Review: Boots Simply Sensitive Gentle Micealler Water

I love trying a lot of budget friendly micellar waters, due to the ease of taking makeup fully off and effortlessly. I think I’m on some sort of Boots kick with micellar water as they offer a good range for all skin types and budgets. Earlier this year I reviewed the No 7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water and Boots Botanic 3-in-1 Micellar Cleansing Water but now is the time for the Boots Simply Sensitive Micellar Water.

Boots Simple Sensitive Micealler Water

According to the Boots Website the sensitive micellar water is:

“Boots Simply Sensitive skincare range has been specially formulated to be kind to your skin. A simple collection of products which are fragrance and colour free. Containing soothing aloe vera, your skin is left feeling soft, smooth and cared for.

FREE FROM: fragrance, colour and ingredients known to be sensitive to your skin.”

 It definitely fragrance free, it is so deceptive it smells and feels like water therefore is probably perfect for sensitive skin. I used it in the normal way using cotton wool pads and wiping, and to remove my eye makeup I hold a fresh cotton wool pad with solution on it of my eyes for 10-20 seconds before wiping. So how did this one compare?

In the removal of eyeshadow and general face makeup, all of this makeup is easily removed completely and it left my skin feeling clean and fresh. Unlike other micellar waters it leave my face feeling freshly wash, I feel as though it has less alcohol as its more like you’ve wet your face with water opposed to stripped it and in need of moisturising. I really enjoyed this part and it really does compare with other brands and ranges of micellar water.

The only issue is that it isn’t so good for mascara or heavy eye makeup, although it can easily take off eyeshadow when it comes to eyeliner and mascara it takes a lot of soaking and rubbing which isn’t something I’m keen on. I love using this for my face or light makeup but day to day I do layer my mascara up and it doesn’t always budge, so I’ve taken to using a my eye makeup remover pads for the time being.

The Boots Simple Sesitive Micellar Water retails for £3.99, available from Boots Stores and Boots.com 

So overall I would recommend it to those with sensitive skin, as it’s so gentle but effective but it will definitely need combining with an effective/gentle eye makeup remover. Saying that if you just use a small swipe of mascara due to sensitive eyes this will probably be enough for you. It’s not my favourite micellar water I think the No 7 Beautiful Skin version will always be my favourite but this was a welcome change.

Boots Skincare and Primark Beauty Haul

So todays post is a mixed, predominately beauty related haul featuring skincare from Boots, and makeup from Primark and Superdrug. I’m trying to be controlled in spending and I love trying out budget items, so expect reviews shortly.

 

First up is Boots, I like to test out different budget and own brand items as I believe that you don’t have to spend a fortune on skincare to have great skin, it is all about a good routine. I often experience breakouts at my time of the month but I wondered if there was a way to reduce this so I thought I would try out Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Range , so I am starting off with the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Foaming Face Wash and Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Peel Off Face Mask, for nothing other than I am in need of these two products. I also picked up the Boots Simply Sensitive Gentle Micellar Water, as I’m a lazy girl who loves trying loads of micellar water.

Finally a bit random to haul but it’s essential for me as I had allergic reactions to a lot of bug bites, this cream works wonders the Boots Bite and Sting Antihistamine Cream. I buy a new cream every year as these things are definitely always best fresh.

I seemed to of managed to be extremely controlled in Primark, saying that I did buy the P.S Love 9 Shade Eyeshadow Palette. However with such beautiful shades which could easily work together, I cannot wait to try it out and swatch them I feel like for £2.50 that I couldn’t go wrong. The other thing I picked up in Primark was the P.S Love Round Cotton Wool Pads, I highly recommend buying your cotton wool pads at Primark great quality and only 50p for 120 pads.

Primark Cotton Pads, Ps Love Eyeshadow Palette & Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

Finally just the one item from Superdrug, I was in need of a new concealer and instead of repurchasing the Wake Me Up! Concealer I thought I would make a long overdue return to the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I fancied a change and cannot wait to use this cult favourite again.

Have you picked up any beauty bargain recently, let me know what I’m missing down in the comments.
