LIKE the rest of the beauty world, I am obsessed with micellar water.
I was a bit late to the game and only started using them last year – but better late than never, I say! The French-export makeup cleansing removers are now one of my all-time favorite beauty products and I believe a must-have for every woman. And because I’ve been so obsessed with them, I’ve actually found other ways to use them as well:
1. On-the-go hand wash. No time to wash your hands after testing products at the makeup counter? Or need to wash your hands before eating? Thanks to it’s no-rinse formula, micellar water would be perfect! I mean, it is a cleaner for your face… so why not for your hands too? Squirt a drop into your hands and rub.
2. Clean your makeup brushes. You know how they say to clean your makeup brushes by adding some baby shampoo in water? Well, why not use micellar water? Also great for on-the-spot brush cleaning: Drop some micellar water in a paper towel and swirl your makeup brush on top of it to get rid of the product.
3. Use to remove perfume. Tried out a perfume at the counter that turned nasty? Put some miceallar water on a cotton pad or tissue and rub it off! (Definitely not one of these perfumes, right?) Also useful if you applied a little too much perfume – simply remove some of it. (I’m assuming it can remove other stenches, too.)
