For gentle yet effective cleansing, meet the formula that has been used by the best makeup artists and models: the micellar water. A base French skincare classic, praised for its multi-purpose resources (cleanse, tone, refresh) and comfort of use (no face rinsing), the micellar is a genius addition to your beauty chest.

Free from both soap and alcohol, it’s the excellent option to harsh face wipes or your personal cleanser and will remove makeup with the simple sweep of a cotton pad. easily done and completed. Here are my favorites…
