When it comes to cleansing, I’m kind of militant about the whole deal. No matter how late it is, or how tired I am, I just cannot go to bed without cleaning my face. I hate the feeling of makeup after a few hours, and there’s nothing worse than waking up with makeup smeared all over your pillowcases. Nightly I tend to use a balm or oil, then a foaming cleanser, eye makeup remover and a swipe of micellar water. It’s probably more intense than 99% of people, but I like my skin to be super clean before I add my nightly moisturiser, and if I don’t follow through, my face tends to get super dull super fast!
I’ve only ever heard wondrous things about the ByTerry brand, so when I got the chance to try their new Micellar Water Cleanser, you can imagine how quickly I said yes! To be honest, I didn’t realise that they were so into skincare as a brand – mostly my interest has centred around their lip glosses and foundations, so I was super excited to give their Micellar a whirl.
Packaged in a chic, clear, slightly squeezable plastic bottle, the Micellar Water is delicately scented with rose. Honestly, roses aren’t usually my favourite fragrance, but this smells heavenly – it’s delicate and fresh, and incredibly pretty. To use, I simply squirt a little of the Micellar water onto a cotton pad, and sweep over my face in upwards strokes. It completely dissolves any leftover makeup, and it feels absolutely glorious on the skin. It’s so cooling and soothing, it’s an absolute godsend for people with sensitised skin like me. It also leaves skin feeling incredibly soft and hydrated – absolutely perfect for a quick moisturise and then bed!
ByTerry Cellularose Micellar Water is priced at £43 and is available here
