I’ve talked about the science behind how the ingredients in micellar water work before, but I haven’t talked much about the practicalities of micellar water before. This video is a guide to micellar water, and it covers a lot of common questions about micellar water, including:

  • The importance of cleansing
  • What is micellar water?
  • Is micellar water just soapy water?
  • What’s good about micellar water?
  • What’s bad about micellar water?
  • What to look for in a micellar water
  • Do you need to rinse micellar water?

This video is sponsored by Bioderma, who invented micellar water – one bottle of their micellar water is sold every 3 seconds! As always, these are my honest opinions of the brand and products.

My favourite micellar waters, as mentioned in the video:

  • Bioderma Hydrabio H2O Micelle Solution: Very similar to their classic Sensibio H2O, but with added ingredients targeting dehydrated skin (glycerin, niacinamide, apple seed extract). It does have a light fragrance, which is missing in the Sensibio.
  • Simple Micellar Water: A cheaper micellar water that has niacinamide and a low pH.

  1. So informative, thanks for that! I like micellar water to go in after cleansing and pick up any eye makeup my oil cleanser has missed. Ive always wondered what the difference is in the different brands is, do they add/subtract ingredients within the micellar water?

  2. I’ve always admired your presentation when it comes to explaining things in detail. They’re easy to understand and for this I thank you!
    As for me, micellar water is great for removing makeup and all but I prefer using it in the morning then washing my face at night.
