Embryolisse, a French skin care line, has been featured in magazines such as InStyle, Cosmopolitan and Teen Vogue, just to name a few. As well as various TV shows. They have an excellent selection of skin care products that really preform. One such product is their Lotion Micellaire, a new personal favorite that is a must have for anyone who wears makeup.
Here’s what their website says about the product:
“Lotion Micellaire (Previous Name – Lotion Micellar)
(No Rinse Make-Up Remover) gently cleanses and removes make-up from skin and eyes. The formulation uses gentle cleansing agents (micells) and specific active ingredients to soften (Cornflower), soothe (Chamomile) and tone (Witch hazel). Skin is instantly rehydrated, softer and toned.”
Here’s what I think about the product:
I ❤ Lotion Micellaire…. let me count the ways:
- Gentle, won’t sting eyes. Some makeup removers irritate my eyes. Lotion Micellaire is a gentle as water
- No rinse. Because Lotion Micellaire doesn’t leave a residue, there is no need to rinse. BRILLIANT!
- Removes even the toughest waterproof mascara and lipstains. Mascara that stays put is great until you need to remove it. Some makeup removers leave stuborn mascara behind.
- Great for minor makeup mistake clean up. Apply a to a cotton swab and wipe away any makeup mistake without messing up the area around it. It turns your cotton swab into a little eraser!
- Paraben free and no animal teseting. The no animal testing is a no-brainer. However, there is a lot of debate on whether or not parabens (synthetic preservatives used in foods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and personal care products) are safe. Some studies say paraben can cause cancer as well as other health problems. So for now, I like to choose paraben free products whenever possible. Especially for products that go on, or near mucous membranes, like the eyes and mouth. You can read more about parabens at www.LiveStrong.com.
Apply Lotion Micellaire to cotton ball and wipe away makeup. Voilà!
