Micellar water has received a lot of buzz in the beauty world thanks to its gentle yet effective cleaning powers, but it’s actually been many a French woman’s skincare staple since the ‘90s. The game-changing cleanser came to fruition as a solution to France’s harsh tap water, and it’s quickly become a multi-tasking beauty buy that’s a less harsh and less drying alternative to regular ol’ H2O and even makeup remover wipes.
There are a lot of well-praised micellar waters on the market, but few are as loved as Bioderma’s Micellar Cleansing Water. With a celebrity fan base that counts practically every A-lister imaginable, including Lucy Hale, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Drew Barrymore, Natalie Portman, and Khloe Kardashian, and mind-blowing sales stats that suggest one bottle is sold every two seconds, this French pharmacy favorite has rightfully earned its “world famous” title. And right now, it’s on sale during Amazon Prime Day for just $10, the lowest it’s been since December 2019, according to Keepa’s price tracker.

The popular micellar water is incredibly gentle on the epidermis, as it’s free of harsh oils, parabens, and alcohol that can mess with the skin’s natural pH, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less effective than other facial cleansers. In fact, Biorderma’s cleansing water promises to remove 99 percent of makeup and 98 percent of fine airborne pollutants that most average face washes and wipes miss. It effectively removes all impurities while still respecting the skin’s biological balance, and unlike some makeup remover wipes, micellar water, when applied on a soft cotton pad, requires significantly less rubbing, which means less irritation.
Bioderma’s micellar water has consistently been an Amazon best-seller, averaging a 4.7-star rating and close to 10,000 five-star reviews, with plenty of customers deeming it their “holy grail” skincare product. “The best micellar water, never looking back,” wrote one shopper. “Removes waterproof mascara and foundation quickly and easily without scrubbing… The formula is so gentle, it just feels like water and the scent is very, very mild. Did not irritate my very sensitive skin.”
Another wore, “My holy grail micellar water! Effortlessly removes my makeup and formula deep cleans. Only kind I’ve ever tried that doesn’t break me out and actually improves the look of my skin.”
Whether you’re a die-hard Bioderma fan looking to stock up or have yet to try out this world-famous micellar water, now’s the absolute best time to buy it.
