Quite a long time ago I bought a toner from HEMA. I didn’t expect too much from it, I just needed a new one and I though the packaging looked cute, so I decided to go ahead and buy it. A while later I heard they came out with a micellair water. Since I’m a big fan of that, I decided to give that a try as well. Today I’m going to review both products. If you’re interested in finding out how I like these two super budget proof skincare products, make sure you keep on reading!
Let’s start off with the HEMA Hydrating Cleansing Tonic. It comes in a big round bottle that contains 250 ml of product. The bottle is clear and very simple. It only says the necessary things like the name of the brand, the name of the range, what it is and for which skintype it’s made. I like that it’s so clean and simple. It gives it a more professional look in my opinion.
This specific tonic is made for normal to combination skin. According to HEMA this tonic cleanses your skin thoroughly but mildly. It’s supposed to be moisturising and to help hydrate the skin. In my experience tonic’s or toners are pretty harsh and drying, so if these claims are true, it would be a great product even for those who can’t handle the harshness of normal toners.
But sadly those claims are not completely true. Because I have oily skin my skin can handle this product. But if you have normal, dry or sensitive skin, you have to stay away from this product. It’s not super harsh, but it’s definitely way too drying for you.
When it comes to cleansing your skin I do think this product does a great job. It’s a nice last step of my evening skincare routine. It removes the last bits and pieces of dirt and makeup and it leaves you with amazing smelling skin. I really like it for that.
Onto the micellair water. It comes in a similar packaging as the toner and I, again, really like it. it’s clean and simple and it really represents what a micellair water stands for (in my opinion).
Unlike the toner, which is made for normal to combination skin, this micellair water is made for all skin types. Just like the toner it claims to be hydrating. It also claims to remove impurities and makeup from the face. It’s supposed to be refreshing and it’s supposed to make your skin feel soft again.
Overall I think the claims HEMA makes are true. It does cleanse the skin, it’s definitely a sensitive product and it does make my skin feel soft. However, it’s not my favourite micellair water out there. I personally really like the Bioderma micellair water, and this just isn’t as good as that.
However. If you’re looking for a micellair water that isn’t too expensive this is a great product. I don’t think it’s the best because it doesn’t remove all of your makeup at once, which the Bioderma micellair does, but it’s not a bad product either. It’s okay.
Overall I’m pretty neutral when it comes to these two skincare products. I like the tonic better than the micellair water, but I can’t say that either one of them is a favourite of mine. For the amount of money you pay they are definitely great, but I prefer spending a little more and getting even better products.
The HEMA It’s My Beautiful Skin Day Toner and Micellair Water are available at the HEMA stores and site for €2,-.
That was it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading today’s review and let me know if you have ever tried HEMA skincare!
