Micellar water, there’s nothing quite like it for removing makeup. But what makes it so powerful? The answer lies with micelle molecules and a few heavy hitting tensioactive powers. Simply put? While micelles attract greasy impurities such as sebum and makeup, they also draw out water-loving impurities such as sweat. Nothing, it seems, can stand in their way. Better yet, when using a micellar water, there’s no need to scrub away with your cotton wool because micelles act like little magnets to gently draw out dirt and leave your skin looking shiny and totally clean.
