You may have noticed that micellar products have become all the rage recently, with just about every beauty brand out there getting in on the act. Decleor and Elemis are no exception and have released their own products using micellar technology (which, by the way is pronounced MEE-cellar, not MY-cellar!) so we thought we’d take a look at what they have to offer and why you should be choosing them above other, more traditional products.
What does micellar mean?
So, before we tell you what micellar products can do, you probably want to know what they are, right? Micelles are tiny particles of oil which are suspended in another liquid and attract dirt particles, then carry them efficiently away from your skin when the product is rinsed off. Because it’s oil-based, it means that your skin doesn’t get dried out, but the oil doesn’t come into direct contact with your skin either, so it doesn’t make your skin greasy. Genius, huh?!
So which products do we offer?
Here’s the low-down on all of our micellar products:
Not only does this cleaning oil make the skin feel silky smooth and super clean, it’s fun to use too! When spread all over the face it looks like a regular oil, but when you add a couple of drops of water into the situation, the product emulsifies, turning a milky white and changing slightly in consistency. This is where the oil starts to do the hard work of sweeping away the day’s grime while moisturising your face and maintaining the delicate natural balance of the upper epidermis. When rinsed off, skin feels fresh, nourished and revitalized, perfectly prepped for the next step in your skincare routine.
This micellar cleanser from Elemis is an all-natural product which is gentle enough to use on the eyes and is amazing at removing all traces of make-up. It’s infused with organic English rose water and soothing anti-oxidant rich chamomile to gently cleanse the skin, while the natural moisture barrier is maintained. This will protect your skin and reveal a clear and radiant complexion with regular use.
This micellar water from Decleor is designed as a product which can perform thre tasks in one product. As well as cleansing the face and removing daily grime, it also tones as it goes, allowing you to go without a separate toner. Finally, it also efficiently removes eye make up (even the waterproof stuff!) gently but efficiently, leaving you with a beautifully clean, comfortable and soft complexion.
