My interest in micellars is not fading any time soon. I first came into contact with the Cosmetics a La Carte Total Lift Off one step Clean for Lashes and Face at my custom blend experience. It was used to remove the make up that I was wearing and then to remove the iterations of my custom blend. Which is did without any irritation or tautness to my skin.
The first thing that I noticed was the colour. Unlike the majority of micellars, this one is pink and when the bottle is shaken it foams more than other micellars that I have tried. The pink colour I associate with the rose oil in the product.The rose fragrance – whilst rose if not my preferred fragrance in a product and this scent is quite strong, it did not put me off using it as one it is on the skin, you can’t smell it.
The other difference between this and other micellars that I have tried is that Total Lift Off is a cleanser and toner in one. Personally I am not a fan of multi functional cleansers so I use this to remove make up in the evening and I always use a separate toner afterwards. It is very gentle on the skin, there is no tightness/tautness after use. You will need to go over your face a couple of times more than with Bioderma but this is a good product for travelling and /or no make up days.
