When I first read about the new Vichy Pureté Thermale Beautifying Cleansing Micellar Oil £13.75, I knew it was something I had to try as it sounded ideal for my dry skin. Described as a lightweight, non-greasy and luxurious oil, the Vichy Pureté Thermale Beautifying Cleansing Micellar Oil ensures a pleasurable makeup removal. It is suitable for both oil and dry skin types as it doesn’t overload the skin as it transforms from an oil to a milk on contact with water.
The oil contains micelles which gently remove waterproof makeup, impurities, sebum excess and dead skin cells without the need for rubbing. In addition to the micelles, the oil also contains Camellia Oil which moisturises and smoothes the skin, whilst Vitamin E provides antioxidant protection.
The Vichy Pureté Thermale Beautifying Cleansing Micellar Oil uses the same effective technology as Micellar waters, where the ‘micelles’ act as magnets and attract any makeup or impurities on the skin, thus removing them quickly and effectively just like a Micellar water.
The oil has a runny consistency, and to use it you simply dispense four pumps of oil into your hands and massage the oil onto your dry face. The oil breaks down the makeup quickly, even Benefit They’re Real! Mascara which is notoriously one of the hardest mascaras to remove. After massaging the oil into the skin and makeup has begun to dissolve, you then apply a little water which then emulsifies the oil into a lightweight milk.
Once I’ve rinsed away the oil and milk from my skin with a warm muslin cloth, my skin is left feeling exceptionally clean without feeling tight or uncomfortable. It leaves my skin feeling so smooth and clean, and absolutely no residue whatsoever.
I’m so impressed with how effective the Beautifying Cleansing Micellar Oil is at dissolving my makeup, and it doesn’t leave my eyes stinging or feeling greasy either. I also like that the oil has a very subtle fragrance which doesn’t aggravate my super sensitive skin.. I’m a big fan!
