Micellar water has been a buzz word in the beauty world over the last year, but why? What makes it so special, and does it really
What is it?
Micellar water is made up of micelles, which are minuscule balls of cleansing oil molecules, suspended in soft water. So despite popular belief, it is not just fancy water, there's a real science behind it. Dermatologist Hadley King stated "the idea is that micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin".
It is an absolute must-have for make up artists and models because it can remove a full face of makeup without leaving any oily residue behind like most cleansers do. It's basically a 3 in 1 makeup remover, face wash and moisturiser.
Does it work?
In short, yes is bloody does! It was the industry's best kept secret for years, originally created in the 90s for Parisian women to deal with the hard water. However in recent years models and MUAs have brought it to the publics attention, with brands like Garnier creating their own.
It is perfect for anyone who's busy, likes to party or just wants amazing skin. It works well for sensitive or stressed skin, plus it's the easiest skin care routine ever because it's all you need to use. If you have particularly oily skin, it may not be the best product for you, but try it out and decide for yourself!
