In recent years, micellar water has been the talk of the Internet within the beauty world, with bloggers, Youtubers and beauty journalists hailing the many benefits of this revolutionary cleansing product. 

Let's start with the science...

Originating from laboratories in France, micellar water (eau micellaire, en Français!) is a water-based solution consisting of 'micelles', microscopic spheres comprised of surfactant molecules, whose composition of water and oil-loving properties draw oil and dirt away from the surface to which it is applied.

Great news for our skincare routines, as when applied to a cotton pad and swept across the face, micellar water removes all traces of oil and dirt from the skin without the need to rinse - a product that is both highly effective and time-saving, what’s not to love?!

Even better news, is that that the INSTANT DEMAKE S and DEMAKE P from French cosmeceutical experts, Phasilab, contain skin-loving ingredients to further enhance your skincare experience. 

I have been using and loving both products religiously for months now as part of my daily skincare routine. Due to my oily skin type, I use the DEMAKE P (Purity) in the morning to remove any excess oil and to give me a clean base on which to apply my daily makeup. This product is brilliant for removing excess shine, leaving my face feeling fresh and matte, without the skin tightening effects that come with many oil control products that I have tried in the past. The anti-inflammatory properties contained within this micellar water, including liquorice extract, help to calm my red-toned skin, and I feel like I am treating my skin to the best possible start to the day with this product.

In the evening, I will reach for the DEMAKE S (Sensitivity), specially formulated for sensitive skin types. My skin is easily aggravated, so this gentle cleanser is perfect for me to wipe away any impurities on my skin from the day. This product is particularly effective for use around the sensitive eye area - I find that I can remove my eye makeup easily with absolutely no irritation at all to the delicate skin around my eyes.

Either of these products would also be ideal to decant in to a small bottle to take on board an aircraft as part of your carry-on luggage for a simple and refreshing in-flight cleanse, and I'm looking forward to doing just that on my next long haul flight.

I particularly like that the INSTANT range by Phasilab offers this choice of micellar water to cater to all skin types, and I am delighted to have found a skincare routine that I can really feel benefiting my skin, by cleansing, soothing and moisturising. I for one can’t see myself without these products taking pride of place in my skincare routine for the foreseeable future.
