Before I became interested in skincare, makeup removing looked like a foundation soaked makeup wipe that left grease and oil residue on my face. Nowadays, I would not let a makeup wipe within a 10 foot radius of my face.
I have tried many different cleansers, wipes, and balms, but nothing removes makeup as easily and gently as micellar water. Here are my top picks for the best micellar waters to remove your makeup!
The Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is what truly began my cleansing water journey. It’s gentle on my face and easily takes off eye makeup with a few swipes. It never makes my eyes sting and does not cause any redness on my face which was a constant issue I had when using makeup wipes. And, of course the best part –– you can get it at your local drugstore. Using this makeup remover at the end of the day makes me feel cleansed and new again. I can confidently wake up knowing my skin had the chance to breathe.
The Aesthetic Water
When Glossier announced the release of their Milky Oil Makeup Remover, I was eager to get my hands on it. I instantly placed an order. This micellar water instantly dissolves makeup and is extremely gentle. An added bonus is that the product is vegan and cruelty free! Using this product makes me feel straight out of Pinterest. Not only does it do wonders for my skin –– but it also does wonders for my glamorous bathroom aesthetic.
The Boujee Buy
The Cleansing Micellar Water by La Mer, is the Ferrari of micellar waters. Using this product makes me feel like I’m removing my makeup at The Ritz Hotel after attending a charity gala. It takes off makeup just as well as the other products listed, but I think my skin glistens just slightly more if only because it makes me feel fancy.
This product both cleans and tones your skin. It’s a natural product by Burt’s Bees, which is a brand I always trust. The brand is dermatologist tested, does no animal testing, and their ingredients are natural. For an added bonus, the bottle is recyclable. This product makes me feel fresh and just as all natural as the ingredients. I follow it up with moisturizer and my skin feels luminous and youthful. You can pick it up at your local drugstore.
This Bioderma Sensibio H20 Micellar Water is a perfect makeup remover for sensitive skin. This is an ideal purchase if you have any redness or texture on your skin. It has no fragrance and is completely paraben-free and oil-free. It’s a lighter cleanser but is just as effective in rinsing off makeup after a long night out. It’s soothing and gentle on irritated skin. It’s an ideal cleanser, especially for the winter months when my skin is drier and my cheeks start getting red!
