The Cleansing Water That Converted Me

I used to be a strictly "wash my face with a cleanser morning and night" type girl, but a little while back I began trying some cleansing waters/oils. I ran into a few duds that made me want to run back into the arms of my Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser, one of which being the Garnier Nourishing Cleansing Oil that I listed as my unfavorite of February. However, after trying that, I found the Simple Cleansing Micellar Water.

The way that I use this is to pour a little bit onto an exfoliating cotton pad and sweep it over my nose, cheeks, chin, forehead, jawline, and finally over my eyes. I use this every night before putting on my moisturizer, but I also use it if I want to remove my makeup at some point during the day. The slightly problematic thing with this is that it doesn't remove my waterproof mascara, so I have to use something else for that. But I am a big fan of The Body Shop's Camomile Waterproof Makeup Remover for that, so I don't mind much. When doing this I remove my eye makeup first, then use the cleansing water.

For a while I wasn't really sure if I liked it or not, because I was still getting a few annoying pimples here and there, like any other teenager (thanks a lot, hormones). But now that I've gone through about half the bottle, I realized that this product has helped one of my major skin problems, which is those tiny little bumps that are under the skin. It's a little hard to explain, but basically I would get groups of small bumps on my cheeks and forehead that just gave my skin an uneven texture and appearance. This problem has irked me for a while, and I've never found something that helps it until now. Using this has completely smoothed out my skin and I am so grateful.

So overall this has pretty much become my holy grail skincare item. I will 100% repurchase it, and the best part is that it's super cheap compared to some other great skincare.

Have you tried cleansing waters?


  1. This sounds like great stuff, will have to look into it, hormones do suck, I'm so spotty right now :(

    New Post out now:
    'Lush Haul//Easter Range'

  2. Never tried it but will definitely be checking it out- I love a good micellar water xx

  3. I also purchased this awhile ago, I like it, but I like the Sephora brand more because I wear a lot of eyeliner! This is a good one for gentle skin. I used to wash my face religiously, but this is really fast and good for those lazy nights :x

  4. Need to check this out since I've never tried this brand before :)

  5. This sounds really good, don't you love it when you try something new and it ends up being holy grail status?

    In terms of cleansing waters I'm a pretty religious user of Bioderma, though I've never tried any other cleansing waters so I guess I can't really compare!
