Tremendous!!! La Roche-Posay – a brand I personally ADORE!!!! – has just come out with a GEL version of Micellar Water. I schedule posts so actually this is a few days earlier…. I want to post everything at once (I have so many drafts!) but I am moving soon and just super overwhelmed! I am, however, still trying to be timely! 🙂
Now I knooooow that Micellar Waters are THE THING all of a sudden. When I travelled to Paris as a sixteen year-old I thought the magical H2Os were the cat’s meow (I’m 37 now) – there wasn’t a pharmacy that didn’t have several things of the ilk, and since every Parisian woman seemed to have immaculate skin, I was ever-curious about their regimes. Especially as a teen!
Variations have been finding their way to the backstages of Runways for moons…and nothing has changed…save for the massive, current-day attention.
But I don’t know…
I HAVE some cleansing waters, including baby cleansing waters just for my face! But I feel like micellar waters aren’t the ideal consistency somehow – I feel like I waste too much in the process, including over absorption into cotton.
Do I sound crazy?
I use water from the tap…and I try not to let it run with total abandon – even if I’m not paying for it at a store, it’s pretty darn precious. But then there’s that little bottle of micellar miraculousness that I can’t use without feeling like too much is going down the same drain….along with a few dollars.
Enter the GEL. I love that La Roche-Posay has a gel. The thicker consistency means that more of it is going to stay on my face, or a cotton pad, or whatever I might use to cleanse – I was never a huge fan of makeup removers for the same reason. So much absorbed and I’d have to re-drench to get enough of it!
So a gel, which likely has a better chance of applying properly the first time makes me a very happy girl. 😀
