Customer Reviews

Effaclar Purifying Micellar Water is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I'm 40 and have acne (mostly cysts) which i've had to recently resort to medication to fight. I decided my current skincare routine wasn't helping so thought i'd try something new and La Roche is what i stumbled on whilst doing to some novice research. Along with this and Effacla duo and their moisturiser, my skin has never looked so good. i've had 3 or 4 weeks now of no acne cysts...and barely a pimple....my confidence is returning and i'm sticking with La Roche!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use! I've been using the micellar water for two weeks now and I love it. It's really easy and quick to use, cleans my face really well, and it's the first cleanser that doesn't leave my skin either too dry or too greasy. My face feels so clean after I use it at night, and still fresh when I wake up in the morning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good. I bought this micellar water a few times now and I am very happy with it, and so is my skin! Also, it is cheap and easy to use. Does remove make up and cleans the skin, but in a gentle way. I can trust it, try it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nothing special This is just like any other micellar water.. very strong scented .. will use it up but it definitely didn't help my acne at all and cost a lot compared to other brands
