Basically micellar water consists of tiny oil molecules suspended in water. The oil molecules quickly adhere to and absorb dirt and make-up molecules on your skin - so you aren't rubbing the dirt around on your face like you do with most cleansers, it gets trapped in the molecule and wiped away.
Of course there are lots of different cleansing waters available but if you're looking for one that works great and doesn't cost the earth then check out:
Simple Cleansing Micellar Water - 198ml - $9.99 - an effective yet gentle cleanser made with triple purified water and containing a blend of vitamin B3 & C and other skin-loving ingredients that thoroughly cleanses skin and instantly hydrates with no residue left behind.
You basically use it like you would a toner - just apply a generous amount to a cotton pad and wipe it around the face and eyes - no need to rinse - just enjoy your beautifully clean and hydrated skin!
Contains no artificial perfume, dyes or harsh chemicals so there's less chance it will piss off your skin too.
Available at drugstores across Canada.
