My skin is kinda freaking out lately! I’m pretty dry but also a little sensitive in the fact that the less I use on the better because everything seems to dry it out further. Typically micellar water isn’t my pick for removing makeup as I’m one of those people that never feels truly clean after cleansing like this. But with my skin the way it is micellar water is actually a good pick for cleansing as it doesn’t strip or dry me out further.
I kinda sorta like the idea of pre-soaked micellar pads. I dunno why…maybe because they’d travel so easily? Maybe because I just like the idea of not having an endless supply of facial cotton hanging around to use my micellar water as hey, these already come in a pad! Who knows but I do so like the ideas of these.
Here’s my thoughts!
Ulta Micellar Water Cleansing Pads come in a big old tub that holds 30 pads which will either set you back $8 (or use coupon code 409797 and get $3.50 off your order of $10 or more bucks!) or you can buy any 2 Ulta Beauty products and get 2 free!
Now, you’re either going to like these a lot of you’re going to be freaked out they come in a big old tube as each time you open it well, bacteria! Running away, arms flaying! You’ll likely use them all up before anything nasty happens but hey, if you’re a germ-o-phobe I totally get it.
These are saturated well with product because there is nothing worst than getting eye makeup remover or makeup remover pads that are dry as century old bones. Each of these pads is soaked nicely so I can use one pad for my entire face and another for my eyes. They have absolutely no fragrance and they remove my facial makeup super fast and super easily. Unfortunately they struggle a little with waterproof mascara and eye makeup. I’d say I was able to get 90% of my eye makeup off but I still had a bit of mascara left and did have to tug a little bit during removal! But most Micellar Waters are the same as they tend to hiccup with really harder to remove eyeshadow and mascara.
All in all Ulta Micellar Water Cleansing Pads are a nice, gentle way to remove your makeup without stripping skin. I didn’t feel like this formula dried my skin out nor made it tight! I also liked how I could easily travel with these versus bringing a big old bottle of water with me.
