Why we love micellar water
We talk about dual-purpose beauty products all the time (get a load of these incredible multi-tasking goodies), but micellar water’s on another level. Good for your skin and great at removing make-up, it’s a total beauty game-changer and, in my opinion, one of the best skincare inventions yet. Need more convincing? Here’s a handy video explaining what it is, why I love it so much and how to use it.

What is micellar water?
Micellar water looks and feels a lot like a toner, except that it contains oil molecules to work as a cleanser.
Who is it suitable for?
It’s suitable for all skin types (sensitive, normal and oily).
How much does it cost?
It’s also great value, costing roughly $15 for 200mL. Hot tip: The Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Water is a steal at $12.99 for 400mL.
How do I use micellar water?
Squeeze a little bit of micellar water onto a cotton pad, and then wipe it gently across your face to remove make-up and impurities. Your skin should feel super-soft and clean afterwards.
Always! Make sure you use a cotton pad for the best result (a tissue won’t work as well).
