Of the many things to inspire us to want to venture to France—croissants, éclairs, the ever-elegant “it” girl style—micellar water might be the one thing that makes us truly feel French.
How micellar water gained such popularity
Micellar water is essentially microscopic beads of detergent suspended in soft water. These tiny beads act as a magnet to attract dirt and oil without stripping the face of its naturally protective sebum barrier.
The best part about this cleansing water? You don’t have to rinse it off! This soft and gentle cleanser quickly caught on and became the staple for many makeup artists and celebrities after its launch.
What are the benefits of micellar water?
This cleansing miracle does more than just speed up your nightly routine. Here are more benefits of using micellar water in your regimen.
A non-drying hand sanitizer
We know that alcohol-based hand sanitizers used long-term can have a negative effect on our hands. Nothing is more irritating than rubbing a harsh astringent over dry, chapped skin. A quick fix? Micellar water. PLUS there’s no need to rinse. If it can cleanse your face, why not your hands? Simply pour a little bit into your hands, and rub until completely absorbed. Purified.
Refresh your skin on-the-go
Being that it doesn’t require a rinse-off, micellar water is perfect for a mid-day pick-me-up or a quick refresh after a gym workout. Mess-free and fast, there’s no reason there shouldn’t be a bottle of this Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Water in your bag.
