Sensitive, acne-prone and mature skin take note: this gentle micellar cleanser with native Australian Desert Lime extract is a game-changer, working like a mini sponge to gently mop up dirt and makeup without removing the natural oils on the skin surface. Read more about Micellar Water and Desert Lime.

Key ingredients:

  • Micelles: tiny balls of oil molecules that are suspended in soft water to gently draw out impurities without drying out the skin or disrupting pH levels.
  • Native Australian Desert Lime extract: Rich in potent antioxidants and phytonutrients, this superfruit stimulates collagen, protects from UVA/B damaging light, reduces pigmentation and skin redness, improves skin hydration and even helps to reduce dark circles and under-eye puffiness.

Benefits:

Removes an entire face of makeup without leaving any oily residue behind. As well as cleansing, it also nourishes the skin thanks to the anti-ageing, anti-pollution benefits of native Australian Desert Lime. The no-rinse formula is perfect for travel, post-workout, cleaning makeup brushes, camping or visiting places where no running water is accessible.

Directions:

Place some micellar water on a cotton pad and wipe over the face to remove makeup, dirt and grime. There is no need to wash your face – you can follow with serum and moisturiser.
Best stored in a cool dark place.

Ingredients:

Aqua, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, PEG-6 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Glycerin, Citrus Glauca Fruit Extract, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium, Sorbate, Citric Acid, Betaine, Xylitol.

Let’s get technical.

Micellar water is basically a cleansing water made up of 2 essential ingredients-

  • Water or H₂O and
  • Surfactant/s (a substance that reduces the surface tension of a liquid in which it is dissolved)

How does a surfactant work and why add it to water?

Oil (such as sebum) and water usually repel each other as oil is a non-polar substrate and water a polar substrate (think about what happens when you place like poles of 2 magnets together……they repel each other. So to help water and oil stick together and form an emulsion we need to add a surfactant/s.

Surfactants are made up of 2 parts.

  1. A hydrophilic head (meaning its attracted to water)
  2. hydrophobic tail (meaning it repels water and attracts oil).

When surfactants are added to water they assemble themselves into clusters called micelles. These clusters are spherical in shape and resemble a pin cushion with the tails of the surfactant/s meeting together in the middle of the ball and the heads assembling around the perimeter.

Pouring micellar water onto a cotton pad results in the rearrangement of micelles out from their spherical orientation and into a monolayer with their heads buried into the cotton pad (a polar substrate) and their tails in the air.

When the cotton pad is the swiped across skin, excess sebum (oil), dirt and make up (non polar substrates) are attracted to and bind with the tails of surfactants, allowing them to be absorbed and swept away.

    After months of seeing Micellar water dominating the shelves of pharmacies, beauty salons and social media I had to see what this craze was all about and why it’s still running so strong. I’ve tried and tested many skin care brands over the years but decided to stick with my favourite new Aussie skin care label Claire Hill and I am completely obsessed! This Micellar water gets it just right for my sensitive skin which is easily prone to irritation. No redness or tingling ? I use the product after I have cleansed to remove all my excess make up. Mascara included!!!! I also use the product in the morning as part of my beauty routine simply because I just love how it leaves me feeling fresh-faced and refreshed. The only negative about this product is that it’s so good my husband keeps stealing it! Time to order a his and hers bottle!

    ABSOLUTELY LOVE!!
    I cannot recommend this highly enough. I purchased the serum and moisturiser and received this for free and am I glad I did!!! I have been completely converted. This stuff is amazing not only does it remove EVERY ounce of my makeup and dirt and grime it doesn’t hurt my eyes or burn my skin. I am totally in love. I even cleaned my skin with my normal cleanser and followed up with the Micellar water and was beyond impressed that removed all that my cleanser hadn’t. Followed up with Serum and Moisteriser and I am in heaven. I am only about two weeks in and already having many compliments on my skin.

    The best products on the market for my sensitive skin. I purchased the trio pack and love all the products. My skin is the best it’s ever looked x

  • Rina

    Have recently purchased the trio and my skin is loving it! A little goes a long way and I can already see and feel the difference. Best skin care choice I’ve made xx

  • Lara Steele

    These products are the best ever.

  • Keturah

    I have recently purchased the Micellar cleansing water and I really love how it has no fragrance and how clean and fresh it makes my skin feel! I love all the Claire Hill products I would highly recommend to them! Love love love 🙂

  • Josie

    I highly recommend all 3 products. Been using for a few months now and my skin is so nourished and my skin is looking more youthful. Love the idea of not needing too many products to see the results I’m seeing.

  • Caroline Bice

    I have been using Claire Hill for nearly eight weeks and I’m in love. It’s by far the best skin care product I have ever used. It’s the first time I have had skincare that hasn’t made my skin flare up or break out and it is the easiest to use. I actually look forward to using it twice a day! My favourite would be the serum as it is super light and non-greasy.. I’ve always steered away from serums as they made my skin really oily but this one is divine! Thank you Loretta Hill for creating such a wonderful product 🙌🏻

  • Nicolette Smith

    For the past eight weeks (plus one), I have been using @clairehill Australia, and I LOVE THIS PRODUCT.

    I discovered @clairehill via social media and was curious to learn more. I was pleased to find out after eight weeks that this product does exactly what it claims to do.

    This EASY three-step routine is perfect for my skin and is truly the lazy girl dream. It is also perfect for my sensitive skin.

    The area around my eyes and lips became firmer! My forehead was more forgiving of my wrinkles, which was my biggest insecurity. My skin changed dramatically, especially following a breakout from stress and medication. The pigmentation and overall feel were smooth and hydrated. My skin is tighter but soft… like bouncy but not puffy… you follow me? Anyway, it feels incredible!

    I would and have recommended this product to friends and family (and you). Check out their Instagram and CH community for photos of actual results you will not be disappointed. They will also answer questions you have!!

    The micellar water actually cleans your face leaving it fresh not oily like the other brands.

    The S8-28 ASSIST has assisted my skin in creating Firmer, Plumper and Brighter skin. It is an excellent replacement for those extra serums like vitamin C and hyaluronic acid because it is all-inclusive.

    S8-28 moisturiser is an alternative to injectable using SNAP-8 technology to smooth your skin. It is a thick and absorbent product that leaves your face soft to touch.

    Say #byefelicia to wrinkles!!

    Thank you, @lorettahill, for allowing me to try your amazing product.

    The Claire Hill Trio has ended my eternal search for the best skincare routine. At the tender age of 49, I have finally found it. All 3 products work wonderfully together and really have plumped and hydrated my skin. Having very sensitive eyes I am so relieved that the products don’t irritate. Claire Hill Trio you have won me!

  • Samantha

    I have been using the Claire Hill Trio for over 8 weeks now and I can’t speak highly enough of these products. The biggest difference I have seen is the brightness in my skin, especially underneath my eyes, my skin looks and feels hydrated (even in winter), my pigmentation has faded and my fine lines have also started to fade. Claire Hill skin products have given me the confidence I was lacking and I can’t stop smiling know that I have found a skincare product that works for me. Than you so much to Claire Hill for allowing me to try their amazing products.

  • Michelle

    I have never been good at sticking to a skincare routine but I decided to give Claire Hill my full commitment!! I love it and can’t recommended it highly enough.

  • Lorraine

    For the past 8 weeks, I have been using Claire Hill skincare. Thank you for the amazing skincare that has helped my skin to feel and look better. I can see results within days. I love that my skin feels softer and has more even skin tone especially the area beneath my eyes. My skin is brighter and I feel confident even without putting make up on.

    It is not easy to find the right skincare that would help me especially through winter. These products are the best ever! I am so thankful that I have found Claire Hill! Claire Hill gives me confidence and beauty. My utmost thanks to the beautiful amazing Claire Hill founder!
