Taaj Eau Micelleaire Review

Taaj Eau Micelleaire

Personally I am more of a gel or balm cleanser kinda gal but in the recent warm weather as a pre-cleanse I have been indulging a little in the micelleaire pool of cleansing waters. It is quick and easy, gives instant refreshment and removes most of my make-up so I can relax before getting down to a full cleanse. It is easy to see why so many are a fan of this method.

At the moment I have been using Taaj Eau Micelleaire which may just get the prize for best scented cleansing water ever - it reminds me a little of Mojito's fruity yet minty at the same time and although fragranced it is gentle on the skin and has not sparked any kind of reaction what so ever. Two cotton pads soaked in this clear liquid instantly dissolves the majority of my make-up without drying out my skin - I can't comment on how well it removes eye make-up as I haven't tried it for such purpose and probably won't ever. All I know is that my skin feels heavenly after using it - soft, cleansed without the tight sensation that so many other cleansers are prone to. 

Sadly like so many other great on the surface products this is not without its faults!
Firstly at £22 a bottle it is not cheap and even worse within the UK it is not easy to source - to the best of my knowledge Amazon is your only hope. I personally feel that although pricey that had this product been easier to get a hold of it would do so much better within the UK market as we are all a little weak in the knees for French skincare brands.

  1. I love this stuff! I think I got a sample of it once in a beauty box and I never got round to getting the full size! This has reminded me though :) xx

  2. I got this too off amazon!

    After a review off Zoe on youtube, have to say I've switched like you to using gel or balm cleansers since I bought it but I may have to dig it out again! xx

  3. Ahh I want to try this so badly, even though it's on the pricey side. I like the sound of soft and deeply cleansed skin with no tightness! :)

  4. Need to try this badly, I'm getting to the end of my huge bottle of Bioderma, do I re-buy it or try something new? Ah beauty decisions...! Great Post

  5. This sounds so lovely.... I'm not so keen on the price though for a bottle of micellar water! xx

  6. Thanks for the recommendation! Do you know where this product is originally from? I live in London but have family abroad so I want to see if there's anyone I can ask :) thanks!

  7. I have used this Taaj water, too. I enjoyed it at first but later found that it irritated my eyes a bit but nevertheless I've finished the whole bottle, too.

    I got this off from

    I agreed with you that it's a bit pricey. I'm now using the L'Oreal Micellar water which is so cool, completely affordable and effective!

  8. This sounds lovely but pricey! I may stick to my L'Oreal water...

  9. I am so interested to try this out! I keep hearing about it so it makes me curious. Maybe once I use up my Bioderma I'll try it out

  10. I buy this in France for around €9! I love the stuff. It works best on eye makeup I think. Whenever I am wearing eye makeup I will use this to take it off because it's so powerful.
