I do like Micellar waters, but not for removing makeup. I don’t think it cleanses the face of all traces of makeup. It is very important to remove as much makeup, dirt and oil off your skin as possible.
I use it to refresh the skin in the morning, not all of the time. But have you every woken up and your face looks a bit beat or too dewy or a little oily? This cleanser can “wake up” the face and remove any of the dewiness or slight oil on your skin.
I don’t think you need to spend a lot of money on cleansers, especially these type of cleansers. There isn’t a lot to them, as far as skin care ingredients go and they don’t stay on the face long enough in most cases to do anything at all, but slightly cleanse the face.
So with that being said, which one of these would you choose?
Purity Made Simple Micellar Cleansing Water or Simple Micellar Water
I like them both. I like both brands.
But I can’t tell a difference between either of them. The Philosophy Purity Made Simple Micellar Cleansing Water is $22.00 for 6.7 oz and Unscented Simple Micellar Cleansing Water – 6.7oz for $4.69 and it doesn’t have scent and it has niacinamide. Bonus.
Yes, you need to rinse of the micellar water. I know a lot of people don’t but this product contains a cleansing agent like soap. Do you normally leave soap on your face without rinsing it off?
Think of your car when you wash it, you rinse the soap off as well as you can right. Or the detergent tends to dull the paint and dirt tends to cling to the soap residue. Sort of the same with your face.
So higher end or drugstore?
Save your money for things like a peel. Great serum or even going for a facial.
