Review / B. Revealed Glycolic Cleanser & B. Pure Micellar Water

Wednesday, 12 August 2015

It took me a while to get into the Micellar Water craze - I seem a little bit late to the party, really.  After hearing good reviews about the B. Pure Micellar Water available at Superdrug, I thought I'd give it a try since I was in the market for a new oil-free makeup remover.  I enjoy using natural oils to take off my makeup in the cooler months, but I find my face is greasy enough during summer and doesn't react as nicely to it, so a micellar water seemed like a good choice.  It's usually £4.99, but is currently £2.35 as a part of better than 1/2 off offer.

The bottle describes it as a 'quick and easy 3-in-1 cleanser that dissolves impurities in a single sweep, no water required' and says that it's suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.  As well as using it as makeup remover, I believe you can also use this product as a toner.  As far as consistency goes, as the name suggests is basically a 'water' and has a very mild cucumbery sccent.  I must say, I'm very impressed with it!  It removes even my waterproof eye makeup with very little difficulty, and leaves my skin feeling nice and refreshed afterwards.  I always use it to take off my makeup just before I shower and cleanse my face properly, so I'm not sure how it works as a toner, but for makeup removal purposes this and a cotton pad do the job brilliantly.  I've been having very troublesome skin this year too and this hasn't broken me out or caused dry patches or any other issues so I'm very happy with it.

The other B. product I thought I'd try out was the B. Revealed Glycolic Cleansing Peel.  As I said, my skin hasn't been great this year and I figured that a gentle, glycolic exfoliant like this might help.  This is normally £7.99 (currently £3.95 in the same better than 1/2 price offer) and it comes with a muslin cloth included.  All you do is squeeze out a little bit (it's a thick-ish, white gel-like consistency and I only use a pea-sized amount), massage it into the face and leave for 3 minutes for a deep clean, then gently rub it off using the muslin cloth and splash your face with cold water to close up your pores again.  You can use it for less than 3 minutes as a normal cleanser as part of a lighter, daily routine too.  I've been using this once or twice a week for a while now and I must say I do really think that this has been one of the star products helping to mend my problem skin.  Just as it says on the bottle, it's evened out my complexion and restored some of its natural radiance, and as a little product goes a long way and you get a free cloth with it, I think this little beauty is quite a bargain.

Both of these products are cruelty free and vegan, and I'm almost definitely going to repurchase them once I run out.  These have impressed me so much I'm pretty excited to try out some more of the B. skincare range!

Have you tried these or any other B. skincare products before?


  1. I've never thought to try any of B's products before but both of these sound lovely, especially the peel! I'm glad they're working for you :) xx


    1. Believe me, so am I, haha! Got my eye on a few other skincare bits and pieces too so I hope the rest of the range is as good.
