B. Pure Micellar Water & B Pure Sensitive Micellar Cleansing Wipes Review

 B Pure Micellar Water is part of Superdrug's B premium range and is cruelty free and vegan. Micellar water contains micelles, tiny round balls of cleansing molecules that float in the water. They lift dirt, make up and oil from the skin but with no need to rinse away, which is why they're so popular.  The B Pure Micellar Water is marketed as a 'Quick and easy 3 in 1 cleanser / super water 'that cleanses in just one swipe .' It claims to 'cleanse, by removing impurities and makeup, tone by restoring the ph. balance and keep the skin supple and refresh the skin with cucumber juice extract.' You can smell the cucumber but it's a pretty inoffensive smell and quite refreshing.

The directions say to use this morning and night. I had to use at least two fully soaked (ie drowned) cotton pads sometimes three, so I wouldn't say this removes dirt and makeup in one swipe as it claims to. After a few days I found this left a tacky residue on my skin which was contributing to a couple of spots on my face in random places where I never get any, such as by my ear and neck. So I went out and bought a bottle of Simple toner to use afterwards. However while the micellar water appeared to be getting all the makeup off  (the second or third pad would be clean) when I used the toner even more foundation came off. Despite this you'll be pleased to know this does remove waterproof mascara and the smell didn't make my eyes water like Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish does. Be careful not to get it in your eyes though, because it does sting. Since the bottle was tall and transparent I could see the micellar water disappearing at a fast rate. While I liked that the B Pure Micellar Water didn't have a strong smell, I wasn't impressed with how well it cleaned my face, especially when I was wearing a full face of makeup. I needed to use a lot of product as well. I would give this a 2 out of 5 and I don't think I will be repurchasing this.

Onto the B. Pure Sensitive Micellar Face Wipes which were much better. They are very wet and moist especially compared to Nivea's. I also like that the pack has a plastic lid on top of the seal because it keeps the wipes wet and fresh. Although the packaging looks very similar to their B quick 4 in 1 Cleansing wipes they are not the same and are different prices. These are targeted to those with sensitive skin and they are hypoallergic and dermatology approved. It's also free of fragrance, colour as well as being alcohol free. The packaging has the leaping bunny logo meaning that the product is cruelty free and hasn't been tested on animals.

It takes around one and a half wipes to remove a face full of makeup (liquid foundation, blush, contour, powder) and one or two for the eyes. It is really gentle on the eyes, doesn't sting and removes waterproof mascara. I've also been on the lookout for face wipes that don't contain MI or MCI preservatives that can cause contact dermatis and these B Pure Micellar Cleansing wipes don't have these ingredients. These are wonderful, effective at removing makeup and excellent value for money with 25 wipes for only a pound! What a bargain! Definitely 5/5.
