What is Micellar Water? And why you should make it a Skincare Essential

What is Micellar water? Micellar Water is a mixture made up of "micelles" (tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules) in soft water. 

I've first heard about Micellar Water in 2014 when I heard about the French brand, Bioderma. I was wondering what this product what and what the craze was about. I looked into purchasing this product then I saw that it was only available in France. I was a little skeptical about Micellar Water because I thought it was going to be a gimmick product, why can't you just wash your face with regular water? 

Over the past few years, I've noticed more brands producing Micellar Water and I have been loving it ever since. I have incorporated Micellar Water into my routine and my skin has been loving it. 


I use Micellar Water after I remove my makeup. After I wipe my skin with a makeup wipe, I like to follow up with Micellar Water on a cotton pad to give myself some extra cleansing. 

I also like to use Micellar Water after the gym to refresh my skin and to just refresh my skin throughout the day. This is also perfect for when you're on vacation. 

I have been using the Garnier Skin Active Micellar Water. I love how easy it is to use and it's very gentle on my sensitive skin. 

Will you be adding Micellar Water to your skincare routine? Do you have a favorite? Let me know in the comments!
