A bottle of miracle Micellar water is sold every three seconds around the globe! Micellar water originated in Paris in the 90’s, and has since been the key skincare ingredient for French women.

So, how does it differentiate from other cleansers on the market? Micellar water unlike regular cleansers does not use harmful soaps or detergents- it contains tiny micelles (clusters of fatty acid esters) to dissolve impurities on the skin like make up, dirt and oil.

How to:

Simply soak a cotton pad with this golden liquid and wipe over the face. The world’s top make-up artists swear by it; we feel as though we’ve just discovered gold! This extremely gentle yet effective product removes make up and impurities naturally and effectively- leaving you with glowing clean skin.
