Maybelline Micellar Water Review

What is Micellar Water?

Micellar Water is made up of micelles a  tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules suspended in soft water.

How it is use?

Micellar water, you can moisten a cotton pad with a few drops of the skin cleansing solution, so that the pad itself becomes moist. Then you will swipe the pad across your skin and you'll see the dirt and make up from your skin transfer to the pad.

How does it work?

The idea is that micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin, Therefore, micellar water can be used as a facial wash, make up remover and moisturizer all in one.

I do wear make-up a lot and proper skin care routine is important at night to avoid zits and pimples to come up. I think last year I've heard Micellar water that will shorten your make up skin routine shorter. Today I'll be reviewing Micellar Water from Maybelline.

The Review

The Swatch Test :Matte Lipstick, Eyeliner, Mascara Waterproof, Matte Foundation

Maybelline's Micellar water packaging is just a typical clear bottle with a pink cap. It clearly states information about the product, including the product name, product claims, size in ml/FL Oz, How to use it, manufacturer. Which is also written in another language which I think Japanese. For only 199 pesos this might be a good catch for those who wants to try out a Micelar Water.

If you're asking if this one really cleanse the face here is a sample swipe with this product.

First Swipe

Matte Foundation : Instantly removed the Matte foundation
Waterproof Mascara: Only lightens it's color
Eyeliner: black color is still visible
Matte Lipstick: Removes only a part of it

Second swipe

Matter foundation : Completely Vanished
Waterproof Mascara: Only lightens it's color
Eyeliner: Black color lightens
Matte Lipstick : Removes only a few parts again

I keep on doing the swipe motion until I was able to successfully remove all of the products. It takes me about 5 more swipes to take off all of the products at my hand. I also try this product to my face, removing my makeup. While I am removing my make-up I noticed that it leaves this moist, smooth texture of my skin that for me is not so comfortable as for myself until it completely dries out. Maybelline Micelar Water removes my makeup, but it takes time. It doesn't have a fragrance just like a waiter.

Is this worth the money?

For only 199 pesos you can get to try a Micelar water. Take note that waterproof products are hard to be removed from this Maybelline Micelar Water. It does remove makeup to your face, but for me you still need to wash off your face with soap and water to remove all the products from your face.

This Maybelline Micelar Water is perfect for those who on the go travelers and road trips to instantly removing your make up without using a soap and water. In that sense, I think you need to have this product also it moisturize your face to just be patient on shipping it to your face gently and it will remove all your make up.

 For my #DashingMomSquad, Have you tried a Micellar Water? What are your thoughts using this product.


  1. Yes po mommy Rayrose. I've tried Micellar Water before and up until now :) I use Garnier Micellar Cleanseng water as my make up remover. As I've said before, cleaning up becomes an easy-peasy, uncomplicated process lalo na sa mga tamad na maghilamos pagdating sa gabi like me. It promises to shorten my night skincare routine because it acts as a cleanser, a toner, and a moisturizer in one! Plus, it acts like a magnet that lift off dirt even my water proof mascara ang liquid eyeliner. Garnier Micellar water practically good at making my skin soft and clean and fresh after use.

  2. I got two bottles of Micellar Water which I gave to a friend. She couldnt thank me enough as she uses the product to clean her face. She told me she can be real lazy washing her face in the evening. So she uses the Micellar Water instead. She swears by the effectiveness of the product. I haven't tried it and hearing such story from my friend and reviews such as yours make me conclude that indeed, Micellar Water is one great invention. And now I wish I have left that one bottle for my use.

  3. I use micellar water as a toner; but not this brand. I will try using this brand, to see if i get the same result as I had with the brand I use now.

  4. I'm currently using this micellar water, too. I bought this out of curiosity and I use it only as a makeup remover, though I must admit it doesn't work quite well with my waterproof mascara.

  5. P199 is reasonable for makeup remover because I know some brands are expensive. Yunlang, it takes time to remove the make-up.

  6. I've tried this and this was my go-to 1st step in my skin care "regimen" (lazy regimen, that is, lol). However, I bought Garnier micellar water recently and it's much more powerful than Maybelline. Try it!

  7. I have never tried micellar water before. I don't really wear much make up because I work from home. But I've always been curious about this. Maybe I just might give this a try.

  8. I bought this Maybelline Micellar Water before. I really how it works and can easily remove makeup and dirts.

  9. Haven't used one like this but maybe I can try it if given the chance. As long as it doesn't sting, I can use it.
