nivea pearl white micellar water review

Effective yet gentle makeup remover
Leaves no residue or product
Free from paraben, alcohol, fragrance, silicone & colourant 
Brighter, smoother & softer skin after use


In a transparent pour bottle for easy view of the amount left. Still prefer my pump bottle. This does not have a refill packaging option. I hope all companies can really consider having refill packs to cut down on plastic consumption.


No/faint alcoholic scent.


Liquid, very much like water. It is very runny so do note to use a bigger cotton pad to catch all the product.


Tested on a full (swatch) of makeup again. Trying to keep to roughly the same products that I have used previously so that you can have a comparison. Read my reviews on the other micellar waters I have tried recently: Botanics Hydration Burst Micellar Cleansing Water, Biore Perfect Micellar Cleansing Water (Anti Acne).

From left to right:

Eyebrow - K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow 
BB cream - Nature Republic Eco BB Cream
Blush - TheFaceShop Single Powder Blush
Lips - Kylie Matte Liquid Lipstick 
Mascara - Heroine Make Long&Curl Waterproof Mascara

After 1 swipe
You can still see leftover of most of the products... one simple wipe is not enough to remove your make up girls.

After multiple swipes
Most of the makeup came off with little effort (even the super lasting matte lipstick). Only some of Heroine Make's mascara was left. Not too bad for micellar water really.

The amount of products removed. 
Doesn't take much tugging and effort. Despite being a gentle makeup cleanser, it is very effective and cleans well. 


I really don't feel anything after using this product for removal (no stickiness, hydrating, or moisturising etc feeling). It just feels like how fresh skin feels. Despite so, I will still wash with a facial cleanser afterwards. 


Formulated to be suitable for sensitive skin and the ingredients used were aligned to it. It is free from any potential irritant so it should really work for all skin types. 

Brighter, smoother, softer skin?

Honestly, I am not expecting anything for a product that has a contact time of <5 minutes with my skin. (Will be more worried if my skin really look brighter, smoother and softer after 1 use). 

Standing at a size of 200mL and a price of $10.90 (it is often on sale, look out for that!), I think Nivea Pearl White Micellair Water provides more value than what you paid for. It works great for light to medium makeup but you probably have to opt for an oil-based remover to get any waterproof eye makeup off. It does not have any funky scent and leaves my skin feeling great after that. Most importantly, it cleans rather well without much effort.


- No/little scent
- Suitable for even sensitive skins
- Great ingredient list 
- Affordable
- Good removal power
- No stickiness/pain on the skin after removal


- Does not work very well with waterproof eye makeup
- Packaging

Removal power: 4.5/5

Repurchasing if I'm not trying out new micellar cleansing water :D
