Vichy Purete Thermalè Beautifying cleansing micellar oil and Fresh cleansing gel

Do you ever want to try a product just because it has pretty packaging? This was me with Vichy's Purete Thermalè range. I knew I definitely wanted to try the Beautifying cleansing micellar oil and then I was lucky enough to win both this and the Fresh cleansing gel from Escentual.

Vichy Purete Thermale Beautifying cleansing micellar oil and Fresh cleansing gel
As I've already mentioned the packaging of this range really appeals to me. I think it's the pale aqua blue coloured bottles and white tops that gives me a case of the heart eye emoji. Both bottles come with a different kind of pump that I find work well with the type of product inside.

I'll start with my favourite product, which is definitely the Beautifying cleansing micellar oil. So we've had micellar waters and cleansing oils and now we have a combination of the two in the form of a micellar oil. In terms of micellar water micelles are tiny molecules that float in the water that attract oil, dirt, makeup etc away from your face so they can be swept away leaving the skin clean. I'm assuming that a micellar oil means that these micelles are suspended in oil rather than water. 

This is a very light oil that is so beautiful to apply. It glides over my skin with ease and feels so silky smooth, I love spending time massaging this around my face dissolving away every scrap of makeup, including eye products. Add a few drops of water and it emulsifies to a milky texture that rinses away leaving no oily residue and silky soft moisturised skin. Prior to trying this my favourite cleansing oil was The Body Shop's Camomile silky cleansing oil, but I think this has now bagged the top spot. 

I was a little hesitant about trying the Fresh cleansing gel as this is a foaming cleanser and I've had a bad experience with a foaming cleanser and my dry skin. For the first few days I carefully monitored my skin to make sure it wasn't making my dehydration problems a whole lot worse and I haven't experienced any problems with it. This one is billed as the perfect cleanser for city living as it's designed to protect the skin from pollutants and the effects of hard water.

This does foam up well so I find I only need around half a pump for my whole face. As it does create a foam I like to use this with my Magnitone Lucid. Be warned though, if you do use this with a cleansing brush it will flick everywhere, including in your eyes and mouth, so it's probably best to keep them both closed! This does leave my skin feeling really clean and fresh but it can occasionally leave my skin just the tiniest bit dry, usually if I've used it on its own rather than with my Magnitone. I'm not as keen on this one as the micellar oil but I do still like it. 

The Vichy Purete Thermalè Beautifying cleansing micellar oil is £13.75 and the Fresh cleansing gel £12 and both are available from Escentual and Boots stores. 

Have you tried anything from the Vichy Purete Thermalè range?

  1. I've heard a lot of good things about Vichy but I'm yet to give them a try. I love my Garnier micellar water so this sounds interesting!

    1. I'm the same. If something hasn't got packaging that appeals to me I won't even think of buying it unless I've tried a sample and know the product is good! x

  3. I love the packaging of this stuff and I am nearly half way through the micellar cleansing oil; totally agree this product is beaut!
