Sorry Guerlain...whilst I love you, I think this product is slightly superfluous to anyone's skincare regime!
My complaints here are not targeted at this product specifically, but more expensive make up removers in general.
It is a lovely product. Full stop. It smells lovely, is light, removes make up effectively, and nourishes the skin. That is pretty much all I have to say about this product.
Yes, it does the job. As will a £2 make up remover. As long as you are using a high quality cleanser, I don't see the point in splashing out on this product at all! I used to use this when I was using roughly about 1679 products from the Guerlain range (slight exaggeration) and maybe was slightly duped into buying it by the Guerlain consultant.
No-one needs such a product! Need is, naturally, different from want, and if you have the money, why not give this product a go?
However most of us have better things to spend money on. In my opinion, make up removers in themselves are a product invented by marketing that aren't necessarily necessary. If your cleanser is good enough (like for example Estee Lauder's Splash Away) it will remove all traces of make up anyway. The only exception to this I will make is a different eye make up remover if you have sensitive eyes.
However I wear a lot of make up every day, and sometimes use (cheap) make up remover before cleansing...but only when I'm feeling very lazy and leisurely about taking off my make up, and is not necessary at all.
Overall I shall give this 3 stars: 5 stars for the actual product and it doing its job, and 1 star from the point it is a rather pointless product!
