Let’s talk about removing makeup. Removing makeup, I admit, can be quite the chore. Especially when it’s at the end of the day and you are just plain exhausted. I’ve gone to bed many a nights with makeup still on my face despite knowing that it isn’t the greatest for your skin. I usually will suffer the consequences days later with a blemish or two.
Some of you may have been seeing products called Micellar Water being introduced to your favorite brands of products. What is it? What can it do for you? Micellar Water is basically a way to remove makeup and cleanse the skin. Many specifically designed makeup removers feel oily. Oil is great for breaking down makeup and removing it from the skin but it also leaves your skin feeling a bit oily afterwards. When going to sleep I don’t like to have that feeling of oil on my face.
Washing your face with a cleanser and water on really exhausting days can. just. be. too. much. Am I right? Micellar Water gives you the ability to remove makeup and cleanse the skin without any residue leftover. To use you simply apply a little to a cotton round and wipe all over you face. There is no need to rinse afterwards. Your skin just feels fresh and clean. You then can apply a night cream and hop into bed.
I picked up the Simple Micellar Cleansing Water at the drugstore as my first micellar water to try out. I love how it removes every bit of makeup from my face and doesn’t leave any residue on my skin afterwards. As long as I have some cotton rounds within reach, I’m pretty consistent with using it to remove my makeup at the end of a long day. Unlike oil based makeup remover or even some cleansing facial wipes, my favorite aspect of Micellar Water is not feeling like I have anything left on my skin after using it.
