Micellar waters have been all the rage in the beauty industry for a few years now. Ever since Bioderma released its micellar water, several other brands have come up with their own versions of the micellar water.
So what exactly is micellar water?
According to dermatologists, Micellar water is basically water that consists of molecules known as micelles which attracts dirt and oils helping to cleanse the skin while being extra gentle. It is therefore a great alternative for a foaming face wash which can be pretty harsh and drying to the skin. Micellar waters need no rinsing and generally have hydrating properties in them.
I personally love micellar waters especially on lazy days when I don’t want to go through the whole CTM routine and they also come really handy while travelling.
Jumping on to the bandwagon, Maybelline and Loreal have come up with their own Micellar waters as well and these are now available here in India. And since both of these are my all time favourite drugstore brands, I had to give them a go. So in today’s post I will be doing a review and comparison of both these micellar waters.
