Regular soap sometimes feels like it’s a thing of the past. Micellar cleansers are the latest and hottest way to clean your face. Micelles are molecules in the cleansers that eat up fatty acids like makeup, dust and anything else on the skin. We tried four top micellar products all with different pros to see who should use which one.
Quick & Easy – Marcelle 3 In 1 Micellar Solution
The best part about cleaning your face with a micellar solution is how easy it is. Marcelle has made it as easy as you can get with their pump system. Just apply it onto your cotton pad with a couple of pumps and wipe your face clean. It removes your makeup and gets your face clean in seconds.
Specialized – L’Oreal Paris Sublime Soft Micellar Gelee Eye Makeup Remover
While other micellar cleaners remove all of your makeup, this one is specialized to only remove eye makeup. This is a gel based remover that is thicker than other micellar products. It’s just as easy though. Less is more with this cleaner as you want to use a little to remove any mascara you have. It’s tougher to remove waterproof makeup, but it still does the trick.
Au Naturale – Simple Cleansing Micellar Water
If you want something simple and gentle, but still effective this is the cleaner for you. This version of micellar water is easy to use. It’s water based, so you should be careful when you are putting it on the cotton pad, but otherwise it’s so easy to use! You just wipe away your makeup, no rinsing required. This version is great because it has no dyes or perfumes and nothing that can irritate your skin.
Most Moisturizing – Vichy Purete Thermale Beautifying Cleansing Micellar Oil
This micellar cleaner is the most different from the rest. Unlike the others this oil based cleaner requires you to rinse your face afterwards. It feels silly, but after all of these other no rinse cleanser, this one actually felt like hard work. Unlike the rest, this one leaves your skin feeling much more moisturized than the rest. It leaves your face feeling soft and smooth.
