Made popular thanks to backstage images of pro makeup artists’ Fashion Week kits, micellar waters gently remove dirt and makeup, and crucially there’s no need to rinse them off. While they shouldn’t replace a regular deep cleanse they are handy if you favour cleansing in bed once in a while and are a good option as part of a double cleanse routine.
