Written By: Layla
Writing about one of the most-loved 'Micellar Waters' in the beauty industry - Layla's sharing her thoughts on the Lancôme Visage Micellar Water along with a guide on how to use it on your skin type to ensure you see the benefits.
As a lot of you know, I LOVE writing beauty product review articles and it makes me so happy when I manage to find some time to sit down and get these posts online.
I'm a big fan of trying different beauty products and thanks to Sprinkles of Style, I'm now lucky enough to work with brands from all around the world - brands which when I was younger, could only dream about using!
My skincare regime changes throughout the year - in winter, a lot of my beauty products are highly nourishing and luxurious whereas in the spring / summer months - I choose products that are extremely lightweight, refreshing and cooling on the skin.
With travelling, one of the things that I love is shopping at different airports - who doesn't!?
A few years ago, you could really find some gems - whether it was great deals and bundle kits or brands that you couldn't find elsewhere however now - the prices are sky-high yet the beauty-lover inside can't resist a few purchases!
On my latest trip, in Heathrow - I found this product from Lancôme. I'd never tried it before but heard great things about it due to it's 'Miceller' technology and added it to my basket - literally.
Lancôme Visage Micellar Water Review: Packaging
As you can see, the packaging is very simple however it's the little touches like the flower ( Lancôme logo) which is indented in the bottle and cap.
I also love how the blue oil which sits on top of the water is colour-ordinated to the 'Visage' writing on the bottle too.
Like I say, it's the little touches which make a big difference.
Lancôme Visage Micellar Water Review: Micellar Technology
The technology for the Lancôme Visage Micellar Water is a lot more advanced compared to other Micellar Waters which you find on the high-street.
As you can see in the images - the liquid is 'split' into two - the oil (blue liquid) sits on top of the water and when shaken, this activates the formulation.
Combining the ingredients together - removing your makeup (and waterproof mascara) to leave your skin feeling fresh and clean.
Lancôme Visage Micellar Water Review: How To Use For Your Skin Type
A lot of people seem to avoid using Micellar Waters however they can be really beneficial for your skin - when used correctly for your skin type.
Micellar water 'lifts' makeup away from your skin, leaving it feeling refreshed and clean.
Below, you can see the way I would recommend using the product according to your skin type.
Normal Skin: At the end of a long day, soak two cotton pads with the Lancôme Visage Micellar Water and wipe over your face - removing make-up and mascara. Go over with a third cotton pad and follow-up with a refreshing toner and moisturiser.
Combination Skin: Cleanse skin with an oil-free, balancing face wash / lotion and pat dry. Dampen two cotton pads with warm water and add a little bit of the Lancôme Visage Micellar Water. Wipe over face, eyes and neck to balance your skin and lastly, use your favourite moisturiser to nourish skin.
Sensitive Skin: Using 2-4 damp cotton pads (warm water), add a little bit of the Lancôme Visage Micellar Water along with a couple of drops of rose water or rose oil. This will remove all traces of make-up and soothe sensitive / irritated skin too whilst nourishing.
