If you haven’t already tried micellar water, boy have you been missing out. We’ve been obsessed with the stuff since it started popping up everywhere on the Australian beauty scene a couple of years ago and TBH we don’t know what we did without it.
If you’re not already familiar with the benefits of this amazing cleansing water, let us fill you in (and please - go get some!). Micellar water earns its name from the tiny micelles suspended in it that essentially act as little magnets for dirt, oil and makeup. This in turn cleanses the skin without the need for harsh cleansers, scrubbing or rubbing. And now, Bioré have taken micellar water to the next level by introducing a formula specifically tailored to combat typical oily skin woes.
Bioré Charcoal Cleansing Micellar Water is not your ordinary micellar water. The formula contains Japanese micellar water technology to cleanse the skin, as well as charcoal, which works to absorb excess oil, reduce shine and mattify the complexion. It’s also dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested, pH balanced, oil-free and doesn’t clog pores – absolute musts for oily skin. Plus, there’s no need to rinse, which makes it the ultimate Holy Grail beauty buy for our inner lazy girl.
It’s ticking all our boxes, so what did the Review Crew® think?
