Ask any French woman if she uses a micellar cleanser and almost every gal aged 13-93 will say, "Mais Oui!" I learned this secret many years ago upon visiting my in laws in France and seeing a bottle of micellar cleanser on my mother-in-law's bathroom table. Needless to say, years later I have been hooked ever since. I usually stock up each time I go to France, but now thanks to Avene you can now buy a micellar cleanser in the U.S. and you won't have to pay hefty prices, shipping or custom fees in the process.
The Avene Micellar Lotion Cleanser and Make Up Remover ($20 for 6.76 fl oz at drugstore.com) is the first step I do to clean my face. It gets rid of all my makeup and eye makeup and doesn't leave my skin dry. If I am not wearing a lot of makeup that day, I won't have to cleanse my skin again. The magic of a micellar lotion is that it's a no-rinse formula. (In France, the water can be hard so most women there don't rinse their skin with water often.) If I am wearing full makeup with foundation, I'll do a cream cleanser after to get rid of all my makeup traces. I have found over the last few years, that I'm not stripping my skin by washing and scrubbing it too much. I love the soft scent of Avene's micellar lotion too! It contains hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin, keeping it soft and moisturized. It is soap-free, oil-free, alcohol-free and presservative-free. Can't beat that!
Micellar lotion will always be a part of my routine. Now that Avene has brought it to the U.S., give it a try to see the difference in your skin! It's really great for those with sensitive skin.
