Question from Claire

With miscellar water being all the rage and several drugstore brands having their own version of the 'wonder water', Im curious to know whether or not it makes a major difference to one's skincare routine? Does cleansing with a miscellar water followed by a mild cleanser cause less damage to one's skin than say a scrub followed by a cleanser?

Answer

Hi and thank you for your question on a subject that is rapidly gaining popularity.

Micellar cleansers are designed to perform as waterless make-up removers for those who wish to quickly remove make-up with minimal effort. (Great for traveling and late nights!). They are composed of fatty acid esters which trap dirt and make-up for easy wiping away.

I am not sure that they have a great penetration into the pores, however, and if you have an oily skin type they probably won’t feel effective. I would reserve them for traveling if you have a drier skin type and continue to use your deep cleansing routine whenever possible rather.
