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 Vitamin E Micellar Water morning and night to remove make up and dirt. Let’s see how this micellar water compares to the 11 micellar cleansers I’ve tested so far.

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

The Superdrug Vitamin E Micellar Water costs £2.99 for 200ml of product which is only marginally more expensive than the Superdrug Simply Pure Micellar Water I reviewed last week, but you get a whole 50ml more product. This micellar water is rich in Vitamin E and is “designed to gently but effectively cleanse away impurities and help remove make up and mascara, leaving skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. Enriched with naturally sourced Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that will help to shield your skin against environmental damage and premature skin ageing”.

THE GOOD

This micellar water is housed in a clear bottle with a beige lid and branding. 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 about a quarter of the bottle in 7 days. I think the full bottle would last me 4-5 weeks making it one of the most long lasting and cost effective micellar cleansers out of the ones previously tested.

The Superdrug Vitamin E Micellar Water has a gentle formula that seems to agree with my skin type, and although it states “avoid direct contact with eyes” it doesn’t sting them. It effectively removes make up, including mascara. I also found this micellar cleanser to be both refreshing and hydrating which is particularly useful as we enter the colder months.

THE BAD

One thing I would say about the packaging is that the drip feed attachment quite easily unscrews which is a bit of a design flaw and could be a nuisance if you were hoping to take it away when traveling.

This micellar cleanser has quite a strong scent, I actually quite like it as it genuinely smells like Summer in a bottle but some may find this off putting.

VERDICT

The Superdrug Vitamin E Micellar Water makes some bold claims about its formulation and as I haven’t been using this long term I can’t say whether it helps shield against environmental damage or prevent premature ageing, however I can say it has been a pleasure to use this past week. It removes my make up effectively, it is refreshing and hydrating. I also adore the smell and for just £2.99 this micellar cleanser is quite the bargain.

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.”

THE GOOD

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 BAD

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.

VERDICT

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.

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 Simple Kind To Skin 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 Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Water costs £4.99 for 200ml of product, it’s currently on offer at £2.19 though making it extremely affordable. It is described as “enriched with minerals and multi-vitamins, especially designed to give the most effective cleanse, whilst hydrating the skin. It actively works to attract make-up and impurities whilst unclogging pores and allowing your skin to breath.”

THE GOOD

This micellar cleanser is housed in a clear plastic bottle 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 just under a third of the bottle in 7 days. I think the full bottle would last me between 3 and 4 weeks making this good value for money, especially when it’s on offer, although not quite as good value as the Nivea Daily Essentials Sensitive 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Water which costs just £3.69.

The Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Water is extremely gentle but works very well to remove make up, including mascara. It’s also beautifully refreshing which I like. It doesn’t leave me with any tightness or residue and it does in fact feel quite hydrating.

THE BAD

I can’t actually think of anything!

VERDICT

The Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Water is another micellar cleanser that has really impressed me and I would say that this product is on par with the Nivea Daily Essentials Sensitive 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Water. It effectively removes my full face of make up, it is gentle and leaves my skin feeling hydrated, it’s packaging is functional and it is good value for money.

Have you used this micellar cleanser? What did you think?
