Today I was wearing Garnier BB cream which has a light, slightly oily coverage (more on that later). I like it though because when I’m slightly tan it matches my complexion better.
Since I had light coverage on today, I thought it’d be a great time to try out my new Simple Micellar Water that I had just picked up yesterday at CVS. I had read somewhere that it works better when you have lighter coverage (I think the CVS.com website…).
Description from the Simple website:
“Simple Micellar Cleansing Water thoroughly cleanses by removing make-up, dirt, and impurities while unclogging pores. To instantly boost skin hydration by 90 percent, it is made with triple purified water, skin-loving ingredients, and multivitamins. Applied with a cotton round, Simple Micellar Cleansing Water leaves skin feeling fresh and revitalized, with no residue and no rinsing required.”
So I sat down and went through my evening routine. I took out my cotton pads and dosed an ample amount of the Micellar Water on a pad. And yes, it is just like water in its consistency.
I read the simple (no pun intended) directions and slapped that cotton on my face. I rubbed gently in circles and I could tell from my reflection and the pad itself that a LOT of makeup was coming off.
Like all Simple products, it has no perfumes or weird chemicals. But this did have a slight scent that was pleasant. It wafted away soon after but it was nice, not distracting in any way.
My skin felt GREAT. It does feel like you’re washing your face. Though it says no need to rinse, it was hard for me to resist the urge since we’re trained basically since we’re born to wash our face. But I resisted.It has been 15 minutes now and my face feels clean, moisturized, and amazing. This could be a new favorite.Like anyone else I’m known to skip a face washing every now and then. This could change all that. It actually feels good and satisfying to clean your face like this.
My take: Love it. Try it!
