Cleansing skin is one of the most important steps in a skincare routine…and the one that a lot of people flub. Regimes overseas (I live in the USA) has always captured my attention because they are often so impeccably executed. There are far more than one or two steps – which I’ve found is one too many for most – and it shows. A cleansing wipe works in a pinch but – hate to break it to you – is not necessarily getting much off your skin at night.
Cleansing waters have become more mainstream in our markets in the last two years or so (I say, hallelujah!) Most have been pretty basic in formulation – for dry skin, oily skin, maybe a waterproof remover. But until now we’ve not seen as many varieties (such as mattifying ones, for example.)
Well, Sephora decided to up the game and has released a line of four Micellar Cleansing Water & Milks each catering to a different skin type.
Rose Micellar Cleansing Milk: Smooth and silky, this cleanser is also ultra-moisturizing and Brightening.
Coconut Water Micellar Cleansing Milk: This smooth cleanser soothes and relaxes the complexion.
Green Tea Micellar Cleansing Water: This light and refreshing cleanser mattifies and fights blemishes without the use of harsh ingredients.
In a use test on 30 volunteers after the 1st use:
– 90% said that the micellar cleansing water efficiently cleanses the face and eyes
– 97% said that skin is mattified
Charcoal Micellar Cleansing Water: Purifies and detoxifies leaving skin feeling fresh.
In a use test on 32 volunteers after the 1st use:
– 91% said that the micellar cleansing water efficiently cleanses the face and eyes
