Hey guys & happy Sunday to you all! Ziaja is a brand I’ve come to love-especially for skincare. Everything on the site is detailed, under $15, & you get free shipping on all orders! What’s not to love? Today I want to shine a spotlight on an often overlooked product that I actually love in my skincare routine- cleansing waters! Keep reading to check them out!
What exactly is a micellar solution? A micelle is a tiny oil molecule that is suspended in soft water. Its special feature is that instead of smearing your makeup around your face like most makeup removers do, the micelle molecules effectively eat up and absorb dirt and makeup. The solutions feel just like water, and are kind to and soft on skin.
So here I have the Marine Algae & Natural Olive Micellar Waters. Basically both products do the same thing- clean my face quickly without leaving behind residue. I so wish I had these back in high school for dance recitals & such- I went through so many makeup wipes that just didn’t work. Does it eat up waterproof makeup? Not as well as an oil- but it also doesn’t leave behind residue so I’m okay with it. After a rough day when I need to apply a new face to go/do something else this is perfect. It doesn’t dry out my skin, irritate my sensitive skin, or leave behind any kind of product. Just fresh clean skin. I tend to use a cotton pad but I’ve found these also work great on reusable, thinner cloths.
You can purchase any of the Ziaja Micellar Waters for only $12.99 from their website. I love having them on hand for when toner just isn’t a great idea! I’ve also reviewed a few toners on the blog which you can check out here!
Do you use cleansing waters or milks? What do you look for in a product like this? Any other types of cleansing waters you’d like to see Ziaja expand into?
