Oh no no no, La Roche Posay, just no! I’ll start this review post with a disclaimer… I LOVE La Roche Posay, I am a big big fan of theirs. I have been rotating a Hydraphase moisturiser and a Rosaliac moisturiser for about six years and love them both.
I’ve been trying to calm my skin down recently after hearing I was developing Rosacea (experience the panic here). I spotted this Rosaliac Micellar Make Up Removal Gel and thought the Rosaliac moisturiser really helps my skin so this might do the trick as well. I was also intrigued by the word Micellar because of all the talk of Micellar waters. So I forked out €16 for it.
It’s a clear gel consistency in a handy pump bottle. The instructions say to spread it over your face and wipe off with cotton wool. It says no need to wash it off. Well… I felt like I had to use a tonne of this stuff to get my make up off and that’s just my light daily make up. I had to use 3 or 4 pumps to remove everything. And although it says not to wash it off you can feel it leaves a film of the product on your face. I just have to wash my face after I can’t leave it.
It didn’t irritate my face but I didn’t notice any major calming effects either. It just seems to me to be a big waste of product for less than stellar results, I’ve only used it a handful of times and it’s almost gone! I’m sorry La Roche Posay I’d never buy this again but I still love you! Has anybody used this, what do you think of it?
