Peek inside the cabinets of models, celebrities, and makeup artists (or, really, anyone you meet with flawless skin who just happens to speak with a French accent), and there’s a very good chance that you’ll see a bottle of micellar cleansing water. Long popular in France, this skin-care product that looks and feels just like regular water, is finally picking up worldwide. It has the ability to remove makeup, cleanse, and tone, with just a few light swipes of a cotton pad. With this cleansing goodness, even the toughest waterproof makeup, disappears cleanly off the skin with zero irritation. All micellar cleansing waters contain zero alcohol, and are comprised of only dirt-loving micelle molecules that attach to makeup and debris to break it down even further. And we’ve found six that we love a little extra.
