Doing makeup is such a fun thing but removing it seems like a tedious job at the end of the day. I have used oil cleansers, water based makeup removers but what I love the most are micellar waters. OMG, they are the best thing ever! They give me a refreshed face and get rid of every bit of makeup. So here I am with the review of a new micellar water from Natio. The formula looked super soothing, so I picked it up. Read to know more about this.
Price: Rs 900 for 200 ml
Product Description by Natio:
This soothing and fragrance free micellar water is a no-rinse-no-fuss alternative to conventional facial cleansers. With Cucumber and Aloe extracts to help calm dry skin. The micellar water deeply cleanses and removes makeup without rubbing or tugging delicate skin. Gentle micelles help capture and draw makeup and impurities from the skin.
Directions: Generously apply to a cotton pad and gently swipe across face, eyes and neck – no need to rub or tug your skin.
My Experience with Natio Cucumber & Aloe Micellar Cleansing Water:
Packaging: The micellar water comes in a cylindrical packaging which is see-through. The bottle is medium in size and hence very handy to carry during travels. The packaging itself looks very soothing and calming just like the name. Since it is see-through, it is easy to keep a check on the quantity. It has a small nozzle which lets out the micellar water but I need to be careful since excess amount gets poured at times. The price is pretty expensive because this gets used up pretty quickly but it does work very nicely. But I wish the price was a little low which would make it a ‘repurchase material’.
Consistency, smell and feel on the skin: The consistency is super runny just like water. It feels like water on the skin which makes it suitable for all the skin types including sensitive skin. It does not give my any rashes or redness since it is alcohol free. This is supposed to be fragrance free which is why it does not contain any artificial smell but it has a mild cucumber and aloe scent. The smell totally relaxes the senses and gives my skin a soothing and cooling effect. I love everything that has cucumbers.
Results: The micellar water effectively cleans my skin getting rid of all the oil impurities and dirt on the no makeup days. It is equally effective in removing all the makeup, be it waterproof or not. I love the gentleness of micellar waters where the makeup comes out without a lot of efforts. Just a few swipes over the face with a cotton pad and I have super clean skin. It does not involve any tugging or pulling unlike a few cleansers. It dissolves the makeup very nicely giving me fresh and healthy looking skin. A total must try if you use heavy makeup products.
