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.
