Dr. Sante Micellar Water

Dr. Sante Micellar Water Micellar water is a popular skincare product that first gained momentum in France. This is a multi-purpose product able to replace a make-up remover, a cleanser, and a toner. And what makes it even greater, it doesn’t require rinsing! Isn’t it cool? Today almost all beauty brands offer consumers at least one kind of micellar water. Dr. Sante is not an exception: it’s got micellar water in its Cucumber Balance Control line.

There are different kinds of make-up removers, including wet wipes, oil-based products, cleansing milks and lotions, cream cleansers, foaming cleansers, etc., designed for different skin types. Each of them has its pros and cons. Soap-based or alcohol-based cleansers might leave the skin feeling dry and tight. Oil-based products sometimes clog pores. Some lotions and creams leave a sticky feeling on the skin. Enter: micellar water, a magical product that gently removes make-up without leaving your skin dry, oily or sticky.

Micellar water is made up of tiny cleansing particles suspended in soft water. These tiny particles are called micelles, hence the term “micellar water”. Micelles are microscopic oil molecules consisting of a hydrophilic head and hydrophobic tail. They attach to dirt, grime, excess sebum and make-up, and help to get rid of the bad stuff without stripping your skin of its natural oils and vital moisture.

The properties of a particular brand of micellar water depend on the concentration of micelles. Good micellar water contains enough micelles to easily remove dirt and make-up, but not too many so that it doesn’t leave the skin feeling sticky. Micelles are so tiny that micellar water looks absolutely clear, just like regular water, unless it is infused with herbal extracts or other natural ingredients for an additional effect.

Micellar water is so much more than just an effective cleanser. Before becoming a mass-produced beauty product, it was used to take care of the skin suffering from dermatological problems (acne, eczema, etc.). That’s why micellar water is perfect for sensitive and allergy-prone skin because it is hypoallergenic and doesn’t irritate the skin. This is a very gentle product that can be used to remove eye make-up.

Of course, nothing is perfect, and micellar water does have some drawbacks. For example, it isn’t always able to remove waterproof make-up such as BB cream or waterproof mascara. In this case, you’ll need to use a special make-up remover first. For instance, BB cream can be removed with special wipes or hydrophilic oil. Micellar water will come in handy if there’s any make-up residue left. Besides, it isn’t suitable for deep cleansing. Even if you use micellar water regularly, this doesn’t mean that you should give up on facial scrubs, peelings or cleansing masks once or twice a week.

As we’ve already mentioned above, most beauty brands produce micellar water because of its high popularity. There are products to suit any taste and budget. If you’ve never tried micellar water before, we suggest that you start with something affordable. For example, Ukrainian brand Dr. Santee offers micellar water in its Cucumber Balance Control line.
