About three years ago, Micellar Water became a key beauty trend and it is now a staple beauty product that you cannot afford not to have. It feels like it came out of nowhere but Micellar Water originated from France and they have been using it for years. It is a non-rinse, soap free cleansing water that is mostly used to remove makeup. I say mostly because some brands are also used a cleanser and moisturiser. One of the key reasons why it is loved so much is because it cleanses the skin without stripping it of its essential nutrients.
For me it’s a great substitute for wipes for removing makeup as I end up using 10 – 15 wipes for a full face of makeup. I have read that it doesn’t necessarily remove waterproof makeup though so it’s something to consider if you wear waterproof makeup quite often. I am currently using the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water which promises to remove makeup, cleanse and soothe without rinsing. I usually use cotton pads, I dab the micellar water on them and proceed to remove my makeup, it is so quick and convenient.
