Micellar Water

Micellar Water...what is it? IMG_0158 I have been so excited about sharing this product.  The Pink Duchess isn't becoming a beauty blog.  However, because I am a girlie girl and an avid makeup wearer, I enjoy sharing products I like.  Keep in mind, no one is paying me to endorse any of the products I talk about. So back to my new favorite product.  As I was saying, I like wearing makeup, but there are days or nights when I really don't want to do the several steps necessary to remove my makeup. Last  Sunday I was clearing out my email and came across a post about a hundred year old French cleansing secret that is finally getting some much needed attention here in the US.  MICELLAR WATER. When  I read the post, I was a little skeptical, but excited.  I am all for anything that will cut my cleansing process down, but won't harm my skin.  I have sensitive skin and have spent a lot of money in the past on facial products [i.e. blemish treatments, cleansers, masks, toners and moisturizers].  So when I read about this, I was eager to give it a try.  I did a little more research and discovered Micellar Water is a water composed of micelles.  Micelles are tiny oil molecules suspended in soft water.  The little molecules attract dirt and all the other grime and junk on your skin and draws them out without drying out your skin.  An added bonus, you don't have to rinse after applying it. So how am I using it?  I use it as a cleanser, in the morning and right before bed.  After swiping it over my face with a cotton pad, I apply a little coconut oil.  If I have a monthly breakout, I'll apply a little zit cream and then my coconut oil moisturizer and I'm done.  Some women, use it as a cleanser and moisturizer.  I haven't tried that yet. I also found it does an amazing job removing a full face of makeup.  Now I did notice that when I have a full face of makeup, it took more than one cotton pad, but that still beat my old regime which was, coconut oil and a hot damp towel as the remover, a toner, blemish cream and moisturizer.   I've noticed my skin feels a little softer in the mornings. There are several brands available.  However, I didn't want to try an expensive brand if it didn't work.  Although, most stores will do a refund on most beauty products.  The post I read, listed several options, some of which were available at Target.  I popped over to Target in search of a bottle of this miracle cleanser.  My local Target had brands ranging from $6.99 to $47.00.  I opted to  try SIMPLE's version [$6.99]. IMG_0161 I really would like to try Bioderma, Guerlain, Dior and La Roche-Posay.  Not because they're more, but because they're French.  Hey, it only makes sense to try it the French way.
