Micellar Water has been a product that has been sold for years, but has been brought into the mainstream by Garnier. It is water with small cleansing molecules. When it connects with the oil and dirt on your face, it lets the make up be wiped off your face.
For that reason, it is a great way to clear your skin off all traces of makeup, including mascara and lipstick like a classic makeup remover, but it is gentle enough to use on your whole face.
I wouldn’t use it as the only cleanser on a day where I have worn a full face of makeup. It preps the skin for a full-on cleanse. I use it on a cotton pad and wipe away in areas, so my forehead, eyes, cheeks and will just keep going until it’s quite clear. Then I cleanse and moisturise after.
I think this has helped my skin a lot. I’m not having to vigorously cleanse the make up off. This way is so much more gentle. And at the price that it is, it’s definitely within the budget.
