First of all, I have to say sorry you guys! I have been ultra busy these past days and the products I have to review are piling up! So I wanted to come at you with a quick review of a product and brand that I discovered a few weeks ago! I went to Shoppers Drugmart looking to purchase another bottle of the Bioderma Make up remover that I love. As you know, I am now a fan of cleansing waters. While looking for a bottle of Sebium H20 I stumbled across the stand of the N°7 brand; created by Boots, popular pharmacy chain in the United Kingdom. Weirdly enough, I had never noticed the N°7 stand although I practically live in the cosmetic aisle of Shoppers Drugmart. I saw they had a very cheap cleansing water (less than 10$ on sale. Regular price is 13$) the N°7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water for Normal / Oily Skin, and, since I am always open to trying new brands, I picked it up.
The packaging is quite nice, a clear bottle with a green pump. I have been using it every evening for the past 3 weeks to remove all traces of makeup and, am absolutely loving it. It performs as well as Bioderma’s Sebium H20 and Sephora’s cleansing water.
The N°7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water is enriched with multi-vitamins to help hydrate your skin and includes zinc to regulate oil production. I use two cotton pads that I saturate for 4 to 5 pumps of products. That is enough to remove all of my makeup except for mascara. It does have a little bit of a hard time removing mascara but I use a bit of almond oil on a cotton pad and it takes care of that better than any makeup remove I have come across so far. The formula has a very subtle fresh cucumber scent that I really like and leaved my skin feeling clean and moisturized. I am definitely looking forward to trying more N°7 products.
A few words about the brand: A range of hypo-allergenic and dermatologically tested products created using only trusted ingredients. British women have loved the affordable quality of N°7 skin care for 75 years. This extensive range includes scientifically proven skin care and body care treats for a healthy year round radiance.
