Micellar Water ... You Should Be Using It!

Ciao bella,

Popular for decades in France, Micellar Water was developed because the Parisian water was considered to be harsh on the skin. The negative effects on the skin included dryness and blemishes. Skin experts got together and voila ... Micellar Water was formulated!

Use by Holding and Pressing with a cotton pad into skin ... do not rub or scrub.

Micellar Water is a system of 'micelles," which are tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules suspended in soft water. The "micelles" react to picking up oil, dirt, and impurities in the skin without leaving your face dry. Also moisturizing!

You can find Micellar Water now here in USA just about everywhere. It has been a remarkable discovery in the facial cleansing industry. Integrating a unique technology that is by far steps of progress in the Beauty world.

Micellar Water is kind to all skin types. Pick out the one for your particular skin type. My experience using Micellar Water is that I'll use it to only remove face makeup after Iíve already removed my eye makeup (mascara, eyeliner, and shadow) with a Gentle Eye make-up remover. Press on, hold MW, and do not rub. Then I cleanse my skin with a mild cleanser. Patting dry. Naturally, applying my eye cream, serum and, moisturizer.

I find for myself that not all Micellar Waters remove mascara, especially waterproof. I also feel that the work of a cotton pad just doesnít thoroughly cleanse. One exception is if it's one of those late party nights and that's all you have time for, it'll have to do!

Also for a busy morning to cut down my routine I'll use only Micellar Water to cleanse. You can also fi nd towelettes for travel to make your trip easier!

Happy Cleansing from me to you my Glamazons!

Buona Giornata and God Bless the USA!
