Micellar water, or cleansing water, is the lazy persons saviour for removing makeup. It takes hardly any time at all to put this bad boy on a cotton pad and remove all of your makeup. These cleansing waters have become a huge trend within the past couple of years in the beauty community. Lots of brands are coming out with there own version at all price points and they are not all created equal. Today I’ll be talking about the brand new La Roche Posay Micellar Water for Dry/Reactive Skin.
So what is a cleansing/micellar water? Well, it’s basically water that’s infused with tiny oil molecules, called micelles (get it, micellar water), that absorb dirt and oil. It’s also a three-in-one product that is a cleanser, a makeup remover and a toner that can be used on all skin types.
I use cleansing waters at night to remove my makeup and also in the morning as my cleanser. I put some of the cleansing water on a cotton pad and wipe it on my face, no need to rinse after that. I need a cleansing water that is effective, gentle, and non drying.
The new La Roche Posay Micellar Water for Dry/Reactive Skin is one of my new favourite cleansing waters. It has little to no scent and isn’t harsh on the skin. It feels just like water on your skin but magically removes every trace of makeup. It make take more than one cotton pad if you’re wearing a full face but it does the job! It didn’t still my eyes or give me a reaction in any sort of way. It has everything I want in a cleansing water.
I recommend this product for sure. If you’re into cleansing waters, like me, you should try this out!
