Beauty // Nivea Essentials Micellar Water

Micellar water: a skincare product that never tickled my fancy too much, until I read some more info on it. What does it do exactly? Why is everyone so stoked about it? I tried various options and I have to admit that I also stepped into the micellar side. Nivea recently expanded their micellar water skincare range, so I thought it would be fun to write an article about it and to look deeper into the buzz.

But first things first: What is micellar water about? What does it do?

"A micelle is a particle that exists out of oil molecules that are dug into water. It works as a magnet and attracts tallow and impurities. At the same time, it hydrates the skin, keeping it balanced and nourished. Thanks to this technology, make up and imperfections on the skin will be removed in a very effective way. Micellar water cleans and purifies the skin without dehydrating it and makes the skin look fresh."

First up is the original Sensitive & Nourishing Micellar Water, which focuses on the sensitive skin. It will clean your skin, tonify and hydrate it as well -- which is probably why it won Product Of The Year 2015. It contains Dexpanthenol and grapeseed oil and will help reduce the three main signs of a dry skin: redness, dryness and that typical tearing feeling.

The Sensitive & Nourishing Micellar Water is the best option for my sensitive skin and is my personal favorite. My skin has calmed down and does not feel itchy anymore. Since I don't want to mess with my skin, I didn't try the other two products (since they don't apply to my skin type).


Aqua, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Vitis Vinifera Seed Oil, Panthenol, Glyceryl Glucoside, Glycerin, Sorbitol, Decyl Glucoside, Poloxamer 124, Polyquaternium-10, Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Acetate, Propylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Trisodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol

Nivea also launched the Softening & Nourishing Micellar Water for dry skin. It contains almond oil, which calms, protects and softens the skin.

  3. Looks like they have a good range for all skin tones!

    I tried one here when I went in for a makeup trial when I was looking to replace my current makeup. It was HORRIBLE. I couldn't wait to wash it off my face, most uncomfortable feeling all day! I've never tried another once since, haha!
