Review: Etat Pur Micellar Cleansing Water

Etat Pur are a French 'Biomimetic' skincare brand which recently launched in the UK and is gentle enough for the most sensitive skins. Etat Pur aim to bring customers the best in skincare for a reasonable price and they are totally honest about their pricing and where your money goes which is quite refreshing for a beauty brand. 

The cleansing water promises to cleanse and removes make-up from the face and eyes in one wipe, respects the skin's natural balance and does not contain soap.

I have long been looking for a good alternative to my beloved Bioderma which is hard to get hold of in the UK, unless you want to pay ridiculous postage costs to ship from France! The packaging is very simple which I like and the bottle is a good size for travel, unlike my bulky Bioderma which I have to decant when travelling. 

I dispense a small amount of the water onto a cotton wool pad, but be careful, too much tends to spurt out! It is just like water really, no scent, not oily at all, but doesn't strip the skin of moisture but does the job of removing make up. I love using this to remove eye makeup and if I'm feeling lazy I'll just use this instead of a rinse-off cleanser. This water is suitable for sensitive skin and it hasn't irritated my skin at all, I think this product is really good value.    

Although I prefer Bioderma, this is a great alternative that is easily accessible in the UK. I would say if you are in the UK and looking to purchase a micellar water then go for Etat Pur over Bioderma to save on the shipping costs, but if your lucky enough to be in France then stock up on Bioderma... and bring me back one please ;)

Etat Pur Micellar Cleansing Water is priced at £6.40 for 190ml and is available from Have you tried any Etat Pur products before? Let me know if there are any other star products I should try!


  1. i have never used a "water" makeup remover before and am dumbfounded to read that thats zero oiliness? wow. i wonder how it works.

  2. This does nothing for me, maybe I wear too much makeup for it to remove, but it barely budges my eye makeup atall and if I use it on my face it leaves my skin red and irritated.
