In early September 2018, I purchased some products from Sephora.

Here's my haul. I already reviewed Pat McGrath Labs Mattetrance Lipstick in Venus in Furs (middle left), Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 (top middle), and Huda Beauty Demi Matte Cream Lipstick in SheEO (bottom left). For this post, I will review Sephora micellar water on the top left.

Description from the package: Micellar water - with a fresh, light texture - traps and lifts off impurities and makeup, for pleasant and easy cleansing. You don't need to rinse, the skin is clear, soft, never greasy or sticky! An ideal cleanser for traveling.
Ingredients:
Thoughts: I'm not too sure where I first heard about this product, but I heard good raves about it. For that reason, I've been wanting to try this product. I finally purchased it.
Here's a closer look at the opening.
Here's a swatch of the product on a cotton pad.
Here's a swatch of liquid lipstick on the left and liquid eyeliner on the right. I swiped in the middle with micellar cleansing water on a cotton pad.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's a strong scent while using. It doesn't completely smell like pomegranate but you can it is pomegranate. I just sniffed the product and it smells the same while using. I actually don't mind the scent as long as it's not on the lips. When I use the product on the lips, I feel like it leaves a scent. Throughout the day I lick my lips and knowing the product might be swallowed doesn't make me happy. I'm sure it's all mental. Secondly, the packaging is nice. It's simple and the pink micellar water stands out through the see through packaging. With that said, it's well-made and sturdy. It's made out of thick plastic. The top is also sturdy. I can hear a clicking noise, as well as, a tight seal when I open and close. I cannot see it open or break unless you are rough with the packaging. For this reason, it's travel-friendly. It's small enough to throw in your purse, bag, and even put it in your pocket. The hole of the lid is on the small side. Since it's so small, it's kind of hard to squeeze. Even though it's hard to squeeze, you have full control of the quantity you pour out. I like that the color of the micellar water is pink. You can tell how much is squeezed onto the cotton pad. Third, the consistency is on the liquid side. It's easy to use. I squeeze the product onto a cotton pad and apply on areas I want to remove like the eyes, swatch on my hand, and so on. With that said, it removes most products. I noticed when it comes to harder to remove products like liquid lipsticks, it takes more effort. I need to rub more than I like. It's not good for the skin, as well as, it doesn't completely remove the liquid lipstick stain off my hand. I see a little swatch no matter how much I rub. I never had this experience with the other micellar water I have tried. I'm not too sure why. It's possible it doesn't remove waterproof products. I cannot completely say since I haven't used this product on any waterproof makeup. Lastly, I'm glad I got to try this product. I've been curious about this product and it seems like it's not sold on Sephora website anymore. It's possible other reviewers thought the same. I don't know but I know it's not listed anymore.

Pros:
* Smells like pomegranate.
* Nice, simple, see through packaging.
* Well-made and sturdy packaging.
* Sturdy top; makes a clicking noise and can feel a tight seal when you open and close.
* Travel-friendly.
* Full control of the quantity you squeeze.

Cons:

* Hole of the lid is on the small size; hard to squeeze.

Would repurchase: No.
