SO’BiO étic – Hydra Aloe Vera – Purifying Micellar Water

Rating: 4/10

Let me start by saying that I gave this micellar water such a low rating not because it was bad, but because it was simply not suitable for me. I thought it would be since it’s meant for combination skin, but to be honest it was way too strong for me. I do think it would be a pretty good product for people with very oily skin.

I bought this micellar water because my face gets pretty oily and impure by the end of the day, so I needed something that would cleanse my skin effectively, but also keep it hydrated. Unfortunately, it kind of did the opposite. Even though the product was described as refreshing and hydrating, it made my skin quite dry. I also got a slight rash and my skin felt itchy and a little tingly.

I wish I could say that all natural skincare products are great, but that would be a lie, of course. As with most cosmetics there are also organic products that can be bad for your skin. Still, and I can’t stress this enough, I think natural skincare and make-up are a much better alternative to other products because they don’t contain harmful chemicals and they don’t hurt animals or our planet. Most of the stuff I’ve tried so far has also actually been gentler to my skin.

The reason why this micellar water was too strong for me is probably because it contains quite a lot of citric ingredients, like lime, limonene, citric acid and citronellol. These work highly purifying, but are not really meant for all skin types, especially when used together. So, if you have oily and impure skin, I would recommend trying out this product. It’s cleansing, refreshing, organic, paraben-free, ECOCERT and Cosmébio certified. If you try it or have tried it already, let me know what you think.

Thanks so much for reading and I hope you’ll have a lovely day!
