All about: Synergie's brand new Micellution


Models swear by them, every make-up artist I know has one in his or her kit and with their no-rinse, three-in-one formulas they're perfect for traveling and late nights. What are they? Micellar waters, and I for one have been a looooong time fan.
Micellar waters first gained momentum in Paris, whose skin-conscious inhabitants welcomed the opportunity to swerve the bad effect that the city's famously hard water had on their skin. I have always picked a couple of bottles up when I visit family in France, and love the way they work. Designed to be swept away with a cotton pad rather than rinsed off, micellar waters use tiny micelle particles to draw make-up (including waterproof mascara), sebum and impurities from the skin. Depending upon how much make-up you wear you may prefer to remove eye make-up separately, but since micellar waters are free of soap and alcohol they are a way more gentle alternative to harsh face wipes, making them perfect for when you're in a rush or on the go.
I am definitely not the only one who loves how Micellar Cleansing Water works, capturing impurities like a magnet and trapping them within the Micelles, which are then carried off by the Micellar water and are effectively eliminated without the need for rubbing or rinsing. They are also ‘multi-zone’ products as they remove make-up from the face, eyes and lips and don’t require water, so great for travel and at the gym et al.
A few of the supermarket and pharmacy brands have launched their Micellar waters into the local market of late (at LONG last), but recently I’ve had the chance to try a more luxe version in the form of Synergie Micellution, the latest product from the highly respected Synergie Minerals brand.
Micellution is a gentle 4-in-1 micellar cleansing water that will effectively remove traces of makeup, oil build-up and impurities from the skin. In a few sweeps, impurities are dissolved without stripping the skin, leaving the skin purified, balanced, soothed and hydrated.
Micellution follows the Synergie ‘Clean Science’ philosophy, which means it is formulated without PEG, parabens, irritating surfactants such as SLS, artificial fragrance or colours. The calming solution makes it a skin-nurturing alternative to the harsh traditional face wipe, and it is suitable for use on all skin types, including sensitive skin, and gentle enough to use on the eyes and lips. This makes it stand out from many of those that I’ve tried in the past, and will definitely make me use it again (and again).
Its key ingredients are witch hazel (a natural astringent that reduces inflammation and sanitises the skin), Sodium PCA (a deep hydrator acting like a ‘water magnet’), Canadian Willowherb (an amazing anti-irritant and anti-redness ingredient for all skin types) and good old Aloe Vera.

Micellution is available from June 1, RRP $75.00.
