I was really looking forward to use this product because I have been looking for a new makeup remover.  Micellar water makeup remover products have been in the market for awhile now and how these products would is essentially like soapy water without the harsh factor to breakdown the repulsion between oil and water (removing makeup).

I have been trying a bunch of  similar makeup remover in the market and while I like that they are generally gentle to the skin and blow the trumpet of "No rinsing needed", I use them mainly because they are generally gentle to the eyes and good for sensitive skin. However, they are not very effective at removing mascara.

When Crème Simon's Micellar Water Makeup Remover claims to be able to remove waterproof makeup, I was excited. So I went around and put it to the test, and yup~ This stuff works even for my waterproof mascara. However, I do need to state that it requires at least a minimum of 2 cotton pads moistened with this remover to do a clean and through job. That's not too bad when I compare this with the other leading brands in the market in terms of its makeup removal abilities. As for its value, this product ranges towards that higher range at $55 for 150ml which is quite costly...

Besides that, I love that it is free from the icky stuff like parabens but as for the claims of having a brightening and detoxifying effect, there is no significant difference for me to witness that. This makeup remover does leave my skin feeling comfortable (ie no tightness or burning sensation) but it does feel a little sticky so I prefer rinsing it off with a cleanser after removing my makeup. Double cleansing is always good after having makeup on for a long duration of time!

I give this thumbs up for its multiple uses, and it works at providing hydration because of the ingredients in this product. However, I am not a big fan of this product. Personally, I prefer toner that consist of  simpler natural ingredients. I find that this toner takes awhile (about 5 minutes) to be absorbed into the skin completely for the after-feel to be non-sticky... which is too long a time for me. That is a big no-no for me.

That being said, this toner does work well at removing excess dirt, grime or makeup on my face and I do use this when I want a little bit more hydration going to prep my skin for a long day of makeup. I will also use this on my hair to reduce frizz and to freshen up.

That's all for this review, I will be touching on the moisturizer and serum in my next review post for Crème Simon! Remember that you can get 10% discount off when you shop online at Crème Simon and simply quote "5GHYJXD" when you are making your payment!
