The latest beauty sensation to sweep its way across the channel is micellar water – a wonder product famed for removing every last trace of make-up, dirt and impurities in just a few wipes of the cotton pad.
Whilst micellar water has long since been standard in the beauty regime of French women, it’s only recently that the UK has cottoned on to this cult cleanser.
See our top three picks for every budget below:
This low cost offering by L’oreal is a great introduction to micellar water for those who don’t want to spend too much. This light formula will dissolve away even waterproof make-up without tugging at the skin whilst also unclogging pores and removing impurities. The only downside is the rectangle packaging design, which seems to leak slightly when you’re loading up your cotton pad.
This French pharmacy brand is now stocked in Boots and the star of the shelf is undoubtedly this high-end yet still purse friendly micellar water. This gentle formula means that it is suitable for even the most sensitive of skins, leaving the face and neck feeling hydrated and soft – not uncomfortable and tight like some of the more abrasive cleansers on the market.
Eau Micellaire Douceur by Lancome
This slightly more expensive offering from the skincare wizards at Lancome is a joy to use. The pump makes life just that little bit easier, whilst the White Lotus, rose de France and Japanese cedar bud give it that feeling of pure luxury.
