Lierac is a brand that is entirely new to me and one that I have quite honestly never heard much about before. I have recently been trying out some new skincare products and switching up my skincare routine a little in an attempt to find products that; I like, are good for my skin and that do the job they are supposed to. This Demaquillant Douceur Micellar Cleansing Water* from Lierac is a new addition to my skincare routine and one that is working!
Removing makeup can sometimes feel like a chore at the end of a long and tiring day, and it can be so tempting to commit the ultimate sin and fall asleep with a full face of make-up! However, as I'm sure you have all heard, time and time again ... this is a bad thing and sleeping in makeup can have really negative effects on your skin! In the past I have tried a lot of oil based makeup removers, ones from the drugstore/highstreet that have an oil layer and a water layer that you shake together - however these have never 'wow'ed me' and I've never repurchased the same makeup remover twice as I've never found one that I liked enough to repurchase!
Micellar cleansing waters are essentially products that contain oil molecules in soft water, designed to eliminate impurities without stripping your skin of its natural moisture. This is a sample size of 50ml, however the full size of 200ml retails for around £14 and comes in a handy pump bottle which is available from online retailers and Online Pharmacies. This is suitable for face and eyes and is a no-rinse formula, so ideal for those who want something quick and simple to remove the days makeup, whilst gently cleansing and toning at the same time.
I found this product to be quite strongly scented although it states that it is suitable for sensitive skin. However, my skin had no problem with this and it was actually very gentle and soothing on my skin, despite the strong scent. It removes makeup well and I found that this worked well with heavy eye makeup and water proof mascara, which is great! I apply a small amount to a cotton pad and use all over the face and eyes and I feel as though my face is clean and it leaves little in the way of residue. I follow this up with a night time moisturiser, and I feel like my skin is good to go! Although it's slightly more expensive than what I would normally pay, a little does go a long way and it actually works for me. This is widely available online in full size and I've also found it at a bargain price for the trial size on a few different websites!
