Cleansing waters as makeup remover

When it’s time to remove makeup which we slather on our faces, cleansers and toning lotions are sometimes not enough to keep face and neck clean without repeating applications. Now, there is a new way to get rid of dirt and makeup on the face thanks to the introduction of cleansing waters.

All about cleansing waters

The arrival of cleansing waters in the beauty arena has lead many to opt for a gentler and efficient way to keep skin healthy and clean. Cleansing waters remove makeup without disturbing the balance of the skin leading to a spotless and immaculate skin.

  • The secret formulation

Cleansing waters are made from micelles. In short, these are tiny cleansing molecules or agents packed in water to get the job done of cleaning the face and removing impurities without causing allergy reactions or redness. In fact, cleansing waters are often used on models’ faces. They are practical to use during fashion shows where mannequins have to frequently change clothes and makeup in a short time. Using cleansing waters helps minimise allergy reactions and redness.

  • Benefits of cleansing waters

Cleansing waters are easy to use since they are in liquid form. They are highly effective in sloughing dirt off the face with a few strokes. Instead of using soaps which may contain harsh ingredients, cleansing waters do the job in one swipe without irritating the skin or disturbing the pH balance. The ingredients in cleansing waters break down the particles on grime and dirt attached on the skin surface without irritation. Hence, you don’t need to rub your face vigorously causing unwanted skin reaction. In addition, cleansing waters refresh the face and act as a toner.


There are many brands of cleansing waters available on a commercial scale. One of the first names to develop cleansing waters formulation is Paris-based Bioderma. Its Crealine H₂0 is great at removing makeup and even waterproof makeup. La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution, Nars Makeup Removing Water and MAC Mineralized Charged Water Cleanser are also good products. Other brands worth considering include Lancôme Eau Micellaire Douceur, Caudalie Cleansing Water, and Vichy Normaderm Micellar Solution.
