Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Petals: A quick review

Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Petals: A quick review

What it is: A gentle, no-rinse formula used to remove light makeup and impurities from skin.

Using gentle ingredients such as coconut-derived surfactant (the micelle oil part needed to take off the makeup without taking the lipid layer off skin, too), rose water and green tea extract (for antioxidant protection), this cleanser works to clean and protect skin.

Beauty bonus: With no harsh alcohol, parabens or soaps this cleanser is neither harsh nor drying.

Beauty bummer: If you're wearing full-on night out makeup, a wash with your fav cleanser followed  by this product may be your best bet for a squeaky clean feeling.

Overall: We weren't sure how to use this product at first (What is Micellar, exactly?!), so we tried it post-wash as a toner. And we were sort of correct in doing so ...

After a little research, we learned Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Petals has the skin-calming qualities of a toner, with the makeup-removing qualities of a cleanser.

It feels lovely on the skin and we were particularly impressed with how it removed trace amounts of lipstick without leaving lips feeling sticky or dry.

While we probably wouldn't use this as our sole cleanser, it's perfect for removing stubborn makeup and oil before applying moisturizer.
