Micellar water has been around for over a century – and is big in France. Apparently the water around Paris and the north of the country is incredibly harsh, meaning generations of Parisienne women have never let a touch of de l’eau touch their faces. This is where micellar water came about, a cleanser that didn’t need any water to do the job.

According to Elle, the formula is made of micelles, which are tiny oil molecules suspended in soft water. « The technology of it is actually quite old, dating back from research at the University of Bristol in 1913, » says dermatologist and Simple skincare expert Dr. Debra Luftman. « Micelles are attracted to dirt, grime, and oil, and they draw out impurities without drying out your skin, » she explains. Rather than containing a foamy solution that strips your skin and leaves behind harsh chemicals, micelles cling on to the dirt and makeup on your skin and dissolve them while leaving behind a glowy, hydrated finish.
