Micellar water cleansers are super gentle on your skin, and yet they’re able to remove all the grime and makeup from your face in just a few swipes. What exactly is a micellar water cleanser? These gentle makeup removers are made up of micelles – tiny oil molecules suspended in water. The micelles help to attract dirt particles to themselves, drawing out impurities and makeup from your skin without drying it out. Thanks to the oil, they’re able to remove waterproof makeup as well.
To use, soak a cotton pad with micellar water and gently wipe off all traces of sunscreen, dirt and makeup. Hold the cotton pad over your eyes to dissolve waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Your skin will feel clean and fresh afterwards without any sticky residue.
