What’s the deal with Micellar water?

Micellar water has become quite the rage within the beauty community. It has gained tremendous popularity within the past couple of years, and because I’m curious and hadn’t tried it, I picked up some for myself.

I was a little skeptical about what this stuff claims to do. After all, how can a variation of water remove the most stubborn makeup effortlessly? It didn’t make a whole lot of sense in my mind, hence why I’ve avoided it for this long.

I recently caved and picked up Marcelle’s micellar water for oily skin. It was recommended to me by the cosmetician at my local Shoppers Drugmart, and for the price (roughly $12 for a 500ml bottle), I figured I had nothing to lose.

I honestly don’t know why I waited so long to try it.

One use of this stuff has me hooked, and I imagine I’ll continue using for quite some time, so long as it doesn’t start to melt my skin or something along those lines.

I’m a realist, what can I say.

I was absolutely floored by how well this stuff took my makeup off. I use a heavy, full coverage, long lasting foundation, and one swipe with a cotton pad took it clean away. I had to use three cotton pads to get all of my makeup off, but not much product itself is required to remove makeup.

From what I’ve read, micellar water is a great option for those of us with sensitive skin because of its simple nature. It doesn’t contain any harsh ingredients, yet it works like a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on a grimy bathtub.

You can’t really ask for much more out of a product.

If you haven’t tried this stuff, I highly recommend doing so. Maybe just don’t wait as long as I did.
