Gentle and effective cleansing with a water from Lotus Aroma, Nivea, Caudalie and Bioderma!

A question that I often get is what the difference is between a micellar (water) cleanser and a regular cleanser that you use with water? Regular cleansers move dirt and impurities around and hopefully off your face while water cleansers use micelles to capture dirt and impurities like a magnet and immediately off the skin so no rinsing is required - and since you don't need to do any sort of rinsing or aggressive scrubbing, they are a great choice for sensitive skin. Here are a few that your skin will love:

Lotus Aroma Refreshing Micellar Solution - 200ml - $18 - cleans and thoroughly removes makeup and impurities from facial skin. Its pliant formula — free of soap and alcohol — is ideal for the sensitive areas around the eyes and lips. It goes on cleanly and leaves no greasy film. Rose and Melilot Floral Waters eliminate toxins while oxygenating and firming the skin. Grape seed Extract protects the skin against free radicals and environmental pollution and delivers a clearer, more youthful complexion. With a single stroke of a cotton pad, this rinse-free solution traps dirt to leave the skin cleansed and refreshed. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

Available at pharmacies and health food stores across Canada - go to to find a location near you.
Nivea Sensitive 3 in 1 Micellar Cleansing Water - 200ml - $9.99 - a mild but still highly effective fluid that cleanses, removes eye make-up and moisturizes to soothe the skin with Dexpanthenol and Grape Seed Oil and helps reduce signs of sensitive skin: redness due to dry skin, skin tightness and dryness - with no added parabens, colorants or perfume.

Available at drug and mass retailers across Canada.
Caudalie Make-Up Remover Cleansing Water - 100ml - $16 - with a gentle, soap-free formula that removes makeup from the face and eyes as it soothes, moisturizes, and softens skin without stripping. The improved formula is now more natural, more effective, and gentler on skin. The fresh fragrance includes orange and lemon blossom, watermelon, and mint leaves.

Available at Sephora and
Love your micellar water but find it a pain to travel with? Then you will appreciate:

The cloths are alcohol free, soap free and super soft so extremely gentle on even the most sensitive skin.
