Love it: INIKA Organic Micellar Cleansing Rosewater

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, releases that were later joined by more luxe versions. The first organic version has now crossed my desk however, and I have fallen head over heels for it.
Its creators are INIKA Organic, who proudly call themselves “the most natural and Certified Organic makeup brand on the market”. INIKA Organic Micellar Cleansing Rosewater has been released alongside INIKA Certified Organic Makeup Remover for those who prefer that method of makeup removal - a gentle and pure, oil-based formula infused with Certified Organic sunflower, rosehip and jojoba oils and vitamin E.
I’ve been using INIKA Organic Micellar Cleansing Rosewater pretty much daily since I received a bottle to play with, and can’t get enough of the natural and delicate rose scent, for starters. The formula is super effective, and comes infused with organic jojoba, rosehip oils and aloe vera to ensure the skin doesn’t dry out. The inclusion of these precious ingredients means this product is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones, and the price point of $36.00 doesn’t mean its completely out of the range of most natural and organic beauty fans.
So, where can you get it? Well INIKA products are stocked at Smith and Caughey’s and selected health stores and salons throughout New Zealand, and with this baby on counter right now I highly recommend you pay your nearest stockist a visit.
