Long hailed by French­women and makeup artists for its abil­ity to cleanse skin with­out strip­ping it dry, mi­cel­lar wa­ter is go­ing next level. The no-rinse makeup-eras­ing liq­uid (teeny drops of sus­pended oil bond to pig­ments, oil and dirt) was birthed in France in the 1920s and has fi­nally got­ten a 21st-century tweak. Here are three new adap­ta­tions: 1. Sephora Col­lec­tion Mi­cel­lar Cleans­ing Wa­ter in Char­coal ($11) taps buzzy in­gre­di­ent ac­ti­vated char­coal, known for its ca­pac­ity to draw out de­bris from the epi­der­mis for an ul­tra-deep clean. 2. Garnier Sk­inAc­tive Mi­cel­lar Wa­ter Wipes ($10) are fra­grance­free and prom­ise to clean skin and re­move last night’s Al­tuzarrain­spired smudgy eye. 3. NeoS­trata Detox­i­fy­ing Mi­cel­lar Gel ($22) con­tains a plant ex­tract called “cell­detox” that helps re­in­force the process of cell detox­i­fi­ca­tion (and trans­lates into cleaner skin and a faster up­take of your anti-ag­ing serum).
