Getting the most from your Micellar Water

Micellar cleansing water has completely changed my skincare routine and I wouldn't be without it now so I thought I'd compile a few tips for getting the most out of yours. Some may seem obvious, others not so much and if you have any tips yourself I'd love to know...

  • Use micellar water as a make up remover or as part of a second cleanse. If I'm being really lazy then I'll just soak some cotton pads with my micellar water, splash some water then slap on some moisturiser. Other times I'll do a full cleanse followed up by some of this. 
  • If you've had a heavy night, pop your micellar water in the fridge before you go to bed. The next morning soak two cotton pads and place over your eyes/face for an instant refresh. Also works for crying fits, emotional breakdowns, soppy movies etc. 
  • Try and always give your face a splash of water after using a micellar water, as much as it feels like cleansing your face with just water, it still contains chemicals to slice through any dirt on your skin, it's not pure and it's why it sometimes feels like there is a slight film on your skin. 
  • I always keep a travel bottle to hand for wiping away swatches after a blog photo session. It's not necessary but it find it easier having one for my face and one for my swatches, plus the Garnier bottles are usually £1 in Boots. Better than scrubbing your arm with a brush or facewipe. 

Do you always keep a bottle of micellar water to hand? What are your top tips?



  1. I've never spotted them for £1 in Boots, I always end up paying £3.99 for them 😣 I'll have to look harder.

    1. Every now and then the little ones are just £1 usually when they do the skincare events. xx

  2. I love the idea of popping it into the fridge to soothe skin a little, I'll have to try that! x
