For those of you that haven’t heard about my Micellar Water Test, 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 Dirty Works Triple Action Micellar Cleansing Water morning and night to remove make up and dirt. I’m now ready to share my thoughts on this micellar cleanser.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT
Dirty Works Triple Action Micellar Cleansing Water costs £4.00 for 200ml of product, which is cheaper than the B. Pure Micellar Water and Boots Time Delay Daily Cleansing Micellar Cleansing Water (at full price) which I’ve reviewed in previous weeks. This micellar cleanser is said to “effectively cleanse, refresh and soothe skin; removing dirt, grime and make-up in one clean sweep.”
This micellar cleanser is housed in a clear plastic bottle with a drip feed attachment which I think is a must for a product that has such a water like consistency as it’s much easier to control how much of the product is used.
I need 5-6 large cotton wool pads covered in product to remove my full face of make up and I’ve used about a third of the bottle in 7 days. I think the full bottle would last me about 3-4 weeks which shows that 200ml can go much further with a drip feed attachment when compared to the Boots Botanics All Bright Micellar 3 in 1 Cleansing Solution which I also predicted would last a similar time frame but it has 250ml of product and doesn’t have the drip feed attachment. The Dirty Works Triple Action Micellar Cleansing Water works well to remove make up, including mascara. It’s also quite refreshing which I like.
The Dirty Works Triple Action Micellar Cleansing Water has a bit of a soapy smell and when wiped across the face with a cotton wool pad it sometimes leaves a soapy white trace. This can leave a tacky feeling which I don’t like so I always have to use a second cleanser to eliminate the tackiness left behind by the Dirty Works Triple Action Micellar Cleansing Water. I therefore found this product more suitable for a pre-cleanse in the evenings rather than something I can quickly cleanse my face with to get rid of any dirt in the mornings.
This cleanser also stings slightly when it comes in direct contact with my eyes, but there is a warning on the bottle. When removing make up from the eye area it can be difficult to prevent this which is why I’d prefer if it was suitable for eye contact.
The Dirty Works Triple Action Micellar Cleansing Water Water removes make up successfully, it has a drip feed attachment making it easier to control the amount of product used, it’s refreshing, fairly cost effective and my skin seems to like the formula of this cleanser. However, I don’t like the way it leaves my skin feeling tacky as if the micellar water itself needs to be rinsed. It also isn’t suitable for direct contact with eyes which isn’t ideal when it’s a product for removing make up, including eye make up. These negatives are a bit of a deal breaker for me, so this isn’t a micellar water I’d repurchase personally.
