1. Clinique Take The Day Off Micellar Cleansing Towelettes (£16.00 for 50)
Saturated with a gentle micellar water solution, these oversized wipes have been specifically designed for use before you undertake a second stage 'proper cleanse'. They're gentle on the skin, non irritating and hard working too - removing a lot of the visible makeup from the surface with little rubbing or tugging. Although £16.00 may sound like a lot, with fifty towelettes (a posh word for oversized wipes) in each resealable and practically air-tight pack, it actually works out a worthy investment.
2. Bioderma Sensibio H20 MicelleSolition Makeup Removing Wipes (£7.00 for 25)
After everyone else has had a go, the original micellar brand has finally launched their own take on the micellar wipe. Each one is infused with a very gentle micellar solution, which cleanses the skin with fatty acid esters that are similar in structure to those of our skin cell membranes. The result of this is that the balance of our skin is well respected, while offering effective makeup removal... That's all a girl can ask for.
If you're in the market for a face wipe and don't know where to turn, then micellar wipes are gentler than their chemical rich counterparts. Look for 'micelle' or 'micellar' in the description, as well as key words that include 'soothing, gentle, nourishing or non-irritating.' Generally speaking, the ones you can pick up for a couple of quid aren't going to do your skin much good - so investing a little more will help you out in the long run.
