Micellar water is considered by some makeup lovers a true gem of a way to remove your makeup. I mean, if you come home late with a ton of makeup on and you really want to get bed quickly a quick swipe of a cotton pad soaked in micellar water is the way to go. What’s not to love about that quickie makeup removal process right?
But some makeup junkies swear by micellar water as the sole way to remove makeup. It’s gentle, it removes makeup easily, and it doesn’t strip skin. Again, what’s not to love?
Well, others might argue that they never feel quite clean after using this method to remove their makeup.
So, micellar water, is it a yay or a nay?
There are definitely two teams when it comes to micellar water. Some people absolutely love and consider it an essential way to remove their makeup. Particularly those with sensitive or drier skin that hate using harsher cleansers that strip, break them out, or cause further dryness. I fear I’m caught somewhere in between the two teams!
I’d never sleep in my makeup. Not once in all my makeup loving years have I been so tired that I went to bed with my makeup on. Perhaps once in my life I MIGHT have fallen asleep with mascara on but an entire look still on my face? Nope. Never did it. I always remove it all before heading to bed.
But there are plenty of nights where I’m just too damn tired and micellar water is a God sent. A lot of formulas like Bioderm does a quick job of getting off makeup in a hurry when you want to get to bed! Yes, even waterproof mascara! Not to mention as someone with dry skin they are don’t strip my skin or leave it feeling dry the way a lot of cleansers do.
I never feel like my skin is fully clean or even deeply cleaned when I used them. That’s the one thing that stops me from using them daily!
I’m stuck in the middle with micellar water….!
Do you use them daily to remove makeup?
Or only ever once and a while because you don’t feel completely clean when using them?
