Why Your Skin Will Love Micellar Water

Why Your Skin Will Love Micellar Water

In short, micellar water is a great soap-free solution for removing make up on the go. All you have to do is soak a cotton pad through with the liquid and use it as a makeup wipe. Not only does it effectively remove foundation and even the toughest waterproof makeup, it’ll also cleanse and tone your skin at the same time.

Top tips:

  • Soak a cotton pad and press down on eyes to remove waterproof liner or mascara. The micellar water will melt the makeup, so you don’t have to aggressively rub the area.
  • A little goes a long way! Fold your damp cotton pad in half to spread the solution out. The last thing you want is a sopping wet cotton pad that’ll drip everywhere.
