I’m a huge, huge, huge fan of Filorga!
I love all their products, and am really impressed with their latest offering, the Filorga Micellar Solution Cleanser & Makeup Remover.
To start with, it comes in a supersize bottle of 400ml, and I love that you don’t have to rinse your skin after you’ve cleansed it, as it’s completely soap free.
If you’ve got sensitive skin, you’ll know that harsh cleansers can do more harm than good, so I’m really glad that Filorga now has the answer in their Micellar Solution Cleanser.
So what is it exactly?
Well, it’s a cleansing lotion that contains three main components;
- Micelles to provide a physiological cleaning action
- Rhamnose which is a polysaccharide that provides anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory and soothing actions
- Terhalose which is an active ingredient that helps with hydration and maximum skin comfort while cleansing.
Together these components work at effectively at removing makeup and cleaning skin in one single step.
Since it’s soap free, you’re probably wondering how it works to cleanse the skin? Just think of the Micelles as a cluster of molecules that act like a magnet to attract dirt, oil and sweat from the skin.
What’s better about Micellar Water type cleansers than soap? Well soaps generally strip the skin to remove impurities, and with that they strip the natural hydration of the skin leaving it dry and irritated.
I am anti soap cleansers, and my choice is always a foam, cream or gel cleanser instead. After using this Micellar system for about a week or two, I’d have to add this type of system to my list of favourite cleansers.
While I did find it a little challenging to remove heavy makeup, on days where I just did a simple face, it removed my makeup quickly and easily.
To use, you just drench a cotton wool disk in Micellar Solution, apply to your face and wipe away until the cotton wool comes away clean.
I love using this cleanser in the morning, since I don’t have any makeup on (obvs, as I’ve just woken up!) It’s a great way to freshen up your skin and remove any sweat and sebum that may have built up overnight.
Love, love, love that fact that I don’t have to rinse my face afterwards and can go straight ahead with sunscreen and moisturizer!
Filorga’s Micellar Solution hits selected Edgars and Red Square stores this September, and retails for R360 for a mega-offering, 400ml bottle!
