NEW from LA ROCHE-POSAY – Micellar Water

We’ve been using micellar water to remove makeup and cleanse our skin for many years now. When we first discovered it not many people were even aware of such a product except for other makeup artists and those in the cosmetic industry.

Micellar has actually been around for a 100 years, most notably in Europe. In fact it was created in France due to their harsh water supply. It’s now starting to gain popularity and rave reviews here in North America. And for good reason. It’s awesome.

For anyone who hasn’t heard about it or used a micellar water yet, well, whatta ya waiting for? You really need to try one, we highly recommend it to everyone. People unfamiliar with micellar always say the micellar water looks like regular ol’ tap water! If I had a dolla for everytime I’ve heard that….

But be assured it is definitely not tap water. It’s more like a magic water in the bottles. It’s made up of micelles which are tiny oil molecules suspended in soft water. These micelles are like a magnet that attracts dirt, oils, grime, makeup.  It draws out all of your impurities without drying your skin instead leaving it perfectly cleansed, toned, hydrated and glowing. Whereas other cleansers can strip your skin and leave harsh chemicals behind. 

La Roche-Posay recently released three brand new Micellar Waters to their skincare lineup. What makes these new Micellar’s stand apart from others is the fact that they are formulated specifically to suit different skin tones. When it comes to skin care, it is not one size fits all.  Specific skin types have different needs and require different skin care products. 

La Roche-Posay’s three new Micellar Waters are suited for:

  • Reactive Skin
  • Sensitive Skin
  • Oily Skin

We have both been using La Roche-Posay’s Sensitive Skin Micellar and absolutely love it. It is very gentle and doesn’t dry out your skin at all. The formula leaves your skin looking clean and refreshed. We would definitely recommend the Sensitive Skin Micellar to those who have previously tried a Micellar Water and found it too harsh. Since this one is suited specifically for sensitive skin types, it will work with your skin, not against it. 

Have you tried Micellar Waters before? Let us know!
