What is Micellar Water Anyway?

You have probably seen or heard something about Micellar water. There’s ads on tv, bloggers and YouTubers refer to it, and I’m even giving one away in my Spring Glamour Giveaway.

But why is it all about anyway?

What is Micellar Water?

The technical and scientific definition: Tiny micelles suspended in soft water that latch onto dirt, makeup or other impurities on the skin.

The plain English definition: lightweight liquid water which is an all-in-one cleanser, toner, purifier and makeup remover that doesn’t require washing off.

This product has actually been around for some time – way back when the French did not have access to fresh water that was not harsh on the skin. But it’s only now this ancient water is making a resurgence in the skincare and beauty world. And it looks like it’s here to stay.

How do you use it?

Add a small amount onto a makeup remover pad. Don’t use a tissue as they do not properly distribute the product.

Wipe the makeup pad over your face until your makeup is removed or until the entire face is covered in a light amount of product

That’s it! No need to rinse the product from your face or to do any additional steps.

Why use it?

  • It’s perfect for a lazy girl, like myself, who just wants simple and easy skincare.
  • This is great for travelling as it can refresh and cleanse yr skin, with the need for water. It also seems to work better than face wipes.
  • It removes makeup with leaving oils behind like traditional makeup removers.
  • It’s gentle on your face so great for anyone with sensitive skin

My own experience

I love micellar water. It has become an essential product in my bathroom and I use it daily. However it does not completely remove waterproof eyeliner or mascara, and I often need to use my makeup remover for that.

I would definitely recommend this product to everyone. Since using it I have noticed a difference in my skin with my skin being clearer, especially around the T zone and on the chin.
