I've been using the New Avene Micellar Lotion, perfect for make-up remover and gentle cleansing. I've been using it as my go-to eye make-up remover and can confidently say this is one of the best eye make-up removers after Bioderma. This is the first product I've tried from Avene and would like to try more of their range, so if anyone has any recommendations please let me know! If you have sensitive skin or sensitive eyes this would be worth trying, it's very gentle on the eyes. I've not used it all over but I would imagine it to be just as gentle over the face. It does have a very subtle scent which is pleasing and fresh. What's great about this is the no-rinse formula, so if you did want to use this as your daily cleanser you don't need to rinse. You're not left with any residue on the skin or eye area. You can also use this on the lips to remove lip stains or lipsticks.
Thanks to the Thermal Spring Water it's very soothing on the face and eyes making it non-irritating. If you're a fan of the Bioderma this would be a great one to try.
I place two cotton pads together and soak them both, then gently place them over the eyes and gently pat/dab onto the eye lid. It's key to try and wait a little while to let the Micellar Lotion break down the eye product. Then gently sweep away, sometimes depending on the amount of makeup you have on you may need to do this twice. Especially if you're wearing water-proof mascara or eye liner.
You can purchase the New Micellar Lotion from Boots stores and online. This bottle is 200ml and retails £12.50 which is reasonable, don't you think?
