Another Take It Off Solution: La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution

Last year I swooned over my French makeup remover find — Bioderma Crealine H2O Miscellar Solution — that I stockpiled in my suitcase before I left Europe. Well...just as my stash was running low, I received a sample of La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution. It's another French miscellar water, but this one is more readily available here in the U.S.

La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution is a gentle water-based product that is ideal for removing makeup without upsetting your skin's natural moisture levels. It is formulated with poloxamer, a gentle cleansing agent often used in contact lens solutions, and thermal spring water, which calms the skin and protects against free radicals. According to the company, this product is ideal for all skin types, but especially sensitive and redness-prone skin. I love it because the product is not greasy so it won't irritate my contacts or delicate under-eye area.

I've been using it primarily to spot remove any eye makeup residue (liner, mascara, etc.) after I've cleansed my face. While I do a good job of facial cleansing, there's always a good chance that I've left something behind that needs to be removed before I go to bed. Likewise, it's also a good choice for cleaning up any makeup boo-boos along the way. No rinsing required!

For best results, decant the product into a Sephora flip-top container so you don't waste a precious drop.

Purchase info: La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution is available at select Walgreens, as well as such online retailers as Drugstore.com, SkinStore.com, and more. Prices vary, but you can usually find the 6.7 oz bottle for $20.00.
