The monsoon is on its full force.So are those pesky skin problems.There is a lot of oil ,grime and pollution in the environment,which gets accumulated on our skin daily.Our hectic lifestyle does not allow us to follow a long skin care routine.So here I have a new skincare product in the market.As soon as Garnier India launched their Micellar water I was thrilled to try it out myself.Let us first know what is micellar water?
What is a Micellar Water?
Micellar Water consists of small particles known as micelles which have a property of attracting oil,dirt and grime.These clean the skin from within and you need not rinse your face after using them.They are so gentle on the skin that they don’t cause any irritation or redness.This makes it suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.Micellar water has been available in India since a long time.Some brands like Bioderma,La Roche-Posay,L’oreal,Maybelline have them.
I am using the newly launched Garnier micellar water which comes in two variants
- Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Cleansing Water
- Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing WaterThe Micellar Cleansing water is suggested for milder makeup like base foundation,concealer etc.The oil infused cleansing water is recommended for stubborn makeup like mascara,eyeliner,eyeshadow etc.Both the variants are potent and work pretty well with every skin type.They are clinically tested and suitable for sensitive skin too.
Read on for some amazing hacks which you must try and share with your besties too.
