Face care guide: Adding Micellar water to your skincare routine

WHAT IS MICELLAR WATER AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

Micellar water like NIVEA Perfect & Radiant Micellar 3-in-1 Cleansing Water is a cleanser that contains micelles. These suspended surfactant molecules are hydrophilic and oleophilic meaning they attract water, oil and the dirt. Which when combined with a cotton pad, also works to remove stubborn makeup.

The unique properties of micellar water mean that, depending on your skin type, it can be used as a facial cleanser, makeup remover and in the case of NIVEA Perfect & Radiant Micellar 3-in-1 Cleansing Water, a toner.
