Vichy Normaderm Micellar solution review


When my skin crisis began I decided to invest in products a little more expensive than I would regularly buy to prevent more damage. That’s how I found Vichy’s micellar solution, a paraben-free makeup remover specially formulated for sensitive and acne prone skins that contains thermal water and promises 3 effects in 1: cleanse, remove makeup eye and sooth skin.

It does give a soothing effect without leaving any greasiness behind and feels fresh so I like to use it as a morning cleanser. It also contains zinc which helps to control oiliness and the best part is that there’s no alcohol in it; this is great considering how harmful alcohol can be for the skin.

Averall I think it’s a good product for sensitive skins but it’s just not my favorite. Here’s why:

  • If you use waterproof mascara you’ll need a lot of patience

And you might not remove it completely... I think for non waterproof mascaras it won’t be such a problem but keep in mind that a creaamy or oily product is always best to remove eye makeup. 

  • It has a citric smell but nothing special

I haven’t noticed how much attention I pay to this but I really think that nice smells can make our routines more pleasent, especially tedious ones like removing our makeup.

  • It doesn’t have that slightly oily texture that caracterizes micellar waters -and I personally like- but this can be a plus for those who prefer lightweight cleansers.
