When you discover a product that’s a staple in a French women’s beauty bag, you know you want to use it if they, of the oh-so-flawless skin clique, swear by it. In this case, we are talking about micellar water.

This fabulous cleansing water is super gentle and draws out all the dirt, grime and impurities without drying or stripping your skin. And if you have sensitive skin, this should be your Holy Grail beauty buy. The water contains small particles called micelles, which are small oil molecules suspended in water that work like a miniature sponge, soaking up dirt, oil and makeup and hydrating the skin at the same time.

The best part? It can be used on the delicate eyes and lip area and doubles up as a toner. Even better – most formulas don’t require you to rinse it off with water. You can simply pour some over a cotton ball and cleanse your face and voilà, you’re good to go! How’s that for efficiency?
