, it is gentle yet delivers perfect results. Say it a long wearing foundation or the boldest lipstick, one single swipe cleanses it completely. It is gentle and safe for eye makeup removal as well. Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution doesn’t sting in eyes but water proof mascara or eyeliner needs few more swipes for complete removal.
Now the last task assigned to Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution is to work as a toner. It decently balances the pH of my skin, after makeup removal, just soak a new cotton pad in to Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution and roll over the face and everything is done.
As a bottom line, I am so in love with Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution. It is parabens-free and a wonderful cleanser and make up remover. It tones my skin and makes my skin feel clean deep inside with a fresh feeling. It is easy to use and since it is an effective solution, a little lasts long. While Bioderma Sensibo H2O is priced $23 at the moment, you are saving a bit on Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution because both of them perform identically in every manner.
Marcelle 3-in-1 Micellar Solution is suitable for both oily and dry skin types because it contains salicylic acid and doesn’t dry out skin at all. Summing up pros and cons,
