If you’re not a regular reader you may have missed previous posts on My Micellar Cleansing Water series, here is a quick recap. Over the course of 12 weeks I’ll be testing 12 budget (under £5) micellar cleansers. For the past week I have been using the Superdrug Simply Pure Micellar Water morning and night to remove make up and dirt. Let’s see how this micellar water compares to the cleansers I’ve tested so far.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
The Superdrug Simply Pure Micellar Water costs just £2.69 for 150ml of product. It has been developed for sensitive skin and is formulated to “gently but effectively cleanse away impurities, and help remove make up and mascara, in one easy step.”
This micellar water is housed in a white tinted bottle with a turqoise lid. It also comes with a functional drip feed attachment which works well to regulate the amount of product dispersed.
I need 3-4 large cotton wool pads covered in product to remove my full face of make up and I’ve used half of the bottle in 7 days. I think the full bottle would last me 2 weeks which is fairly good value for money.
The Superdrug Simply Pure Micellar Water has an extremely gentle formula and although it states “avoid contact with eyes” it doesn’t sting them. Despite the gentle formula it stil effectively removes make up, including mascara. I also found the Superdrug Simply Pure Micellar Water to be really refreshing making it very pleasant to use, especially in the morning.
The only negative I have to say about this micellar cleanser is that it does have a slight smell even though it states on the bottle that it’s fragrance free. It isn’t an unpleasant smell but I don’t like it when packaging is misleading.
Overall the Superdrug Simply Pure Micellar Water is a great budget micellar water. It does the job of effectively removing make up and mascara. I would personally prefer it if this cleanser came in a larger size (400ml preferably) as having to repurchase every 2 weeks isn’t ideal and it doesn’t work out as cost effective as my Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water in the long run, but would be perfect for someone that doesn’t wear make up daily or going away on a 2 week holiday.
