Taaj Micellaire Water Makeup Remover | Review



Back in February, nestled within my JolieBox Beauty Box, was this little bottle of micellaire water makeup remover. I didn't use it straight away, I was quite happy with the cleansing routine I had, and I didn't feel as though I needed an extra step when removing my makeup as my Liz Earle did the job well enough. However, when going to my boyfriends for the night, I threw this in my handbag along with some cotton wool pads, just because I wasn't too sure I still had a cleanser hidden away in his bathroom cabinet (you know what men are like, they always use your cosmetics and hope you won't notice). I decided to use this to remove my makeup, and then went ahead and cleansed afterwards, and now this has become part of my evening skincare routine. It is quite honestly, amazing. I know there is an awful lot of hype surrounding the Bioderma Micellaire Solution , but I have yet to try it. After using this, I don't feel the need to either. 

Before receiving this in my JolieBox, I had never heard of Taaj as a brand, and I have found that it isn't that easy to get  hold of online. I should imagine that it's very easy if you live in France (damn you amazing french brands). You can buy it HERE on Amazon and also over on the JolieBox website. It is priced accordingly at £16.87, as for 500ml this will last you an absolute LIFETIME. I knew immediately once my sample had gone, I had to have a new bottle ready and waiting to be cracked open. I even kept the little empty one, so that I could refill it from the larger bottle for travelling or overnight stays. I have honestly become a bit addicted to this makeup remover.

It claims to be purifying and revitalizing and that is exactly what it is. It feels so refreshing on my skin, takes away every trace of makeup with one easy swipe (no rubbing or piles of cotton wool pads) and leaves my skin looking and feeling fresh and healthy. I like to use this before bed to remove any traces of makeup from the day. I then go to the bathroom sink and do a cleanse just to clarify my skin and make sure it's squeaky clean before bed. I sometimes even use this when I wake up in the mornings, just because I've become a bit addicted to the feeling it leaves on my skin. It's like an instant pick me up. It also smells beautiful, not too strong, just fresh and light.

If you are looking to buy or try out a micellaire water makeup remover, I would strongly urge you to try this. I will be buying this until they stop making it (heaven forbid this day ever comes). I now want to try out various other things from this brand too, as I am so impressed.

Have you tried anything else from Taaj? Tried this and loved it as much as I do?

  2. Sounds amazing! I've never even tried water makeup remover, I'm a wipes girl. This review has swayed me a little bit to try some out though, I must consider signing up for Jolie Box so I can have my own experience discovering new products.
    Great review Zoe!

  4. You inspire me so much. I love your blog, I found it a few months ago and I love reading your posts, your so easy to relate to! I've also been watching you and Louise on Youtube, and your the funniest people ever. I literally just sit there laughing at you both, I loved the video you did for Louise's birthday! :) How did you create the edge around yours images? It looks really pretty. I've just started my own beauty, fashion and lifestyle blog too, and I've tried to take your tips into account.

  5. Oooh, I might give this a try after my Bioderma has run out - It is truly awesome stuff, but there is no scent to it and the packaging is just quite plain. I know that sounds silly, but little things eh? Plus, I'm on my 4th bottle so I wouldn't mind trying something else - Especially with your recommendation, woop!

    Thanks Zoe!

  20. Does it take off mascara? I always find that the most annoying to get rid of when trying new brands! xx

  21. Ah this is exactly what I love about beauty boxes, getting to try new brands or products you've never heard of and finding something that you love! I've never tried a micellaire water either so I think I'll have to get some of this one now, I can't wait to order some!! :)

  24. That looks good! I haven't heard of the brand before. I'm tempted to try the This Works clean skin 5-in-1 water from Boots which is meant to be similar to the Bioderma :)

  25. can't wait to try this after reading your review,
    can I get it online? coz I live in HongKong, can't get it in pharmacy.

  28. I'd never heard of this brand before you mentioned it. But now, since yourself and essiebutton have both raved about it, I'm keen to track down one of their products and give it a go. I wonder how this compares to the Caudalie Cleansing Water (which I love). Oh, and I had to laugh when you mentioned the men stealing our beauty products thing. My boyfriend does that all the time. I'll mention to him "oh...you should give my Argan Oil a try" and he'll say "um...I kind of already have..." ;)

  29. I hadnt heard of this before, but it is definitely something I would like to try! Thanks for sharing this with us Zoe. I have linked you in my most recent blog post as one of my favourite bloggers! Taaj sounds like an indian name, what other products do they have?

  52. I am currently using the Avène micellar lotion and I love it. I wanted to try Bioderma too, but Avène is much easier available here so I really think that it's a pity that you can't find this Taaj cleanser everywhere :( I really want to try it as it sounds so amazing, although the Avène one is great too and I heard teh La Roche-Posay one is also lovely!

  92. What Is Sales Tax?
    Sales tax is imposed on all retail sales, leases and rentals of most goods, as well as taxable services. In other words a sales tax is a tax on the end-purchase of a good, so it normally does not apply if a sale is for re-sale or for subsequent processing. Sales tax normally a certain percentage that is added onto the price of a good or service that is purchased.
    Your sales tax responsibilities as a new business owner, whether you start a business or buy an existing business, will vary depending on the type of organization or entity you operate. Besides state level, estimation of sales tax is also done on municipal or county levels. Payment of state sales tax depends on your sales and your state's regulations.
    Normally it is the consumers who are burdened with sales tax. The re-sellers on the other hand, are exempted from sales tax, provided they do not use the goods on which sales tax is levied.
