CeraVe Hydrating Micellar Water Ultra Gentle Cleanser ($12.99) is a new cleansing water that is being added to the brand’s permanent collection this Spring and I quickly snatched it up because it contains ceramides and ceramides are excellent for my dry skin.
I’m not a huge micellar water user in all honesty and I typically rely on them for use after cleansing my face just to swipe off anything my regular double cleanse might have left behind. I actually loved doing this with It Cosmetics Miracle Water 3-in-1 Glow Tonic as it not only got the last residue of makeup off my face but also, it made my skin softer and brighter. However, I recently read you shouldn’t leave cleanse on your face even mild cleansing agents like micellar water. I thought that was incredibly interesting because micellar water is marketed as the quick, easy way to get off your makeup without stripping your skin.
None the less this isn’t a major problem for me because I don’t use them often enough to care. And I already ran through my It Cosmetics Miracle Water and haven’t bothered picking up a second bottle after reading that article. Shrug. Oh well.
But I digress, let’s get down to the CeraVe Hydrating Micellar Water review.
