If you wear makeup, have acne, or simply love minimalist skincare, micellar water may already be a staple in your routine. Brought to the American beauty market from France (where it's considered a skincare must-have), this common cleanser lifts impurities like dirt, oil, makeup, and sunscreen from pores, cleansing your skin without overly drying it.

For Drew Barrymore, actress and founder of clean cosmetic line Flower Beauty, micellar water is the ultimate method of removing makeup. Over Instagram, Barrymore took followers into her bathroom to demonstrate how her latest find from Garnier "takes makeup right off" (adding, it's "the coolest thing you've ever seen"). What the star didn't mention is that this micellar water has some serious anti-aging benefits.
