Now that all that is out of the way, let’s talk micellar water: what they are and if they are worth your money
What is micellar water and why haven’t I heard of it?!
Lol, I’m not sure why you haven’t heard of it, but micellar water is made up of ‘micelles’ (we are about to get a tinny bit sciencey) which are miniature balls of cleansing molecules that float in water. These balls are attracted to dirt, oil, and makeup and once applied they draw out impurities without any harsh chemicals. They also dissolve makeup which means it is not dragged everywhere on your face!
It’s an easy, quick and effective way of cleansing your skin and removing your makeup. And you don’t need to rinse afterwards (yes you read that right- a girl’s dream!).
Quick, Easy and Effective
Of course I won’t be Sarah Fynn if I wasn’t sceptical about this! Lol, water that can take off my make up in an easy step and no rinse afterwards? Yh right! I swear by my baby wipes which get the job done: it takes a while, but done nevertheless. I heard about Bioderma (Which I still need to try btw) but I didn’t want to start out with that (it’s quite pricey, £12.98 for 500ml, purchase on Amazon). But I saw Superdrug’s version of it (£2.99) and decided to go for it.
I loved it! It was very effective in taking off all my make up! Including mascara without leaving me with panda eyes (don’t we hate that!). I used about 4 small cotton pads for my whole face. The bottle lasted me two weeks because I was over using it lol- hey I liked the smell and how my face felt afterwards.
From there, I was hooked. I heard of Simple (£4.49) and Garnier’s version and decided to try them too. I like the Garnier version better than the Simple micellar water and what’s great is that it comes in two sizes: 125ml (£1.99) and 400ml (£4.99). Simple’s one still works just as well but I just don’t like it as much. My favourite is still Superdrug’s version which had added vitamin E. You can purchase these on Superdrug > http://www.superdrug.com/Skin/Face/c/skin-face?q=%3Aname-asc%3Acategory%3Apt_skin_micellar_water&text=&minSel=0.0&maxSel=70.0&minSlider=0.0&maxSlider=70.0&resultsForPage=20&categorypt_skin_micellar_water=on#
I am still on a quest of trying out more of micellar water. I know Nivea (£4.09, Superdrug) has one and Sukin (£8.12, echemist> http://www.echemist.co.uk/buy-sukin ) has one too. Sukin is Australia’s top natural skincare brand which is now available in the UK! For more info on their products and where to get some of their products please read this post>> http://wp.me/p1uQOd-Eo I was invited to their press breakfast late last month. I received some products at the event, which I haven’t used yet, but a review will be up as soon as I do.
In conclusion, Micellar water is a great and effective way of removing your makeup. It’s literally the lazy girls dream lol. Still not convinced? Be like me and try with cheaper versions first, before investing in a more pricer one. You are welcome to try any of the above and if you do, please let me know your thoughts!
If you are a master of micellar water lol, let me know which ones are your favourite and I will be sure to check them out
I hope you enjoyed this post! Bye now and I will speak with you soon
