Just call it the minimalist skin-care, after all, it’s just “water”. With nothing much to it but just micelles (tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules) suspended in soft water, Micellar water has been the French woman’s best-kept secret to amazing skin since the 90s. Beloved by makeup artists as a soap-free, non-rinse method for giving their clients a quick cleanse, beauty brands like Garnier, Lancôme, and Borghese have caught on the Micellar water trend and introduced it’s magic to the masses.
With the introduction of micellar water to the masses, here’s are some of the benefits of this exciting product.
NO.1 It’s amazing for all skin types
Micellar water was created as a face-washing alternative to using the harsh French tap water. It is mild, non-irritating, and perfectly suitable for use on even the most sensitive skin.
NO.2 It can be used as a makeup remover
It is an ideal makeup remover as it gently cleanses and removes makeup from the eyes and face in one step. Due to the fatty micelle molecules, it easily wipes off makeup with no smears, picking up stubborn sebum and dissolving away dirt and long-wear makeup.
NO.3 It leaves your skin feeling hydrated and nourished
As compared to other cleansers, it is free of soap, fragrance, alcohol, and other abrasive chemicals that can wreak havoc on your complexion daily.
NO.4 It’s a good makeup brush cleaner
You can use micellar water as a brush cleaner. Micellar water is made to get rid of dirt and oil, which helps get rid of all that build up on your makeup brushes.
NO.5 it acts as a skin toner
You can use micellar water as an all-over toner. Micellar water actually draws out all the oil and dirt that can be found on the surface of your skin and rinses your pores. Its lightweight formula may look like water, but its properties make it an excellent cleansing agent for your skin, without the oil-stripping ingredients often found in toners.
