Why micellar water deserves a spot in your beauty kit

If you’re still wondering if micellar water is worth the hoo-ha, read to find out why should add it to your beauty kit right away.

What is micellar water?
Micellar water contains micelles, small clusters of fatty acid esters that are attracted to dirt and oil; hence, they are used to draw out impurities without drying out skin.

More than a cleanser
Unlike your regular cleanser, micellar water doesn’t require rinsing, hence, making it a great product for those who’re always on the go. Just wipe away the product with a cotton pad and your skin is fresh and clean.

Good for sensitive skin
Micellar water was created in France in response to harsh tap water. It’s a gentle product that’s free of soap, fragrance, alcohol and other common irritants.

Replace it with your regular face wipes
It’s very tempting to use face wipes after the end of the day to remove makeup. But most wet wipes are loaded with chemicals and can be harsh on your skin. Micellar water or micellar wipes are just as convenient but a lot safer and effective.

Bye-bye makeup blunders
Correct your makeup mistakes in a jiffy by dipping cotton swap in micellar water and clean up the edges of lipstick or jagged eye liner.

Travel light
Instead of carrying a makeup remover and cleanser, just carry micellar water as it works as both. Pick one that has hydrating properties.
