Micellar Water: The What, When and Why?

InstaNatural Micellar Water: The What, When and Why


We live in an age where time is of the essence – breakfast is always on the go, multitasking is a required skill, and routine appointments clog up our schedules. Finding free time isn’t always easy, and neither is finding a great skin care routine that works for us instead of against us.

Thankfully, the recently popular Micellar Water has emerged as a great solution to those struggles. However, there are a lot of questions around this product. If you happen to be curious as to what the Micellar Water craze is all about, don’t worry, I’m here to tell you all about it!

What is Micellar Water?

Simply put, Micellar Water is a unique solution formulated with tiny micelles (oil cleansing molecules) that are attracted to dirt and oil. We like to think of it as the answer to every girl’s dream – a one-step cleanser, makeup remover and toner. It’s also designed to be rinse free, which makes it great for the gym, travel, or in between school and soccer practice. 

When and How Do I Use It?
In most cases, Micellar Water can replace your traditional cleanser, and using it is pretty easy. Simply saturate two cotton rounds and swipe the solution across your face in gentle, upward motions. If you’re wearing stubborn or waterproof eye makeup, we recommend saturating fresh cotton rounds and hold over closed eyes for a few seconds, then gently sweep down and out.

We recommend using Micellar Water both morning and night, just as you would with your normal cleanser. If you have a challenging skin concern, you can follow your evening cleanse with a more targeted treatment cleanser, such as a Glycolic or Acne Cleanser, but it isn’t required.

Aside from its normal functions, Micellar Water has a plethora of additional uses. You can use it simply as a toner to balance the skin’s pH, to remove sweat and oil after the gym, and even on a cotton swab to clean up fallout from eye makeup.

Why is InstaNatural’s Micellar Water Important?
With our dedication to clean formulas that use natural and organic ingredients, we’ve gone to extra mile to remove some of the common ingredients found in other Micellar Waters. We’ve avoided the use of PEGs, silicones, propylene glycol, phenoxyethanol, sodium benzoate and artificial fragrances. Instead, we focus on using botanical extracts such as Lavender, Cucumber, and Calendula to soothe and nourish the skin – along with a sugar based emulsifier – to provide a formula that is gentle, safe and effective.

As with all skin care, we know you want solutions that offer healthy formulas that actually work. We’ve strived to create that, and we think the addition of Micellar Water will not only streamline your routine, but give you much more time in your day.
