Avène Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make Up Remover £12.50

As much as I know we all hate taking our make up off at the end of the day, ever since discovering the absolutle holy grail that is Bioderma Crealine H2O Cleansing Solution I've actually come to enjoy it. A few squirts on a cotton pad, sweep over the face, cleanse and it's done. Much to my dismay however, last week I completely ran out of the huge 500ml bottle I got back in March. Not wanting to wait a few days for a new one to be shipped from my regular seller I went into Boots and found the Avène Micellar Lotion Make Up Remover. I had actually had my eye on this for a while after seening Tenneil's post about it. The word 'micellar' got me very excited because as of yet I'm haven't found any brands other than Bioderma and Taaj selling a remover that uses this technology to litterally dissolve away make up.

As for how Avène's offering lives up to the name, I can't quite say it outdoes Bioderma. It takes off all my foundation beautifully and leaves my skin feeling refreshed but not tight. It also dissolves away the majority of my eye make up, but I've been finding I need to use a second product to remove the last traces, where as the Bioderma takes everything away in one go.

In terms of availability this is a lot easier to pick this up from your local chemist that having to order online, but at roughly the same price you'd be paying for the Bioderma if you're looking to save this might not be the best option. I do still think it's a great product though and one that I'll definitely be using up!
