This brand is so good! It’s so popular in Europe and the rest of the world though in the United States it is slowly becoming a beauty fan favorite.

formulas. These micelles have a lipophilic core that attract oil and
HOW DOES IT WORK?
When micelles interact with the skin, they naturally lift dirt, oil,
makeup, and even pollution on contact with no harsh rubbing necessary.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Makeup and impurities are trapped in the micelles oil absorbing core and
are dissolved from the skin leaving it perfectly cleansed, hydrated and
refreshed. No rinse necessary.
