Micellar water is the top skincare product of the hour. Kept secret for a long time by makeup professionals, this cleanser is now available to everyone (and that’s a good thing for us!). You’ve probably heard many things about it; here are the truths and myths about the product:

1) Gentle solution for ultra-sensitive, allergenic and reactive skin?

This is its most important quality: micellar water doesn’t affect the natural balance of your skin! Gentle, it leaves the skin hydrated, unlike the other cleansing products, which can sometimes be too harsh. You know that itchy, tight feeling you get after washing your face? With micellar water, this will never happen. It gently glides on your skin, attracting all dirt and impurities without stripping your skin from its natural protective moisture barrier.

2) No rinsing or repetitive rubbing necessary?

No need to rinse your face after cleansing it with micellar water. The reason is that the formula’s micelles (small liquid crystals in suspension) vacuum up the oil, makeup and dirt like a magnet, but leave the natural oils of your skin. It’s this property that keeps you from having to rub your skin with a cotton pad. Instead, you only need to wipe it gently for a deep cleanse!

3) An efficient makeup remover, even for waterproof eye makeup?

Now, it’s no surprise that Garnier’s Micellar water [V1] is a revolutionary makeup removal solution! It attracts everything: lipstick, foundation, mascara, and eye shadow, even the waterproof or the long lasting ones. All at once? Yes! Just put a few drops on a cotton pad, and everything comes off like magic. Your skin will be truly, deeply clean, but also smooth and hydrated.

4) Can it replace the toner?

It may look like it, but micellar water is not a toner. It is a cleanser with a hydrating action. When you apply it on your face, it unclogs the dirt from your pores, but does not have the property to close them as a toner would do. To choose the toner that suits you the best, compare the characteristics of the products offered by Garnier.

5) Can micellar water be used with all skin type?

Anyone can use micellar water as a makeup remover. No matter if your skin is oily, combination, dry or normal, it will leave your face radiant and silky. And the good news is, it particularly suits sensitive skins! Because of its composition and its application method, it doesn’t upset the natural balance of the skin or cause any irritation.

Now that you know the truth about micellar water, the only thing left to do is to try it! Garnier offers it in different formats (100 ml, 125 ml and 400 ml), and in three formulas: Original, Sensitive Skin and All-in-one.
