I’m a soap and water girl. Always have been. In my younger days, I would wash my face in the shower in the morning, and wash my makeup off at the end of the day, and slap a bit of cheap moisturiser on. That was pretty much my entire skin care regime.
But the years have not been kind to my skin, and my regime has had to change considerably with time. My skin is old and feels tired and dull. It feels permanently clogged, and terribly tight and sensitive with dry, rough patches (not to mention the dreaded “laughter lines” – I refuse to accept that they are wrinkles!) And as a result, I now have an eye makeup remover, then soap and water and then exfoliate and then a gentle cream cleanser, then tone, then an anti-aging serum, then a moisturiser with sunscreen for the day, and a heavy nightcream for the night! (phew!)
I was given a free sample of ActiLab’s Micellar lotion, and never really bothered with it. I didn’t see how it could possibly be better than my bathroom shelf full of products that I already used. I don’t often admit that I am wrong, but in this case I have to say that I was!
The boring scientific bit
Micelles are attracted to dirt, grime and oil, and they draw out impurities without drying out your skin. Rather than a foamy solution that strips your skin and leaves behind harsh chemicals, micelles cling onto the dirt and makeup on your skin and dissolve them away. It requires no rinsing and is suitable for all skin types, especially dry, sensitive and acne prone skin. It also contains no alcohol so it never stings and is therefore suitable for use around the eye area.
The first time I tried Micellar Lotion, I went through my usual morning routine – shower, hair washed, then exfoliate and soap on face. Instead of using my normal cleanser, I soaked a cotton wool pad with the Micellar Lotion, and was gobsmacked to see this.
All that was left AFTER soap and water and exfoliate! In the evening I tried it instead of my eye makeup remover – it was amazing! Instead of smearing mascara and eyeliner all over my face like the normal cleanser did, it just came straight off! And afterwards my skin felt lovely and smooth, had no tightness, and looked really bright!
I have now changed my routine considerably. Instead of eye make up remover, soap and water, exfoliate and cream cleanser, I just wash my face in the shower and follow with my Micellar Lotion! A quick spritz of the Energising Vitality Lotion, and then followed with my Ultraderm day cream or Collagen night cream. It’s saved me time, it’s saved my skin, and more than anything else, at only £11.50 for a big bottle, it’s saved me a FORTUNE in costly lotions and potions!
I’m having a week in the sun next week, and my toilet bag has reduced dramatically in size! Instead of 5 bottles and 2 creams, I just need 1 bottle and 2 creams, and then thats me done!!!!
