Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever! I thought that the Biore Micellar Water worked so well! It smells great and really works to take off my makeup. It isnt oily and doesnt leave my face feeling sticky after. This is my new favorite makeup remover product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good alternative The Bioré Micellar Water was a really nice alternative to my make-up remover wipes. I only apply a small amount of make-up so using this with a cotton ball felt more refreshing than the wipes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worthwhile Cleanser and Makeup Remover I received a free sample of the Bioré Micellar Water via PINCHme, but that did not influence my experience or opinions about this product in any way. I loved how distinctive this cleanser looked in the bottle without leaving any color residue on my face after using. The smell was nice, lightly floral and not overly chemical smelling. After using, my face felt soft and clean without any itchiness. I did not experience any dramatic reductions in breakouts while using but it did effectively remove my eye makeup, which is a very difficult task sometimes. I would buy this again, but it wasn't the most revolutionary cleanser that I've ever tried.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great on sensitive, oily, acne prone skin! Biore's Micellar Water actually exceeded my expectations. It wasn't too harsh like most charcoal products are on my sensitive skin. It didn't leave me feeling extra dry, it didn't break me out and it really got off my makeup. However, it says for eye makeup to leave the pad on your eye for a few moments then just wipe, this did not really work for water proof makeup. It doesn't claim anything regarding water proof mascara but it requires some rubbing, which is fine. I don't normally have cotton pads around so I don't think I really need to purchase this product. However, if I ever feel the need to have a micellar water I would purchase this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hello Clean Face Thanks to this free samples from Pinchme I was able to try Biore Micellar Water for the first time. I was not very excited at first because I had read reviews from other mincellar water brands, saying that leave your face oily and not so clean. Trying Biore Micellar Water made me wonder why I had never tried this before! It left my face so clean and no oily residue. It really helps take ALL you make up off and this really comes in handy when you are just ready for bed but need to quickly take your make up off. This micellar water is amazing and I am definitely recommending this to family and friends. Thank you Biore for this clean face!!
