I have super sensitive eyes and I can clean off mascara with one swipe, and skin feels fresh, airy and like a big breath of fresh air. You NEED to try this!!! I bought this as a combo coupon because I was running low on purity cleanser. (not a paid review). I will be buying this for my sisters to try. this stuff is great!
I use waterproof mascara, but didn't need this cleanser to do much. I recently discovered too faced mascara melt off. It does a great job of penetrating my mascara and breaking it up. I coat my eyelashes with it, let it sit while I brush my teeth, then soak and cotton pad with some sort of makeup remover and wipe it all away. I've used Avon's makeup removing lotion and Paula's Choice MU remover and both adequately finished the job. I purchased this cleaner for that purpose. Since I started the routine I haven't lost any lashes or experienced eye irritation. When I used this product it didn't feel smooth at all, I felt a lot of friction when I rubbed my makeup away. I noticed three lashes in my cotton round (from one eye) and the skin around my eyes felt very irritated, the way they do when I've cried. Overall it worked, but I hated how irritated my eyes felt afterward. I'm certain that if I hadn't used my mascara melt off my eyes would have been much more irritated. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone for any purpose.

I have been using this a lot more lately as the busier I get I really don't feel like washing my face with a few products at the end of the day. I wet my face first, shake some of the water onto my hands and apply to my face. Then watch the makeup melt off! I do rinse my face after and apply a toner.

I love this cleanser. It works well removing my sunscreen and grime from the day without being harsh. I use day and night.

Love this for cleaning up makeup mistakes in the morning without messing up your entire face of makeup.

I use this every day. It's perfect with a cotton pad.

This is a product that I want to love. I love how light and refreshing it feels on my skin. I hate that I have to use a couple of cotton pads to remove all foundation. definitely recommend washing face with cleanser then going over with this.

My teenager uses this daily to clean her face and her face feels clean and it doesn't break her out. She loves it!

I love this product because it makes taking off my makeup super easy and stress free. For the longest time I couldn't find a make up remover that didn't sting or irritate my face until I came across this cleansing water. I would definitely recommend to others and as I've bought this multiple times already I will absolutely be back to buy again.

It's a hydrating micellar water, which is a plus, but it burned my eyes. That's not supposed to happen. ESPECIALLY with a high end product. I've had better luck with drugstore micellar waters!
Chessie from Florida
So I got this as a sample and had been sitting on it - unsure of its worth. I regret I didn't give it a chance sooner! I use this as a daily or nightly cleanser in rotation with a more rigorous skin care system. It has given me (and my skin) a balance I didn't realize was missing.
I do not use it to take make-up off, I simply use it to cleanse my skin before applying my serum and moisturizer. It gives me an alternative way to clean and tone my skin in one step as well as helps lessen the exposure my skin gets to being rubbed, pushed and pulled naturally while going through a skin care system ritual.

I get home from work as the suns coming up, and the last thing I want to do is wash, scrub and rinse my face. Micellar Cleanser is quick and easy to use. I can also see the day, or night rather, wiping away immediately. I can rest easy knowing my face is clean and it only took two minutes away from my sleep!

This melts away my makeup and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and hydrated. It's a must-have for those of us too lazy to wash our faces at night.
PamXT from PA
My typical evening routine is to use a cleansing balm on my face and micellar water for that stubborn waterproof eye makeup. Boy do I wish I would've read the ingredients.
My eyes were BURNING. Turns out isopropyl alcohol and eyeballs don't mix (who knew)? In Philosophy's defense, the bottle does say "avoid direct contact with eyes".
I tried giving it a shot on my face makeup, but I just can't get past the alcohol in it. My skin is Normal-Oily right now but this leaves that skin tight, stripped, and un-nourished feeling.
Does it do an okay job? Sure..
Have I tried better? Yep, and more cost effective.
Will I try it again in the summer when my skin gets super oily? Probably not.
If you have dry or normal skin, definitely AVOID.
If you have oily skin, proceed at your own risk.

H2O on steroids, after cleaning face w/Purity made simple I then used a small amount of Micellar Water on a cotton ball, and there were dirty spots. After cleaning again, I was ready for my day.
Kitkat77 from Atlanta, Georgia
I like this product for cleansing my dry skin in winter in lieu of using my usual Purity cleanser. I didn't give it a higher rating because I felt like the instructions could have been clearer - I first ordered/used this like a toner after cleansing. Only after doing my own research on micellar waters did I realize this could be used as a standalone no-rinse cleanser.
Dkelly8985 from Brick, NJ
I use this gentle cleanser after washing with Purity Made Simple. This cleanser removes all traces of makeup and leaves my hyper-sensitive skin soft and clean. It does not irritate my rosacea nor does it make my skin red.
mcgeechs50 from Pennsylvania
The Philosophy micellar water is a good product. It cleans the skin and does not burn like other toner facial products. I like to use it at night to remove make up.

love this product
SaltyMom77 from Ca
For the price & size this is thee best MW I've tried thus far. I have an norm/oily skin type (oily tzone). 41yrs young. I only use this to remove eye makeup & it works great. For all over makeup removal I recommend an oil cleanser such as Boscia or the Take The Day Off Balm from Clinique.
ClassyGrandma from Appleton, WI
Philosophy, you have an uncanny sense of making the products that really work!!! I just received a large sample size of this micellar cleansing water. As a frequent traveler, this product is a perfect addition to the purity collection. I cleanse with purity every morning and night. My over-60 skin is so happy!! Thank you, Philosophy.

One of the best liquid make up removers I used! Takes off all my eye makeup in 2 easy swipes, and you don't have to use alot. It's also not greasy which I love. Would highly recommend. This is my first time trying to and that's why I purchased the travel size, but getting the regular when I'm out.
JessLynnSalk from Dallas, TX
I picked up a couple bottles when Ulta had it on sale. It's super easy to use by apply it to a cotton ball to take off makeup when you are wanting to be lazy, however I have to use 3-4 cotton balls and still end up seeing more makeup when I use my Clinique toner. My face gets pretty red after using, but it never burns. I like the stuff and do think it works to take off makeup, however if you use full coverage foundation you may want to look for another makeup remover. The price is a little much for the small quantity but it does last since I don't use it daily.
Chlo from New Jersey
I love the price of this, and I love philosophy and how this takes off my makeup, but now my skin feels really tight and I know that's not a good thing. I feel like I have to immediately moisturize after use
