Hi guys! I can admit that Bielenda turmeric and chia micellar is one of my latest drugstore favorites. I’ve been tempted to buy the entire Botanic series since it hit the market.
Usually, when cosmetic companies release “natural” products, I have big doubts about it. This time it is positive: the packaging is so nice, the compositions are even nicer, finally something available at my fingertips, you do not need to order online anymore. Unfortunately, when I went to Rossman for 1 + 1 shopping, only this liquid was left on the shelves – in two different stores. Admittedly, the smaller ones… I don’t know if there is such a popular series or if it’s the distribution’s fault. In any case, testing the rest of the facial products will have to wait. So far I have finished one bottle of Bielenda micellar liquid and started another.

Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Sodium Lactate, Sorbitol, Sodium Cocoyl Alaninate, Panthenol, Curcuma Longa Root Extract, Salvia Hispanica Seed Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Benzyl Alcohol
Short, full-bodied composition with no artificial fragrances that can irritate the skin. As you can see, Botanic Spa Rituals moisturizing micellar water is very gentle. It has only one washing substance, Sodium Cocoyl Alaninate – a mild cleansing agent with bactericidal, softening and toning properties. At the beginning of the composition, we also find glycerin, followed by sodium lactate and sorbitol, which have anti-aging properties, soothing panthenol, quite high turmeric root extract and chia seed extract, hyaluronic acid and mild preservatives.
So it is as described on the packaging: 0% parabens, silicones, PEG, SLS, SLES, artificial fragrances, synthetic dyes, gluten. In addition, an attractive price in relation to the capacity and for such a natural product.
However, will one washing substance be able to remove makeup? I used to make a similar DIY liquid and it didn’t do very well, I finally cleaned my face with it after washing everything with oil liniment.
Bielenda micellar solution comes in a dark container, a 500 ml bottle made of dark green plastic (unfortunately type 1 PET). The design is very effective, botanical, looks nice on the shelf. A cap with a fairly large hole may leak too much product on the swab, due to the weight and dimensions of the bottle, I would prefer a pump, but it does not hinder the use of the product so much.
It is pleasant to wash your face with. It is almost odorless, colorless, slightly moisturizes and refreshes. Despite the presence of turmeric, it does not stain the skin yellow, does not irritate the skin, does not clog up or has drying properties. It does not irritate the eyes – I had this problem with many liquids, and I really like to wash my tired eyelids. This fluid leaves no fog on the eyes or a sticky film on the skin. Therefore, it is perfect for morning facial cleansing, refreshes and awakens, prepares the skin to absorb the serum. The product is also very efficient and the cylinder will last a long time.
Bielenda micellar water can handle make-up removal correctly, although it does not remove everything, while eye make-up can be done on average. You have to use a few swabs and the eyes are slightly irritated, I have to fix them with a cotton swab dipped in liquid, and after that, there is a smudge on my face at night. It doesn’t bother me too much, because I don’t use heavy, silicone foundations myself, which have to be washed off with gel anyway. The liquid copes with mineral makeup, and if I do a decent make-up removal, I use multi-stage washing, my cleansing does not end with removing makeup but with micellar water. The liquid is used to remove the top layer, mascara and heavier things, and so I like to wash it off with oil or washing lotion.
That is why I think that the new Bielenda liquid is a good, economical proposition for people who, like me, are looking for a gentle, everyday washing and refreshment. Unfortunately, I am not suitable for removing heavy, drugstore makeup, for these purposes it is better to look for a more powerful product.
Worth buying? Yes! For me, it is an excellent product for daily care and for this price I will buy it again, this time a different version of Bielenda Botanic micellar fluid.
