Micellar water. You’ve probably heard it on your favorite Instagrammer’s page, seen it on your best friend’s beauty counter, or stumbled across it in ULTA. Is it actually water? What’s the point of using it? Can it help my skin?
YES! Micellar water is a great cleanser, one of the reasons being you don’t have to wash it off! It removes all makeup, oil, and other gunk from your pores while toning your skin. It also works as a makeup remover on the toughest kinds of makeup – from lipstick to waterproof mascara. This fantastically dynamic cleanser is all thanks to tiny cleansing micelles that cling to debris on the skin, while purifying and softening the skin.
Many micellar waters just cleanse and do not have any other added benefits. Our Micellar Cleansing Water is a three-in-one micellar water that cleanses (it even removes waterproof makeup), tones and hydrates and leaves absolutely no residue on the skin. It is formulated with over 95% natural and naturally derived ingredients and no fragrance, so it is amazing for all skin types, including sensitive. It contains Icelandic Glacial Water which protects, nurtures and fights free radicals, Arctic Algae Extract detoxifies, Nordic Birch Sap boosts collagen production, Aloe Leaf Juice soothes and Witch Hazel refreshes. Plus, it comes in an easy to use pump package!
How does it work? The way micellar water works is that a mild surfactant, the natural chemical that gets rid of dirt and makeup, clusters up into tiny balls called micelles. Once you pump it onto a cotton round, the micelles rearrange themselves for optimal cleansing. (If you are interested: the more in-depth science on this). All you need to do is saturate a cotton round with the micellar water, and swipe over the skin. You can see all the grime and dirt sweep away!
