          I used this product to remove my make up and mascara, it did pretty good at removing make up but the mascara took a lot of work and i dont wear waterproof. I cleaned my face first and tried to do the mascara but it mainly just smeared it and took 5 times to get it removed then used a washcloth to make sure it was all off.

                • Q:

                  I know it says no oil on the front of the bottle, but the substance itself looks oily, therefore we have to shake it before we use it. Does anyone know if this is actually some kind of oil? I'm looking to use micellar water for lash extensions, but if there's any oil and this, I'll have to switch to the other one that's not for waterproof makeup

                    Hello Airee! SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover does not contain oil. The main component of micellar water are micelles, which are tiny lipid cleansing molecules suspended in water. These particles have the ability to attract oil particles and lift them off of skin, like a magnet. Micelles are extremely thorough and can remove long-lasting make up such as waterproof mascara or kiss-proof lipstick. We hope this information was helpful!

                    A:

                    The Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Waterproof is a biphase formula. This kind of formula is great for removing even stubborn waterproof mascara without any harsh rubbing. However, before using this Micellar product, be sure to shake it well to combine the 2 layers well. Once the contents takes on a uniform milky look its ready to use. Not shaking well before using can leave the product feeling like its oily or heavy. Also, a little goes a long way, no need to over saturate your cotton pad.

                    Hi makeupjunkie2017! Yes, the Micellar Cleansing Water for Waterproof makeup is oil-free. We do advise that you be gentle when applying this over your eyes. Do not put directly on top of your eyelashes (unless you are wearing mascara), but on top of your eyelids first. We believe this will help pro-long the wear time of your extensions and help you have a clean, makeup free face when you go to sleep. We hope this helps!
