What is this Micellar cleansing water everyone is talking about? Put simply, micelles are tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules suspended in soft water which are attracted to dirt and oil, so they are able to draw out impurities without drying out the skin.
Recommended for people with dry or sensitive skin, we tried it with our normal skin and found it didn’t strip our skin as water does. Especially as skin ages, the precious natural oil is worth protecting.
We tried Kiehl’s Herbal-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water which is gentle, hydrating and smells refreshing while removing all our makeup. ($28.) Infused with Thyme Essential Oil and Lemon Balm Floral Water, Kiehl’s cleansing water is formulated with 99.8% naturally derived ingredients (who doesn’t like that?)
Claims that it hydrates your skin for up to 24 hours seems like a stretch but we definitely had softer skin for hours after cleansing.
Ditch the harsh cleansing makeup remover and switch to gentle micellar water. We trust the Kiehl’s brand.
