Another makeup related review but this time it’s remover. Evoluderm is actually a French brand
This was another item I found while browsing through TK Maxx. Seriously never know what you can find there and I can’t find this particular Micellar water to buy online anywhere. There are 3 to choose from overall; one for combination oily skin, one for dry and sensitive skin and one for reactive red-prone skin. All are available in 3 sizes; 100ml, 250ml and 500ml. Naturally I grabbed the 500ml combination skin one which retails for £8.
The packaging is nothing special but for the price, I wouldn’t expect it to be. However, I do expect the cap to be sturdier than what it is; mine has actually snapped off which isn’t comforting if you plan on travelling with it. All product information is contained on the bottle including ingredients and direction of use in French and English.
This is an alcohol free, dermatologically tested formula created for combination and oily skin tones. It contains Pink Grapefruit extract which is rich in vitamin C for cleansing and controlling sebum (oil) production. It is also free from parabens although it does contain perfume which is a little odd for clean skincare. Directions of use state to use this with a cotton pad and swipe over the skin to remove impurities. It should leave you with refreshed clean skin without the need to rinse.
So, I’m not the biggest fan of the scent. I think it’s Grapefruit because I can’t smell a perfume so I assume they’ve added a grapefruit scent to the formula. But it lingers on the skin for quite a while after use. If you like grapefruit you’ll probably be fine with this but I really struggle with it and never use it to remove my makeup for this reason. Such a shame because it’s good at it’s job and will remove most makeup fairly easily although it doesn’t help much with getting rid of makeup stains. I tend to use this to produce eyeshadow looks. It’s great for removing excess eyeshadow for cut crease looks using either a flat brush or a cotton swab.
My only other issue with this is I’ve found it leaves a tacky residue on the skin after use. Again why I don’t really use it to remove a full face of makeup. I don’t like residue from skincare. I’ve not had issues such as stinging eyes or break outs when I’ve used it.
Overall, not the best for me personally but it’s not a bad product. It removes the majority of makeup pretty easily to be honest but it doesn’t reduce any staining on the skin. I love it for creating a clean cut crease as it’s eye safe and easy to control with a brush or cotton bud. The downside for me is the scent and residue left behind. The smell lingers for a while a use and it leaves you with a tacky feel to the skin.
