Micellar water is (and I’m not exaggerating here) ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Most people get home and just wash their make up off with ordinary water. But the fact is, that’s not really the most effective method. If you have sensitive skin then micellar water is definitely the way to go. It is far more preferable to hard water (the water that comes from your tap) which usually has harsh effects on the skin. Micellar water is designed to be cleaned using soft cotton pads rather than rinsed. That’s why it is a better carry-on option. It is a combination of micelle particles suspended in soft water and is designed to clean out all kinds of makeup (including the waterproof ones). Here are five brands micellar water you can choose to have:
Bioderma: This is the most famous of them all. It is one of the few products that’s capable of removing waterproof mascara. It is the best option backstage at most fashion weeks and a must-have for every girl’s bathroom cabinet.
La Roche-Posay: One of its best-selling features is the fact that this product is designed specifically for sensitive, blemish-prone and oily skin. The product aims to balance the skin’s serum production as well as gently cleansing the skin.
Garnier: This product comes in a bumper size. It is quite affordable and has a hypoallergenic formula. It is the best option when time is tight because it is fast acting. There are other formulas as well for various skin types and sensitive skin.
Decleor: It is powerful enough to remove the toughest of makeup but gentle enough so as to leave the skin feeling revitalised and soothed. It also has essential nutrients that will protect the skin from external irritants.
Simple: This brand is known for creating products that are gentle on the skin and well, simple! It is also the most affordable micellar water and it is brilliant for sensitive skin too.
Skin care is important for everyone. You can have a quality beauty product at affordable price. These products are available at the Essenza stores.
