Avene Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make-up Remover

Hello lovelies,

these bottles are Avene Au Thermale Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make-up Remover. The product comes in a clear bottle and the liquid inside is also clear, like water.

Use it like any other micellar water on the market, by drop some on a cotton pad and use that damped cotton pad to clean the skin (when the skin's condition is dry).


Gentle no-rinse cleanser, toner and make-up remover (3-in-1). Technologically advanced cleansing water removes impurities and make-up (400 ml / 13.52 oz). It is based on a micelle principle that protects and releases cleansing agents and softening actives upon contact with skin. Alcohol, soap, and oil-free care for the face and eyes.
Skin Type: Normal/Combination, Dry

  • • No-rinse cleansing water cleanses skin and effectively removes all traces of make-up on face, eyes and lips 
  • • Hyaluronic acid hydrates, leaving skin moisturized and soft 
  • • Chamomile calms the skin 
  • • Pleasant fragrance tolerated by sensitive skin 
  • • Preservative-free, oil-free 
  • • Soap-free, oil-free, alcohol-free 
  • • Avène Thermal Spring Water to soothe and soften skin 
  • • Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
  • • Normal to dry skin 
  • • Redness-prone skin
    Key Ingredients Include:
  • • Avène Thermal Spring Water (96%) - Soothes and softens 
  • • Chamomile (Alpha-bisabolol) - Soothes
  • • Hyaluronic acid (Sodium hyaluronate) - Moisturizes 
  • • Gentle surfactant - Cleanses and removes make-up
  • • Apply AM/PM to face and neck with a cotton pad. Finish with a fine mist of Avène Thermal Spring Water.

The product is so comfortable to be used in terms of the gentleness of the formula, so when used on the skin it felt refreshed and pleasant without any allergic reaction, dryness, whatsoever that considered as discomfort.

But, I need to check their efficacy as a makeup cleanser.


On my hand there's lines made from waterproof makeups such as waterproof gel eyeliners, crayon eyeliners, pencil eyeliners, to liquid eyeliners and liquid lipsticks. Those are known to be hard core and very difficult to be cleaned.


And seems like Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make-up Remover also have difficulties cleaning it thoroughly. Some of them are left behind even after rubbing.

The most difficult one is a liquid lipstick from the controversial brand.



A great cleanser for everyone from very sensitive skin to just about anyone who need a cleanser. It takes off everything that doesn't belong to the skin but doesn't irritate the skin whatsoever but can't be used on super waterproof makeup. Hence use a good makeup (or oil based) remover first and then followed by the Micellar Lotion to completely removed the residue that a makeup remover could've.

I'm using it on my family members that have very sensitive skin and it does works like a charm with other products recommended by Avene, such as the Spring Water.

Thank you Avene for the lovely product, perfect for traveling or just about anytime during the day. It removes all base makeup from BB cream, foundation and so on including most color makeup that are not super waterproof.
