What is Micellar Water?

what is micellar water

What is Micellar Water? What is a cleansing water? Curious about cleansing and micellar waters? A lot of folks are. A while ago I wrote an article entitled “Cleansing Waters: Are They Necessary to Your Makeup Removal?” and much of what I said in it still stands true. I’m not really a huge fan of micellar waters aside from the fact of how quick, easy, and super fast it is to remove makeup when I’m being lazy!

In 2012, NARS Makeup Removing Water launched and soon after MAC released their own variation. At the time it looked like we were headed into a trend and might just see more micellar waters releasing from a variety of brands…! But the trend kinda died out slightly but with the recent introduction of Simple Micellar Water you might see more and more cleansing waters hitting the market.

So what’s is a micellar water anyway?

Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar Review

I purchased this item and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post.

Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar 2

Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar is a new follow up product to last year’s Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Cleanser (which I really liked). I’m a big fan of charcoal type products! I love Lush Dark Angels, adore Coal Face, and I think that MAC Volcanic Ask Mask is the bees knees.

Last year, I actually really enjoyed Biore’s Charcoal Cleanser too but many people weren’t so keen….! If you experienced problems with it I likely wouldn’t recommend a purchase of the Biore Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar as it has some of the same ingredients including peppermint which isn’t exactly kindly to your face (and really an unnecessary ingredient anyway!).
