For the longest of time, I have been using micellar waters to remove my makeup. My skin was quite sensitive and acne-prone, so micellar waters were a lifesaver - they not only did the job but worked well on my skin.. but the only downside was that the brand that worked for me was really expensive $$$$$$. Not only that, I always had to use a separate remover for my waterproof mascaras (before I had eyelash extensions) because the micellar water could never remove it completely.
1. The Pink Micellar – for light makeup users who don’t use waterproof mascara
2. Blue Biphase Micellar (blue cap) - which contains no oil but is able to remove even waterproof makeup!
Also, it’s made in the U.S. but lucky for us, SG is actually the first country in Asia to fly this in from the U.S.!
The Blue Micellar Water has a special biphase formula that works to remove waterproof makeup, but is gentle enough on your eyes and skin so it's still suitable for sensitive skin (no oil, fragrance, or alcohol). Just like other biphase cleansers, you are supposed to shake it up to create an emulsion.
If you get home too late or are just too lazy to remove your makeup properly, here's a tip!
Like I mentioned, cleansing is very important so while there isn't a need to, I do like to wash my face before I apply my skincare products. Have been trying out Garnier's new cleansers and I love how gentle they all are. My favourite is the Balancing Daily Exfoliator!
The Green Cleanser + Wipes has Jojoba and peppermint for normal skin. The Black Cleanser + Wipes has charcoal for oily skin. The Orange Cleanser has pomegranate and grapefruit for combination skin. The Light Blue Wipes has calming plant extracts for sensitive skin. One for every skin type!
Blue version sells at $19.90 (but there is a 20% off intro price now; $15.90), and is available at Watsons, Guardian and major super/hypermarts
