Reading time: 6 min

Micellar cleansing water has become a staple in many skincare routines due to its gentle yet effective cleansing properties. Whether you have dry, oily, or sensitive skin, micellar water can help you achieve a clean, refreshed complexion without the need for harsh chemicals or multiple products. In this article, we will explore what micellar water is, its various uses, and how to effectively incorporate it into your skincare routine.

What is micellar water? 

Micellar water is a gentle, multipurpose skincare product that effectively cleanses the skin while offering numerous benefits. The key ingredient is micelles, tiny balls of cleansing molecules that attract and draw out dirt, impurities, and excess oil from the skin. This leaves your skin feeling refreshed, smooth, and radiant with an even tone.

Uses of micellar water: 

Micellar water can be used for:

  • Makeup removal
  • Hydration
  • Skin toning
  • Cleaning makeup brushes
  • Soothing sunburned skin

Micellar water is a must-have for soft, smooth, and even-toned skin due to its gentle and effective cleansing properties. Its moisturizing properties make it an excellent choice for daily use.

Does micellar water remove makeup properly?

Absolutely. Micellar water is widely used to remove makeup, cleanse the face, and act as a toner. It can even remove waterproof makeup in one swipe if it contains a soft detergent. While most makeup removes instantly without rubbing, some products, like waterproof mascara, may require additional effort.

If simply wiping your face with micellar water or washing it with soap and water is not working, it’s time to consider double cleansing.

What Is Double Cleansing?

Double cleansing involves cleaning your skin twice: first with an oil-based cleanser, cleansing balm, or micellar water, and then with a water-based cleanser. This method, originating from Korean beauty trends dating back to the 14th century, ensures your skin is thoroughly clean before applying night skincare products.

The first step with micellar water removes makeup residue, excess oil, and sunscreen. The second step with a water-based cleanser clears off dirt, sweat, and oil while exfoliating and hydrating the skin. This two-step routine provides a deeper cleansing experience, removing build-up and makeup traces, and leaving your skin clean and refreshed.

Double cleansing is a K-beauty secret that provides faster and more effective results, making it a worthwhile investment for those seeking an efficient skincare routine. Don’t you love to keep figuring out k-beauty secrets?

The best way to incorporate micellar cleansing water to your skincare routine

Now that you are well aware of the benefits of double cleansing, you can make it a part of your regular skincare ritual. Here's how to do it effectively:


Step 1: The First Cleanse

The first cleanse in the double cleansing method is crucial for removing dirt, heavy makeup, and pollution from the skin's surface. Invest in fragrance-free, alcohol-free, and gentle micellar cleansing water to protect your skin's texture.

Step 2: Water based Cleanser

After the first cleanse, move on to massage your face with Face Reset, enjoy the bubbles and all the benefits! It’s filled with Squalane, Hyaluronic acid and Coconut. So nutritious, soft and kind with your skin barrier.

It’s perfect for all skin types! Even if you have dry or sensitivity because it provides a cleansing effect without stripping off natural oils.

Step 3: Eye Cream 

After patting your face dry, use our Coffee Break Eye Cream. Take a small amount on your finger and gently massage the under-eye area for 1 minute. Inspired by K-beauty trends, it contains 1% caffeine, squalane, and panthenol, which help reduce the appearance of puffiness, under-eye bags, dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles.



Step 4: Serum

A deep cleaning procedure leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean and promotes improved absorption of skincare products. Applying skin serums with active ingredients after double cleansing ensures better absorption and faster results. Try Jess Beauty's Shine Bright Serum for brightening and hydrating effects.

Step 5: Moisturise

To finish your double cleanse skincare routine, don't forget to moisturize thoroughly. If your skin doesn't naturally retain moisture, apply a nourishing night cream like our C bomb vitamin C or  Post Workout Gel. Both of them are made with natural organic ingredients, vegan and paraben free.
