Review: Etat Pur Micellar Water

A few weeks ago I fully caved in and bought a few goodies from Etat Pur as I was so fed up with my skin care routine.

I’d heard a lot about them and so was excited to browse their website, take their 1 minute application to see what they prescribed for my skin and finally place an order!

I ended up purchasing the much raved about Micellar water, and also 2 actives in the form of A20 (Zinc Gluconate) and A01 (Q10).

As well as the 3 products I purchased, when you place your first order you get free delivery and 3 free samples, 2 of which you get to choose yourself!

This intrigued me, and I’m always a sucker for freebies!

All of my goodies are shown below:

So starting with the Micellar solution…

I had previously tried a micellar water from Joliebox (The Taaj one) which was ok, smelt like flowers and took off quite a bit of make up even after cleansing with Liz Earle.

Whilst it wasn’t a revolutionary product in terms of what it did (nor did I like the smell much!), it did make me realise that maybe I needed something like a micellar water as an extra step for make up removal, particularly mascara, though I personally wanted a brand that had a website I could read more about!

The Etat Pur Micellar water was infinitely better when compared to the Taaj micellar water.

My make up came off so easily, particularly my eye make up which is a big bonus as my eyes have been sensitive for MONTHS now, I’m really having trouble with them!

I’m hoping that with long term use it will improve my skin texture too, as cleaning it better can only improve it!

I was quite impressed with this product, and the smell wasn’t too strong nor did it the break the bank at a measly £6.40, I have definitely been won over!

I’m still trialling the actives out at the moment, but at the first few uses I’m definitely impressed and my skin has definitely improved.

My mum is considering putting in an order…I’m hoping I can add a few more things and steal her samples…would that be mean?!

They’re so cute and perfect for travelling with…hopefully I can bribe her 😉

I was a little disappointed that my order took so long, it was supposed to take 4 days to arrive, but mine took more like 10 days which was a considerably longer time.

It was worth the wait, but obviously it was very frustrating.

Have you bought anything from Etat Pur? Have you used a Micellar water before?

I think I’m going to look for something to help my dark shadows and pores next…hopefully I can find something for every bit of my face that needs a little helping hand 😉

Hope you enjoyed the post, I love writing about new products like this!

    I like the word "impressed." The prices look nice too.

      The prices are definitely what drew me to them in the first place, and the fact you can tailor it and buy different products for each separate problem and part of your face, completely tailored skincare at from £6 per product? Can't beat it! 🙂
