Way too perfumy and irritating
January 16, 2020 Report
The very first thing I thought when trying this micellar water was how perfumy it smelled, but it didn't bother me... at first. It seems that the more I use it, the stronger I find that it smells. My skin also gets irritated by it; it doesn't get red, but it's like I feel a mild burning sensation if I leave it in one place too long. I like to soak a cotton pad in micellar water and keep it over my eyes for a couple of minutes to help get the mascara off, but it's like this product is stinging my skin when I do that. No redness, just an unpleasant feeling that I've NEVER had from micellar water before. I usually LOVE all products that I try from essence, but this one is a HARD PASS for me. I didn't even finish the tiny bottle.
