I’m glad to be back, I had to take a break to take care of business! On today’s post I will be writing about Micellar Cleansing Water. If you haven’t heard of Micellar Cleansing Water you are totally missing out on GREATNESS! Trust when I say this is probably one of my favorite products to use when removing my makeup. You may ask why? The answer is that it makes my skin feel AMAZING once I remove my makeup.
What is micellar water? According to research, micellar water is made up of micelles, tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules, suspended in soft water. Micelles attract dirt, oil, and makeup from your skin. If you’re a visual learner and want a thorough breakdown of how micellar water works visit Lab Muffin. Micellar water is basically a whole skin care routine in one bottle, it cleanses and moisturizes at the same time. Additionally, this stuff work on your skin but you may want to double cleanse and use your face wash afterwards, however, it is not necessary.
How to apply micellar water? For this to work you cannot spray it onto your face and go, you will need to also purchase cotton pad to use with micellar water. First, you will need about 3-4 cotton pads per. Secondly, you will apply the micellar water onto the cotton pad. Lastly, you will apply it to your face to remove your makeup and/or oil.
If you have sensitive skin, then micellar water should work; however, you should always try a small amount of micellar water on a cotton pad near the bottom of you chin or neck and wait 24-hours to see if you have an allergic reaction to it. Additionally, make sure the brand of micellar water that you purchase does not contain alcohol because you do not want it to dry out your skin.
Fixes Makeup Mistakes
Some days, when I want to wear eye-liner, it’s not a daily thing for me, and I want to create the perfect wing I use micellar water. It’s so easy to mess up your eyeliner and I’ve noticed that micellar water helps with just about any mistake I make when applying makeup. I usually apply micellar water onto a Q-tip to fix my eyeliner.
One thing that I have noticed with micellar water is that it does not easily remove waterproof mascara. Since I do not wear mascara often it does not affect me but when I do wear it I make sure to use the products that I use to remove mascara prior to applying micellar water onto my face.
Removes False Lashes
There’s something about false lashes that we all love but may struggle with when it comes to removing them. However, with micellar water this process can become a lot smoother for you now. What you need to do is soak a cotton pad with micellar water and place it over your eyes for 15 to 20 seconds to loosen up the adhesive and the false lashes should just slide right off. Simple, right!
Cleans Makeup Brushes/Blenders
The norm is to clean your makeup brushes at least once a week. Since micellar water works to remove makeup, dirt, and oil it will also help clean your makeup brushes or beauty blenders. Remember that dirty makeup brushes/blenders can cause breakouts and irritation on your skin. There are two ways to clean your makeup brushes and/or blenders using micellar water. The first way is to pour a little into a bowl and switch your brushes around and lay them flat to dry. The second way is to soak a paper towel or cotton pad with micellar water and press it against the bristles then lay them flat to dry.
