La Roche Posay Micellar Water.

For years I've been looking for a make up remover that is not oily and doesn't sting your eyes. I hate the film that covers your eyes when using an oil based remover so took to researching Micellar Water.

Micellar water is water with tiny groups of oil suspended in water. The oil grabs the make up and the water washes the oil and dissolved make up away onto the cotton pad. There's no need to rinse off and you can follow with a hot cloth cleanse (I'll be touching on this later on) for a good double cleanse. The waters contain no irritants and are so gentle that you can apply male up, take it all off and apply more without redness and irritation. Perfect for make up artists, which is why so many use them on a shoot.

La Roche Posay Micellar Water.
The most well known of these removers is Bioderma which is very hard to get hold of in this country (it is available in Harvey Nichols as part of the Beauty MArt but not online yet) but a lot of French brands have their own version - Avene, Caudalie, Melvita and La Roche Posay. I went for the La Roche Posay version in Boots.

I put a generous amount on a cotton pad, place cotton pad over my eye and hold it there for a few minutes, gently rocking it back and forth. I then wipe in one slow long movement and all the make up on the eye is removed. For stubborn tiny bits of make up, I dip a pointed cotton bud in the water and gently rub away the tiny bits that stayed behind after the initial cleanse. Repeat for the other eye and rub a new pad with the solution on all over my face to remove foundation.

I really should do a vid to show exactly how I take my make up off but I'm a bit scared of Youtube commenters to dare.

What do you use to take your make up off at night?

Actually I am looking for a make up remover that will suit my sensitive skin. I have tried other brands before but it seems that my skin does not like it for it leaves my skin dry. I am interested in trying out this product and hope it works well on my skin.
