So, what is micellar water and why do I need it? The small micellar particles in a micellar solution draw makeup and impurities away from the skin and work best when swept across the face with a cotton pad. For the best results, use at night to remove makeup and in the morning to cleanse the face. Although some micellar waters can be pricey, one bottle lasts a long time as you only need a few drops on your cotton pad for great results.

If you have been struggling with how to easily remove makeup quickly, then micellar waters will be perfect for you as there is no need to rinse afterwards. They have the consistency of water which feels refreshing on the skin and leaves no residue unlike some makeup wipes do.

Are makeup wipes bad for your skin? You may be wondering what is wrong with using makeup wipes. Although they are a godsend when you would rather jump into bed than go through your evening skincare routine, (we have all been there), the way in which they leave residue on the skin means that your skin is likely to become dry and irritated.
