Cleansing water, also known as micellar water, is used to remove make-up and dirt from the skin. It has the viscosity and looks like water but when you apply it to your skin the texture feels different.
What is cleaning water?
Cleansing water is a way to cleanse the skin. The water consists of micelles (small balls of cleansing gel) dissolved in soft water. The micelles are attracted to dirt and oil, which is why they clean the face without drying out the skin. This means that cleaning water can be used as a cleanser, make-up remover and as a moisturizer.
However, a cleansing water is not so strong that it can remove heavy foundation or tricky eye makeup such as waterproof mascara. For these moments it is best to use a separate make-up remover to completely protect your face from impurities.
Korean micellar water
In Korea, a cleansing water is a combination of the first two steps of the famous skincare routine. Little Wonderland has made a selection of different cleaning waters from the best brands, such as Missha, Benton and Neogen.
Cleansing water is recommended for people with dry and sensitive skin types because it is so soft and moisturizing. A facial gel can quickly make dry skin too dry. However, micellar water contains no alcohol and often no harsh ingredients, so it will not sting.
Cleaning water is best used with a cotton ball so that when you use the water, the product can absorb dirt more easily. If you have a more oily skin, it may be that the product does not clean as much as you would like. That is why we recommend a cleansing oil or cleansing gel for slightly oily skin.
How do you use a cleaning water in your routine?
Cleansing water is the first step in your routine to rid your skin of sebum and other imperfections. You use it by moistening a cotton ball or other product that can absorb the water well with the cleaning water. Gently rub the cotton ball all over your face and neck. It's that simple! With cleaning water it is not necessary to rinse it with water. After this, if you have some heavier makeup, you can choose to use a cleansing oil or cleansing gel. Otherwise you can apply a scrub or peeling.
