It’s day 11 of my Joik advent calendar 2017* and today I got a Joik Micellar Water (50ml). This is worth £7.25 so a great item to receive!
This item was recommended to me a little while back when I was looking for a cleanser to remove mascara. It’s more expensive than some of the other micellar waters so I tried one of those first, though it stung my eyes. I was pleased to see this in the advent calendar to see if it did suit me better. I don’t wear make up every day but on days that I do it can be helpful to remove the bulk of my make up before going in with my evening cleanser. I’m not wearing make-up today so I put this one through a harsher test by putting swatches of some long-lasting products (lip liner, lipstick, eyeshadow, eye liner, mascara) on my hand and using the micellar water to remove it. It removed every last bit! It seems to work best when you hold the cotton pad against it and then wipe to allow it to soak in a bit more. I also tested it out on my eyes and it didn’t sting them either. Definitely impressed with this! The only downside really is the price – it’s an expensive product per ml compared to other micellar waters I think. You do only need a small amount and I won’t use it every day so it will probably last me a long while, but if you use micellar water every day this might be an expensive option. It’s a great product though so another thumbs up on this one 🙂
