Micellar Waters for Makeup Removal

 

Micellar waters are a makeup-artist favorite worldwide and they certainly are very useful (and quick!) for light makeup removal and cleansing. Micellar cleansing waters may have been limited to French pharmacy brands till a few years back but more and more drugstore skincare brands are jumping on cleansing water bandwagon. While brands like Garnier and Nivea haven’t yet introduced their very popular and affordable micellar cleansing waters in the Indian market, we do have options like Bioderma, Avene, Vichy and Yves Rocher to try out!

Micellar cleansing waters basically look and feel just like water but on a microscopic level, they contain tiny oil molecules that attach themselves to dirt and oil on the skin, which are then cleansed off. They are simple to use – just soak a cotton pad with the micellar water, rest on the skin for a few seconds and wipe off. The cleansing agents using in micellar waters are mild and in low concentration, so there is no stinging or tingling, making them ideal for sensitive skin. But for the same reason, they are not the most effective choice for waterproof or long stay makeup and you may need several rounds of cleansing to get stubborn makeup off.

But the no-rinse formula and ease of use definitely makes these very handy for travel and for situations where you may not have the luxury of a proper cleanse with running water. And you can use them for the entire face, including the eyes and the lips. I personally love the fact that micellar waters feel really gentle and leave the skin cleansed and refreshed.

I’ve shared my thoughts on a few cleansing waters that I’ve used below.
