Micellar water vs cleansing milk: which should you choose?
Doing your make-up is often a pleasure, but having to remove your make-up is usually a nuisance. Who has ever gone to bed without removing their make-up? No matter how lazy you are, there is no worse decision! Don’t think that the impurities on your face came out of nowhere. They are nothing more than the residues of make-up deposited, together with smog and other external agents. Not removing make-up is therefore a serious mistake.
Even with proper cleansing of the face, some impurities tend to remain, which is why it is important to choose the products to use carefully. You can choose micellar water or cleansing milk, or why not both. The important thing is to choose a product that is suitable for your skin and effective.
So let’s take a look at the properties of micellar water and those of cleansing milk to see if and how you can make a choice for your skin.
Micellar water: What is it used for?
The main characteristic of micellar water is that it is odourless and colourless. Ideal for removing make-up and impurities from the face and eye area.
But how does micellar water work as a cleanser? The technology used is micelle technology: these are surfactants which combine to form microscopic spheres capable of attracting and incorporating sebum, traces of smog and make-up, thus eliminating them.
This capacity of the micelles does not however alter the physiological balance of the skin. Since the active ingredients and natural extracts are also present, the skin is pure and nourished. Simply moisten a cotton pad with the micellar water to gently dab over the face, eyes and even the most delicate parts. Benessence cleanser is based on Aloe Vera with extracts of Moringa, Calendula and Chamomile. There is no need to rinse, and after use you can even decide to combine it with cleansing gel to complete the cleansing process.
Benefits and characteristics of cleansing milk
The classic cleansing milk has a purifying and protective action.
This is a fluid emulsion, with a lipid base, which collects impurities and make-up, mixing with them and eliminating them. It also has a soothing and moisturizing power, as it nourishes the face and prepares it for the next steps in your beauty routine. All Benessence cosmetics products are organic, as is the Aloe Vera-based milk.
In this case too, you will need a cotton pad on which to pour the milk and spread it in circular movements, making a real massage which allows the skin to absorb the natural components of the product. Any residue should then be removed with a clean cotton pad or with thermal water.
What is the difference between micellar water and cleansing milk?
The world of facial cleansers is full of products and options that are difficult to navigate. But good facial cleansing is the first real step in caring for your skin. It is therefore essential to remove make-up and leave the skin clean and free to breathe, free of various impurities.
Cleansing milk should be applied in the evening with a cotton disk to ensure deep cleansing and moisturizing. For those with dry facial skin, it is a very suitable product, thanks to its velvety and dense consistency.
Micellar water, on the other hand, is one of the most innovative ways of removing excess make-up. It is quick and suitable for more sensitive skin, on which it has a soothing and calming effect.
In addition, it is essential to use a toner such as our Benessence toner with ginger extracts. Clear pores and lets your skin breathe.
Now you have everything you need for your beauty routine: treat yourself to a natural pampering! 😉
