Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Oil with Rose Petals

For the best part of two years, maybe more, I've used the Garnier Micellar Water to remove my makeup. I guess you could say it's been an absolute staple within my skincare routine as I've purchased many a bottle. Micellar Water became such a big thing in skincare after it was first introduced by Bioderma. Admittedly I never tried the Bioderma version as I couldn't justify paying over £10 for something I wasn't quite sure of so I was relieved when the drugstore started picking up on the popularity of it and created their own versions. Now it seems that Micellar Waters are actually being pushed aside for the likes of Micellar Cleansing Oils instead. I was so intrigued by this and was curious to see if a Micellar Cleansing Oil was just as effective as the Micellar Water.

For the last month or so I've been testing out the brand new Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Oil with Rose Petals(£15) to see if it worked just as well as a normal Micellar Water and I am happy to report back that it is just as good, if not better. 
  Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Oil with Rose Petals
The Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Oil formula has a combination of two different oils, Rose Oil Extract and Organic Safflower Oil, along with the Innovative Inverse Micelles(Micellar Water). The fatty acids from the Rose Oil Extract helps to protect the skin while the Organic Safflower Oil(with a high content of omegas 6) helps to intensely hydrate the skin. 

It is designed to remove all traces of impurities on sensitive skin including long-wearing or waterproof makeup, particles of pollution and residue of UV sunscreens, whilst still being very gentle and protecting the skin from it drying out. 

I like to apply it especially after a long, busy day and I have to say it's absolutely divine. It's quite a dream to use. I dispense just two pumps of the cleansing oil into the palm of my hands and massage directly all over my dry face, including the eyes, then I rinse with water and pat my face with a towel. Just two pumps of the oil is enough to thoroughly cleanse and remove every little trace of makeup on the skin. I have to say it was a lot easier removing my base makeup compared to my mascara though, it was being quite stubborn, although the mascara wasn't actually waterproof. It just took a bit more work to dissolve it. The first time I used the cleansing oil to remove my eye makeup I actually ended up with blurry vision, which could be down to me not closing my eyes properly, but it was back to normal within a minute or so.

I have to say it has seriously impressed me. The Nuxe Micellar Cleansng Oil doesn't feel greasy on the skin in the slightest, it has a wonderful silky texture which feels so luxurious and glides onto the face so beautifully. I love the rose scent too which is quite surprising as I normally find rose scented products to be quite overpowering, but that's clearly not the case with this. It somehow makes me feel quite at ease and relaxed too. After using it my skin didn't feel stripped or dry, instead it felt incredibly soft, clean and fresh. There was no greasy residue to be felt or seen either. It is truly wonderful and I am so glad that I discovered it. It has now found it's way into my skincare routine, replacing my trusty Garnier Micellar Water. That's quite a big thing for me as I've used it consistently for two years. 

You are able to purchase it now direct from Nuxe or John Lewis for £15. I can't be sure when it'll find it's way into M&S stores and online but I expect it won't be too long until that day comes.
