La Roche-Posay Micellar Water for Dry/Reactive Skin: A review.

If anyone is a regular reader you would know that I am the furthest thing from a beauty blogger. So when I first heard about this product I have to admit I had to google what it was even for! Apparently, it is water with tiny balls of oil suspended in it. The idea being that the dirt is attracted to the oil and will clean your skin without drying it out.  As someone with EXTREMELY dry skin, I often don’t bother to wash my face because of no matter the cleanser it always just seemed to get dryer and dryer. I’m sure this is not the best course of action, and one that I will probably regret later in life, but for now it seems to work.

When I got my free product in the mail I tried it out right away. The first thing I noticed was that it felt and looked like water. I applied it to a cotton pad and wiped my face, for something that felt like water it certainly didn’t clean like water;  it got an absurd amount of dirt off my face, probably because I don’t normally wash it. It did leave a sort of residue on my skin, which I am sure is due to the oil molecules. But it was hardly noticeable and nothing that bothered me. It definitely wasn’t oily like one would expect from an “oil”, and  for once did not need to use a heavy moisturizer on my face after washing it so it didn’t dry me out like a “water.”
I continued to use this every morning and night for the week. Each day I noticed that my skin appeared much less dry than it was before. I no longer had flaky skin on my forehead. This used to be the worst area, it was like dandruff on my forehead. I also tried it as a makeup remover and it removed everything with little to no effort. No racoon eyes, Yay!

Then I made a terrible mistake, I quit using it! I don’t know why but for some reason I dropped it from my routine. Sure enough, my skin started to get dry again. Clearly, I need to rededicate a part of my morning and evening routine to include this.  After reincorporating it I am happy to report that, again, I am seeing the results I loved before and I will not be dropping it again. Plus even after a month of using it nearly every day I have barely made a dent in the bottle. A little bit goes a long way. When I actually run out of this bottle I will without a doubt be purchasing it again.

**Please note that I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review, all opinions are mine.**

  1. I’m always hesitant to try new products because I have a lot of skin allergies – still, glad this seemed to work for you! 🙂 #RV&HT


  2. Sounds like this was great for you! I tend to breakout a lot from different face products so I am always nervous to try new things. I have overly sensitive skin.

  3. This sounds like a great idea. I have really dry skin too and barely wash it for the same reasons so I need to look into this. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Kaye xo

  4. Hi! How interesting that it helped with dry skin! I’ll have to try it sometime my skin is ultra-dry. Yet greasy at the same time. How does that work! I don’t really cleanse regularly either… probably should! Lol. #bigpinklink


  5. I have really dry skin and am awful at maintaining any sort of skin regime. This sounds like something I could maintain though. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday

  6. This sounds great! I usually use baby wipes to wash my face/remove make up but I might give this a try
    Thanks for linking up to #AnythingGoes 🙂


  7. This is a fantastic recommendation, I too have very dry and also very sensitive skin but as I get older I realise it needs more upkeep. Will be looking into this! Thanks for linking up to the #bigpinklink


  8. Micellar water genuinely changed my life! I’ll have to give this one a try!
