In the past few years, I have become significantly more weary about what I put on my skin. I use to swear by makeup wipes for easy removal of my makeup, however as I have gotten older (not that much older!) I have become more aware of the importance of looking after my skin.
My skin is not overly sensitive but I do find certain products can be harsh on it so I always try to opt for products that contain as little ingredients as possible. It is only recently though that I have realized that some brands are not as kind to skin as I had previously thought. Take for example the ‘Simple’ range, I have used their products religiously for the past 2 years and always thought the cleanser was the most gentle option for my skin. I was told recently that this brand may not actually be as ‘simple’ as they claim to be so I have decided to change it up a bit to see if my skin will benefit. I think I will always be a ‘simple’ girl at heart as their products always leave my skin feeling soft, but whats the harm in trying something new?!
I have recently started using the Nivea 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Water now I usually avoid products that claim to be in ‘2in1’ or ‘3in1’ as I feel they generally have too many chemicals which just irritate my skin. I decided to try this one though mainly because of the fact it is water based. I also trust Nivea as a good quality brand and find their products are never too harsh on my skin.
This product can be bought in Tesco and in Boots, now it’s not the cheapest option available; between €4-€5 for 200ml. If it works though, then in my opinion its worth it. I have noticed however that I have used nearly half the bottle in a week and I haven’t worn makeup everyday. This does indicate that this product will need to be repurchased quite frequently which could end up being quite expensive.
I have only been using the product for a week now but so far so good. I don’t expect to see a notable difference for at least another week, but I shall keep you guys posted.
