Micellar waters, how did we ever manage without? I honestly can’t imagine my routine without them. Going back to cleansing milk? No thanks! Especially now that there are so many affordable options available at the drug store, there’s really no need to miss out anymore. One of the latest additions has been the Nivea Micellar Water for sensitive skin. I had been testing this formula a little over a month when 2 new additions landed on my doorstep; a version for normal/ combination skin and a person for dry skin, both hitting the stores this month.
But first things first. Micellar water thanks its cleansing magic to its particles, which consist of oil molecules and water, together creating a formula that attracts dirt and hydrates at the same time. In turn, removing makeup with a cotton becomes a lot easier. I’ve been enjoying Nivea’s Micellar Water for sensitive skin a lot lately and I totally understand why it was chosen ‘Product of the Year 2015’. It’s gentle on the skin yet very effective in getting rid of both face and eye makeup and afterwards my skin doesn’t feel dehydrated. I do feel the need to double cleanse just to be sure, because sometimes there’s still some dirt left you can’t notice on the cotton pad. That is why I’ll always cleanse once more with a cleansing oil or cleansing balm.
As for performance, I think the Nivea Micellar Water for sensitive skin is pretty much equal to my other drug store favourite, the Garnier Micellar Water. But as for price, the Garnier one is still on top as you get double the amount for just a little bit more (€ 6,5). I have yet to try the latest additions to both ranges, but I’ll let you know when I do!
