These particles cling to any gunk, grime, and impurities such as makeup and get them all off in one sweeping motion. No foaming, no scrubbing, no rinsing, and definitely no stripping away the skins’ natural moisture balance. Simply soak some onto a cotton pad and let the miracle-worker do its thing. You could also try Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water as a thrifty drugstore dupe.
