Kiko Milano Pure Clean Water Micellar Cleansing Water

I have a love-hate relationship with Micellar Waters, pretty much all of the ones I've used I've never finished the bottles of because I grow bored of them, odd when skincare is a huge part of my routine. I am an avid double cleanser and do this task at least once a day of an evening. 

This new Kiko Milano Pure Clean Micellar Water arrived through my letterbox some time ago now and because I love the brand and adore their makeup, I was keen to see how this would work out.

Described as being a Micellar makeup removal water for normal to dry skin, it quickly and delicately removing impurities, traces of smog and makeup residue, without needing to rinse afterwards.  As you can see the packaging is incredibly basic, but everything you need to know about the product is visible to read and see, the only issue for me is that due to the size of the bottle, it isn't great for travelling with, so it is something you would need to decant if you wanted to take it anywhere with you because there are no smaller sizes available.

Inside the bottle, the formula is really lightweight and water like and to use, you simply soak a cotton wool pad and wipe it across the skin to remove makeup and anything else lurking on the skin.  The idea of a Micellar Water is that the micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin.  This product does a great job at removing most of my makeup, but where it lets itself down is when it comes to removing waterproof mascara, eyeliner and heavy eye makeup, even if you saturate the cotton pad and press it to the skin for a few minutes, it still doesn't remove as much as I want it to do and as such, I am left having to use a balm to cleanse my face.  If you wear just a light face of makeup and don't use the mascaras such as They're Real by Benefit, then this Micellar water works absolutely fine and will remove everything you want it too, but it just didn't work how I wanted it too.

Priced at £4.99 this Micellar Water is available online and in-store from Kiko (here).  I would love to know if you have found a Micellar Water which ticks all your boxes!

  1. Ah that's a shame it doesn't work well with heavy mascara but I often go make up free so this would be great when I'm looking for a simple cleanser. Love the packaging too.

  2. That's a shame that it didn't remove waterproof mascara completely. I do use Benefit Rolleralash but I don't think its waterproof so I wonder if it will remove it?

  3. It's a pity it doesn't work for all of your eye makeup. I'm using one from Embryolisse at the moment and it's great! xx
