How is cleansing with micellar water different than other cleansers?
If you’ve heard of micellar water but aren’t sure of its benefits we’re giving you an overview today. There are many great benefits to using this product but it helps to know how the product functions in comparison to others. We’re giving you the lowdown on micellar water’s usability, cleaning abilities and portability. Find out how to clean your face with micellar water and if it’s the right product for you.
1. Ease Of Use
One of the best features of micellar water is how easy it is to use. You can use micellar water anywhere; you don’t even need a sink to rinse it off. All you need is two cotton balls or pads in which you pour the micellar water onto, then lightly glide those over your face. You will immediately be able to see the dirt and grime that the cleansing water attracts. Repeat this process until you have removed all traces of make up, dirt and oil off your face. It usually takes two to four cotton rounds to completely cleanse your skin depending on how much makeup you wear.
Micellar water contains micelles which are oil-based particles that can attract other particles and lift them off your face. Micellar water is extremely thorough and can dissolve a variety of make up products such as foundation, eye make up and mascara. It also removes sweat and excess oil. Frequently skin care and make up removal means two separate products but what’s great about micellar water is that it can tackle both.
Many cleansers come in large bottles that aren’t convenient to carry around. When you try to pour them into a smaller container it can be a messy affair as the product can be too thick to easily pour into a travel-size bottle. Micellar water is easy to pour making it a perfect travel companion. Garnier SkinActive’s Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Makeup Remover and Cleanser comes in a 13.5 ounce bottle, but can easily be poured into smaller containers making it gym and travel-friendly.
4. Compatible With All Skin Types
Micellar water has a very gentle formulation and it’s compatible with all skin types. It’s effective yet leaves skin hydrated and refreshed. Even if your skin is dry or sensitive micellar water won’t leave your skin feeling tight or looking flaky.
