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.


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”.


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.


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.


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.
