Benefits Of Using Micellar Water


Let’s be honest, how many times have you slept in your makeup after a long and tiring day? We all know the answer! All of us are guilty of skipping the different steps involved in removing makeup because we are genuinely tired by the end of the day. Forget using a cleanser, toner or a makeup remover, wiping the face with a wet tissue seems like a task and this is where the role of Micellar Water comes in.

It has become one of my favorite products after I started using it. I keep cotton and a bottle of micellar water near my bed to clean my face on days I feel lazy. This multipurpose product has simplified my skincare routine and I am absolutely loving it.

What is Micellar Water?

Micellar Water sufficiently cleanses and removes makeup without the need for rinsing. Simple, right? Micellar waters have gained worldwide popularity and are being commonly used by women who want an easy approach to cleaning their faces. But what is so special about this simple looking liquid that beauty and makeup artists swear by this product? 

How Does Micellar Water Work?

Micellar water involves the action of tiny balls of cleansers suspended in water that draw out impurities and keep the skin hydrated. These ingredients are gentle on the skin and effectively remove every trace of dirt and makeup thus simplifying your skincare routine!

How do you use it?

You can easily remove makeup, oil, sebum, and impurities in one simple step. Apply a generous amount of this water to a cotton ball and clean your skin in gentle circular motions. Carefully clean the area around the eyes. There is no need of using a cleanser, toner or makeup remover and you do not need to rinse your face after using it. Sounds unbelievable? 

I am sure you must have realized why I am loving it so much these days. I am damn lazy and this product seems so helpful- one quick step and I can sleep with a clean face every night.

Can You Use Micellar Water On Sensitive Skin?

Free of soap and other harsh chemicals, micellar water is amazing for sensitive skin. It contains mild ingredients that will not irritate your skin.

Benefits Of Using Micellar Water:

Cleanser and Toner (No Rinsing Required)

Micellar water draws out impurities from the skin, it cleans your pores so that you get the benefits of cleanser and toner in one product. It leaves the skin so nourished that you don’t have to rinse your face after using it. 

Makeup Remover

Micellar water is an effective yet gentle alternative to makeup removers. Formulated with skin loving vitamins, it traps and dissolves makeup making it easy to clean the face, eyes, lips.

Travel Companion

Micellar water is a women’s best travel companion. It is not possible to find a running water supply everywhere you go and it is in these situations that you will find this product useful-One quick swipe is enough to cleanse the skin and unclog pores leaving the skin clean, fresh and revitalized.

Time Saver

Women with busy schedules who find it difficult to pay attention to their skin should turn to this cleansing water. All you should do is to keep some cotton pads in your room and you can easily sleep with a make free face.


This liquid formula is made with ingredients that do not irritate the skin and is free of soap which makes it suitable for all skin types.

Sensitive Skin

Facial cleansers and alcohol-based toners are harsh on sensitive skin. Micellar water boosts hydration and soothes the skin making it a perfect substitute over your regular cleansers. It is free of irritants that cause the sensitive skin to breakout.

Non Drying

Micellar water does not strip the skin of its natural oils and helps in keeping it healthy. It removes every impurity from the skin without drying it out.

    I know this is a weird question, but what does it smell like? I have a sensitive nose and struggle with certain face products.

      Hello Katie, I have used simple micellar water which has a faint smell that does not bother me. However, if you have a very sensitive nose, then it may bother you.
