Our newest product has a history that goes back more than a 100 years but has resurfaced as the ultimate multi-purpose product that's the foundation of all effortlessly chic French girl beauty rituals. It is the ultimate utilitarian skin care soldier.
Beloved by Beauty editors, top makeup artists and skin care enthusiasts as an all-in-one face wash, makeup remover and moisturizer, micellar water is the perfect gentle face cleanser and makeup remover for all skin types, especially dry, sensitive and acne-prone skin.
We are excited to welcome Micellar Cleansing Water to our family of top-quality, all-natural facial cleansers.
So, What is Micellar Water?
Micellar water is essentially a non-rinse, non-soapy cleanser that looks just like regular water. The magic is in the micells, tiny oil molecules suspended in soft water, that are essentially a magnet for dirt, grime and makeup. These micells draw out impurities without stripping skin or leaving behind harsh, irritating chemicals. The face is clean, fresh and hydrated without any greasy residue. Sounds pretty awesome, right!
Despite its current fad status, micellar water is a perfect fit for the Source Vitál line in that it abides by some of our most valued principles:
- Skin and Body care
Our micellar water is specially formulated using water purified by a triple reverse osmosis system and infused with a blend of seaweeds rich in vitamins and minerals to feed the skin, soothing cucumber extract to decrease the appearance of puffiness, and 100% pure Lavandin essential oil to calm and nourish. Our blend of seaweed, cucumber and essential oils is unlike any other micellar water on the market.
How to Use Micellar Cleansing Water
As mentioned above this cleanser can be used for a multitude of skin needs. However, we love it as an eye makeup remover and as the first step of a thorough double cleansing regimen.
- Simply dampen a cotton ball or round with the micellar water, using gentle downward motions from eye lid to lashes remove eye makeup.
- Either use the clean side of the round (depending on the amount of makeup and eye makeup you are removing) or wet another and gently swipe down the rest of the face. Your face should look and feel pretty clean at this point.
- Finish cleansing with your favorite Source Vitál cleanser depending on your skin’s unique needs.
- With the same cotton round you used last take one more go over the face to make sure you have removed all the last traces of makeup and grime.
The great thing is that you can vary this routine depending on what works best for you. It is gentle enough to use morning and night.
Source Vitál Tips
Micellar water is great to throw in your makeup bag in case you need a quick fix and perfect for traveling when you may not have the space to bring along all your favorite skin care products.
Some people love using micellar water as their primary cleanser. We think it is great for those days when you need a quick face wash. However, those with oily skin types may want to pair it with our Lemon Gel Cleanser.
Despite it being an effective eye makeup remover, micellar water is great for men too. Taking out a step to rinse makes it super-efficient, especially for those men who are just starting to get serious about taking care of their skin.
We believe cleansed skin is healthy, radiant skin. We are excited to offer Micellar Cleansing Water as another great skin care option that is sure to become a must-have for really any and all skin care protocol.
Like all of our products, Micellar Cleansing Water is hand crafted in small batches at our headquarters in Houston, Texas.
It is available in two sizes:
- Full Size: 8.39 oz. $12.95
