Remember back to a few years ago when micellar waters were just launching in the UK and we were all going crazy for Bioderma? These days it's now a staple in my skincare routine and thankfully the high street has caught on, making some great formulas which are not only cheaper but also easier to get hold off without having to cross the Channel. Nivea recently invited some bloggers to try out their new 3 in 1 micellar cleansing water and you can see their thoughts in the video below:
The other day I was reading an article about how cleansing is the most important step in our skincare routine and the great thing about micelllar waters is that they remove all traces of make up without irritating or inflamming the skin. Apparently it's all to do with the formation of the micellar particles - one end essentially acts like a magnet lifting away dirt and oil, whilst the other remains firmly attached to the cotton pad, thus leaving behind no residue on the skin.
Nivea's 3 in 1 micellar cleansing water also contains Provitamin B5 and natural grape seed oil to help to retain moisture and reduce that dry tight sensation you sometimes get after cleansing. I like to use mine as a first cleanse, dissolving away any heavy eye make up but because of the watery formula, it works really well as a make up corrector too, especially if I've been too heavy handed with eyeliner or need to clear up any mascara smudges before leaving the house.
Are you also a fan of micellar waters? Have you tried the new Nivea offering?
