Escentual have set me and 99 other bloggers, a blind-test trial. The products we are sampling are French micellar waters. There are seven waters and each one comes packaged in an identical dropper bottle labelled A-G, so we have no idea which is which. After we've sampled each one, we have a survey to fill in on how we thought each one performed.
I think it's a brilliant test, because you can't subconsciously be swayed by "ooh I love that brand" or packaging, you're basing your opinions solely on how it works, feels and smells. We have 14 days to trial all seven, so I've taken to using one for two days at a time as that gives me 4 (morning and night) applications and a good idea of how it cleanses and also how good or bad it is at removing makeup. I'm halfway through and have varying opinions on the ones I've sampled thus far. One I really didn't get on well with. After my 2 weeks, I thought I'd let you know details of each one. It's a really interesting trial isn't it?
What's even better is I haven't tried any of the seven before this trial. Actually the only cleansing water I've tried is Lancome Eau Micellaire Douceur, so it's interesting to see how these perform against that too. The samples we are using are the following:
Dior Instant Cleansing Water
Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water
Caudalie Make-Up Remover Cleansing Water
Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micelle Solution
Vichy Purete Thermale Calming Cleansing Micellar Solution
Avene Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make-up Remover
La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution
I can't wait to let you know how they did.
