In years to come, we predict that the only skincare product you’ll need in your bathroom is micellar water. The beauty industry is obsessed with this makeup remover – but that’s not all it’s good for. Here are five more ways to use this all-in-one product (BRB while we fill our trollies).

Hack 1: Cleaning makeup brushes

Micellar water can help draw out old makeup and bad bacteria from your makeup brushes.

  1. Pour some micellar water into a bowl.
  2. Swirl your brush around in the micellar water until it is well soaked.
  3. Squeeze all the water out of the brush with your fingers, then repeat for an extra cleanse.
  4. No need to rinse with water as the micellar water will keep it soft. Just leave to dry standing upright.

Hack 2: Removing makeup stains

We all know how annoying it is when you get a bit of makeup on your clothing. Just put a small amount of micellar water on a cotton wool pad and dab it onto the stain – it should come straight out.

Hack 3: Fragrance remover

If you’ve tried on a new perfume and regretted it instantly, wipe it away pronto with micellar water on a cotton wool pad.

Hack 4: Fake tan fixer

Fake tan disaster? No problem. Where your tan has developed a bit too orange, blot the excess colour with a cotton pad soaked in micellar water until it has faded.

Hack 5: Taking off eyelash glue

Having trouble keeping your hands on those tiny lash-remover bottles that come with the lashes? Try using micellar water.

  1. Dip a cotton bud into micellar water and wipe it across your lash line until your fake lashes come loose.
  2. Gently remove the lashes.
  3. Remove the remaining glue from your eyes with a cotton wool pad soaked with micellar water.
