Micellar water gets its name from the science behind the product. It’s made of “micelles,” which are tiny oil molecules suspended in water.

Fabulously fresh: Micellar water cleanser

These micelles basically have the perfect composition for trapping and removing make-up, dust and pollution on the skin. And unlike most cleansers, Micellar water is non-rinse and soap-free.

“Applied with a cotton pad, it’s ideal for removing make-up and lifting impurities from the skin – all in one quick sweep,” says session make-up artist Georgia Hayes.

“It’s a quick fix for perking up dull skin and it’s brilliantly soothing too. A make-up artist friend of mine introduced me to Melvita Rose Nectar Micellar a year or so ago and it has become a must-have in my everyday make-up kit.”
