For the last couple of weeks I have tried not to use micellar water. Serious beauty people frown upon it and I want to be serious too, so I've stopped. Well, I stopped. I'm back to it now and am happy with decision, I really am.
I only discovered micellar water this year and when I introduced it, my routine was like this: I took off makeup with micellar water , then I used a cleanser (which is Nimue Cleansing Milk at the moment) and then I gave my face a last wipe with toner. This set up suited me because my face just felt and looked and was clean as a whistle that hadn't been taken out of its packet yet and blown by Captain Von Trapp.
But I have to be a grown-up with a complicated cleansing routine that takes hours, don't I? I swapped my micellar water (which was the original from trusted brand Bioderma I'll have you know) with a cleansing balm and so my long and torturous regime began. As I mentioned, it hasn't lasted long. I'm a tired gal at night and can't be messing around in the bathroom when I could be catching up on Grey's Anatomy.
So, I've re-entered micellar water to my skin care regime and I'm glad I did. Not only do I like how it's so good at removing the stubborn makeup I wear, it's great for a quick cleanse in the morning. It's not nearly as quick a fix as makeup wipes, which we never recommend here at Beaut.ie, but I think it's a fabulous first step to a double cleanse.
