Review: Micellar Water and Make-up Remover

Nowadays, there are numerous choice of make-up remover products and micellar waters as an alternative. I have tried three different products for you.


Mizellenwasser und Make up Entferner Test


I tested the Gentle Micellar Cleansing Water 3 in 1 by Marbert, the Pure Beauty Micellar Water by Alverde and the Aqua Minerals 2 Phase Make-up remover by Charlotte Meentzen. Unfortunately, not all could convince me.


Marbert – Gentle Micellar Cleansing Water 3 in 1

The Gentle Micellar Cleansing Water 3 in 1 by Marbert is alcohol and perfume free. Es brennt daher nicht in den Augen. It does not burn in the eyes. It is suitable for all skin types. Although there is no perfume in it, it has a slight scent. With a cotton pad the make-up can be reliably removed. The eye make-up also does not cause problems with this micellar water. So I can really recommend it. It also feels comfortable on the skin and does not leave any unpleasant film behind.


Alverde – Pure Beauty Micellar Water

The Alverde Pure Beauty Micellar cleansing water has an intense scent. The Foundation can be removed, but not really without residue. For the eyes, I think it is completely unsuitable, because it really burned my eyes. And I do not have particularly sensitive eyes. A look at the ingredients shows the misfits, the third ingredient is alcohol. Also some essential oils are included. In addition, water-resistant eye make-up can not be removed properly. Therefore unfortunately a flop product.


Charlotte Meentzen – Aqua Minerals 2 Phase Make-up Remover

The Aqua Minerals 2-phase make-up remover by Charlotte Meentzen consists of an oil phase and a neutral liquid. Before use, it must be shaken well in order to mix the two phases properly. Before micellar water was popular in the beauty shelves, two-phase products were my No. 1. Even today, I often use a 2-phase make-up for my eye make-up and afterwards the micellar water. The Aqua Minerals 2-phase make-up remover is very gentle to the eyes and also removes water-resistant makeup within seconds. For the rest of the face, however, I prefer micellar water, which does not leave an oily film. But I also use this product every day and I can recommend it with my best conscience.


Do you already know one of the products?

    Das Mizellenwasser von Alverde hatte ich auch und bin auch nicht damit klar gekommen. Bei mir brannte es nicht nur in den Augen, sondern auch auf der Haut. Die anderen beiden kenne ich nicht. Mein Favorit bei den Mizellenwassern ist das von Cattier. Das ist auch sehr gut verträglich und brennt nicht in den Augen. Auf meinem Blog gibt es dazu auch einen Erfahrungsbericht 🙂

    Ich benutze ja viele Alverde-Produkte. Aber leider findet man auch dort ab und zu einen Fehlgriff. Sicher war das hier auch der Fall. Da heißt es, woanders weiter suchen. Danke für den Tipp, so kann ich es bei meiner Suche schon einmal ausschließen.

      Ich habe auch noch 1-2 Produkte die ich ab und an verwende von Alverde. Ja das hier kann ich zumindest echt nicht empfehlen.

    I haven’t heard of any of these brands.
    My mum swears by micellar water – I have never used it.
    She uses Sukin – an Australian brand.
    I might give it a go too.

      Oh sounds interesting. Yes I would recommend it to give micellar water a try.
