L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution
£4.99 200ml

The L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution is a mild water-based cleanser and makeup remover, one of nine products in the new L'Oreal Skin Perfection range. A solution formulated by the French beauty industry, micellar water contains microscopic oil molecules which lift impurities, makeup, including waterproof and eye makeup and lipstick, and excess oil from the skin. The name 'micelle' is given to spherical liquid crystals. Micelles are particularly good at trapping small quantities of oil. This is why they are used particularly as makeup removers. Any product that contains a detergent can be described as "micellar water". It is likely that there are micelles in other makeup removers that don’t mention their inclusion.

The L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution removes makeup, cleanses the skin, and tones and soothes it. Launched backstage at the Julien MacDonald show during London Fashion Week February 2013, it is described as a high performance balancing cleanser for sensitive skin. With no need to rinse and as used by international makeup artists worldwide, cleansing waters or micellar solutions cause the least possible trauma to over-worked skin because these products, and there are a few, look and act more like Ph-balanced water than traditional high-foaming cleansers. Alcohol-free. Dermatologically tested. Helps perfect skin texture through cleansing - it cleansed my skin completely. Non-drying because of the glycerin content, resulting in a less stressed, less taut skin. Mild. Efficient. Hypo-allergenic. Use twice daily morning and night. The correct application is to hold the product on cotton wool over the dry areas to be cleansed for a few seconds and then swipe. The L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution £4.99/200ml. Available from Boots or Superdrug stores and larger supermarkets nationwide.
