[productsample/affiliatelink] Well, here’s something you didn’t know you needed. It’s one of the best micellars I’ve used and is perfect for summer.
It’s a refreshing cucumber and thyme infusion which I would never have thought of putting together (but I also thought how nice that combination would be with a bit of gin in it and a couple of ice cubes!), adding up to a highly sensory experience that feels completely refreshing on the skin. It actually made me smile when I was using because it felt so lovely on my hot complexion. I definitely get some crisp apple notes from it even though I don’t see that listed.
In terms of actual cleansing – all boxes are ticked. You’re never going to get that supple, massaged and hydrated feel from a micellar, but it isn’t drying at all, and it did take off my (light) make up. I went a second time around before adding serum and then night moisturiser. Really, what I think is so enticing about this is that it elevates the pleasure in a routine cleanse. After all, you can pick up effective micellars for far, far less, but this one has all the summer vibes, is a joy for the skin and the senses at the same time and you can keep it in the fridge for an extra frisson. There is also a gel cleanser version of this (same price, £19) if you don’t like micellars. Find it HERE, non aff HERE.

hi Jane! This certainly does sounds lovely and refreshing! How well does it remove (rather heavy) eye makeup? Am currently using Bioderma Sensibio H2O and halfway the bottle. Still, never hurts to start looking for a replacement well in time, right? Cheers, Wendy
Well, I can’t knock Bioderma as it’s one of my all time favourites! It does say on the packaging that it will take off waterproof make up and is good for eyes and lips as well as the face. When I used it last night I was wearing light make up and waterproof mascara (Benefit). It took everything off no problem but I did have to pay extra attention to my eyes. And agreed.. never too early to have a back-up!
I love a Micellar for removing most of makeup then using a proper cleanse, this sounds so good plus i love love love Loccitane.

It’s really refreshing.
I do love a micellar water, so easy to get everything off!
