Whoever thought washing your face with just water could remove makeup and help brighten your skin?! Read below for everything you need to know about Micellar water.

The History

What’s In It?

  • Water
  • A Glycol-Helps make the makeup more soluble
  • Surfactant
  • Micelles

What even is a Micelle?

  • A ball shaped molecule made up of many surfactant molecules
  • A molecule that can absorb sebum and various oils on your skin.
  • They are positioned with the water-loving head of the molecule on the outside and oil-loving tail of the molecule positioned inwards so they are further from the water they resist.

How do I use it?

  • Use a cotton pad/ball and apply to face
