With everyone staying home these days, we’ve begun paying more attention to things we otherwise ignore. The dust on that shelf, the bits of paper under the cupboard, the blackheads on nose, the acne scars and so much more. It’s tempting to start fixing everything at once, as you probably know by now!
Cleaning the entire house from top to bottom may not be feasible right now, but cleaning your face certainly is! And before you reach out for your usual cleanser or face wash, allow us to introduce our newest product in the cleansing range – Micellar Water.
Micellar water is a multi-purpose skincare product that consists of oil and surfactant molecules called micelles, suspended in purified water. It looks like water but feels different when you touch it. The name Micellar Water is due to the action of the micelles, which naturally attract dirt, oil, and other impurities from the skin.
Mamaearth Micellar Water Foaming Makeup Remover is a water-based cleanser that comes bottled with a built-in brush, easing out the cleansing process. The key actives are rose water, glycerin, and glycolic acid.
Rose Water – Rose water is a popular ingredient in skincare since ancient times. It has strong anti-inflammatory properties and can soothe skin irritation and redness. It also has antiseptic properties that can help heal bacterial infections like acne. Moreover, rose water draws out excess sebum from the skin.
Glycerin – Glycerin is usually a major component in micellar water, thanks to its humectant properties. This means that glycerin draws in moisture from the air and locks it in the skin. It can also reduce symptoms of skin irritation and inflammation. Glycerin also increases the permeability of the skin, which helps it absorb nutrients.
Glycolic Acid: Glycolic acid is an active ingredient extracted from plants and is a great exfoliant. The biggest advantage of glycolic acid is in the way it gets rid of dead skin cell buildup, revealing fresh layers of skin underneath. This also helps get rid of impurities that are deeper within the skin.
Now that you know what goes into the Mamaearth Micellar Water Foaming Makeup Remover, here’s a look at all the wonderful things this does.
- Serves Multiple Purposes
Mamaearth Micellar Water does many jobs – it is a cleanser, a toner, a makeup remover, and an exfoliant. This also makes this product a travel-friendly option since you don’t have to pack too many things, especially when there are restrictions on carrying liquids. What’s more, it also comes with an attached brush so you don’t need another one!
- Removes Makeup and Impurities Effectively
If you’ve ever tried removing makeup with regular makeup removers, you’ll notice that they leave behind a film of oil on the face and then you have to apply another product to get rid of it. However, with the Mamaearth Micellar Water Foaming Makeup Remover, you don’t have that problem. Since it’s water-based, it gets rid of all the dirt, makeup, and other impurities without any residue. And it does it all in under a minute!
- Doesn’t Dry Out Skin
Many skin products out there add alcohol to their list of ingredients to increase their efficacy which extremely dries out the skin. With ingredients like Glycerin and Glycolic Acid, Mamaearth Micellar Water doesn’t need alcohol or other harsh chemicals to do the job. It carries the goodness inside it with natural ingredients like rose water! In fact, the micelles used in it are mild surfactants that are gentle on the skin and don’t dry it out or cause any stinging feeling.
- Is Ideal for Sensitive Skin
Mamaearth Micellar Water Foaming Makeup Remover is dermatologically tested and certified to be MadeSafe. It is ideal for all skin types, but particularly for sensitive skin since it is alcohol-free and contains ingredients that soothe inflammation, like rose water. It is also free from parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. This makes it especially good for those with skin conditions like rosacea. The brush attachment is also gentle on the skin.
- Unclogs Pores
Along with cleansing and getting rid of dirt and oil, Mamaearth Micellar Water Foaming Makeup Remover also unclogs pores, keeping skin clear and toned. Clogged pores can lead to blackheads, acne, or more serious breakouts that can lead to stubborn scars. It also does the job of a toner by purifying the skin.
- Gently Exfoliates
Most exfoliants available today contain abrasive particles that can be quite harsh on the skin of the face, which is thinner than the skin on the rest of the body. Mamaearth Micellar Water Foaming Makeup Remover contains a plant-derived exfoliant that does the job without giving skin a harsh scrub. The glycolic acid gently exfoliates, getting rid of dead skin cells and buildup.
- Moisturizes Skin
Many face washes leave your face with a tight, stretched feeling after washing. This is a sign that the cleanser is too drying for your skin and is zapping it of all its moisture. Instead of doing this, the Mamaearth Micellar Water Foaming Makeup Remover adds extra moisture to the skin. Glycerin is an intensely hydrating ingredient and keeps skin moisturized and nourished all day.
- Takes Just a Minute
Generally speaking, you’d have to use a makeup remover and a cotton pad to first remove makeup from your face. Then you’d have to wash it with a cleanser, pat dry and then apply a toner. If you wanted to exfoliate, that’s another step added. However, with the Mamaearth Micellar Water Foaming Makeup Remover, you can accomplish all this in just one step, in under a minute.
Using Mamaearth Micellar Water Foaming Makeup Remover is easy. Just wet your face and neck with water. Pump out some of the product on the brush. Gently massage all over the face and neck, removing makeup as you go. The massage will also increase blood circulation and rejuvenate you. To clean the brush, dip it in a mixture of equal parts vinegar and warm water. Leave it in for 5-10 minutes and rinse thoroughly with a hand or body wash to get rid of stains.
If you have other products to apply in your skincare routine, apply the serum after using the Micellar Water Foaming Makeup Remover. It can be used as a regular face wash in the morning and before bed as well as a makeup remover. It is also perfect to clean your face after a sweaty workout or a long day outdoors.
Mamaearth Micellar Water Foaming Makeup Remover is suitable for men and women aged 15 years and above, of all skin types. Yet, it is recommended to do a patch test before trying out the product on your face.
