Ziaja Marine Algae Micellar Cleansing Water Review

Hey Everyone!
Hope you all are well :)

For as long as I can remember I have always used a product in some shape or form to pre cleanse my skin. Sometimes it might have been a makeup wipe other times it might have been a specific type of cleanser but over the last year or so I have been using cleansing waters. The first cleansing water I tried out was the Garnier Micellar Water and I absolutely adored it. It worked really well at removing the bulk of my makeup prior to cleansing and it is reasonably priced too so win-win. 
A few months ago while waiting for an event to start myself an Anita from were chatting away about products, as us beauty bloggers love to do and she kindly gave me one of her spare bottles of the Ziaja Marine Algae Micellar Cleansing Water. Up until that point I had only tried the Garnier cleansing water so I was looking forward to putting this one to the test especially as Ziaja products are nice and affordable too!

As the name suggests, the Ziaja Micellar Cleansing water belongs to the company's Marine Algae line of products which is best suited to those who are 30+ or those who have dry & normal skin types. My skin is very sensitive and I've always suffered with dehydration and patches of dryness too. More recently though my skin is becoming a little oily around my nose and chin while remaining very dry elsewhere on my face. Even though I'm more of a combination skin type now I still think this product works really well with my skin. The cleanser contains algae funnily enough and is packed with provitamin b5. It aims to prevent dehydration and sooth skin irritations. What I love in particular though is that it is fragrance free which suits my sensitive skin to a tee!

I soak two cotton pads in the water and then I begin sweeping the pads around my face to remove my makeup. I start with the face makeup and it does a fantastic job at removing the top layer of foundation off of my skin. Once I'm satisfied with the face I move onto the eyes and it does equally as good a job at breaking down and removing eye makeup. When that step is complete I'm ready to move on to deep cleansing my skin!

One big difference I noted between this cleansing water and the Garnier cleansing water is that the Ziaja one doesn't leave a residue on the skin. Other than that there isn't much more I can say about this product, it does what it sets out to do and I'm very pleased with it!

The Ziaja Marine Algae Micellar Cleansing Water costs €4.49 so if you see it stocked in a pharmacy near you give it a go. It's inexpensive and works a treat!

Until next time :)
