Micellar Water
14

PumpkinSpicedTea · 23/09/2022 07:56

I've started using Micellar Water in the evening before bed and really like it. However when I put on my moisturiser (Nivea blue pot) afterwards it just sits on top and doesn't really sink in. I'm guessing it's the residue from the water but any tips?

Didn't even think of that @SnarkyBag ๐Ÿ˜„ I wasn't sure if it was important not to wash the residue off ๐Ÿ˜‚

Micellar water is a make up remover rather than a cleanser so yes, you need to cleanse afterwards.

I use it to take off my make up, so then I cleanse (wash off cleanser) afterwards. Iโ€™ve bought loads of them at different price points and I really rate the Garnier one with the pink cap, always on offer somewhere.

Echoing all previous responses. I use it to take makeup off first and then use a hot cloth cleanser afterwards. I'm using Superdrug B Micellar Water at the moment but will get the pink top Garnier next as I prefer that. Then follow with Lacura Hot Cloth cleanser. I don't use it to remove eye make up, though, as my eyes are quite sensitive so I have to use a dedicated eye make up remover (Clinique take The day off).

The only time I use it on its own is either first thing in the morning or during the day as a freshen up if I'm not wearing any make up, always followed by a splash of water.

Ah -- this thread explains what I was doing wrong. I was using it like cleanser and not washing it off. Might explain why it dried my skin out so badly that I looked like I had elephant hide under my eyes....

Iโ€™ve used bioderma for years and not rinsed it off, it doesnโ€™t cause issues, but it is expensive!

Not all micellar waters are made equal.... the bioderma one is the only one that hasn't made my skin go odd in some way. I use it either as part of a double cleanse - so it would be washed off with something else after - or on its own to refresh my skin during the day especially in the heat.

I've used the Simple Micellar Water and that also seems to leave a residue on the skin - I also double or triple cleanse which gets rid of it.
