Following on from my Vichy Dermablend foundation review before Christmas, I wanted to try out some more of the samples I received from Tomlinsons Chemist in Lytham, and next on my list was this micellar solution. I’ve dabbled with the L’Oreal version for a while and really liked it, and have had Bioderm on my wish list for years but seeing as the Vichy Purete Thermale one is a lot more purse friendly I thought I’d give it a whirl!
I’ve been using this on a cotton wool pad to take my eye make up off in the evenings and love it so far. I would usually reach for the make up wipes to get rid of stubborn mascara and be left with red eyes and sore skin from rubbing too hard, but this is a much more gentle way to remove it. I soak the pads with the solution until they are just damp enough without being too wet, then hold them over closed eyes for a few seconds before wiping away the make up. Granted, it take a few sweeps to get rid of everything, but a lot less than a wipe and a lot kinder to the skin. I’m looking to purchase the full size of this at payday as I like it so much!
Have you tried the Vichy Purete Thermale Micellar Solution? What are your thoughts on these types of cleanser?
