What We're Sweet On: Multitasking Cleanser, No Water Needed

Oct 10 2012 - 3:30am

It's time to come clean. If you're the type that falls asleep in makeup (no judgments here), La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution [1] ($21) is your new bedside companion. While the product carries a rather scientific name, what it boils down to is that it's one-third makeup remover, one-third cleanser, and one-third toner.

Micellar waters are popular in France, but in recent years they've crossed the pond to the American beauty market. Micelles are minuscule oil molecules suspended in water that gently remove dirt and makeup; no extra H2O is needed for use. And unlike many toners, these types of solutions are devoid of drying effects because they're developed sans sulfates, soaps, and alcohol. Keep multiple cotton pads along with this product near the bed for late-night cleansing — or wait until the morning for a quick, multitasking, low-maintenance wash.
