Wardah Seaweed Cleansing Micellar Water Review

Hi, there. I'm slowly beginning to try and blog again, so I thought why not start with a topic that I'm quite familiar with, which is skincare. I haven't really been trying a lot of skincare products, but there are few that I would like to share my thoughts with you. 

Skincare, especially cleansing and sun care, has been one of my favorite things to blog about. I love the idea of taking care of our skin that it looks and feels beautiful on its own. I'm not saying that I dislike makeup, but I'm just more comfortable with being makeup-free most of the time. 

Before I start rambling, let me share what I think about Wardah's latest micellar cleansing water. With the cleansing water trend on the rise, I'm glad to see more local brands releasing their own cleansing water. I have been a loyal Bioderma user since early 2014 and I have yet to 'convert' to other brands because of the fragrance component.


Wardah's cleansing water doesn't contain fragrance. 

I repeat.

It does NOT contain fragrance.

Surprising, isn't it? Most local brands almost always has this ingredient without fail. Maybe consumers just love sniffing the products on their time off, but I digress.

This 240 ml cleansing water is packed in a flip top bottle that is quite secure, but then again I haven't really tested it out travelling or *accidentally* dropping it on the floor the from third floor. Looks pretty safe though, just maybe don't go off dropping it from a tall building?


Moving on to the ingredients list, I'm not gonna explain each one of them like I usually do. However, I'm just gonna point out a few things that is interesting as I go along reviewing it.

I wouldn't say this is completely scent-free as I can still smell a slightly salty-fresh scent, maybe it's the seaweed combined with the cucumber extract that is making that scent? Not sure. It's not the greatest scent, but it didn't bother me too much. I guess my definition of troublesome scent is if it makes me nauseated and gives a throbbing headache.

As with most cleansing water, you pour it onto a cotton pad and proceed to wipe your face thoroughly, without the need to rinse it off. I didn't feel any stinging sensation as it cleanses my face, even around my eye area.

Its power to take off makeup is (surprisingly) wonderful as it can remove some of my stubborn lip tint. I'm not a heavy eye makeup user, so I can't really evaluate it on cleansing away the waterproof eyeliners and whatnot. My usual makeup routine consists of :


a thin layer of foundation
a dab of concealer
a touch of powder
a hint of lipstick or lip tint.



Micellar water usually is enough to strip all that off. The problem usually comes after cleansing; will this break me out and piss me off the rest of the week?

I have been testing this for a month to see if said problem were to arise, but (luckily) it hasn't. My face is still the same oily-combination skin with a few sunspots here and there. I am GLAD to report that there has been no addition to the family, acne-wise.

The only downside for me (or rather my oily combination skin) is the slight 'oiliness' on my T-zone area afterwards. This could be a saving grace for those with dry skin since it won't leave your skin dry after cleansing. Well, it does have lots of skin conditioning agents, so that pretty much explains it.



Overall, I enjoyed using the cleansing micellar water from Wardah because it's affordable with decent cleansing for light makeup users like myself. Have you tried this product yet? Let me know what you think about it in the comments below. Until then, I'll see you later~
