THE HISTORY OF MICELLAR WATER

When it was first developed in France, micellar water was designed as a way to avoid using their notoriously hard water supply.

Hard water has a high mineral content of calcium and magnesium. It can dry out skin, block pores, and upset your skin’s delicate balance, leading to redness, blotchiness, eczema and acne.

WHAT IS MICELLAR WATER?

While micellar water might look and feel just like regular water, it actually contains millions of molecules, called micelles. Micelles are microscopic oil molecules that draw and trap dirt, makeup, and excess sebum.

When you apply micellar water to a cotton pad, the micelles act like a magnet. They perform a triple function in a single wipe:

  1. Clinging to the cotton pad
  2. Collecting and removing all the pollutants and impurities from your skin
  3. Replacing impurities with purified water and added hydrants

THE VERDICT

Nivea Perfect & Radiant Micellar 3-in-1 cleansing water is alcohol-free and contains great hydrating agents: glycerin, castor oil, vitamin E and panthenol.

It packs a punch and removes waterproof makeup in a flash but at the same time is very gentle on the skin because it does not contain any alcohol and does not dry out my skin or sting my eyes. There are many the  brands that have micellar waters on the market but not all micellar waters are created equal what makes each brand’s different is added ingredients. Nivea’s one is a goodie since they decided to add hydrating agents like vitamin E. Also a real crowd pleaser is the price tag it is good value for money, going R100 for 400ml. You may also be wondering how this fairs against the famous Bioderma Sensibio H2O and to be honest micellar water is micellar water this one just happens to be more affordable.
