So, I thought that It is important to discuss about removing the makeup at the end of the day! It is the world’s worst decision to let the makeup stay on your skin when you are done with the day. Sleeping with the makeup on can cause a lot of damage to your skin including rashes, Pimples, drying out of the skin, clogging the pores and even leads to wrinkles and other aging related signs! That is a very high price to pay for a moment of laziness. But I am a mother of a 8 month old baby girl and I need to find quick and easy fixes for everything!
So, I was out to find a simple way for makeup removal, A lazy girl’s shortcut product and I found this- Micellar Water!
Micellar water is still a very uncommon and unknown product in India. Cleaning off the makeup is taken care by makeup removers alone. Else the good old soap or face wash does the job just fine!
But micellar water is not just another random thing that professionals have put out there to con us out of our money. It is a real deal you guyz. It looks and feels like normal fresh cold water but just wipe your face with it and say BYE-BYE to dirt, grime, heavy/ light makeup etc etc. At the same time, your skin is left so hydrated and supple, there is no need to even moisturize!
Micellar water is actually soft water in which microscopic (very very very tiny) oil particles are suspended. These suspended oil particles are called micelles (hence the name). These micelles actually hook on tightly to the dirt and other unwanted particles on your skin. When wiped off, all of this unwanted particles comes off. You don’t even have to rinse your face after using micellar water. It is basically every lazy girl’s best friend!
The first time I went in search of micellar water in the supermarket, naturally there were various brands on the shelves. The only ones that caught my eyes were from Garnier and L’Oréal! I blindly chose the L’Oréal’s micellar water. It is called the L’Oréal Hydra Total 5 Micellar Cleansing Water. Now this is my second bottle and I am very very happy with it so far. It has literally shortened my night time routine so much, all I do is wipe away all the makeup with micellar water and just go off to sleep. And my skin feels more and more healthy and hydrated by the day!
I bought this one for 33 AED (approx 595 Rs) from a supermarket near my home. Micellar water is available in various other brands too, if you do not prefer L’Oréal!
Kani’s View- It is a must have for every girl, be it you are a heavy makeup user or light makeup user. Even if you do not use makeup at all, it is a good idea to clean your face with micellar water at the end of the day. Use it religiously and I guarantee you will notice a huge difference in your skin.
