Lancôme Eau Fraiche Douceur Micellar Cleansing Water

Lancôme Eau Fraiche Douceur Micellar Cleansing Water retails for $38.00/$50.00 for 200mL / 400mL. Cleansing waters have been slowly gaining in popularity here stateside but they have been a staple in other parts of the world for years. Lancôme Eau Fraiche Douceur Micellar Cleansing Water is a part of their permanent skin care line and the 200mL size can be found at all Lancôme retailers/counters.

Every now and then I get an urge to try a product JUST to see if it is worth the hype. I have read a few reviews on other popular cleansing waters that are sold over seas and can be a bit hard to purchase stateside. By chance I ran into Lancôme Eau Fraiche Douceur Micellar Cleansing Water at Sephora when I was on the search for a different toner because I wasn’t a fan of my old one. I ended up opting for a cleansing water as an option to cleanse my face prior to makeup application/when I am in a hurry/or for whenever my skin feels funky because I was admittedly misusing my toner as a spot cleanser/refresher. Cleansing waters are like an all in one product that removes makeup, gently cleanses and tones (somewhat)

My preferred way to use this is with these lovely cotton rounds from Target.

Now that we are done with my mini cleansing water lecture, what do I think of Lancôme Eau Fraiche Douceur Micellar Cleansing Water? I have to say that I really, really like it. I don’t think I have ever used a product like Lancôme Eau Fraiche Douceur Micellar Cleansing Water. It fits my need nicely: cleansing my skin without burning, stinging or leaving a weird residue, provides spot cleansing especially between testing out products and it removes makeup like a champ.

Lancôme Eau Fraiche Douceur Micellar Cleansing Water has no detectable scent and is formulated with Rose de France which soothes and Micellar Technology. BTW Micelles are made of fatty acid esters which tend to glob to makeup, dirt, pollution, etc. to help whisk away those impurities, leaving you with fresh, gently cleansed skin.

My first foray into cleansing waters has been a success! I cannot rave enough about Lancôme’s Eau Fraiche Douceur Micellar Cleansing Water. Have you tried a cleansing water yet? If so, which is your fave?

  6. I think I need to jump on the cleansing water bandwagon!

  7. I am loving some Micellar water lately!

  8. I’ve never tried them. I’ve seen them on blogs a lot lately. Hopefully, I will have some money to get one soon

  9. I need this for traveling!

  10. I’ve never tried anything like this. Sounds promising :)

  11. I have never tried a cleansing water. I read about them but they are sooo pricey.

  12. I;ve never tried cleansing water before.

  13. I’ve only tried the koh gen do cleansing water.

  14. I tried cleansing waters before, and found them a great alternative to tap water when my skin is feeling irritated. My favorite one is from Klorane :)

  15. I can’t wait until I find some readily availible at the drugstore- I’m terrible at using a little! I like A LOT!

  16. I haven’t tried anything similar to this but it sounds amazing, and I love the flowers in the background.

  17. First I’ve heard of a cleansing water! I’ll need to give it a try!

  18. Never tried it, but my eyes are really rebelling against my current makeup remover, so I need to get something different. This sounds pretty cool.

  19. Oh I love cleansing/micellar water. I have tried this one before; right now I’m consuming Caudalie.

  20. I’ve never tried a cleansing water but you’re making a good case for picking up this one!

  21. I still haven´ t tried any this kind of cleansing waters, but this one sounds great.

  22. Oooh, I’ll have to check this out. I’ve never tried a cleansing water!

  23. This looks like a great product. I just was trying out the eye makeup remover yesterday!

  24. do you use the cleansing water in place of a toner, or use it as a cleanser?

  25. I’d actually been eying this one recently but I’m not sure about moving away from Bioderma h2o – it’s the original and figure it works damn good.

  26. This sounds so intriguing! I’m glad it was a success for you.

  27. I have never heard of cleansing water let alone try one for myself. This is quite interesting but for the price I think I won’t gamble buying it right away. I have very sensitive skin and nose, I can’t stand any strong scent on my face and it will wreak havoc on my face if it doesn’t favor the product. To be safe, I’ll do a little research of my own first.

    • I would definitely suggest you research first especially if you have sensitive skin. I know there are cheaper alternative but I have not yet tested them yet. The Sephora line carries a cleansing water that runs from $12-$20 depending on the size. Boderma is also another popular one but that too is quite pricy here in the US. Good luck and I would be interested to know what your experience was like with the cleansing water you chose.
