Make-up artists and beauty bloggers alike sing the praises of micellar water for its gentle yet thorough cleansing. Hailing from France, the cleansing water has been a skincare staple in French women’s beauty regimes for years. Now the product has crossed the channel to the UK and plenty of brands are offering the cult cleanser.
If you want to give micellar water a try – take a look at the following products to see which one would suit you best:
Cleansing, toning and refreshing, this three-in-one product is perfect for those after a multi-tasking cleanser that is gentle enough for sensitive skin. Be aware that if you have heavy eye make-up, you may need a little extra help getting it off.
Easily dissolving stubborn make-up, this is one of the more hardworking micellar water products out there. Leaves skin looking fresh and clear, the only downside of Sensibio H2O is that outside of France it can be difficult to track down.
Another gentle cleanser, the Physiological Micellar Solution is ideal for skin types that get easily irritated. A favourite of top make-up artist Lisa Eldridge, this product may be more pricey than other brands but it has the results to back it up.
Leaves skin feeling wonderfully hydrated and soft, this formula is great for dry skin types. The dispense pump also makes using the cleanser a pleasure, not a chore. The price tag may put some people off, but skincare is the one place we don’t recommend scrimping on.
