Review : L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution

L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Micellar Water Solution in Australia

I’ve heard that L’Oreal Paris Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution is making its way to Australia soon-ish, but meanwhile I got my cousin to buy me not one, but TWO bottles of this baby from Boots (UK drugstore mecca; Aussie equivalent is the beloved Priceline) when she came to Australia last October (yes, my review is nearly half a year late!).  I’m glad I got her to buy me TWO bottles because…(spoiler alert)…I love it a lot!

‘TGIF’ used to be one of my favourite 4-letter acronyms as it meant the weekend was round the corner…but nowadays, being on maternity leave with no set routine and also, suffering severe insomnia, has made all my days merge into one another and I am no longer looking forward to the weekends.  Instead, I am looking forward to when bubs pops out as soon as possible.  ’ASAP’ has now become my favourite 4-letter acronym!!!

Which leads me to today’s post on ASAP, an Australian cosmeceutical skin care company, which focuses on “the science of beautiful skin”.  I was sent a range of products from the ASAP range for review purposes and they came at the perfect time as my skin has been going through some pregnancy hormonal changes.  It was misbehaving and I needed something gentle yet effective… ASAP!!

During the ASAP skincare trial period (6 weeks and counting), my skincare profile and issues were :  hormone-related, dryness with flaky skin, increased pigmentation, clogged pores and blackheads especially around the nose, and an occasional zit on cheek affair.  If you are displaying similar skincare characteristics, this is a review you don’t want to miss ;)
