The 5 Best Micellar Waters For All Skin Types Available At Your Local Drugstore

Categories : BI MY, Skincare

If you wake up with mascara still smeared across your eyes, it’s probably that you aren’t removing your makeup correctly. We already know the importance of removing your makeup each night but do you know which product also offers up the best results? We’re bringing to you the lowdown on micellar water and where to find the best at your local drugstore!

Micellar water is more than just a luxurious makeup remover and it’s hard to deny the appeal of its simplicity. Although we do prefer cleaning milk or an oil-based cleanser at times for more heavy duty makeup, micellar water is more than sufficient to remove light makeup. It can be intimidating and confusing to navigate the world of beauty products, so we’ve listed 5 micellar waters suitable for all skin types below.

Skin Care

With rose water as a key ingredient, this micellar water is packed with antioxidants and a multitude of skincare benefits to provide tender loving care for the skin without stripping of the skin’s moisture. Did you know the sugars and natural oils found in rose petals trap moisture in the skin and makes the skin look smoother and softer? We’re definitely saying yes to a skin-loving makeup remover!
