Today I’m reviewing the Pacifica Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Tonic from my March Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]
We make it easy to be good with this simple step in cleansing that requires no water and no rinsing. Fortified coconut, calendula and grapefruit waters, this powerful tonic helps capture and lift away dirt, oil and impurities without harsh rubbing or over-drying. For all skin types
First off, this smells very strongly of coconut, which I have an aversion to. It smells like bad suntan lotion to me – but if you like coconut scented products, then you will probably like this.
I only used this micellar water once because it triggered a reaction! The one rare occasion that I didn’t do a skin patch test first – my skin felt like it was burning and turned red! I immediately ran to wash it off with my most gentle cream cleanser and then put on a soothing facial moisturizer and managed to calm my skin down within about an hour.
I don’t see any obvious sensitivity triggers for my skin in the ingredient list so I’m assuming that it is something in the “parfum (natural)” blend in the ingredients that is not specified. I’m not willing to test this on my face again. I’ve had no problems with any of their skincare that I’ve tried before, so I was quite surprised!
Ingredients 100% Cruelty-Free and Vegan | aqua (purified), sorbitan oleate decylglucoside crosspolymer, decyl glucoside, glycerin, cocos nucifera (coconut) water, calendula officinalis (flower) extract, citrus grandis (grapefruit) fruit water, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, parfum (natural).
Have you tried this?
Thanks for reading
