In the skincare universe, micellar water quickly became a favorite for everyone. It was good for the skin and perfect for lazy people for days when we just didn’t have time for 15 steps. It cleansed the face, got rid of makeup, and you could head right to bed without rinsing it off. Fast forward a couple years, you can now get wipes soaked with micellar water goodness. This is great to throw in your bag just in case you need it and is even perfect for travel. You can leave your favorite bottle at home and bring a pack of 25 pulls or more with you instead.
