Most Helpful Positive Review was skeptical but love it!
tried numerous micellar water cleansers but was not thrilled with any of them. I actually bought this for someone else but got so curious I decided I had to try it. Needless to say they got a bottle but I kept this one! It worked Great! Removed everything from my face and actually left it feeling hydrated! Probably won't use it everyday, I have my Kopari coconut oil cleanser and my Kate summerville cleansers, but this is great for those nights (or mornings) when I'm feeling lazy and force myself to clean my face. I've actually found myself reaching for this cleanser more than my others lately! Never thought that would happen. So try it even if you've tried other micellar waters and felt let down. Highly recommend! And the price- wow!
Most Helpful Critical Review Stay away from this product
I use their facial cleanser and pm moisturizer. I tried this only because it was a freebie with the am moisturizer. 4 Days later my face is still swollen and red. I look as tho I aged 10 years. I have bags under my eyes. My vision was blurred my eyes were swollen almost shut. I was on vacation and could not go outside because the air would hurt my face HORRIBLE PRODUCT and should be removed from the shelves
Reviewed by 163 customers Gentle and smoothing
Annie from Boston
I don't wear make up much anymore (pandemic life, ugh) but I do use this every night to gentle cleanse my skin of my daily spf. I LOVE it. So gentle, and I've noticed that my 46 year old, reddish skin is starting to smooth out (I'm also using the CereVe Retinol serum afterwards.) So it's probably both products, but I really love it. I have not experienced any stinging, itching or anything around my eyes. It's very gentle.
It doesn't sting!
Victoria from Ohio
I had tried CeraVe micellar water a few years ago. It stung my eyes and I couldn't use it. Since this said it was a new formula, I thought I would give it another chance. So glad I did! It didn't bother my eyes at all and took my eye makeup off easily.
M Langrehr from Illinois
I use this product every night to remove makeup before washing my face. It's magic, all of my makeup just wipes away with zero scrubbing. I've used other micellar waters before, but they're always too drying and require too much scrubbing. This is affordable, effective, and gentle.
Great! One complaint
Ella from VA
I would say this is a great source to remove makeup. I really enjoy that it does the job with out having to "double cleanse." I would give 5/5 or maybe a 4.5/5 just because of one complaint that happened to me personally. I had to wear different makeup twice in a day, and used the water to remove it, since I HATE using makeup wipes (because they irritate my face and are TERRIBLE for the environment). It left my skin with a bit of dryiness around my eyes, but other than that totally recommend!
Britt from Kansas City, MO
I use this as the first step in my morning skincare routine. It takes off any residual oil/products still sitting on my skin from my nighttime regimen from the night before. Leaves my skin feeling refreshed and ready for serums, moisturizer and SPF. I have used it for removing makeup as well and enjoy it that way too! Just not wearing as much makeup these days and now prefer a cleansing oil as my first cleansing step at night!
One of my staple products
Kate from New Jersey
I love this product and use it regularly for either removing makeup or just cleaning my face at the end of a work day or busy day hours before washing my face at night. It removes dirt and oil and makes my face feel refreshed and clean until I wash it, and when removing makeup, it removes even stubborn mascara by just holding the soaked cotton pad onto the eye for a few seconds. I no longer use makeup remover. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't bother me at all. It's gentle, has no fragrance, and I love its no rinse formula.
Best Stuff Ever
Momma R from AL
Stumbled upon this @my local drug store, now they no longer have it. I have been searching everywhere for it. This is the only stuff I will use and have been for the past 2 years. I have very sensitive skin,and this is the only product that doesn't burn or irritate my face and I feel my skin is really clean, not tight or dried out feeling, also it is developed with dermatologist & has good for your skin ingredients. Please continue to make this available Ulta.
Buy only depending on your skin type
Tammy from Jersey
Great brand product but does leave my face dry and I have sensitive skin so that part doesn't help me. It's easy to apply!!
I love this stuff
Lisalady from Metro Detroit area
This is part of my nightly 'triple cleansing' routine. After removing makeup with oil and washing, I use the micellar water to remove any remaining traces of foundation from my face and throat (I blend down my neck). It's effective without drying, which is perfect for my post-menopausal skin.
Wrecked my skin.
Skeansie from US
Ughhhh. Didn't burn as other reviews have stated, but after three days of using my skin is a MESS. My underyes are so puffy and swollen and my entire face is covered with little tiny pimples. My skin is dry but not sensitive, and it's unusual I break out from any product. Hate this stuff.
New favorite skin routine and brand
Whitney from Dayton, OH
Just switched to CeraVe when the pandemic started due to breakouts from wearing a mask constantly (I am a critical care nurse). I noticed my skin is softer, less redness, no more red bumps, smaller pores. I use this with the daily cleanser and the facial moisturizer. Highly recommend!!!!
I love this product!
Emily from FL
I've been using this to clean my makeup/face and i have never had a more clearer face! Yay to no more adult acne. Can't live without this product!
I apply this daily and it feels amazing on my skin!
Emily from Florida
I apply this every morning and then put my make up on.
H from NY
This made my eyes & face burn
Hunterbloom from Texas
Ingredients list is bomb on this product! Compared to other brands I've used that don't have a good ingredient list. I used gently near the eye area and had no burning sensation. I do have sensitive eye area too, but no issues. I use I after I cleanse my skin with a cotton pad. I do NOT use a make up remover. Only use balms to take off make up. I have combo/oily skin and tends to be sensitive, but no brake outs due to this product.
New Formula is Amazing
Kellie from CA
I am not sure why people dislike the new formula. I think it is WAY better! The old formula stung my eyes and the new one is very gentle and nonirritating. I have gone through many bottles.
Life saver for sensitive+rosacea-prone skin
Layla from CT, USA
I use this as a toner after I cleanse my face and as a nightly cleanser when my skin is feeling especially sensitive. The drying sensation I get on my face after a shower is completely gone once I put this on, and I can add serums, sunscreens, and moisturizers with no problems as long as I put this on first. It helps prevent pimples and hydrates my skin for the rest of the day. Even expensive micellar waters, essences, and toners haven't been able to compare to this for my skin. I hope they never stop making this
Kat from Punta Gorda,FL
Best product ever!
I love this stuff!
Sunnyhf from West Virginia
I have used this for years. I try other products but come back every time. I use this as a toner. I put in a fine mist spritz bottle and it is so easy to use.
Love the old formula...
KariH from Chicago
Please please bring back the old formula. I noticed the difference right away. The new formula has a much stronger smell, it's sort of drying, and actually foams up when applying. I'll use until I find a better product, but will switch once I do.
New formula sucks
Mamallama from Texas
I loved the old formula. This new one bubbles and foams a lot in the pads I use to clean my face. When removing eye makeup, it burns. I have to use a lot to remove my makeup where as the old one I didn't have to use that much. I just switched to the granite all-in-1 and so far I like it a LOT better.
Honest review 👍🏽
SophiaEva from New York
So I don't use this as a make-up remover Per se, I do use it as a first cleanser. I pat it on my face and let it sit for about a minute and then rinse it off. Then I use my cleanser I do like to wash my face twice and I think this works really well as that first cleanser to break up dirt/makeup etc. it does have a great hydrating feeling I've never left it on my face without rinsing it off due to the fact that I already have my routine with moisturizers and serums As for makeup remover I use grape seed oil to remove eye makeup and I wish other people would try that cause it's way better then coconut oil. Hope this helps
Harmony from Atlanta, GA
Love using this as a toner after the hydration cleanser. Sometimes I layer this multiple times if I feel I need a little extra pamper or prep before moisturising. Also feel like it makes such a big difference with the size of my pores. They are so much smaller after I apply this.
Have not experienced what others are mentioning about it burning their eyes. I don't saturate the area around my eyes but dab it below the eye area without getting it near my eyelashes or the corner where it can easily seep into the eye. Can't believe it is out of stock everywhere I've looked!
Love this stuff
Stef from Az
I use a lot of acne fighting products, so my face is always dry. This stuff is sticky if used by itself, but if you put a moisturizer on right after... it's perfect. My skin feels soft and moisturized all day.
I buy this over and over!
Gwennyco from Wooster, OH
I use this product day and night with a cotton pad and love how my skin still feels moist, even before I apply moisturizer. The old formula removed eye makeup better, but the new formula DOES NOT BURN the eyes!.
