Shake Me Baby...A Micellar Water With A Difference

Monday, 19 May 2014

Hi Ladies! I hope your all having a fabulous week. Today I'm going to be talking about yet another micellar water, however this one is quite unique. If you don't know what a micellar water is...where have you been?! Micellar waters took the beauty world by storm a while ago and since the creation of the legendary Bioderma Micellar Water, tonnes of brands have been adding their own additions to the market. A Micellar Water is essentially a make up remover which also tones your skin. They are supposed to take off your make up with couple of swipes of a cotton pad and they're great for sensitive skin too. 

Recently I was contacted by Pulpe De Vie, a french skincare brand, asking if I would like to try out their Micellar Water called Shake Me Baby* and after researching the product a bit more, I just couldn't say no. I've recently come to love micellar waters for taking my make up off after trying the Garnier one (I wasn't keen on the L'Oreal one) and this one looked perfect for my dehydrated skin. 

Shake Me Baby is made from 20% fresh tomato and grapefruit waters, sea water for its trace elements and cornflower water to tone your skin. However, it also contains olive oil to help deeply cleanse and moisturise your skin. Essentially, Shake Me Baby is a mix between a micellar water and an oil cleanser, however this doesn't have to be removed with water like a regular oil cleanser would. 

I've been using this product for around 2 weeks now and I have to say, I love it. It's amazing at removing my make up, especially waterproof mascara and two cotton pads with this stuff on tends to remove my full face of make up - which is pretty impressive considering I wear quite heavy duty foundation. It also leaves my skin feeling fresh but without drying my skin out, in fact it pretty much does the opposite and leaves my skin feeling like I've just moisturised. The bottle says that you don't need to cleanse your face after using this, but I always like to wash my face with warm water anyway just to be sure, but if you were at a festival, this would make an amazing alternative to face wipes when your water supply is limited. 

Overall, I love this product and I would really recommend it to anyone out there who has dry or dehydrated skin as it leaves your skin feeling so soft. 

Lots of Love,

  10. Oh this sounds really interesting! I like the sound of the grapefruit but tomato does sound a little strange for a micellar water :)
