VIDEO: What you need to know about micellar water

And why you need to add it to your daily routine

Micellar Cleansing Water is one of the most popular cleansers and makeup removers used by makeup artists around the world because of its effectiveness in removing makeup, lifting dirt and cleansing your skin in almost a single swipe.

Made up of tiny micelles, this lightweight solution can be used to cleanse and remove makeup any time of the day, and best of all, you don’t need water to wash your face afterwards. The result? Clean, fresh skin that doesn’t feel tight or greasy.

Garnier’s pink-capped Micellar Cleansing Water is one of the most popular beauty buys, and now the brand has just launched two new variants. There’s Garnier Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water, which is great for  skin prone to imperfections, and Micellar Cleansing Water for Combination to Oily Skin, a formulation that will help reduce shine and excess oil.

To use, simply soak a cotton pad with the formula, gently wipe away makeup on your face, eyes and lips. Within a few swipes, your skin will be clean, refreshed and soothed.
