What is micellar water?

Micellar water is prepared using micellar technology, which consists of tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules suspended in soft water. These molecules act as a magnetic trap for oil, traces of makeup and pollution particles. It may appear just like water, but when you touch it you'll feel that it has a completely different texture.

Benefits of using micellar water

  • The molecules present in the water attract environmental aggressors which help in leaving the skin all clean & clear.
  • It is very gentle in comparison with other makeup removers and does not strip the natural oils and proteins from your skin.
  • Since it essentially contains water, it is suitable for all skin types.
  • It acts as a barrier between the skin and natural impurities.
  • It also contains brightening agents, which help in improving the texture of the skin.
  • It is proven to remove 99% of your makeup and requires no rinsing of the face.
  • It is a multipurpose product that works as a makeup remover, facial wash and a moisturiser all-in-one bottle.

How to use

Take a cotton pad and pour some micellar water on it. Use it to wipe off all the makeup, dirt and grease from your face.

How to pick the right one 

Choose micellar water that is infused with necessary vitamins like the Pond's Vitamin Micellar Water. These vitamins contain antioxidants and collagen that help in protecting the skin from daily damage. Their range of micellar water comes in three different variants - D-Toxx Charcoal variant for oily skin; if you have dry skin opt for Hydrating Aloe and if you have normal skin type then try the Brightening Rose variant.
