Im very much a lover of micellaire waters/solutions. Ive been using the Nivea cleasing toner for a while and love that it was so simple to use. When my bottle of the Nivea run out I thought id treat myself and go for a more expensive one, cue Vichy.
I love the bottle, the green colour is gorgeous and the writing on the front tells you everything you need to know. This particular one is for acne prone skin which is what I suffer with. Although I havent seen it help my spots Ive noticed that it hasnt broken me out.
The price of this is quite steep. I bought it in Boots for £10.50 (available here) but other people have reviewd even more expensive ones that this such as the Bioderma and they have raved about them so I thought id treat myself.

I can compare this to my Nivea one but im not going to today as Im planning a comparison post to come later.
I use this as my sole cleanser because I suffer with very sensitive skin and over washing it makes my face a nightmare so at nightime I cleanse and remove makeup with this and then just moisturise. As a stand alone product this is great at removing makeup. I use 2 cotton pads soaked in it (one for the top half of my face and one for the bottom half) and its really good at getting red of everything, I cant tell how great it is at removing eyeliner and mascara because I use a seperate eye makeup remover. Its not as thorough as proper face washes but I cant complain, what is left over hasnt broken me out so I see no reason to complain.
The only downside that I can really see to this product is the way it makes my face feel straight after use. It leaves skin feeling quite sticky and wet for a while after and although it does fade after about 30 minutes its still not a great feeling.
All in all, I still love micellaire solutions and this would be totally brilliant if it didnt leave a coating and stickiness on the skin. Id rate it 7 out of 10 and would recommend it to anyone who was looking for a micellaire water in the medium price range.
