What is Micellar Water?
Micellar water gets its name from ‘micelles’, microscopic oil spheres that float in water. When you apply micellar water to your skin, the cleansing agents dissolve impurities (dirt and oil) without stripping the skin.

You can use micellar water to remove makeup, cleanse you skin, and even use as a light moisturizer.
How do you use Micellar Water?
All you need is a cotton pad! No water needed! Late night and too lazy to preform your usual skincare routine? We’ve all been there!
With micellar water, all you need to do is apply the water to the pad and gently swipe you face. No rinsing needed. You will be amazed at how clean your face gets, without that tingling or tightening effect. Plus, it is powerful enough to remove even the most stubborn makeup such as waterproof mascara and gel liners.
What are the Benefits of Micellar Water?
Micellar cleansing water uses very gentle but effective cleansing agents.
Micellar water and cotton pads together cleanse the skin by acting like a magnet, attracting and entrapping impurities without harsh rubbing or scraping.
Quick and easy to use, a micellar cleanser is a lifesaver for on-the-go beauty and late nights.
No harsh chemicals or detergents to irritate and inflame skin. Even the most troublesome complexions are left feeling soft, nourished and hydrated.

Who should use Micellar Water?
Everyone! Micellar Water works wonders for all skin types, ages, and genders. Let me give you a few examples…
Woman ~ Well it is obvious that all woman should be using Micellar water. Remove makeup, cleanses and no need to worry about how it will react with your skin! It is such a multi-purpose product that every woman needs to have!
Men ~ Do men even wash their face? Of course they do! They use shampoo when they are in the shower. *Cringe* Bioderma Hydrobio H2O is perfect for men as it also stimulates moisture making it an effortless one step system that any man can easily incorporate.
Teens ~ Teens have such delicate skin. Introducing them to harsh chemical cleansers will only set them up for future skin problems. Micellar Water is gentle, effective and easy to use making it the perfect cleanser for teens. Bioderma Sebium H2O regulates sebum quality, keeping the pores from becoming clogged and clear up the skin. Perfect for the hormal teen!
How do I use Micellar Water?
I use Bioderma Micellar Water every night to remove my makeup before I begin my skincare routine.
Bioderma Micellar Water has replaced my cleanser in the AM as it is so gentle, and my face is still fairly clean from washing it the night before that it is unnecessary for me (or anyone) to use an abrasive wash in the morning.
A simple swipe with a cotton pad in the morning give me a quick refresher and will remove any oil or sweat that surfaced overnight. I also use it on the go on those hot days at the beach or pool to remove sweat, sea water or pool chlorine and chemicals from my skin.
Which one do I use? Well…truth be told that I use all three for different purposes. Sooo not necessary but I just love Micellar Water that using them all just makes sense to me 🙂
I use the Sebium H2O most regularly as I have oily skin. This is the water that I use daily to cleanse in the morning and remove makeup at night.
I use the Hydrabio H2O when I skip my night time skin care routine as it contains added moisture effects. This is also my on the go Micellar Water on hot days to keep my skin from getting dehydrated.
I apply the Sensibio H2O twice a week after I exfoliate to soothe the skin.
