What Actually is Micellar Water?

Having heard people go on and on about Micellar water I decided to actually look into what it is! As a little project for myself I've decided that I'm going to be more careful with what I put on my skin, and I'm going to try and understand what specific products can do for me. 

Anyway, micellar water is a cleansing water that originates from France. It's supposed to be gentle on the skin, but effective at cleansing away the makeup of that day. The product itself, while seemingly as simply of water, is a blend of microscopic oils and water. Don't let the word oil put you off though. It's not like those products where you have to mix the oil and water, and it doesn't even have a hint of an oily texture. It simply feels like water, but it has that great power of an oil based cleanser. It's gets rid of makeup and grim on the skin, and leaves the skin feeling refreshed and toned.

I would probably say Bioderma is the most popular micellar water that you hear of but, whilst cheap in France, it can be hard to get hold of in the UK and when you do it tends to be on the pricey side of things. But, don't worry! If you can't get the France or don't want to pay the price of Bioderma you can quite easily get a hold of some of this miracle product. 

The beauty world is going to crazy for this bad boy, and I see it being the next BB cream. I'm sure soon most brands will have their own version that they claim is unique in some way, but the newest one on my radar if the B.Pure Micellar Water. It's available in Superdrug, where B. is sold exclusively, and it's under a fiver. It might be worth a try if you want to see if these products are worth the hype they are getting.

    1. I want to try the Etat Pur one, heard great things! The B range is great, I've tried a few products and I'm really happy with them! I haven't tried the no 7 water, but might do when the next lot of vouchers come out. I love no 7 skin care.

  4. I have been using the B. one from Superdrug & really like it. I haven't tried Bioderma but have used a couple of other brands Micellar Water & I like them. I like to use them before I cleanse to take most of my makeup off.
    I agree I bet this is the year of the Micellar Water. It will be interesting to see which brands bring one out.

    1. I'm hoping this is one thing hear to say, and not just a fad like BB cream. I think they are great. They are great, and more affordable ones are coming to the market! Can't wait to see who else brings out bigger, better and cheaper versions of this.
