First off, what is a Micelle Solution cleanser, you ask?
It’s SUPER GENTLE water-like solution that requires no-rinsing afterwards that effectively removes makeup & dirt from your face. Some people use it as a cleanser, but I use it specifically as a makeup remover. Because of its gentle properties, it’s great for all skin types and leaves your skin refreshed, clean and soft.
There’s quite a few brands out in the market, but the one that’s gaining fast popularity is the Bioderma Sensibio H20:
This product is soap-free and keeps your skin balanced. It’s specifically formulated for sensitive, normal to dry skin and gives you a really soothing feeling while you’re cleansing.
I don’t think it’s scented – so if you’re sensitive to scents, this is great for you.
The first time I used this, my skin felt super soft and toner and moisturizer felt more absorbant on my skin.
The only downside is that it’s pretty pricey. I picked mine up at Shopper drug mart for $22 for 250mL. I wish I got the 500mL though ($30).
How to use:
(It’s not really HOW TO USE, but this is how I use it)
- Soak a cotton ball/pad with the solution, wipe it all over your face until there’s no makeup left.
- Apply cleanser, massage your face with it, rinse.
- Pat your face dry.
- Apply toner with a cotton ball/pad
- Apply moisturizer
If you’re in the market looking for a cleanser or a makeup remover, pick one of these guys up and you won’t regret it! :)
