Embryolisse Micellar Lotion* £16.99
I've had a couple of micellar makeup removers in the past which couldn't even remove normal mascara - it was frustrating to say the least. So I was really excited to try out the Embryolisse Micellar lotion which soothes and cleanses your skin whilst removing face and eye makeup. Suitable for all skin types and paraben free, this micellar lotion sounded really, really good. I like the idea that you would only use one makeup product to cleanse your skin - that is so handy for a weekend away or an overnight stay somewhere!
Embryolisse Micellar Lotion contains micelles (which are gentle cleansing agents), cornflower, camomile, witch-hazel, and glycerin which all work together to soften, soothe and tone your skin. My eyes are really sensitive so sometimes when I use new products they get a little sore, but this lotion was very well suited to sensitive areas of the skin. But don't think this lotion is incapable of giving your skin the cleanse that it needs! Micellar lotion removes impurities and everyday pollution (brilliant if you live in a busy city!), and makeup including waterproof mascara.
After using this lotion day and night, my skin felt clean, smooth and revived. It did struggle with waterproof mascara a little more than the everyday mascara, but I still removed it without any issues. Embryolisse is quickly becoming a favourite of mine because their products deliver exactly what the say on the tin, so they have quickly made it into my top 5 favourite skincare brands!
