I’ve emptied my Bioré Micellar Water, so I had to get a new one. But because I also wanted to try out different brands, I bought this one from Maybelline at BeautyMNL.
Let me compare the two:
On the labels:
Maybelline Micellar Water:
💧Removes all makeup and UV products
💧 Removes trapped dirt and dust, refines pores
💧 Freshens likes a toner
💧 No need to rinse
💧 Suitable for sensitive skin
💧 No-fragrance, alcohol free, and oil free
Bioré Makeup Remover Micellar Cleansing Water:
💧Lifts off more makeup in 1 wipe 💧 Light & refreshing
💧 First thing I noticed is that Maybelline Micellar water, as indicated on the label, is unscented. It’s really just like water; it doesn’t have any scent to it.
On the other hand, Bioré Micellar Water has a mild scent that reminds me of an alcoholic beverage, maybe soju?! 😂 I wasn’t bothered at all, though.
💧 Next thing I noticed is that Maybelline has less oily residue than Bioré.
Good thing: It doesn’t feel greasy after.
Downside: Because it is less oily, removing my makeup isn’t as easy as when done with Bioré. (For me! It might be different with you, so do let me know! 😅)
💧 Both Micellar waters make my skin feel clean after thoroughly removing my makeup. It normally takes 4-6 cotton pads for me to remove my entire makeup.
💧 Price-wise, Maybelline wins. It’s got 200ml of the product, and it only costs P199; while Bioré’s 90ml bottle costs P189. So if you’re on the practical side, Maybelline is a better choice.
Overall, both products work just fine. 👌
My final thoughts:
Will definitely repurchase, BUT, I wanna try something else, too. Perhaps L’Oreal or Garnier next time?
