Listen up lazy girls, I’m about to answer your skincare prayers. You thought cleansing your face in the shower was a dream? Well I’ve got two words for you that are even easier (once you figure out how to pronounce the first one): micellar water.
Micellar water was a huge North American trend in 2015 with what seemed like every brand bringing one to the market. Micellar water is made up of tiny micelles. These micelles attract dirt, oil and impurities and remove them from the skin without the harsh stripping action that happens with foaming cleansers. The product is great for any skin type, and leaves behind a hydrated glowy finish.
Now you’re probably wondering, “How is this a lazy girl’s dream?”. It’s a non-rinsing formula! That means you apply the micellar water to a cotton pad, swipe it on your face, then you’re good to go. In one product you can easily cleanse and hydrate. Plus the micelles are great at breaking down makeup.
Micellar water was a great addition to my skincare routine this past year. Here are a few to try out (captured in the photo above):
