Probably the only thing more satisfying than stepping away from the mirror, make up routine complete, liquid liner flicks symmetrical, is the moment at the end of the day when it comes to taking it all off again. A fresh face after clocking a few hours of make up wear-time is just about the most freeing feeling ever, but when it comes down to the actual process of removal I'm ashamed to say that I've been known to put it off for as long as possible to avoid the hassle of reaching for the series of different steps needed to break those layers down.

This is where I turn to micellar waters - I'd be willing to bet my mascara collection that there's now a bottle of the stuff and a stash of cotton pads hiding away in nearly every room of my flat for such times when I'm craving a make up free face, so it goes without saying I get through the stuff pretty quickly. Luckily for my bank balance, these days there are a whole host of budget friendly options available on the high street and after trying just about all of them I have to say it's the Nivea Sensitive 3-in-1 Cleansing Water that comes out on top.

Aside from the fact that this really does remove make up like no other - one soaked cotton pad per eye, held on gently for a few seconds has you covered for melting away every scrap of mascara, shadow and tough-to-budge liquid liner (Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner, I'm looking at you), it's also so gentle and kind to my skin.

Stressed out skin and sensitivity is something I'm having to deal with on a day to day basis at the moment (let's say one too many episodes of The Walking Dead before bed isn't helping my levels of calm) and the cooling formula of the cleansing water works perfectly to soothe away any redness or irritation, especially as it's free of perfumes, parabens, alcohol and all those nasties! Best of all though, being infused with grape seed oil it actually leaves my skin feeling plumped, fresh and hydrated, giving me the time to potter around without any uncomfortable feeling of tightness while I give my skin a chance to breath before continuing with the rest of my routine.

For me it really does tick all the boxes when it comes to finding the perfect micellar water. Super speedy to use, amazing removal power and kind to my skin all at the same time! Plus, the budget price really comes in handy with my quest to fill every available corner with a bottle of make up remover!
