I have been using Micellar water for my makeup removal for more than a year now, and I have to say that this was the smartest move from the makeup removing wipes. But around the same time I also removed using cotton pads.
In this post, I will share how I am efficiently using the micellar water in my daily skin care routine to remove makeup and keep my skin clean without a lot of waste.
The primary reason of using the micellar water was to stop wasting all those wipes that I have been using for years, while I loved my Neutrogena makeup wipes, I just felt really guilty using them everyday.
And let me tell you, I went through a lot. I still keep the reusable wipe box that the brand offers, but for something else.

What is the Benefits of using Micellar Water?
Ever since I started using micellar water, I have stuck to Garnier, so I will share my experience with that product. There are a lot of brands in the market, but its important to stick with something that is cost effective since this is a fluid and you might be using it everyday.
Is Micellar Water not good for you?
Micellar water, because of more water contents are gentle on your skin compared to makeup wipes. Also, since its more fluid, you can customize how much you use on your skin.
They also come with other benefits like hydration, mattifying, glow. So, rather than using harsh chemicals to wipe your makeup, you can use micellar water that will also nourish your skin while doing so. I have been using the Garnier Brightening Micellar water which also provides glow. This is something that I always strive for because my skin is naturally oily.
I have not felt any tingle or sensation compared to using makeup wipes sometimes, if I just got an exfoliation or facial before. Not sure what could be the reason, but with micellar water it just feels like using water.
