Micellar waters. They have been around for years now and some are better than others. I am a big fan of having a bottle hanging around because occasionally, only occasionally I must add, I am just too damn tired
Drunk to stand at the sink and take my makeup off, Or sometimes I’m wearing more makeup than usual and don’t want to waste my ‘good’ balm cleansers on makeup removal and this is where Micellar waters have their place in my beauty arsenal. I have used the original Bioderma Water in previous years and really got along with it, It seemed to be kind to my skin and Didn’t leave too much of a residue on the surface of my skin like some other brands can.
If you have never tried a Micellar water, They are basically a watery cleanser which has been infused with oils to remove makeup & daily grime leaving the skin clean and fresh, a really fuss-free way to cleanse the skin without the need of water. Bioderma Sébium H2O has been formulated especially for oily skins so it shouldn’t cause breakouts or excessive dryness, well it didn’t for me anyway. Swiping the Micellar soaked cotton pad over my skin & even my eyes it gently removes most traces of makeup. I have to say, it’s not 100% effective at getting every scrap of mascara off but that doesn’t bother me too much because I then go in for a second cleanse with a balm cleanser.
This is one of those products that I totally recommend you have in, you know, Just in case. I personally wouldn’t ditch a proper cleanser with a micellar water but there is no denying how handy they actually are.
Grab a bottle of the Bioderma Sébium H2O from Escentual for £10.80 (250ml).
