Review: L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3in1 Purifying Micellar Solution

I just finish the second bottle of L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3in1 Purifying Micellar Solution, so I think it's time I finally review it. There's been written a lot about this products, some people love it, others don't like it. Well, for me this is a good product, although it does have some negative sites as well lik the packaging, which I don't like at all.


Let's talk about the packaging first then. It's a square clear packaging with white lid and it contains 200 ml of products. Opening is very big and you can easly use too much product, much more that you need. So the packaging is a big minus. I tend to wear very heavy eye makeup, so I usually use it mainly on my face, because otherwise I need at least 3 cotton pads only for eyes. It cleans my face makeup pretty good and it leaves me fresh feeling (some people said that it feels oily, but I didn't notice that). I don't wear waterproof makeup except eyeliner and I noticed that it cleans it very good, but it doesn't clean mascara very well. If I drop too much product on a cotton pad and I use it ob my eyes, it can irritate them, otherwise it doesn't (so yeah, less is better).  I don't wear makeup every day (ok, lately I do because I'm trying a lot of new eye looks and also because of testing products), so I didn't use it every day, but if I would I'd finish it in less than a month, which is very quickly to me (the reason for that is probably also that you can easly drop too much product on a cotton pad). In the packaging it foams, but I didn't notice that that would affect on the usage or my skin.


Many bloggers did a comparison with Bioderma Sensibio micellar water and came to conclusion that Bioderma is much better. I had a Bioderma sample at home, so I decided to compare them and I did a little test. A half of my face a cleaned with Bioderma and a second half with L'Oreal. I used the same number of cotton pads for both sides and to me they worked the same. They also felt the same on my face. I can't compare packaging because I never had a full size Bioderma. I also didn't notice that Bioderma would clean mascara better and it irritated my eyes as well if it came in my eyes. So for me Bioderma isn't a winner but that's just my personal opinion. As you know products work different for different people.


I'm satisfied with this products, I only have a problem with the packaging. Besides too big opening (wasting product) it only contains 200 ml, which is very little. If I would use it on a daily basis I'd finish it in less than a month (if I'd use it for eyes as well - I wear strong makeup). It's available in Müller, DM, Tuš drugstore and maybe somewhere else as well. The price is different from a drugstore to drugstore, it costs from 4 to 6 €.


Some time ago Garnier came out with micellar water, which is practically the same as this one, just that is bigger - it contains 400 ml. The price is something less than 6 €. I bought it in DM and I can't remember the exact price anymore. But I do remember, that I checked the price of Garnier and L'Oreal micellar water in Tuš drugstore and the price was exactly the same. I tried Garnier already and I like it, it has better packaging, it works the same as L'Oreal one, except that it's even worse for removing mascara as L'Oreal one. It foams a lot in a packaging, but I didn't notice that would influence on the usage or my skin. From now on I'm buying Garnier one, because for the same price I get two times more of a products.

Have you tried L'Oreal micellar water? Which micellar water is your favourite? Thank you for reading!

  1. I used up probably two or three bottles of the L'Oreal micellar water, it's ok, but I tried the Garnier one and it's just as good but cheaper so I think I will stick to that one :)

  4. I've almost used up my second L'oreal bottle, I really like it and it takes off my mascara really well. But I'll try next Garnier if I see it cause right now they don't sell it here in Russia.

    1. L'Oreal and Garnier have practically the same indigredients. :) But L'Oreal was better for removing mascara than GArnier to me.

  5. Meni pa Garnier čisto odstrani maskaro in mi je res super že samo embalaža in pa cena...kar se pa Bioderme tiče imela sem testerje probala sem micelarno in pa eno kremo...po micelarni sm mela celo faco živo rdečo, peklo je ko hudič, čez noč se mi je pa polno izpuščajev naredilo...verjetno sm edina da mi Bioderma ni odgovarjala:S

    1. Res? Super. Meni pa nikakor in mi ni jasno, zakaj. Z L'Orealom imata praktično iste sestavine, pa mi L'Orealova boljše odstrani.
      Nisi edina, sem že večkrat brala v kakih komentarjih, da puncam Bioderma ni odgovarjala, nekaterim iz istega razloga kot tebi, je pa res več takih, ki jo obožujejo. :)

  8. No meni pa obe2 lepo odstranita maskaro :) Očitno je tudi odvisno koliko je maskara topljiva.

    1. Verjetno res. Meni popolnoma odstrani maskaro samo dvofazni odstranjevalec. :)

  9. Meni je bila ta Lorealova všeč, samo embalaža me je malo jezila. Včeraj sem si pa končno kupila Garnierovo! Sem vesela k radio :P zvečer sem jo že preizkusila in je super, tako odstranjevanje kot embalaža :) Bo postala kar moja stalnica se mi zdi.

    1. Meni je Garnierova tudi zato ljubša, 100x boljše pakiranje. Saj to me je pri L'Orealovi najbolj zmotilo.

  10. Jaz tudi ne opazim razlike med Lorealovo in Biodermino vodico, obe sta približno enaki, me pa pakiranje Lorealove ne moti tako zelo ;)
    Naslednjič pa zagotovo kupim Garnierovo

  12. Jaz prisegam na Biodermino, je pa res, da sem zmeraj dobila kakšno ugodno ponudbo zanjo in nisem iskala novih micelarnih. Morda ko mi Biodermine zmanjka in če ne bo ugodne ponudbe, poskusim kakšno drugo.

  13. Nisam jos probala nijednu micelarnu, stalno razmisljam kako bi mogla lai ne privlace me pogotovo jer se koriste sa tim blazinicama koje mi samo iziritiraju kozu

  14. Jaz pa tele res ne maram. XD Embalaža je itak grozna, po njej me oči pečejo pa še slabše mi odstranjuje makeup kot Bioderma. Bom pa še tolo od Garnier za foro sprobala. Če ne za drugega, jih lahko uporabim za odstranjevanje swatchev iz roke pa za hitro čiščenje čopičev. :D
