MY FIRST IMPRESSIONS + REVIEW
When I first opened the box I was greeted by a slim clear bottle with a frosted sticker reading 'BioCleanse Micellar Cleansing Water' and displaying their signature leaf emblem in Tiffany blue which is symbolic of their BioCleanse range. The bottle is 250ml and fits comfortably into the hand. From this label I also learnt that the formula suits all skin types is fragrance free and certified organic. All the packaging in the Estelle & Thild range is gorgeous and makes a beautiful addition to any beauty vanity or display.
I unscrew the cap and take a smell of the solution, nothing. It is completely scent free which I was almost a little disappointed with only because all the other products in their range smell divine!
Estelle & Thild recommends using their micellar water morning and night by saturating a cotton pad and applying it to the face and neck by pressing it into the skin and swiping off dirt and impurities. Below I share my results after use morning and night.
It's Sunday morning and I decide to try the cleansing water out as soon as I wake up. I haven't washed my face with water or any other solutions or skincare but I did thoroughly cleanse last night so I don't think it will need to remove too much. I saturate a cotton pad with the cleanser and press onto the skin and swipe outwards as directed. My face instantly feels fresh, hydrated and balanced, a nice wake up call that's for sure! As promised, it doesn't have any fragrance scent at all, it just smells fresh and is very gentle on my skin - no reaction, no tingling and no redness. Once finished I take a good look at the used cotton pad and to my surprise it contains more dirt than I thought it would, especially after my thorough cleanse last night (see pic below). I tend to get oily through my t-zone so it has definitely removed any excess oil, especially around my nose and chin, and balanced out my skin nicely. I let my skin naturally dry and am ready to apply my makeup and start the day!
It is now Sunday night and I have been wearing a full face of makeup all day (10am - 10pm - see before and after shots below) so I was curious to see how the BioCleanse Micellar Water worked to remove it as well as any other dirt and environmental impurities my face had collected through the day.
I went straight in with the saturated cotton pads starting from the centre of my face and wiping outwards. I had to use 4 cotton pads, front and back, because I was wearing a full face plus eye makeup and it dissolved and removed every trace. At one stage I did accidentally get a bit in my eye but it didn't burn or hurt, it was just a bit uncomfortable. 10 minutes after using it my face was a little red but I didn't feel any discomfort and my skin felt soft and smooth.

I am really loving this Micellar Water! Not only is it quick and easy to use but the results show it thoroughly cleanses the skin and removes any dirt, oils and impurities. I would definitely recommend this product and I can safely say it has secured a place in my daily skincare regime!
My other holy grail products from Estelle & Thild would definitely be their Sparkling Citrus Bloom Hand Soap which my house guests always complement me on and their award-winning Super BioActive Age Control Serum which makes my skin look and feel incredible!
