FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: What's Micellar Water? Is it a better makeup remover?
Happy Friday, y'all! If you want to try something new tonight, I suggest go to BGC and check out Freezer Burn; best dessert place so far! I love that in every order, you get equal portions of cake, Ice Cream, and some other sweets! A must- try!
Before you do, here's a post to wrap up our week in beauty and it's from Golda. She asks:
What's a Micellar Water and what does it do? I heard it's a makeup remover, but how is it any better than other regular makeup removers?
Micellar Water is great and in fact, I've finally included it in my makeup routine when I want easy, rinse- free cleansing; it comes really handy when I'm swatching beauty products and need to remove them in between because it doesn't require me to go to and fro the bathroom for cleansing. Also, Micellar Water functions more than a makeup remover that's why I like it!
But what makes it special? Another interesting question is why is it invented? Let's talk about it.

Micellar Water got its name from its unique composition: it is water with suspended oil molecules that act as powerful dirt, grime, and makeup magnets, but the entire formula does not dry out or clog the skin because...water; it technically looks like water, but feels just a little different; the best way for me to describe the 'texture' of Micellar Water always is it's "moisturizing water." It is unclear whether Micellar Water originated first in France, but since French Women thrive on this product, it has become common notion that this product was invented in the said country. Why so? Apparently, water in France is pretty harsh on the skin and a lot found Micellar Water the water that their skin has been looking for.
If Micellar Water is just water, then what makes it different than Cleansing Water? The Micelles, my friend; these difference- makers make the former more powerful than the latter.
Micellar Water, to me, is the next big thing in makeup removal more than cleansing sorbets/balms because it's universally great for any skin type: it's primarily water so good for all most especially oily skin and there are oil droplets that suit dry skin. Micellar Water is not just for removing makeup - it functions as a toner and facial mist also!
Micellar Water comes in various formulas, brands, and price - just look for one that suits your needs. I'll blog about my faves (including cleansing water) in a separate blog post!
Hope you learned something new today. Have a great Friday!
