It's hard having sensitive skin. Trust us, we know. Adapting an effective skincare routine takes time and effort and trial and error - and going through the motions can take a long time.
You've heard of micellar water - the cult cleansing product and makeup artist staple - but did you know that it was originally formulated for sensitive skin? Whilst the cleansing water can be used on all skin types, it's particularly suitable for sensitive skin for a number of reasons.
Let's discover how.
It's un-perfumed. Some fragrances, be it from synthetic perfumes or natural plant extracts, can irritate sensitive skin. As micellar water is non-perfumed, this common addition isn't an issue. Micellar water is also formulated without soap or alcohol, two ingredients that can also cause irritation for sensitive skin.
There's no need for rinsing with water when you use micellar water which, again, is good news for those of us with sensitive skin. Hard water can be very harsh on skin but when using micellar water you just apply to a cotton pad, wipe and go! Your skin is cleansed, refreshed and hydrated in one simple step.
Micellar water has been used by the pros for years and now beauty fans and people who are serious about their skincare routine are jumping on board. An effective cleansing step doesn't have to take ages. I think you'll agree that the quicker the whole process is, the better! All the more time to perfect your makeup look by day and to relax at night.
While perfect for sensitive skin, Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water is also suitable for all skin types; it's quick, it's easy to use and it truly is effective. Makeup and impurities be gone! Oh, it's purse friendly too - a 400ml bottle which gives 200 uses* - costs RRP €7.49.
