I can finally add a new micellar water to my the-micellar-waters-I-already-tested list! I really thought that the Garnier one would me my favorite until the end of my lifetime – especially after my post comparing five micellar waters, but I was wrong. A few months ago, I decided to give the Corine de Farme Purity Micellar Water a go, especially because 97% of its ingredients are from natural origin. It is also paraben-, colorant-free and hypoallergenic and also suitable for dry or sensitive skin.
This micellar water removes my make up like no other product. It is gentle to the skin, but at the same time very efficient. It also cleanses the eye makeup nicely, but it sometimes slightly irritates my eyes (actually nothing crazy, really). The reason why I’m pointing this out is because the label says it is ophthalmologically tested and I would assume it to be completely neutral to the eyes. But at the same time, products have to be somehow intense to remove all that mascara and eyeliners, so there is probably no way of escaping it. I even tried eye removers that were much much more irritable than this Purity Micellar Water, so I’m not complaining. There is no sticky layer left on my face after using it, which I obviously like. Another small thing that bothers me is the pump, it’s impossible to get a small amount of the water out and it sometimes just spurts out without control. But I still love using it because it is so so efficient!
You get 500 ml of the micellar water for around € 10 in Slovenian stores, a real bargain if you ask me. I’m really looking forward to trying more of the Corine de Farme products, they haven’t disappointed me so far!
