What is micellar water and does it really work?

This week our lovely Briony has been using the Comfort Zone micellar water as part of her daily skincare routine.

She's been chatting about it in The Barn, so we thought we'd ask her what the deal is... what is micellar water and how does it work?

Micellar water is a multi-active water for cleansing the face, eyes and lips in one go.

Designed to be wiped away with a cotton pad rather than rinsed off, micellar water is made up of cleansing micelle particles suspended in soft water. These tiny oil particles draw makeup (including waterproof mascara), sebum and impurities from the skin without the need for harsh chemicals.

Briony said: "I struggle with traditional eye makeup removers; they're either too harsh and make my eyes feel sensitive, or they leave an oily film.

"Comfort Zone micellar water isn't specifically aimed at sensitive skin but it's worked really well for me. It removed all makeup (without the need to rinse) and left my skin feeling really fresh and super hydrated!"

"I'd never used a micellar product before but I would definitely recommend this one!" added Briony.

We know that trying to keep up with trends in skincare can be challenging. From exfoliating to cleansing to toning and moisturising; it can be hard to know what you’re supposed to be doing and when. However with micellar water proving a firm favourite with supermodels and Briony, it might just be the next thing we add to our routine!

Comfort Zone's Micellar Water is available from The Barn, priced at £24.
